Are you experiencing a difficult relationship? Feeling helpless, lost and confused with low self-esteem? Perhaps a significant loss or trauma has left you feeling numb, anxious or stuck, even if years have passed since the event? I can offer a calm and welcoming space where you will be heard without judgement and can confidentially explore these difficult emotions at your own pace to start to make sense of what has happened and what it means for you. I have additional experience working with relational, childhood, sexual, domestic, and vicarious trauma and my aim is to support you in discovering a new way forward.

Are you feeling constantly anxious or stressed? Does life feel overwhelming and out of control? Maybe you are suffering from panic attacks and a nagging sense that ‘something is wrong’ or perhaps you’re getting angry for no reason and pushing everyone away. You may also be overthinking everything, doubting yourself, not knowing who you are anymore. Anxiety, stress and trauma show up in many different ways, all of them exhausting and debilitating. Sometimes we know what the cause is but often comes from a deeper, less obvious place. I help clients to feel calmer, happier and more in control of their lives and emotions.

When life gets difficult, the most courageous thing we can do for ourselves, is to reach out for help. Counselling is for anybody making their journey through the challenges of life. You might feel overwhelmed or just a little bit ‘stuck.’ Day-to-day tasks might be a struggle. You might have lost someone – recently or in the past. There might be changes in your life or difficult decisions to be made. Perhaps a past event keeps popping up, influencing the present more than you would like? Counselling can help.

Need help with anxiety & stress, feeling sad & depression, or loss & bereavement? Counselling can help you see your current situation in a new light, depth and clarity. Instinctively, we know talking helps, but when life’s challenges and struggles overwhelm us, it may be difficult to talk to those we're closest to about how we truly feel. When dealing with transitions, dilemmas and crises, or times of uncertainty and loss, we may need the support of someone trained to help us move forward.

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 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.
