Feel safer and more secure in yourself
Anxiety is often related to worries about the future or related to unresolved emotional experiences, such as trauma or negative early life experiences. Anxiety can be exacerbated by negative self-talk and self-criticism. Psychotherapy supports you to become more aware of how anxiety manifests itself in you, raise your awareness of self-talk and modify negative thoughts. By learning to identify and replace negative self-talk with more positive and empowering thoughts, you can begin to feel safer and more confident in yourself.
As a therapist, I work to build a supportive learning environment with my clients, which can help you to identify root causes of your anxiety and support you to feel more secure in yourself and better able to express your fears and concerns, thus alleviating the anxiety which you feel at the moment.
In treatment, you can learn to identify habitual coping skills which no longer serve you well and develop new ones that are effective in managing anxiety. By fostering self-awareness, building a supportive therapeutic relationship, and developing coping skills, you can learn to manage your anxiety and feel safer and more secure in yourself.
