Therapy for Anxiety

Having Anxiety can often feel overwhelming, exhausting, and daunting at the same time. Your journey through anxiety can feel easier with a little bit of help.

We are here for you.




What Is Anxiety?

Anxiety occurs when you are concerned, apprehensive, or afraid about something that is happening, or may happen.

It is common to worry about things like exams, meeting friends, or attempting new activities. But, anxiety can become a problem if it gets out of control and starts to interfere with your daily activities.

If you are experiencing anxiety, it is critical to understand that you are not alone and that there are things you can do to feel better. Anxiety is definitely manageable with the right kind of support and professional help.

What Causes Anxiety?

Anxiety is a complex condition that has a myriad of reasons behind it. There can often be a single defining reason behind anxiety, like death or social anxiety, or anxiety about exams. Therapy for anxiety involves the counselor understanding the root causes of your anxiety and working their way up towards working on your unhealthy thoughts, patterns, and behaviours. 

Here are some of the common causes behind anxiety:

Therapy for anxiety from bad childhood

Environmental Issues

Being in, or growing up in environments where there are multiple stressors or an unstable environment, poverty, or financial issues, can also put you at a risk of developing anxiety. 

Therapy for anxiety from genetic issues

Genetic Issues

Anxiety can be inherited from your family. Having close relatives with,  or a family history of anxiety or anxiety disorders could indicate a higher chance of you having anxiety.

Personality Traits

Personality traits, or our nature, can also contribute towards anxiety. If you are usually a nervous person, or if you are prone to worry, or if you tend to be perfectionistic, you may develop anxiety.

Physiological Factors & Medical Conditions

This entails neurotransmitters, or chemicals in the brain and their function. When there are certain imbalances in your neurotransmitters, such as Serotonin or GABA, you may develop anxiety. Also, certain disorders such as thyroid disorder, heart-related disorders, can cause anxiety.

Stressful Life Events

Significant shifts or changes in life can bring about stress. For instance, marriage, divorce, losing a loved one, having a financial crisis, giving an important exam- these events can cause immense stress and anxiety. 

Symptoms Of Anxiety

The symptoms of anxiety can show up in the form of physical, mental, and emotional symptoms. 

Your experience with anxiety can look completely different from another individual’s anxiety. Therefore, seeking help through a counselor can help you identify your symptoms and start your journey towards overcoming your anxiety.

Sometimes, anxiety can co-occur with depression. In such instances, you may experience a mix of the symptoms from both the disorders. If you would like to know more about Therapy for depression, click here.

Benefits of therapy for anxiety

Benefits Of Opting For Therapy For Anxiety

Managing anxiety and its symptoms by yourself can get difficult. Therapy helps you tackle anxiety in countless ways, primarily by managing your symptoms, then getting to the root of your problems, and improving your quality of life. Some other noticeable ways therapy can help you are:

  • Providing you with a safe space to talk about your issues.
  • Gaining knowledge about your problems and addressing the underlying issues.
  • Offering you newer perspectives to your problems, and helping you identify negative patterns, thoughts, and beliefs that contribute to these problems.
  • Receiving non-judgemental support and help from a qualified professional

    Some people may have pervasive feelings of anxiety. Therefore, therapy can help you be prepared for such instances, by reducing the intensity and impact of anxiety in your daily life.

    FAQs on Counseling and Therapy For Anxiety

    The use of medication to treat anxiety varies according to person’s situation and the severity of their symptoms. Some people find that therapy alone helps manage their anxiety, while others may need to take medication along with therapy. Medication can help balance chemicals that affect mood, but it can take a few weeks to start working. It is best to work closely with a mental health professional to determine the best treatment plan for their needs and monitor any medication use carefully. 

    Worrying is a natural response to situations beyond control. It can be difficult to separate the two because of how similar it feels. 

    Anxiety can feel uncomfortable and can lead to excessive worrying, along with other physical and emotional symptoms. It is a treatable disorder. If you feel like you are struggling with these symptoms, seeking professional help is one of the best steps you can take towards getting better. 

    All our therapists are qualified psychologists with a post graduate degree in clinical or counseling psychology. We do not hire people with diplomas or short-term training courses. They are all personally interviewed and hired by our founder Sadia Saeed who is a trained clinical psychologist and has been practicing for over 23 years. She not only ensures their qualification but also verifies their therapeutic approach. We believe it is very important that our therapists come from a supportive and exploratory therapeutic approach rather than an advisory one.

    The treatment for anxiety involves therapy, lifestyle changes, and medication for some individuals. Treatment plans are formulated by therapists according to each individual’s needs and intensity of the symptoms. Depending on these factors, therapists can guide you on whether you will have to use medications, and the mode of therapy to be used.
