Online Counselling and Therapy for Anxiety

Onlinetherapy 2x1

During times of difficulty our anxiety levels might increase. In terms of the coronavirus the reason why your anxiety levels might increases is because your mind and body have gone into a state of high alert to keep yourself safe. Having some anxiety at the moment is normal! The underlying emotion of anxiety is fear. Being fearful at the moment is not pleasant but it is helpful to keep you safe as well as others. If you are self isolating on your own you might find you have difficulties with loneliness. If you are isolating with others it can put these relationships under added stress. 

If you normally suffer from anxiety or have a condition like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) of General Anxiety Disorder (GAD) you might find that your anxiety has ramped up to a high level. At this stage it can be helpful having some online anxiety therapy especially if you have been advised not to leave your home. You may not feel able to leave your home. You can access our online therapy from anywhere in the world with a Skype link or Facetime.
