Anxiety is a common mental health condition that can significantly impact a person and daily life. For some individuals, just the thought of getting through the day produces intense levels of anxiety. No matter what they do, they cannot seem to stop the worry and often feel it is out of their control. They might anticipate disaster or be overly concerned about money, health, family, work, or other issues.

What services we provide

There are two main treatments for anxiety; Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is often recommended as a first-line treatment for anxiety because the treatment targets and focuses on the power of our brain, which directly influences our emotions. CBT helps individuals identify and modify negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to anxiety. EFT assists the client in recognizing the challenges and negative patterns of coping with chronic anxiety has driven their interactions with others, causing emotional disconnection or distress in their most important relationships.

In some cases, healthcare providers may prescribe medications such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), benzodiazepines, or beta-blockers to help manage anxiety symptoms. Medication should be prescribed and monitored by a qualified healthcare professional.
