Psychology Sessions in Chiswick, West London
Sessions will involve talking openly about presenting issues and may include completing questionnaires or assessments, which are evidence based, to establish patterns in the way a person feels, thinks and behaves.
Psychologists can help with many concerns, the focus being on finding ways to help improve the quality of life by the application of scientific research into the problems being experienced. And a wide range of problems experienced by people of all backgrounds and ages are brought to psychologists.
Problems can be understood in terms of recognised mental or emotional health concerns for example depression or more thought process or “cognitive” difficulties associated with concerns like dementia, autism, learning difficulties or even the impact of head injuries or trauma.
Anxiety and Stress Psychology
Whilst all of us can have anxious thoughts and feelings from time to time it can be very distressing if these continue over a significant period of time or prevent you enjoying life. It is thought that either intense and/or prolonged periods of stress can lead to anxiety. We have extensive experience of working with people who have suffered from stress and anxiety. We also have experience of working with people who have suffered panic attacks which are a distinct phenomena related to stress and anxiety. See more information regarding our Panic Attack Therapy.
Recognise Anxiety and Stress
Symptoms can include low mood, problems sleeping, feeling uncertain about making decisions, low confidence, feeling frustrated and angry, not wanting to socialise or go to work, sometimes people also experience panic attacks and a heightened sense of awareness with faster heartbeats and rapid breathing.
Experience of heightened senses is a natural and healthy response to a potential threat and one or a combination of reactions include paralysis, anger or wanting to get away.
Bodily responses can include increased heartbeat, rapid breathing, feeling very frightened, out of control and panic. Whilst panic is a natural phenomena its presence can be very confusing when there is not an apparently dangerous situation to hand. Sometimes people recall a traumatic event that might have triggered the attacks, for many there is no immediately apparent cause.
CBT to Overcome Anxiety and Stress
We will explore the situations that you are finding stressful and seek to find new perspectives using various interventions including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). The nature of anxiety being the result of an accumulation of stress is such that Counselling and Psychotherapy can offer a useful space to explore what is happening and consider options for managing and dealing with the symptoms.
