Overcoming Anxiety with Counselling

Talking Therapy for Anxiety in Cranage & Allostock

Anxiety describes the feelings of worry, fear, and unease that can be brought on by a stressful situation or seemingly through no trigger. It can manifest both emotionally and physically and is related to the ‘fight of flight’ response. While unpleasant, anxiety is a natural human emotion, though some individuals can feel overwhelmed by their anxiety symptoms and may not know how to address them. Talking therapy and counselling for anxiety in Cranage can be very liberating in helping you understand and address your triggers and symptoms.

Counselling for Anxiety in Cranage

Don’t suffer alone with anxiety, speak to a counsellor. Talking therapy for anxiety can help you identify where your anxiety is coming from, what triggers it, and how best you can manage and overcome it. We will work together to identify coping techniques and rationalising mechanisms to ensure that you are fully equipped to address your anxiety symptoms when you are ready. It may be that you will benefit from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that will examine your anxious thoughts and break down any overwhelming problems into smaller, more manageable tasks. CBT may also help you challenge your distorted thoughts to become more realistic and balanced.

  • Rapid and/or irregular heartbeat
