Anxiety & Panic

Counselling for Anxiety and Panic

Anxiety and panic attacks can severely impact daily life and can prevent you from fully enjoying activities. 

Anxiety encompasses feelings of worry, tension, and fear about future events and it is normal to experience feelings of anxiety during times of stress or significant life changes. It can manifest through thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations, and is a common experience for many people.

Some common symptoms of anxiety

  • Feeling detached from life or others around you
  • Sweating, sweaty palms, nausea, upset stomach
  • Lack of concentration
  • Tense muscles, trembling or a sense of nervousness and restless 
  • Increased heart rate
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Rapid breathing
  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
  • Feeling of panic

Some common responses to anxiety

Numbing out through medication, substances, avoidance and withdrawal from situations may be used as a way of coping by trying to control anxiety-inducing situations or the associated symptoms. These coping techniques may provide temporary relief, however, it ultimately reinforces anxiety and makes it stronger rather than it going away which can have a dramatic impact of your life. 

Counselling can support you in understanding your triggers and in learning new ways of coping and managing the symptoms of anxiety so that you are in control and not the anxiety.
