From Struggle to Strength: Overcoming Anxiety’s Debilitating Effects with Counselling in Melbourne

It can feel like an invisible force that grips your life, robbing you of joy and freedom. I’ve been there, and I understand the impact it can have on your well-being and relationships. From the intense panic attacks that leave you breathless to the constant worry that follows you everywhere, anxiety can prevent you from truly being yourself. But there is hope.

Anxiety is a natural part of life that we’ve all experienced in small doses. It serves a purpose as our body’s way of trying to protect us from danger. However, when anxiety becomes irrational and prolonged, it can be debilitating.

Thinking your way out of anxiety doesn’t always work.

Yet, time and again I’ve seen counsellors, psychologists try to use logic, and outdated methods in working with anxiety. Such as “it’s an irrational belief” or “just try and think about something else.” That doesn’t work!

And then there’s the mindfulness route, but not without it’s problems. It’s a great approach to distract you from feeling the anxiety. However, it doesn’t get to the core of it.

How about breathing? Yes, it’s true, slow diaphragmatic breathing does activate the parasympathetic nervous system.

And it does work…

But..it will come back!

Because the underlying anxiety hasn’t been dealt with. Just the symptoms.

I specialise in somatic psychotherapy (FOT), which offers a complete different and unique paradigm in working with anxiety.

I’ve worked with thousands of people around the world in working with their anxiety. If you’re looking for an anxiety specialist in Melbourne, or abroad (virtual sessions), try a 20 minute free session with me. I think you’ll be surprised at just how quick, things can turn around. Even in 20 minutes.

Here’s a list of Some Anxiety Symptoms You May Be Experiencing

Let’s be real for a moment. Anxiety is something we’ve all experienced at some point in our lives. It’s a natural response to protect us from danger. But when anxiety becomes overwhelming, irrational, and prolonged, it can be paralyzing. You’re not alone in this struggle. Many people face the same challenges, and it’s essential to know that seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness.

Here are some of the most common symptoms:

  • Mind racing
  • Heart racing
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Muscle tension
  • Excessive perspiration
  • Shakiness
  • Nausea / vomiting
  • Dry mouth
  • Trembling
  • Avoidance of situations
  • Lack of concentrating
  • Feel like you’re dying

How Long Is Anxiety Counselling? How Many Sessions Will It Take For My Anxiety Treatment To Work?

You will find significant results in just the free 20 minute session.

And that may be all you need!

If you’re wanting therapy for one issue, then we can work through that pretty quickly. Anywhere from one session, to three, or sometimes six as a rough guide. This will give you a fantastic foundation to be able to work with your anxiety.

Some clients want to go deeper, to really hone in on the skills of managing their anxiety on a day to day basis. To have mastery over their anxiety. This approach can take several months.

In both cases however…

I will never try and make you stay longer than you need to.

Why? Because I don’t want you to depend on me!

My goal is to arm you with the tools, so that you can use this approach on your own, and even to share and teach it to others.

What Will I Get Out Of Anxiety Counselling ?

You may have tried various therapies in the past without finding the results you desired. I hear you, and I understand your skepticism. Somatic psychotherapy is different. It’s an evidence-based approach that integrates mind and body, offering a fresh perspective on healing. It complements traditional talk therapy by targeting the root causes of anxiety and facilitating deep transformation. Don’t let past experiences hold you back from discovering the power of somatic psychotherapy.

What Makes Ronnie's Approach Different To Others?

What sets me apart is my extensive training in both Eastern and Western philosophies. I’ve lived and learnt philopsophy and esoteric psychological teachings in India, Israel and Australia. I have dedicated my life to helping others and gaining insight from various therapeutic modalities. By blending the best of ancient wisdom and modern techniques, I offer a truly holistic and integrative approach to anxiety treatment. When you choose to work with me, you benefit from my unwavering commitment to your well-being and my continuous pursuit of excellence.

In Person & Online Anxiety Counselling is needed more than ever!

As you may note from the list above, anxiety is not just a psychological condition — it’s also physiological one. 

Anxiety is the body responding to a perceived threat.

It does this by flooding itself with stress hormones. These hormones prepare the body for fight-or-flight responses — our awareness increases, our heart pumps blood to power our muscles, and we get ready for action.

The problem is, your body will do this in response to the threat of a shark in the water near you … or a looming deadline at work. Or perhaps to troubles in our relationships. Or even just reading too much about global troubles on the news.

Anxiety can affect  work, relationships, self esteem, and can ultimately lead to other mental health conditions, such as depression. Anxiety can make it difficult for people to leave the house, or deviate from their normal schedules. Trying to juggle a trip to a counsellor on top of our daily routines can even add to people’s anxiety — an irony that is not lost on me.

That’s why I offer flexible hours, on flexible days, and where necessary, online.

That means you can schedule an appointment after work hours, if you needed.  Perhaps Sunday afternoon is the perfect time for you? Reach out, and I will try to arrange a time that suits your needs.

Online sessions make it possible to see an anxiety specialist from the comfort of your own home. Don’t let travel, schedules, driving and parking add to your anxiety! Stay at home in your favourite spot, open up a computer tab, and we can work together towards your brighter future.

    What Happens To My Nervous System When I’m Anxious?

    We’ve all heard the “fight, flight or freeze” response. But how does this relate to anxiety?

    Well, in truth, anxiety is a protective mechanism.

    This response becomes activated to protect us.

    BUT…the body and mind connection, well…it’s not so smart.

    Let me explain…

    When we perceive danger, our nervous system sends signals to our heart to beat faster, tenses our muscles, with shallow breathing…

    Okay, that’s fine. But the problem is little brain of ours between our ears. We interpret these bodily sensations, as fear, and it spins our mind out of control.

    The story follows the state of the nervous system.

    MEANING…the story we tell ourselves, follows the state of our nervous system.

    Did you know that anxiety affects up to 25% of Australians?
