Anxiety and panic can be emotionally disabling. They can disrupt your working life and damage your ability to form friendships or personal attachments.
Counselling can help you to understand and contain overwhelming anxiety. It can also help you to reduce its impact on your daily life.
Different forms of anxiety include:
- Panic attacks
- Social anxiety
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Fear about the future
Anxiety sufferers sometimes find that their thoughts return helplessly and obsessively to the same disturbing themes. Problems can be exaggerated to a point where they appear insoluble. Anxiety can manifest itself in physical problems such as difficulties with sleeping or digestion. It may even develop into depression.
How can counselling help?
Counselling can help in these circumstances by offering tools and techniques for breaking the habitual cycle of escalating anxiety. It can also place anxiety in a new perspective by examining and providing insight into its origins.
