Anxiety Counselling Melbourne

 Counselling Anxiety 1

Anxiety Counselling Melbourne addresses the core issues that underpin anxiety, rather than provide band aid solutions.

Counselling Melbourne deals with the underlying causes of anxiety. When certain events trigger us, underlying fears of abandonment, fears of failure, feelings of inadequacy and feelings of not being good enough can cause us to become anxious.

When we encounter underlying negative core beliefs it can distort the way we perceive ourselves and events that happen to us. The more we avoid these feelings, the more we do not face the anxiety provoking experience in order to extinguish anxiety.

When we encounter distress, it alerts us to unresolved areas that needs to be worked on within ourselves. At anxiety counselling in Melbourne, when pain is felt, we utilize defences to avoid the discomfort, so we do not feel what is really going on deep down. Sometimes these coping mechanisms take over the individual, worsening the anxiety experience.

Addictions, affairs and avoidance offer short term relief, rather than resolve anxiety. Anxiety Disorder treatment resolves the underlying feelings that create anxiety.

Melbourne Anxiety Counselling 2 

Life can be overwhelming living with these preoccupations, which can be self debilitating. Anxious states can be the manifestations of underlying feelings, causing depression. Anxiety symptoms can manifest when these underlying feelings or negative beliefs surface. So the individual avoids these feelings, by incorporating obsessive thoughts or behaviours to avoid anxiety evoking scenarios.

The anxiety will not disappear unless you resolve the real source of the anxiety, by working more deeply at uncovering underlying aspects that underpin the anxiety, in psychotherapy. Avoiding anxiety keeps it there and makes worse.

Many try to eliminate anxiety provoking situations to avoid being anxious, and the ways they attempt to get rid of anxiety can end up hiding the anxiety, rather than dealing with it.
