Anxiety can seem overwhelming when you are in the middle of it.
Anxiety can also feel very frightening and even humiliating.
Fortunately anxiety tends to take a rather limited number of forms which are:
- social anxiety
- obsessions and compulsions
- worry (GAD)
- health anxiety
- post trauma anxiety.
When you suffer from anxiety and looking for help from a psychotherapist, it is important to ensure you get a careful assessment so your particular kind of anxiety is correctly identified.
This can make a huge difference to the speed of your recovery.
For many people talking through the source of anxiety with a professional psychotherapist can be very helpful.
In addition to this, if it is needed, I also train people in mindfulness, meditation and self hypnosis relaxation techniques, and teach clients new cognitive behavioural techniques to help with their anxiety.
Anxiety can be one of the worst things the mind can do to you, in terms of severity and its impact on your quality of life.
It is important to get help from a psychotherapist early so you can start living an anxiety free life as soon as possible.
