Anxiety treatment by a psychologist can be very effective. My Psychologist is very experienced in helping people manage their anxiety.
Everyone at some stage will experience anxiety. It is a normal reaction and response to a stressful event or perceived threat. Anxiety can range from severe panic, worry or just an uneasy feeling. When a person experiences anxiety, he/she will assess the situation and make predictions as to how well they will cope based on past experiences.
When the anxiety is high, a person may not come up with an effective way of managing the situation. This might cause a person to “freeze”, avoid the situation, or even do something that is out of character.
Symptoms of anxiety can include:
- A racing heart
- Feelings of choking
- Fear of the worst happening
- Feeling scared
- Upset stomach
- Ruminating thoughts
My Psychologist is very experienced to provide quality anxiety treatment for our clients. Through Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) we will show clients how to change their catastrophising thinking, let go of their worries and reduce their avoidance of feared situations.
Medication may need to be prescribed by a doctor. We will work collaboratively and closely with your doctor to ensure you receive the best possible anxiety treatment.
We will help clients with muscle relaxation and breathing techniques. Lifestyle factors will also be discussed and supported. These include exercise planning, reducing caffeine, reviewing nutrition and sleep hygiene.
