Anxiety & Panic Attacks

Anxiety is often triggered by one or several life changing events and / or ongoing stress

Anyone suffering with anxiety will know that this is a debilitating condition that greatly diminishes the quality of life for those affected. Symptoms include trembling, sweating, shaking, hot and cold flushes, dizziness, palpitations, stammering, sleeplessness, terror and fear of the worst and panic attacks.

It is common to question whether something is seriously wrong and some people develop additional anxiety about their health and general wellbeing. It can mean that there is a circle of fear and anxiety about the symptoms of anxiety as well as the original worries, fears and concerns (the “anxiety trap”).

Anxiety can be managed, reduced and eliminated with professional help and some lifestyle changes. Often 6-8 sessions are sufficient.

Anxiety in Teens and young adults is common at times of change (leaving school, going to college or university, settling in to study or work, changing friendship groups, confusion about sexuality, feeling overwhelmed and finding it difficult to sleep or cope). I am used to working with teenagers (16 plus) who experience these issues and proving a safe and supportive space outside of the home.
