Anxiety

Life Resolutions offers anxiety counselling from our Kingsford clinic to people who feel overwhelmed by anxiety.

It is said that our levels of stress can either be helpful or unhelpful. When we are in danger and need to swing into fast, effective action, then our stress is considered positive stress. For example, when we have an approaching deadline and need motivation to either start or finish a task, then stress is useful.

However, if we are in situations when our stress response is being continually spiked, then we can develop ‘negative stress’ which can become an anxiety disorder. This is when anxiety counselling may be necessary.

How can I tell if my stress is taking over?

  • Feeling edgy, restless or irritable – you may have nervous mannerisms like leg jiggling, nail biting, etc.
  • Awareness of pounding heartbeat, shortness of breath, tightening in chest and sweating
  • Muscle tension (pain in the back, shoulder, neck, jaw and teeth clenching and grinding)
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Fearful of social situations such as workplace meetings or parties
  • Starting to avoid those situations
  • Feeling anxious about everyday events
  • Feelings of helplessness or confusion
  • Difficulty in concentrating
  • Panic attacks
  • Headaches
  • Trouble sleeping – you either can’t fall asleep for ages or wake up suddenly in the early hours and can’t get back to sleep
  • Constantly tired

How can I get help?

Unchecked anxiety can impact all parts of your life. It can prevent people from fully partaking in relationships and work. Anxiety can also co-occur with depression – a double whammy.

Anxiety counselling can help the sufferer identify any current unhelpful coping strategies such as substance dependence – how often do we catch ourselves using alcohol to wind down at the end of a hectic day?

Your therapist will help you establish healthy strategies to cope with and effectively handle sustained stressors.

Effective treatment helps people overcome anxiety and lead fulfilling and more relaxed lives. At Life Resolutions Kingsford, anxiety counselling is offered by qualified psychologists for the southeast Sydney region to assist people in overcoming anxiety.
