Anxiety, stress and panic can have a huge impact on our lives. Perhaps resulting in anger, frustration annoyance and many negative emotions. Some stress and anxiety isn't always a bad thing; its how we learn to protect ourselves. However without regulation we can feel overwhelmed and out of control and experience the physical manifestations of stress. Counselling can help understand what may be going on for us as individuals to help manage and balance how we deal with todays challenging world.
Coping with loss, separation or a feeling of isolation can be a very lonely place to be. Loss can take on many forms from bereavement, divorce, separation, changing environments and friendships. Even a feeling of being misunderstood can make us feel alone in a crowded room. Counselling can help you to process what your experiences means to you and how you can move forward from this feeling in a way that is right for you.
Being a child or young person can bring feelings of vulnerability and challenge in todays world of digital media, bullying, peer pressure and school/university life. Perhaps resulting in anxiety/stress, panic or anger. It's where we start to recognise our own identity. Counselling can really help a child or young person to understand themselves, communicate who they do or do not want to be and how to progress in a way that meets their needs. There is also the benefit that your counsellor has a specialist qualification in children and young people.
