What is Anxiety?

Most of us will have experienced a difficult or stressful situation which has provoked feelings of panic, anxiety, and fear in us. These feelings are completely natural in that they help us prepare to respond to danger, and they tend to be infrequent.

However, if you struggle with anxiety these feelings may occur regularly and can happen without warning, causing distress and leaving you feeling powerless and out of control.

Anxiety can affect us physically and emotionally, can change our behaviour and can cause difficulties in our relationships, at work, and in our mood.

If this sounds like your experience, then please know that you are not alone; anxiety is one of the most common reasons that people seek therapy, and therapy can help.

Can The Retreat help with anxiety?

Our therapists can help you to explore the possible causes and triggers of your anxiety, in a safe way, and will work with you to develop effective coping strategies. Therapy can help you think and feel differently and bring about positive change, giving you techniques and tools that will help you manage stressful situations in the future.

Our evidence-based therapies are tailored to your needs, whether that be a specific approach such as cognitive behavioural therapy, or an unstructured space to begin to explore what your anxiety is about.

If you would like to arrange an assessment appointment to see whether therapy can help you, please give us a call on 01904 412551.
