When should you seek anxiety counselling?

Anxiety

Anxiety and worries can be adaptive when they assist in identifying of real threats. Anxiety can help you stay motivated and attentive. But when anxiety is a way of life, or it’s taking over your life, it’s time to take action and seek the support of anxiety counselling to help you.

It’s common to feel nervous or tense when they face a stressful situation like a job interview or an exam. But when anxiety and worries occur so frequently that you develop ineffective coping responses to fear and it prevents you from engaging in everyday activities, you may wish to explore the causes of your feelings.

Anxiety is a real disorder, and the symptoms can be debilitating.

Finding Solutions For Anxiety

You don’t have to live with anxiety. Being consumed with anxiety is not a pleasant experience. Many times the fears, worries and social nervousness begins long before a situation occurs and its unpleasant effects don’t go away until long after the event has happened. Call us at Family-Therapy, located in Ottawa, today and learn how we can help guide you to a more peaceful state of mind. 

Parenting An Anxious Child

As a parent of an anxious child or teen you can help your child learn techniques to help manage anxiety.  Every bit of support can be helpful. Even after you do seek professional help for your child’s anxiety, parents still play a key role in helping your child manage their stress and practice techniques at home and in public. Look at ways you can rid your home of excessive stress and tension. It is important that you and your partner work together to help your child manage anxiety.  While you may not agree on everything, agreeing on a few social anxiety reducing methods can be helpful to reducing your child’s anxiety.
