Stress and Anxiety

How do I know if I have anxiety?

Anxiety can manifest differently for different people, but signs can include:

  • Excessive worry
  • Restlessness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sleeping issues
  • Panic attacks
  • Avoiding social situation
  • Extreme fears

Where do I start?

Taking the first step to address anxiety issues is almost always the most difficult step. Anxiety tells us to avoid, distract and ignore. But you don’t have to allow your anxiety to prevent you from healing. It is important clients know they will be treated with warmth and acceptance, and will be in control of the direction of therapy at all times. Questions are encouraged and initial sessions will make a point of approaching anxiety in a manageable way.

What can I expect in a therapy session?

Find the cause

Work to identify and understand what causes your anxiety. Finding the underlying roots of your anxiety will provide useful information you can use to make change.

Explore your anxiety

Learn what is creating high levels of anxiety, identify unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, reframe the way you see yourself and the world and let go of what is holding you back.

Create an individualized plan

Discuss your best therapeutic options based on your goals and individual needs. Individual plans will incorporate coping skills to help you manage anxiety better in the now, as well as processing and working through underlying factors to give you true freedom.
