Feeling anxious is completely normal, the challenge is when you feel the emotion is taking over your life.
There are a number of treatments available to help you better manage your anxiety.
Counselling and psychotherapy (also known as “Talking therapy”)
Sometimes it’s easier to talk to a stranger than to relatives or friends. Someone who is trained specifically to provide non judgemental support.
During talking therapy, a trained counsellor or therapist listens to you and supports you to find your own answers to problems and challenges.
The space they give you is yours. You can talk, cry, shout or just think in a controlled environment, which gives you an opportunity to look at your problems in a different way with someone who’ll respect you and your opinions.
Sessions are usually one-to-one but can sometimes be held in groups, such as with relationship counselling. They’ll usually be done face-to-face, telephone or over video all of which is included as part of Paranimo.
Although there are lots of different types of talking therapy, they all have a similar aim: to help you feel better.
