At different times in life we may encounter both external and internal difficulties and the psyche talks to us in various ways: sometimes through symptoms of insomnia or depression, anxiety or recurring thoughts, feelings of emptiness and despair - sometimes through inner questions of meaning, an urge to know more and wish to find our place. We may be confronted with personal dilemmas that seem unlikely to be solved, and feel trapped or imprisoned. Jungian psychoanalysis is a journey to find the roots of such difficulties, to better understand the meaning underlying our suffering and to help integrate these insights into our life.

We can all find life uncertain and overwhelming at times. Sometimes a crisis arises that feels unresolvable without professional help, or maybe events from the past weigh on us for no apparent reason. I have found the most common reasons to seek psychotherapy are related to depression, stress, anxiety , challenges with eating, and relationship problems. Experience shows that our psyche is able to bring itself back into balance and heal itself, given the right circumstances. Therapy provides a supportive environment to discuss such concerns, explore underlying causes and strengthen our ability to make desired life changes.

You may be thinking about therapy due to depression, anxiety , loss, stress, burnout, relationship issues, life transitions such as parenthood and retirement. These concerns can feel more overwhelming when we live abroad in unfamiliar surroundings. Medication can provide short-term relief for emotional distress, but there are side effects. You may be concerned about how COVID 19 is affecting your work, your relationships and your life. This pandemic is challenging the world’s mental health in so many ways. You've been coping alone for a while and feel like having someone alongside you to explore your challenges.

Counsellor, PhD
In a therapeutic relationship in which we are ourselves without a social mask and fully present, our brains, the most amazing organs in the universe, are continually shaped. You don't need to succumb to anxiety , stress, and other negative emotions. False fears and wrong beliefs affect all of us, you are not alone. Thoughts are not facts. Once you have become proficient at identifying your automatic thoughts and emotions, you could live the life you love and love the life you live. When thinking about the most meaningful life for yourself, you could also consider your strengths and how to make use of your own great potential.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
