You don’t have to deal with difficult feelings alone. Looking after your mental health is a priority don’t let feelings of anxiety and depression have a negative impact on your relationships work opportunities and overall emotional well-being. Don’t let unwanted past experiences, relationship difficulties and outdated self-perceptions cloud your here and now interactions. Unhelpful coping strategies thought patterns and beliefs can lead to self-destructive behaviours and feelings of despondency. By working through and identifying unhelpful patterns of coping, relating and functioning you can make the changes in your life.

Hello, I'm Emily - a modern, down-to-earth, integrative psychotherapist based in London and online. I specialise in working with Gen Y, Gen Z and the LGBTQ+ community. Sometimes I work within quite specific areas, including anxiety , burnout, interpersonal relationships, self-esteem, family dynamics, identity, and LGBTQ+ issues. At other times, people come to see me with a general sense of just wanting to feel more comfortable within themselves and their life - not because something in particular is 'wrong', but because they want things to feel more 'right'. Whatever it is that you want to explore in therapy, I will listen to you.

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.
