How can therapy help with anxiety?

Anxiety happens when our body senses threat or danger. This triggers our sympathetic nervous system, flooding our body with adrenaline and we get ready to stay and fight or run. Our system is trained for survival from an early age and in the modern world many things can cause us to feel unsafe and insecure.

A counsellor can help you understand what causes these feelings. Being curious about what triggers us and when we feel unsafe can help us discover the underlying issues for our anxiety. Sharing our problems with an empathic, non judgemental listener can help us see them objectively.

We can use mindfulness, meditation and breathing techniques to help you regulate yourself. The more you know about what triggers you, the greater control you will have over your feelings.
