There are several major types of anxiety disorder that include social anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), agoraphobia, panic disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
The experience of highs and lows – the emotional roller coaster of life – can be seen as an inevitable and indeed normal part of life. Our emotions, both positive and negative, form an important and often enriching aspect of our lives. However, when our emotions feel like they are out of control, they can create a cycle of fear, worry, depression and distress.
I offer a relational and integrative approach to working with anxiety and depression that addresses the interplay and patterns that exist between the three main structures of the brain: our thinking/cognitive top brain, our emotional system located in the mid-brain and the autonomic system located in the lower brain.
Together, we explore ways of working that feel most helpful to you.
