Need Help with Anxiety or Panic?

If you suffer from stress and anxiety, the symptoms can be both frustrating and debilitating. At KlearMinds, our anxiety counsellors can show you steps that you can take to regain control.

With proven techniques for overcoming anxiety, obtaining stress relief and how to cure panic attacks, we can show you how to prevent and deal with your symptoms effectively and stop them ruining your life.

 

How can CBT for Anxiety Help?

Without recourse to effective strategies for understanding and addressing stress symptoms, your anxiety and panic attacks may increase, which in turn could create major problems in your relationships, in your work and your overall wellbeing.

Our London counsellors can help you fully understand the causes of stress, anxiety and panic. We will show you essential anxiety management techniques for dealing with stress, how to stop anxiety attacks, manage stressful situations confidently and calmly and overcome panic – for good.

Symptoms We Can Help With

Listed below are some of the common symptoms people experience when dealing with anxiety, stress or panic. Our CBT and anxiety counselling programme can help you find relief and develop the skills you need to minimise symptoms and cope confidently with the challenges you face, both now and in the future.

 

 

What is Anxiety

Anxiety is a perfectly normal feeling that we all experience now and again. It’s the body’s natural ‘fight or flight’ internal alarm system to alert us to danger, which puts us into a state of apprehension or fear as a reaction to a perceived threat, situation or event. Healthy levels of anxiety can be a good thing in that it helps you stay alert and focused, motivates you to solve problems and spurs you into action.

While it’s normal to feel anxious when we face a challenging and stressful situation such as an exam, a job interview, it can be a problem when anxiety is activated during normal everyday situations. If you have overwhelming worries or fears – with or without foundation – that are preventing you from living your life to the full, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder.

Are there different types of Anxiety Disorders?

There are 5 commonly diagnosed anxiety disorders:

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) – Chronic anxiety, exaggerated worry and fear even when there may be little or no apparent cause.

Panic Disorder – Unpredictable and repeated periods of intense fear, often with physical symptoms such as chest pain, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath or stomach pains.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) – Recurrent unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or behaviours (compulsions) that are often performed repeatedly but only provide temporary relief.

Phobias – Overwhelming fear of something that is unlikely to be dangerous, and that may be triggered by certain objects or situations.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) – Strong feelings of anxiety that develops after exposure to a traumatic event in which serious physical harm was threatened or actually occurred.

When should I get help with my anxiety?

If you’re not sure whether your anxiety is normal or becoming an anxiety disorder, it might help to ask yourself these questions to get a clearer picture.

• Are you regularly worried, tense and irritable or always on edge?
• Is your anxiety affecting your work or relationships?
• Do you suffer from irrational fears that just won’t go away, or sense danger and catastrophe around every corner?
• Do you feel that something bad will happen if you don’t do certain things in a particular way?
• Do you routinely avoid everyday situations because you feel anxious about them?
• Do you suffer from panic attacks with real physical symptoms such as chest pains, shortness of breath, nausea or stomach pains?
• Do you drink more or use drugs to cope with your anxieties?

Anxiety is a treatable condition, so there’s no reason why you should suffer in silence. Why not make an appointment with a KlearMinds anxiety counsellor to see how we can help?
