Anxiety Counselling Online

Anxiety counselling online can help you to address your anxiety issues from the comfort of your own home. Anxiety disorder symptoms can make it difficult to leave the house making access to therapy difficult. We offer anxiety counselling on Zoom or Skype.

We can help you to understand the root cause of your anxiety difficulties and process them to help with current symptoms. We use an integrative approach to help manage anxiety symptoms as well as get to the bottom of why you might feel anxious.

We all have anxious feelings from time to time caused by difficulties experienced in daily life. However, feeling anxious, fearful, tense and worried all the time when there is no obvious present trigger could mean that you are suffering from an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety Disorder Causes

Anxiety can be caused by a number of different experiences which might include: an overwhelming or traumatic event, bullying, a history of addiction, long term health difficulty or difficulties experienced in childhood. There are also a number of conditions which contribute to anxiety symptoms. These include General Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Anxiety Disorder Symptoms

Anxiety disorder symptoms can be physical and psychological. Physical symptoms can include feeling easily startled, fatigue, irritability, headaches, difficulty sleeping or a sense of dread. Psychological symptoms might include negative thinking, intrusive thoughts, worrying or obsessive thinking.

For a more information on anxiety symptoms and causes please see our Anxiety Symptoms and Causes Post.

Our Anxiety Therapy Approaches

We use an integrative approach to help you with anxiety.

Psychotherapy can help to understand how the past is affecting the present. It helps you make long lasting changes by developing the qualities needed to overcome anxiety. Behavioural therapy enables you to challenge unhelpful thinking which keeps the anxiety feelings running longer. We also use somatic psychotherapy to tackle anxiety with a bottom up approach to assist with somatic anxiety symptoms. EMDR therapy can help you to reprocess the root causes of anxiety as well as present anxiety triggers.

Matthew Alderton - MA, BSc, Dip, Dip Psych. I trained at The Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education in London. I am also an EMDR practitioner.

EMDR is the leading evidence based treatment for PTSD. Anxiety is closely related to trauma symtoms making EMDR an important tool to help with anxiety. I also use psychotherapy and body psychotherapy to help with anxiety and anxiety related difficulties.

I am approachable and down to earth helping you to feel safe and relaxed in talking through your anxiety related symptoms.

Anxiety Counselling Online Approaches


Psychotherapy helps you to gain insight and understanding into your anxiety difficulty and process it in a safe space. Psychotherapy will empower you to take the relevant steps to help yourself and feel like the real you.

Behavioural Therapy

Behavioural therapy can help you to address the way your thinking is affecting your anxiety levels. When we get our thinking function working for us as opposed to against us anxiety becomes more manageable.


Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing therapy can help you to get to the root cause of an anxiety difficulty. It can help you to reprocess these difficulties making current symtoms more manageable as well as helping to reduce them.

Body Psychotherapy

Anxiety is as much somatic as it is mental. Addressing anxiety with a body based approach (Body Psychotherapy) is important to help with symptoms and transform anxiety. We might use techniques like trauma release, polyvagal theory, mindfulness, EFT and breathwork.

Anxiety Therapy Benefits


If you are suffering from anxiety symptoms you are probably not spending much time in the present moment. A somatic approach can help restore balance and get you to live back in the present.


When we are worrying less we are able to connect with ourselves. When we connect with ourselves we worry less.

Symptom cessation

Anxiety therapy can help you to manage anxiety symptoms as well as reduce them. Feeling stressed or anxious is addictive but so is feeling, relaxed, happy and calm.


As you move ack into the present you will be able to get on with your life and bring happiness back into it.
