About Our Anxiety Counselling Services
An anxiety therapist helps anyone understand the impacts of anxiety and manage or mitigate symptoms. According to a recent poll by the National Post, 41% of Canadians surveyed noted they are struggling with a form of anxiety. Anxiety can take many forms and impact us at home, work and beyond. It’s imperative to get support sooner rather than later to help manage symptoms before they take over. Book an appointment at Bronte Wellness Boutique in Oakville to talk to an anxiety therapist.
How an Anxiety Therapist Can Help
Everyone experiences stress; however, when those days turn into weeks and months, we start to experience more severe anxiety symptoms. We may feel like it’s “just a phase,” but anxiety becomes an issue when it doesn’t go away. Our friends and family may not fully understand the impact anxiety can have on our lives – it impacts our relationships, self-esteem, physical health, work and many aspects of our life. One of the best ways to mitigate the impacts of anxiety on our life is through anxiety counseling.
An anxiety therapist uses therapeutic approaches to help you understand the causes and impacts of anxiety. They may use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for anxiety, which can help you better manage your mood by tackling the thoughts that influence our behaviours and feelings. Anxiety often leads us to worst-case-scenario thinking, and CBT for anxiety teaches us how situations impact our thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and how to challenge maladaptive thoughts. Anxiety often hijacks our attention, so other approaches (such as mindfulness) can help us stay more present by bringing awareness to our thoughts that impact our mood. We often get stuck too far in the future, and mindfulness helps us bring back focus to the present where we can learn to disengage anxious thoughts.
