Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues. Prolonged or intense feelings of anxiety  can negatively impact our relationships and career. This can lead to panic attacks and depression. There are different therapies for anxiety, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or counselling.

Anxiety is a natural human response when we perceive that we are under threat. But it can become a mental health problem if it impacts on your ability to live your life as fully as you want to.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder:

People who suffer with Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) experience constant, unrelenting feelings of anxiety and stress which can produce side-effects such as sweating, tension and avoidant behaviour.

Panic attacks
A panic attack is a rapid feeling of intense fear or discomfort that reaches a peak within a few short minutes.

It presents in a number of ways including:

  • Heart palpitations
  • Accelerated heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Nausea/stomach pain
  • Dizziness/light-headedness,
  • Derealisation (feelings of unreality)
  • Depersonalisation (being detached from oneself)
  • Fear of losing control or fear of dying.

Panic attacks are extremely unpleasant and can be very frightening. They can leave the sufferer paranoid about further panic attacks, resulting in changes to their lifestyle so as to avoid triggering situations.

Therapies for anxiety:

At The Eaves our therapists offer specialist therapies such as CBT for anxiety which can help you to learn the roots causes of your panic attacks, the warning signs and identifying triggers for it. It also provides you a safe place to learn new skills and coping mechanisms so you can respond differently to stressful situations, and ultimately take back control of your life.

I felt confident talking about problems I was having in my life. Has really made a difference for me and helped me understand myself/thoughts/feelings a lot better.

I was impressed by how quickly I could talk to someone and arrange my first session. [my Counsellor] has been great as a therapist – she put me at ease immediately, made me feel comfortable and helped me see things in different ways that will help going forward. Thanks everyone.

This experience has been positive and supportive. I feel more in control and empowered. I still have the issues but am currently more confident to deal with my emotions. Thank you.
