We all get anxious, but for some it’s too difficult to acknowledge, perhaps because they perceive it as weakness, or simply fear being swallowed up by it. The result is that it gets internalised and we end up carrying it around with us building up to the point where you have sudden unexplained outbursts, or conversely go into a state of withdrawal in which you feel cut off, isolated, and increasingly unsupported. Take a deep breath! You are not alone and with good therapy you will not only cope better during life’s ups and downs, but become stronger too.
How Can Gestalt Psychotherapy or CBT Help You?
In Gestalt and also CBT we talk about what maintains an issue? With anxiety it is often avoiding it because it is too uncomfortable. With an experienced therapist you have the opportunity to be in charge of your anxious thoughts, rather than their being in charge of you.
How Long Will I Need Therapy For?
We usually agree six sessions and review how things are going at that stage. How long therapy continues for is very much a matter for you.
Your mental health is of paramount importance at all times, which is why the sessions are geared completely around you. Our goal is solely about helping you.
Work Therapy Benefits
Because we become more available through therapy it has professional benefits too. This comes from our carrying less, so that we can perform more. The change I can assure you is exciting and fulfilling.
