What is Anxiety and Panic Attack
Anxiety is a state of mind. It is a sense that something is wrong and we have little control over it.
There are many types of anxiety. Maybe we are anxious about travel, or an exam. The impact of the anxiety could mean that we don’t enjoy the holiday – from the lead-up, the getting there and being anxious all the time we are there until we return home. Or for an exam the impact is that we don’t give of our best and so don’t achieve the result we are hoping for.
Symptoms of anxiety include
Inability to stay calm
Being cold or sweaty – especially hands of feet
Difficulty in concentrating – worry about the present feeling
Feeling weak (weak legs, weak body)
Feeling short of breath
Will Anxiety Therapy Help Me?
There are different counselling techniques that could be used; I would choose the one (or more) depending on the circumstances. For example, if the anxiety was brought on by an experience long in the past then I would probably use psychodynamic techniques for anxiety therapy.
Give me a call, we can talk about your anxiety and/or panic attacks and the impact it has on you. We can set-up an exploratory session to start the process. I have been through these issues many times and can help you.
