What is anxiety and how can it affect our lives?
While all of us can feel anxious at times, when the feeling is persistent and impacts on our daily lives it is known as anxiety. Anxiety over prolonged periods can leave us stressed, overwhelmed, irritable and many other feelings besides. This in turn can make it harder for us to participate in everyday activities that we might need or want to carry out leaving us feeling isolated, worried and sometimes just utterly worn out. Over time our confidence and self-esteem can begin to erode.
How can counselling help?
Talking to a counsellor can help us understand why we feel the way we do and what triggers feelings of panic and stress in our day to day life. In our sessions, we can explore what resources you already have and look to increase these strategies to help you feel more in control and have a better understanding of your personal goals, needs and aspirations.
