Anxiety Counselling in Melbourne

Most things we worry about never even happens. Anxiety has the tendency to be all consuming.  But it doesn’t have to be. 

Anxiety Counselling Melbourne

Anxiety Counselling in Melbourne 

Anxiety – it’s a natural part of life, and something we’ve all experienced. Some of the techniques I use, such as somatic focusing and other experiential therapies can really help dramatically shift this uncomfortable emotion.

Fight, Flight or Freeze

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.

  • Heart racing
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Muscle tension

  • Feel like you’re dying

Primary Anxiety and secondary anxiety?

Sometimes, we can also get what’s called secondary anxiety. Consequently, we feel anxious about our anxiety. Whether you come for anxiety counselling in Melbourne or via teletherapy via Skype, a focus on uncovering the layers helps identify identify both.

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
