Anxiety & Panic Attacks

What is Anxiety?

(Anxiety Counselling Glasgow)

When we find ourselves experiencing anxiety, we are busy living in the future rather than being in the moment (where we can bring about meaningful change in our lives). Having some anxiety in our lives is healthy and indeed, useful, however, anxiety can become very overwhelming and can affect our ability to function, including our ability to concentrate, to regulate our emotions and to relax or sleep. For some, it can be a frightening experience. I specialise in working with anxiety including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Illness Anxiety (Health Anxiety), Social Anxiety as well as OCD and Panic. 

I specialise in helping you to make sense of your anxiety by supporting you in exploring past experiences, unhelpful beliefs, triggers and unpacking what thoughts and behaviours keep you'stuck' in the anxiety cycle. We will work on developing helpful coping strategies and using evidence-based techniques to support you on your journey. I like to think about this as you becoming your own therapist!

 

Perhaps you find yourself worrying about everything and anything (even the things that are least likely to happen). It may feel like your worries are excessive and uncontrollable. Do you 'catastrophise' (your mind races to the worst case scenario)? I am experienced in working with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, allowing you to understand your worry and helping you to use helpful tools and techniques to manage and quieten your worry .

 

Perhaps your anxieties are more specific such as worrying about being in social situations, for a variety of reasons (Social Anxiety). Or, you may be anxious about health related worries/thoughts and find yourself predicting the worst case scenario (Illness Anxiety / Health Anxiety). 

Are panic attacks taking over your life? Often there is fear of having anxiety present and fear about potentially having another panic attack. We can work on exploring your triggers and helping you understand what is happening in your body (psychoeducation/physiological education) when you experience episodes of panic and how to manage these feelings in order to minimise the panic attacks and perhaps even stop them altogether.

 

Specialising in working with anxiety disorders, I am experienced in helping you to understand your difficulties and in promoting use of more helpful coping strategies to help reduce and manage your anxieties, allowing you to lead your best life. Please feel welcome to get in touch if you would like some further information. I am a CBT Therapist, based in Glasgow, working remotely with clients UK-wide. If you are looking for anxiety counselling, please get in touch.
