Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. Sweating, increased heart rate, insomnia are responses to a stressful or scary situation when we feel under pressure—this is a normal response. When anxious feelings don't go away causing continued Insomnia, lack of appetite, muscle pain, panic attacks  or chest pain, struggling to focus, this is not a normal response.


Symptoms can continue and happen without any reason or make daily life difficult to cope with. If your anxiety continues to persist, or you are feeling overwhelmed, then Counselling or EMDR may offer you an opportunity to explore and discuss what is going on for you or work through emotions attached to difficult memories.


While we don’t know exactly what causes depression, a number of things are often linked to its development. It can result from a combination of negative recent events and other longer-term or personal factors such as Personality, Family history, Health issues, Drugs & Alcohol, rather than one immediate issue or event. 


Talking therapy and EMDR are beneficial in making changes to both anxiety and depression and moving forward with your life rather than feeling stuck.
