Counselling for Anxiety

Whether it is social phobia, specific phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, general anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, or similar, it falls under the category of anxiety disorder, and counselling can help. Ultimately we are talking about helping you to feel as if you are in control again; this is where my approach is so useful. It is a systematic approach in which we seek to understand what the drivers are, and decide on how you would like to react. We get to know the problem and be able to confront the 'bully within' without fear or phobia. It has been medically proven that when the people confront what they fear repeatedly without getting the negative outcome they actually feared, the sense of phobia would gradually subside. This does not only help in changing the mental frame of a person in a natural manner, but also helps in building back the lost confidence and sensitivity towards self.
