Anxiety Therapy Calgary

Anxiety Therapy in Calgary

Anxiety is the mind and body’s reaction to a stressful, unfamiliar, or even dangerous situations. While anxiety is a common enough feeling, an anxiety disorder is an entirely different concept altogether. Furthermore, there are many different types and depending on this, including; Social Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias or Generalized Anxiety. The treatment can differ from person to person.

Life with the occasional bout of anxiety is bearable, but living life in a constant state of worry, stress, and fear can be downright debilitating. For that reason, it is important to find the best anxiety therapy near me for treatment. Whether you are looking for anxiety therapy treatment or need assistance addressing your anxiety, I am more than happy to help through my work at Virtuous Circle Counselling. Let’s outline how my research-based approach to anxiety therapy can lead to results for you! 

​Counselling can be an effective non-medication option for the treatment but requires practice, repetition and more practice. Some individuals might require medication support and that’s okay as well. Some people experience symptoms in situations that others may not experience at all. That’s okay. We are all unique, with different experiences and backgrounds. What is important is that you approach counselling for the treatment of your symptoms with an open mind. Similarly, one therapeutic approach may work for you but may not work for your neighbour.

What I can tell you is that avoidance to unwanted and stressful situations will only manifest itself into more problematic symptoms. This can cause many people to lose the quality of life that they once enjoyed.  By facing your fears in counselling to address the unwanted symptoms, you can learn that you can not only tolerate a brief moment of a stress reaction but you can possibly even eliminate these reactions altogether. Recovery and healing are more than possible. 

Anxiety is one of the most common afflictions in the world today and how could it not be? Anxiety can manifest in times of uncertainty, as a result of trauma, or even from feelings that are unfamiliar to ourselves.  When individuals look for anxiety therapy, they often do so because their disorder has become intolerable. When a generalized anxiety disorder is left untreated, it can even lead to panic attacks. Anxiety therapy Calgary is a great way to address your symptoms while diffusing one of the most uncomfortable aspects of the disorder, a panic attack. Panic attacks are intense feelings of fear or anxiety that manifest with physical symptoms. Panic attacks can be terrifying to go through when you do not understand them or have the tools to address them.
