Anxiety & Panic Attacks

Anxiety is a normal human response to stressful or uncertain situations. However, anxious thoughts and feelings can be some of life’s most terrifying experiences and can be seen to come out of the blue and be almost unbearable to contain.

Anxiety and panic attacks can be the cause of early experiences and traumas that have not yet been uncovered and rationalised, (unremembered yet unforgettable). These experiences can be held in the body and in later life they can cause us great distress. Symptoms such as shortness of breath, racing heartbeat, trembling and dizziness often accompany panic attacks. Trying to understand the reasons why you feel anxious can be important in helping you explore and gain understanding of any underlying causes. Counselling can be a very helpful and positive contribution to overcoming feelings of anxiousness and panic. I will work with you to help you overcome anxious feelings and worrying thoughts.
