Empowering you to overcome anxiety

Are you constantly plagued by worry and fear, unable to shake off the feeling of dread that follows you everywhere you go?  Do you find yourself stuck in overthinking? Do you struggle to live in the now, with your mind projecting into an imaged future, unable to enjoy the present?  A sense that time is passing with little pleasure in your world.  If anxiety has become a constant companion in your life, know that you're not alone, and there is hope for relief and a quieter mind.

Understanding Anxiety

Anxiety is a natural response to stress, but when it becomes overwhelming and interferes with your daily life, it's time to take back some control, rather than the anxiety having control over you. From generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) to panic disorder, phobias, and social anxiety, anxiety can manifest in various forms, each presenting its own set of challenges.

Living with anxiety can be exhausting and overwhelming.  It can look like overthinking, difficulties in sleeping, nail biting, the avoidance of certain situations and experiences, stomach and bowel problems, concentration difficulties, feeling on edge, heart palpitations and a racing heart, sweaty hands, feeling lightheaded, grinding your teeth at night, nausea.  Recognise some of these symptoms? 

How Therapy Can Help

Therapy offers a safe and supportive environment to explore the underlying causes of your anxiety, develop coping strategies to manage your symptoms, and learn techniques to cultivate resilience and peace of mind.

Benefits of Therapy for Anxiety

Identifying Triggers: In therapy, you'll work with Lorraine to identify the triggers and underlying factors contributing to your anxiety, whether they're rooted in past experiences, negative thought patterns, or external stressors.

Psychoeducation: Explore the intricate workings of your nervous system and delve into the fascinating neuroscience that governs your body and mind's responses. Gain empowering insights to better understand and regulate yourself.

Developing Coping Skills: Therapy equips you with practical coping skills and relaxation techniques to manage your anxiety symptoms, empowering you to regain control over your thoughts and emotions.

Challenging Negative Thoughts: Anxiety often stems from distorted or irrational thoughts. Through cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based approaches, in therapy you will challenge these negative thought patterns and replace them with healthier, more balanced perspectives.

Building Self-Confidence: Therapy can help you build self-confidence and self-esteem, enabling you to face your fears and confront anxiety-provoking situations with greater resilience and self-assurance.
