Anxiety Counselling Bury
Counselling and Psychotherapy for Anxiety
Anxiety and depression are rife in our society today. More understanding is needed, but the fast-paced, stressful culture we live in certainly does not help. Conservative estimates suggest 1 in 20 people is presently struggling with anxiety or depression (i.e. at any one time!). Furthermore, 1 in 3 people will experience anxiety or depression in the course of their lifetime.
What is anxiety?
Feelings of worry, fear, unease or irritability that persist and become overwhelming, and affect our every day life an relationships. Associated physical symptoms include disrupted sleeping patterns, feeling nauseous, and raised blood pressure. At this stage there is the danger that it can become a mental health problem and result in a mental health disorder.
What can you do about it?
Firstly, you should meet with one our therapists in Bury for an initial consultation and assessment. We are highly skilled in assessing the degree of anxiety, and determining whether you may possibly have an anxiety disorder. You will then be presented with the various therapy or treatment options to resolve your anxiety symptoms. Evidence-based treatment options include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness and transactional analysis counselling or psychotherapy.
Rest assured, we have been successfully supporting people to resolve anxiety and depressive problems for over 20 years, and are confident that you can experience relief from such debilitating symptoms. Better still, and going beyond just ‘coping’ or ‘managing’ the anxiety symptoms, it’s possible to address the underlying structures (or root causes), and that can lock unhelpful thoughts, feeling and / or behaviours in place.
