Anxiety Counselling in Melbourne or Teletherapy helps
Anxiety – it’s a natural part of life, and something we’ve all experienced. However, when anxiety takes over, the effects can be debilitating. Ultimately, our goal is to help make you feel more at ease as challenges arise.
What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is a fear of something you don’t want to happen! While it’s normal to feel anxious on a first date for example, it becomes problematic when it starts affecting day to day living.
The origins of anxiety can be seen in most animals when under threat. This is known as the fight/flight/freeze response. This response becomes activated to protect us. However we tend to translate painful emotions into these responses, distorting what is real danger.
The Anxiety Counselling Melbourne Clinic uses evidence-based therapy to help clients let go of negative beliefs. Ultimately, this results in helping clients regain a sense of self.

What’s the difference between primary and secondary anxiety?

Different forms of Anxiety
Anxiety can present itself in a number of ways. First, there’s social anxiety. Further, anxiety can also manifest over financial issues, deadlines at work, or deciding whether to stay or go in a relationship. However if the situation worsens this can also lead to other disorders such as:
- General Anxiety Disorder
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Eating disorders
- Dissociative disorders
- Sleep disorders
How do you reduce anxiety?
A number of interventions can help reduce anxiety. Diaphragmatic breathing is a quick fix. However, as you’ve probably discovered, it doesn’t always work. In truth, speaking to a trained therapist is perhaps the best way to manage it.
The Anxiety Counselling Melbourne Clinic uses a holistic integrative approach. In fact, we use a combination of what is called both top-down strategies, and bottom-up interventions.
Top-down approaches, involves identifying unhelpful automatic thinking. Talk therapy, CBT, mindfulness, and psychoeducation, for example, can help with this
A bottom-up approach, uses the wisdom of the body. Ultimately, blocked emotions are released.
