Therapy For Anxiety and Depression
Symptoms and Causes of Anxiety
Both anxiety and depression can be crippling. They can also raise it’s head in many forms in relation to multiple different triggers. Anxiety can give us a range of different physical symptoms such as sweating, heart palpitations, racing thoughts and irritability to mention just a few. Anxiety can be caused by different factors which includes someones genetics, their life experiences, illicit drugs or the circumstances that someone has found themselves in. At times we all feel anxiety as a normal feeling whether we have a big day coming up like exams or an important life event. But anxiety in the form of generalised anxiety disorder is different. It is different in that it is enduring and often seeps into many different aspects of life. Some other aspects of anxiety can be linked with things like phobias or other anxiety based disorders like OCD or agoraphobia.
Counselling for Anxiety
Like depression the most common ways of working with these problems, as proven by research and recommended by the NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines, are to create an individualised approach and person-centred counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or solution focused therapy.
