Counselling Services in St. Catharines for Anxiety
You’re noticing that no matter what you do or how hard you try, you just can’t seem to relax anymore. A tightness in your chest and endless movements in your stomach have become the norm.
Your thoughts are racing and feel uncontrollable.
You’ve tried to help yourself, whether it’s a meditation app, fitness, or breathing exercises; but you’ve only found temporary relief.
The only thing that seems to help is avoidance.
Avoid hanging out with friends.
Avoid going to work functions, classes, or any large group.
Avoid leaving the house unless absolutely necessary.
You’re here because avoidance only brings temporary relief, then it starts to make you miss out on so much of what life has to offer.
I can help.
Niagara Anxiety Counselling Services
Anxiety serves a functional purpose for us. It’s often the reason why we are successful in what we do.
Could you imagine existing without anxiety? While that might sound perfect to you right now, we would not have made it very far out in the wilderness.
But, you’ve reached a point where your anxiety is in control of you, instead of the other way around.
Getting back in control looks like caring for yourself again and reengaging in things that used to bring you joy.
It means facing your fears and the situations that feel too uncomfortable to handle. It means being ok with not being the best, not being perfect, and with disappointing others.
Anxiety is a learned response and it can be unlearned. You’re likely stuck in a loop where the harder you work and the more you accomplish, the more your anxiety demands of you.
It takes intention, motivation, and action. A therapist can help you with this.
Together, we can start taking control of your anxiety. Therapy for anxiety can help you begin to relax and enjoy your life again, even when it gets stressful.
