What is Anxiety Counselling?
Anxiety counselling helps individuals suffering from various levels of anxiety learn healthier and more effective methods of coping with their anxiety. We will help address the root cause of a person’s anxiety, along with the possible triggers that produce an anxiety attack. Events or environments that require constant stimulation and involvement are more prone to causing anxiety attacks. Supporting the nervous system by teaching it how to regulate feelings of stress and anxiety can create change from the bottom up, meaning from the roots of the anxiety in such a way that anxiety symptoms reduce and resolve.
Through anxiety counselling, patients will learn to understand how their thoughts, emotions and past experiences contribute to anxiety attacks. By addressing and changing these patterns, patients can reduce the likelihood and intensity of their anxiety symptoms.
At Shoreline Counselling, patients will learn new techniques to help reduce negative behaviors associated with anxiety disorders. Patients may be encouraged to participate in activities and situations that provoke feelings of anxiety (ie. public speaking) in order to reduce feelings of fear associated with these situations or environments.
