Are you, or someone that is close to your, suffering with stress? Is the mood more agitated or anxious? If you have had long term stress or tension, this can lead to anxiety.
If anxiety is acted on early enough there is a good chance that it can be addressed through counselling. In some cases medication can be of assistance, but this is not always necessary long term. Feeling good again means less time lost at work or school and more time for healthy relationships and activities that make us feel good.
Anxiety can affect the mood, thoughts and the body. It can interfere with your ability to enjoy life, work and family time. Anxiety can affect the life of the person with anxiety and those around them. It often works in cycles. You can feel anxious and worry about things that simply would not concern others. This can lead to a feeling of agitation, and a feeling of helplessness that can it turn lead to depression.
Anxiety can affect men and women and is affecting children in greater numbers. Anxiety counselling, mindfulness and other psychology techniques can help you get your life back on track again.
Adelaide Counselling practice specialise in anxiety and depression counselling for men, women and children. It is important to deal with the emotional aspects of anxiety and depression even if you are taking medication.
