Stress and Anxiety Treatment

Effective Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety and worry are normal reactions to fear and stress experienced by everyone at one time or another. A little bit of anxiety can actually be useful, as it motivates us to perform well. However, some levels of stress leave men and women feeling chronically anxious because the brain’s fight or flight mechanism is activated, even when there is no threat. This can result in panic attacks, anxiety attacks, social anxiety, PTSD, and extreme levels of stress. But really, it doesn’t have to be this way there is an effective anxiety treatment.

Anxiety treatment

Counselling for anxiety – I know what it is to experience anxiety and how it interferes with daily living. What I have learned along the way is its not about fixing anxiety, because anxiety is there to protect us; it is about your relationship with anxiety.  Effective anxiety treatment includes calming hyper-vigilant neural pathways that have developed in our brains, and creating new calmer pathways. It is about learning how to handle unwanted thoughts and feelings, becoming mindful of the present moment, and developing a deep sense of self-worth, self-acceptance, and self-compassion – enabling you to live a life you really care about.  

Low self-esteem and approval seeking. In some cases suffers of anxiety and depression also struggle with low self-esteem, and approval seeking. If this is you then your well-being is probably being affected by your level of confidence, how much you value yourself and what you think of yourself. Low self-esteem is associated with self-criticism, self-doubt, suppressed anger, and shame, and social isolation. Popular self help material encourages us to develop high self-esteem, but this is not the long term solution.
