How counselling can help
Counselling can help you to better understand what makes you anxious, and why. It can help you come to terms with being an anxious person or somebody who is prone to anxiety.
Whilst it may prove impossible or even undesirable to remove the anxiety, counselling can help you better understand your thought patterns, recognise your particular triggers for anxiety, and to build coping mechanisms that work for you. This should help you avoid some of the ‘downward spirals’ you have experienced in the past, and learn to live with anxiety rather than experience it as frustrating at best, and overwhelming and debilitating at worst.
Counselling can serve as a useful alternative or as a complement to any anti-anxiety medication already prescribed by your GP, as well as a way of exploring what it’s like for you to be taking prescribed medication.
