Do You Know That Anxiety & Depression Go Hand in Hand?

Did you also know that a psychotherapist is trained to assist with conditions of anxiety?

We all experience anxiety when life throws us specific challenges.

Mild anxiety can look like tension, feeling annoyed, tired, etc. More serious anxiety may include physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, sweating, trembling, difficulty catching your breath, chest pain or pressure, nausea or abdominal distress and accompanied by thoughts that you are having a heart attack.

If you experience these symptoms on a longer term basis they can cause you to want to avoid certain people, places and activities that you worry might provoke more anxiety or an anxiety attack ie engaging less in life.



PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

PTSD ( Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is a specific form of anxiety that can result from being in a situation that is/was traumatic or overwhelming in some way.


A Professional Counselor is Qualified to Help with Depression

Depression can feel like you have a cloud hanging over you, or that you don’t have much energy and your life seems to lack joy or meaning. Symptoms of depression include feeling sad or depressed a lot of the time; less interest or pleasure in what used to be enjoyable; changes in sleep or appetite; feeling hopeless and/or worthless; difficulty concentrating; excessive or inappropriate guilt; recurrent thoughts of death.
Unfortunately, depression is not something you can just “snap out of” no matter what you may tell yourself, or have heard from others.
Both anxiety and depression are very common moods and in many cases, the affected person has no idea they are suffering with such conditions and that they need or can get help from psychotherapy.




What types of therapy can help...?



EMDR-TherapyEMDR Stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

This form of psychotherapy is based on the idea that negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors are the result of unprocessed memories. If a situation is overwhelming, the brain’s processing ability can become “flooded” and we are unable to properly work through what has happened to us. Unpleasant memories become “stuck” in our minds and on a deeper cellular level as well, and can affect who we are and how we deal with life. EMDR helps the brain to process these “stuck” memories.
EMDR is a systemic approach that uses bilateral sensory stimulation of the brain via eye movement, tapping or sounds while the client focuses on different aspects of the upsetting experience. In addition to helping resolve the impacts of “trauma”, clients also develop internal resources that increase self confidence and make them better able to meet the challenges of life with awareness and flexibility.
EMDR has been proven effective for the treatment of PTSD, phobias, panic attacks, anxiety and stress, unresolved grief, low self-esteem/self-confidence, depression, and physical and emotional abuse.



CBT-TherapyCBT aka Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) is a psychotherapy approach based on a fundamental principle that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things like other people, situations or events.

A person who is depressed may have the belief “I am worthless”, and a person with panic disorder may have the belief “I am in danger”.

These beliefs are very real to these people.

A psychotherapist can teach clients to think differently, to see things from a different and more realistic perspective so they can act and react better to what happens in their life.



Client-Centered-TherapyClient-Centered or Person-Centered is Another Therapy

Client-centered or Person-centered therapy is a form of talk psychotherapy which provides clients with an opportunity to develop a sense of self.
A core tenet of Client-centered psychotherapy is that people are inclined to move toward growth and healing; thus the role of the client-centered therapist is to establish an atmosphere in which the client can discover the answers and solutions he or she has been seeking.
