Anxiety

Feeling worried when we experience a stressful event in our lives is a common and natural reaction. However, when the stressful event passes and the feeling of worry remains, we refer to this continual feeling of worry as anxiety.

Anxiety can be related to many things including situations (such as having a meeting at work), social events (such as going to a party), and performance (such as sitting an exam or test).

Anxiety can have a wide impact on your life and can affect elements such as general wellbeing, relationships, physical health, job performance/satisfaction and your ability to complete day-to-day activities. The impact of anxiety can impact many different areas of your life.

How Counselling Can Help

At Life Resolutions, Sunshine, our psychologists are skilled at addressing and helping individuals understand the triggers and underlying issues that may be causing  anxiety. THey can teach you research backed, practical strategies to help manage anxiety, and increase coping in various situations.

If you are able to identify, understand, and learn about your triggers, you will have more control over the anxiety. When our bodies continuously feel anxious, our brains will form a constant loop of anxiety, always looking for the threat. Without professional help, this can become overwhelming and can lead to other mental health concerns such as depression or anger.
