Anxiety is a complex condition that can present itself in a variety of ways, causing significant disruption to the lives of individuals. It can emerge as a symptom after experiencing trauma, or may be present as a generalised condition. If left untreated, anxiety and panic attacks can severely impact all aspects of life, leaving those suffering struggling to cope. As anxiety differs from person to person, we use a combined approach to our anxiety therapy, addressing the root cause(s) as well as helping to reframe any anxious thoughts.
Symptoms of Anxiety
Those struggling with anxiety can experience a range of both mental and physical symptoms, often manifesting itself in the form of panic attacks. Symptoms can also include restlessness, an increased heart rate, stomach churning, dizziness, insomnia, and headaches, amongst others. Other related conditions such as trauma, PTSD, panic disorder and stress can also present different symptoms, in addition to anxiety and panic attacks.
Therapy and Counselling for Anxiety
Here at Aguilera Psychology, we take a personalised approach to anxiety therapy, which can include a range of different therapies. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which helps individuals to develop coping strategies that can provide symptom relief, and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), aimed at those particularly struggling with negative thoughts and self-doubt. In the case of trauma-induced anxiety, we also offer Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) trauma therapy, designed to help sufferers to move past their trauma and related anxiety.
