Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns today, and counselling for anxiety is one of the most effective ways to manage & reduce it

While anxiety does serve a purpose and is a part of every person, if it gets out of hand it can cause a host of problems such as difficulty sleeping, physical pain or discomfort, or trouble in relationships.

Our therapists can provide you with simple tools & strategies to help turn down the volume on your anxiety and address the root cause of it. If in-person counselling feels a bit overwhelming or you’re not in the South Surrey area, our counsellors can also provide online therapy anywhere in British Columbia.

There are many kinds of anxiety, so there are also a variety of symptoms that can be attributed to it. Many people exhibit signs or symptoms of anxiety that include, but are not limited to:

  • Fear and stress in social situations
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Avoidance of social situations
  • Avoidance of work or school
  • Panic attacks
  • Anxiety attacks
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Negative thoughts or fears that you can’t get out of your head
  • Headaches or stomach aches with no medical explanation
  • Tense muscles/body aches with no medical explanation
  • Irritability with friends or loved ones
  • Procrastination

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms above, counselling services can help. Even if it seems like it’s not that bad, it’s important to seek therapy when you start to notice these symptoms as anxiety can get worse if left untreated. Anxiety can also lead to depression

Therapy for anxiety treats these symptoms, but it also provides insight into why you are experiencing anxiety in the first place. Once you understand the root cause, there are many simple things you can do to reduce your anxiety and manage it when you feel like it’s getting to be too much.

What Causes Anxiety?

Anxiety can develop following a major life event  (e.g., moving houses, relationship break up, becoming a parent, changing schools, graduation, illness), or other times it can seemingly develop out of nowhere. It often runs in the family (genetics) as many people can usually point to a couple of relatives who probably have anxiety

The most important things to know are that anxiety therapy is highly effective, and you don’t have to face anxiety on your own. Our therapists in South Surrey are available to see clients at our office (which is also easily accessible from Langley, White Rock, and Delta), or they can provide online counselling to anyone in British Columbia.
