Anxiety is a normal feeling we experience in response to threatening situations. Anxious feelings can also result in sweating, tension, panic and avoidant behaviour. If left untreated, anxiety can impact on relationships, at work, and even in general mood levels. Psychotherapy and counselling can help by exploring the causes of anxiety and the factors that maintain anxiety problems. Psychotherapy and counselling can also assist in relieving anxiety. Through therapy you can develop skills to manage anxiety and live a fuller life.
