Counselling for Anxiety

Many are searching online to get help for anxiety, posing questions such as: “Why do I feel so anxious?”; "How do I stop feeling so anxious?"; or even, "Am I going crazy?".

So, what is anxiety and where does it come from?

Where does Anxiety come from?

A common understanding about anxiety is that it is directly related to fear, and fear is an emotional response to a real or perceived (imminent) threat. But unlike fear, anxiety is not always a reaction to a real threat, but more an anticipation of a future threat (real or perceived).

In addition to current circumstances or events that may produce anxious feelings, anxiety can also emerge and remain in a "chronic" state. This type of enduring anxiety can occur because of deep set beliefs or perceptions, often derived from earlier experiences, or from a perceived lack of control over circumstances - resulting in shaken confidence.

Can Counselling Help with Anxiety?

Counselling for anxiety is designed to provide a safe environment to untangle or unravel the complexity that comes with anxiety, including identifying precipitating events, current circumstances, and cognitive perceptions that may lead to this troubling emotion.

A counsellor can help you take effective steps to reduce anxious reactions and move forward with greater peace of mind.
