Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! Research shows that evidence-based therapy is a very effective way to treat anxiety and help people reduce worrying, panic, and overwhelm. The first-line treatment for anxiety is psychotherapy before medication.

Many people experience significant improvement and anxiety reduction within 8-10 anxiety counselling sessions, and noticeable improvement after 4-5 sessions.. However, the results you get are largely dependent on doing therapy homework in between sessions.

Some people with anxiety benefit from medication in addition to therapy. We do not prescribe medication, but we support many people who take medication to relieve their anxiety. We always recommend people talk to their doctor about their anxiety symptoms.

Our counsellors are trained and experienced in a number of therapeutic modalities that have been well proven to reduce anxiety symptoms such as irrational thoughts, tension and agitation in the body, and intense preoccupation with perceived negative events. We use methods such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, and Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP).

That’s a complex question that we are likely to unpack in counselling! Anxiety can be the result of a highly sensitive nervous system, trauma, or upbringing. We find that there is usually a combination of factors that contribute to your anxiety, and a big part of therapy is helping understand your anxious parts better so that you aren’t bullied around by them.
