Counselling Birkdale - Auckland
--- I only offer online counselling ---
Anxiety is very common and is generally a state of over concern about what is occurring and what we feel may occur in the future. From experience I see there is no one guaranteed fix to anxiety so I typically explore the issue brought.
I provide a space to explore the emotions related to the anxiety at hand. Sometimes there has been a past experience with the issue which is requiring a Counselling space to emotionally explore and work through.
At other times however we will look at thoughts that are occurring and work with breaking down these and repairing 'faulty cognitions'.
An elevator phobia for example can be worked with by examining the thought processes and ultimately realising there is little to be worried about. We also look at breathing practices to literally taking greater control over our emotional state to put ourselves into a calmer state. A combined approach is what I find most effective.
