aNXIETY Counselling

Many of us feel times of anxiety, it is a normal human feeling when in a potentially threatening or difficult situation. Sometimes feelings of anxiety can be stronger than normal and last for a long time, these anxious feelings can be understood and treated using a variety of approaches. I aim to provide individual, tailor-made and flexible treatment programmes based on expertise, qualified approach and experience.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety comes from our ‘flight or fight’ response. This occurs when our body perceives itself in danger, The fight or flight response is an automatic reaction which we have no control over. Our bodies release hormones, such as adrenaline & cortisol to prepare us to run or fight.

Normally when a threat has gone our body triggers a different set of chemicals or hormones to help us return to a more calm state and we relax after the adrenaline rush. However, with the anxiety fight or flight response, this does not always happen. Going forward we then associate the fearful situations as if they are dangerous causing a cycle of overactive anxiety.
