PTSD & Anxiety Counselling & Therapy
There are various types of anxiety including
Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): a chronic disorder involving excessive, long-lasting anxiety and worries about nonspecific life events, objects, and situations. Often clients don’t know why they feel anxious.
Panic disorder: Brief or sudden attacks of intense terror and apprehension characterize a panic disorder.
Social Anxiety: This is a fear of negative judgment from others in social situations or of public embarrassment. It includes a range of feelings, such as stage fright, a fear of intimacy, and anxiety around humiliation and rejection. This disorder can cause people to avoid public situations and human contact to the point that everyday living is rendered extremely difficult.
How we can help?
Therapeutic Counselling will help you to get to the root of why you feel anxious, what really triggers your anxiety and helps you overcome it both physically and emotionally once and for good.
If appropriate you can also learn how to handle conflict constructively and calmly and feel ok and safe if someone is expressing it to you too. There are physical aspects to anxiety and emotional ones and both will be tackled so that you can quickly get back control and manage it whilst we get to the deeper issues behind your anxiety.
Using expertise, tools, experience and insight as professional qualified Counsellors drawn from over 10 years of success with clients we know the right questions to ask you, really listen and learn all about you and your life and then we use our particular special tools, approaches and techniques best tailored to your situation and personality to help you draw out the answers and understand what has happened to you and why you feel and behave the way you do now.

Case Study: Rachel (Name Changed)
Rachel a pragmatic, cheery, intelligent physical therapist came to see when she realised she could no longer cope with the physical and emotional impacts of anxiety that she had been suffering with in recent months. We identified that she had had been betrayed and let down by a close friend and this had in turn triggered the earlier trauma of loss, tragedy and emotional abandonment experienced earlier in her life.
With a combination of tools, techniques, talking, breathing exercises and practical immediate steps to take to counter and reset her brain’s early warning system for fight or flight mode she was able to not only get back in control and feel like herself again, she learned to constructively assert herself. Together we were able to eradicate her limiting beliefs, restored healthy sleep patterns, helped her heal her feelings of abandonment, express her anger, get her self-esteem back on track and restored her smile!
Afterwards Rachel shared she was much more relaxed, not worried about anything, confronted her friend who apologised and established new boundaries but saved their friendship. She also laid her traumatic past to rest and felt more at peace.
I arrived at Sarah’s door in a bit of a mess… huge anxiety, loss of self esteem and unfinished business with a lot of the loss in my life. Quickly, with a fantastic history taking session and adept questioning, she seemed to be aware of what the problem was. Sarah has a wonderfully incisive style and made progress with me very quickly. Her recommendations for exercises and improving my sleep worked very quickly and effectively and the homework she gave me moved me on so much faster than if we had been just talking every week. She is a hugely likeable person that has a genuine interest in facilitating improvement in her client’s lives. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone... she has worked wonders with me and imparted skills on me that are lifelong gems.
