Individual Counselling for Anxiety
What is Anxiety?
“Anxiety” is a word we hear often nowadays. Although it is very common, each person may experience it in very different ways.
For some people, they may notice it in their bodies, such as:
- a fast or loud heartbeat
- restlessness or difficulty sitting still
- shortness of breath
- inability to go to sleep despite being very tired
For others, they might notice a difference in brain functioning:
- a racing mind or inability to concentrate
- cannot stop worrying
Alternatively, you might feel dominated by uncomfortable feelings such as:
- a sense of doom (something bad is going to happen)
- nervousness or being on edge
Anxiety can range from mild to severe. At times, it can feel crippling and affects your day-to-day functioning. In my clinical experience, counselling can be beneficial regardless of the level of severity of your anxiety.
Even in mild cases, it can be a very good opportunity to gain the skills you need to equip you for the future. Taking a proactive approach will help prevent minor stressors from becoming overwhelming.
