Anxiety Counselling

Anxiety is a common yet challenging experience that can significantly impact various aspects of your life. It often manifests as persistent worry, fear, or nervousness and can interfere with your daily activities, relationships, and overall well-being. My goal is to help provide the support and tools you need to manage and overcome it.

How Anxiety Affects You

Anxiety can be defined as the response we experience when faced with a threat, real or imagined. It’s a process that we all experience and isn’t always bad. It can help us to cope with tense situations, motivate us to work harder or stay focussed when working towards goal. However, chronic anxiety that is excessive and debilitating can interfere with our overall quality of life. Chronic anxiety is an intense feeling of fear of what might be. We often try to avoid the triggers leaving us, isolated, impacting daily function, our relationships, or even our employment. Anxiety can affect you in numerous ways, both physically and emotionally. 

Physical Symptoms

  • Increased Heart Rate: Anxiety often causes a rapid heartbeat, which can lead to feelings of palpitations.
  • Muscle Tension: Chronic anxiety can result in muscle tightness and pain, particularly in the neck, shoulders, and back.
  • Sweating: Excessive sweating, especially in social situations, is a common physical response to anxiety.
  • Fatigue: Persistent anxiety can lead to feelings of exhaustion and decreased energy levels.
  • Sleep Disturbances: Anxiety often causes difficulty falling or staying asleep, leading to poor quality rest and exacerbating other symptoms.

Emotional and Cognitive Symptoms

  • Persistent Worry: Constantly worrying about everyday situations, even when there is no immediate threat.
  • Irritability: Feeling easily agitated or frustrated, often without a clear reason.
  • Difficulty Concentrating: Struggling to focus on tasks or remember information.
  • Restlessness: An inability to relax or sit still, feeling on edge.

Behavioral Symptoms

  • Avoidance: Avoiding situations or activities that trigger anxiety, which can limit your personal and professional growth.
  • Compulsive Behaviors: Engaging in repetitive actions or rituals to try to manage anxiety.
