    What is anxiety? 

    Sometimes the pressure we are under can become overwhelming and difficult to cope  with.  Anxiety can manifest itself in a variety of ways leaving us feeling scared and unable  to cope.  Past experiences may seem to stop us from moving forward  to the point  where it becomes almost impossible to carry out normal tasks without an all-consuming  feeling of dread that can ruin our interactions with life entirely. This is usually due to a  cycling of negative thoughts, combined with an inability to find an alternative  perspective,  that results in our minds rationalising these thoughts as being  true. By  discussing and looking at things in a different way we can move past these thoughts and  feelings. 

    How to reduce anxiety? 

    You may just want a better understanding of how anxiety might be affecting you.  Counselling can help you think outside of your regular thought patterns and remove  some ‘distorted thinking’ and will help develop a new perspective on your experiences,  giving you the tools to cope. I work with clients in a variety of ways including CBT and my  counselling style is conversational and informative. If you would like to work on the  issues that make you anxious, please do not hesitate to contact me.
