Anxiety CBT Aberdeen, Counselling for Anxiety Aberdeenshire and therapy at Possibilities: helping you overcome your anxieties and worries.
Do you find your self over-thinking? Do you often worry and fear the worst? Do you suffer from frequent headaches and other aches and pains? Are you easily tired? Do you find yourself avoiding situations you think might be difficult to manage?
"Your mind, this globe of awareness is a starry universe. When you push off with your foot, a thousand new roads become clear." Rumi.
With anxiety, in addition to the feeling of anxiety you may also experience physical and other symptoms, such as: heart-racing, tightness in your chest, shortness of breath, shaky sensations, abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, sleep and concentration problems, feeling out of control and detached. You may also start avoiding situations that seem to trigger your anxiety symptoms.
We all experience anxiety when faced with challenging situations such as going through stressful life events. For example, changing job, losing someone close or trying to adapt to the demands of everyday life. We all worry about our life, health, relationships and the future to varying degrees. These worries can become more intense when unexpected events occur.
Sometimes it is not entirely clear why we are experiencing high levels of anxiety.
One of the main contributions to anxiety persisting and becoming problematic is when you begin to become anxious about your anxiety and start worrying about your worrying.
Anxiety is a normal human emotion. However, when it occurs too often or is severe and is interfering with your normal functioning, relationships and daily activities, you should consider seeking anxiety counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
Sometimes when anxiety persists it can lead to low mood and depression.
The good news is that no matter how long anxiety has been a problem for you or how bad it is, regardless of age, anxiety problems are very treatable.
Anxiety counselling such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) can help you develop more effective ways of coping with your thinking, feelings, body sensations and behaviours and getting your life back on track.
Learning to manage your anxiety takes courage, commitment and practice. It is very hard to overcome anxiety and maintain motivation on your own. A therapist can guide you through the process and help you learn and apply effective anxiety management techniques to your own situation.
