What is Anxiety?


If you are struggling with overwhelming and persistent feelings of unease, worry, panic or irrational fear, you may be suffering from anxiety. Anxiety is a common mental health disorder which can at times be perfectly natural and, when not disordered, a useful human emotion to warn us when danger is imminent. However, sometimes this emotion can become dysregulated and prolonged. In such cases, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder.

Around 6% of people in the UK suffer with anxiety issues which can have begun with a natural response to difficult or stressful life events such as divorce, work, financial troubles, starting a family, moving house, exams and many other normal life concerns. However, for those that have acute anxiety disorders, the natural feelings of worry during these events can permeate throughout an individual’s life and impact their ability to function on a daily basis. The consequences can be so severe that their general health and wellbeing will start to suffer.

Types of Treatment for Anxiety


Addcounsel is able to offer highly skilled specialists to treat anxiety with various different modalities and techniques, these include, but are not limited to:

CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) for Anxiety

This is a modality that has had consistently positive results in the treatment of anxiety. It is widely used due to its success rates when treating people with anxiety disorders. It often offers long term benefits by providing you with tools and coping methods that you are able to use in your daily life. Through effective CBT treatment for anxiety, not only will you be able to recognise the dysfunctional thought patterns which lead you to feeling anxious, but you will also be able to deal with them in a positive way enabling you to sustain your recovery long after you leave treatment.

Natural Remedies to Treat Anxiety

We offer a whole range of holistic treatments that are able to help an individual with different symptoms relating to their anxiety. From yoga, pilates, Thi Chi, boxing and Ju-Jitsu to excursions and therapeutic activities such as wilderness programmes which will help you reconnect to nature and aims to restore the natural calm to the soul. We also offer spiritual counselling, teach breathing exercises and mindfulness and help you understand the important part nutrition plays for your mental health and how changing certain eating behaviours can help reduce feelings of anxiety.

1:1 Therapy for the Treatment of Anxiety

One to one therapy is a highly effective anxiety treatment method which is used globally to great effect. At Addcounsel, we pair you with the most appropriate therapist, best suited to your unique requirements. Together you will explore the root causes of your disorder and work towards a comprehensive recovery plan which is personalised to all of your own individual needs.

Medication to Treat Anxiety

In some cases, medication may also be needed. The medication will work in conjunction with CBT and other forms of therapy and can act as a extra protective barrier against the anxiety and allow you to further explore some of the deeper, root issues that could be the cause of your anxiety.

Functional Medicine for Anxiety

Functional Medicine uses a biology based approach to focus on assessing, evaluating and then addressing the root cause of a issue. The idea being that every separate diagnosis and symptom may be just one of many contributing factors to someone’s illness. It views the person as a whole as a complex system of answers to the problem of their disease. We understand that certain types of anxiety disorders may be genetic, however we also know that although we mustn’t ignore our genes, they are also not our destiny. Using functional medicine diagnostic testing, such as Nutritional, Neuro-endocrine, Digestive, Immune and Biomolecular we are able to determine your specific needs and create a uniquely personalised treatment plan that will work specifically in conjunction with you, your life style and your own anxiety.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) to Treat Anxiety

More and more clinicians and patients are recognising the benefits of EMDR when used for anxiety. It is a unique treatment that works by directing eye movements while asking the patient to imagine distressing events and helping them to shift their attention toward more positive thoughts, which consequentially causes anxiety to dissipate.

Somantic Experiencing to Treat Anxiety

Somatic Experiencing are healing techniques that are designed to help your nervous system return to a regulated state. They can be used in anxiety treatment to help you focus on where your anxiety is in your body and guide you to a regulated, relaxed state. Your body is naturally designed to be able to do this, however certain life experiences may have caused your nervous system to become dysregulated and unable to respond correctly. A good somatic therapist can work with you to correct this dysfunction.

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (RTMS) to Treat Anxiety

RTMS is a technique that uses a magnet to activate areas the brain. It can be used to treat anxiety by targeting a specific location in the brain where your anxiety originates.

At Addcounsel we understand that coming for treatment for anxiety can be anxiety inducing in and of itself. Rest assured that treatment with us will allow you to provide yourself with the care, attention, time and space that you need to completely address your anxiety, alleviate your symptoms and any physical and/or emotional issues that might be linked. Allow us to help you guide yourself towards a path of strong and sustainable recovery.
