Anxiety is the most common reason people seek counselling. Part of our human response is problem solving. We want to know what we need to do to stop the situation that’s making us anxious. But actually, our anxiety builds up even more.


Different people can react differently to different situations. One person can get anxious because they think someone is giving them a funny look. But another person wouldn’t be bothered by it.


Talking to a counsellor can help you understand what particular situations in your life are causing your anxiety, work out why and give you some help to manage your anxiety. This happens through exploring unhelpful thinking patterns. We help people to find out which techniques work for them.
