Therapy for Anxiety in Edmonton
Anxiety shows up differently for different people so it can sometimes be hard to identify. Some people know they’re anxious. Others feel like they’ve got a problem but don’t initially identify it as anxiety per se.
However, most people who experience anxiety (whether they know it or not) experience at least one or a couple of the following symptoms:
Although traditional counselling based on talking about your problems might provide some temporary comfort, it’s unlikely to produce lasting change. Research shows that effective treatments for anxiety involve much more than talk.
Effective treatments for anxiety (such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) might look more like cross between talk-based counseling, coaching, and a highly individualized course that educates and empowers you to reflect on and make changes in your life and equips you with knowledge and skills you need to be less anxious and more confident and balanced. Because effective treatments involve learning anxiety management strategies with the help of a psychologist, over time you develop the ability and confidence to help yourself. This produces much deeper and longer lasting change than a talk-based counseling.
