Our anxiety counsellors here at Utopia Psychological Services, Newcastle-under-Lyme, can help you explore the possible causes and triggers of your anxiety – including those created by employment, relationships and past experiences – and work with you to develop more effective coping strategies.
They can also help you create a personalised recovery plan to bring about healthy change and teach you techniques and tools that will help you manage stressful situations in the future.
As you progress on your journey to reduced anxiety, your therapist will help you to keep on track with your goals, providing ongoing emotional back up and helping you identify any potential barriers to self-improvement.
In tailoring the treatment to your needs, our therapists often use a specific approach such as cognitive behavioural therapy, or they may combine several techniques which suit your circumstances more appropriately.
In some cases medication can also be used (subject to the recommendations of your GP or psychiatrist – which we can arrange for you at our premises), to increase the effectiveness of counselling and ensure you get the most out of your treatment.
