Are you struggling with anxiety? Feeling panicky or on edge? You are not any given time in the UK, 1 in 6 people experiences anxiety. The good news is that psychotherapy can help you find lasting freedom and relief. Research consistently shows that psychotherapy is the most effective option for relieving anxiety.


What is Anxiety?

Although uncomfortable, each of us experiences anxiety at one time or another. We have all felt worried or fearful at some point. World health, socio-economic, and political events (to name a few) over recent years and months have commonly prompted anxiety and uncertainty. A certain degree of anxiety can be useful, signalling that something requires our attention. While we all experience anxiety, how we experience it and its severity can vary from person to person.

Many worries come and go. However, if anxiety grows and feels too challenging to manage daily, it can become overwhelming or feel out of control. Therapy can help make sense of anxiety, whether mild, moderate or severe, and effective ways can be found to manage better and alleviate it.

Anxiety can impact the body, thoughts, feelings, and behaviour. It can also affect relationships and health; at its most extreme, it can fully arrest people’s lives. Avoiding the people, places or situations that cause anxiety, or trying to control things, may provide some immediate short-term relief. However, this can be exhausting for some and is not sustainable as a long-term solution.

There are several signs or symptoms that might indicate anxiety. Some examples are listed below that you may be able to relate to.

What are some signs and symptoms of anxiety?

If you are struggling with anxiety, you may notice that you are experiencing multiple symptoms, which include.

  • Feeling nervous, tense, or restless
  • Difficulties controlling worry
  • Rapid breathing or hyperventilating
  • Sweating
  • Increased heart rate/palpitations
  • Poor concentration or going blank
  • Gut problems (gastro-intestinal)
  • Feelings of impending doom
  • Feelings of panic
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Irritability
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Feelings of being out of control
  • Overthinking or racing thoughts

If you can relate to any of these symptoms, you needn't continue to suffer.


How Therapy Can help you

Whether you’ve been struggling with specific events or the cause of your anxiety is unclear, or you are worrying here and there or experiencing repeated panic attacks, I'm here to help.

As a  highly experienced, fully qualified, and empathetic fully registered Psychotherapist with a solid 23-year background in acute psychiatry, trauma recovery, and other mental health services, I specialise in offering anxiety counselling. This is to help you better manage, find relief and help you make lasting change.

I strongly believe in working at a pace that feels right for you. Therapy for anxiety can help you better understand it, identify the contributing/triggering factors, and implement self-care strategies to help you successfully manage or overcome it.

Where anxiety relates to a situation that cannot be changed, e.g., a bereavement, the therapy can help you to work on your outlook, assisting you to work on accepting things that cannot be changed.

I offer both Existential therapy to provide you with a safe space to express and process your anxiety and Cognitive-Behavioural therapy to help you establish new practical coping strategies to manage anxiety-related thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
