Anxiety Counselling North Brisbane
Being in constant state of fear or anxiety is no fun. It can stop you from doing activities, seeing friends, and going to certain places. It can even hijack your career. But you can get help. Psychotherapy and counselling are really effective tools for lessening the grip of anxiety on your life..
Read more below to see if you recognise any of the signs and symptoms of anxiety, and see how body psychotherapy and counselling can help you find your inner calm again.
Here are some techniques you can use to lessen the state of anxiety in your body:
- Constantly worrying? Ruminating (going over the same thing again and again)? Obsessive thinking? Experiencing excessive fear?
- Feeling your heart racing, constriction in your chest, shallow breathing, feeling tense and on the edge? Is your digestion system upset? Maybe you’re even having panic attacks. Perhaps you have PTSD.
- Problems getting to sleep or waking up in the middle of the night worrying?
- Using food, alcohol or other sedatives to calm yourself down?
- Avoiding people, places or things that make you feel anxious?
Would you like to get some help?
- When you’re anxious your thoughts are usually speeding ahead to the future. So we’re going to bring you right back to the present moment. We’ll slow everything right down. We may use some mindfulness techniques. Or we may focus on your breathing and relaxation techniques.
- Perhaps we’ll do some gentle movement to ‘ground’ you. This is simply a moving form of mindfulness and it means bringing your focus to right now in the present time (and it stops you thinking about the future).
- And we’ll talk. We’ll explore what’s going on in your life that’s creating anxiety. We’ll look at what’s triggering you. We’ll look at what’s happened in your past that may be coming up now.
- We might add in some postures or movement to help drain away the tension in your body and help relax your nervous system.
- Or perhaps some breathing exercises to slow and deepen your breath to get more oxygen into your body.
- We’ll come up with some strategies that work for you.
