anxiety counsellingAnxiety Counselling in Toronto

Our anxiety counselling service in Toronto aims to achieve a better understanding excessive worries you may have. Reducing the amount one worries, identifying and reducing fears and stresses, and regaining the feeling of control of one’s life are essential components of anxiety counselling. It is important to learn to trust yourself and identity values. In addition, we will work to understand triggers (people, places, and/or situations) for feelings of anxiousness in order to better predict when one might feel anxious. Anxiety counselling also involves developing strategies (such as mindfulness and relaxation) to manage and reduce physical symptoms of anxiety.

Your first session involves initial assessment of your well being and a thorough intake of your personal history and background. Subsequent therapy sessions are 50 minutes in length, and are unique to each individual treatment plan. 

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a feeling of excessive worry, fear, and/or panic that is an overly distressing, unpredictable, and uncontrollable threat to one’s well being. Anxiety can be present in a variety of forms and diagnoses, some of the most common being: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, social anxiety, social phobias, and specific phobias.

Anxiety typically involves:

      physical arousal that can be associated with feelings of panic and fear

      interfere with your work, school, or family responsibilities

–     believe that something bad will happen if certain things are not done a certain way

–     avoid everyday situations or activities because they cause you anxiety

–     experience sudden, unexpected attacks of heart-pounding panic
