Counseling for Anxiety

Anxiety is a debilitating condition that makes us feel worried and agitated a lot of the time. We may also begin to feel really upset that we are not able to control our emotions in certain situations and scared that it might take over our lives.

There are many different types of anxieties. Some common ones include social anxiety, generalized anxiety, panic, post traumatic stress disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder.

When experiencing anxiety, we can often look at it from two distinct viewpoints- physical and cognitive symptoms.


Often, physical symptoms include:

  • Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense

  • Feelings of danger, panic, or dread

  • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation

  • Increased or heavy sweating

  • Trembling or muscle twitching

  • Weakness or lethargy

  • Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about

  • Insomnia

  • Obsessions about certain ideas; a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder

  • Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past; a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder

When working from a trauma-informed approach, we usually ask the question of “what happened to you?” in order to learn the cause of the anxiety. This reduces the need to continually “fix” ourselves and blame ourselves for feeling a certain way.
