COUNSELLING FOR ANXIETY IN FAREHAM & SOUTHAMPTON


Anxiety disorders can develop when we are uneasy or fearful about something that might happen about a future event, situation, or circumstance. There can be a variety of triggers, from a bereavement, to the loss of a job, to sometimes a trauma, or even drug usage. Anxiety can turn into a disorder, when that worry becomes more pronounced and interferes with your normal day to day life. Many people experience periods of abnormal anxiety from time to time.

“Anxiety’s like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you very far.”
Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home

A person with anxiety may feel tense with uncomfortable physical sensations, such as: trembling, a racing heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and difficulty breathing. The severe and sudden onset of such symptoms is often indicative of a panic attack.

While brief episodes of appropriate anxiety are perfectly normal during challenging situations, anxiety disorders can reoccur, and sometimes worsen over time.

Anxiety and depression can affect up to 1 in 4 people in the general population. Simply coping with day to day life can be exhausting which can have a huge impact on your relationships and your work. Counselling and therapy helps you take control of your life and helps reduce the symptoms to eventually completely overcoming the problem, so you can return to a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

“Man is not worried by real problems so much as by his imagined anxieties about real problems”
Epictetus

Anxiety is at the root of many mental health conditions, including phobias and panic attacks, and it is often directly linked to other conditions, such as obsessions and compulsions, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), and depression. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), lists the following mental health issues as anxiety disorders:

Z

Separation anxiety

Z

Selective mutism

Z

Panic

Z

Specific phobias

Z

Social anxiety

Z

Agoraphobia

Z

Medication/substance-induced anxiety

Z

Generalised anxiety

When an anxiety sufferer cannot identify the source of their anxiety, counselling therapy can help.

COUNSELLING THERAPY FOR ANXIETY


Often, anxiety can interfere with relationships, sleeping patterns, eating habits, work, school, and routine activities. Anxiety is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy, and, in particular, talking therapies such as Counselling and Psychotherapy. Effective therapy can significantly reduce or eliminate symptoms associated with anxiety in a relatively short time, allowing a person to resume regular activities and regain a sense of control. Although people may not be able to identify the cause of their anxiety during therapy (which is often not necessary), after attending a few Counselling sessions at the Fareham Counselling Centre, many people obtain a set of skills to be able to manage and reduce their anxiety significantly, allowing them to live a happy, anxiety-free life again.

Hypnotherapy can also be effective in treating anxiety suffers. Click here for more details.
