Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Mental Health Counselling for Generalised Anxiety Disorder – Available in Wolverhampton and Online

Unlike the Anxiety which is associated with very specific triggers (such as Phobias or other Fears) Generalised Anxiety Disorder refers to those experiences of Anxiety that appear to have “no” trigger at all!

For the person suffering with a Generalised Anxiety Disorder this can seem worse than “normal” Anxiety as it can “come-on” at any time and without warning.

GAD can leave a person feeling exhausted as they will tend to become hyper-vigilant (constantly waiting for Anxiety to appear) as they do not know what situations to avoid in order to minimise the chances of becoming anxious.

Why Do I Experience Anxiety?

Anxiety is an absolutely normal reaction to any situation where we believe we are in “danger” (not necessarily that we ARE in danger).

We are “hard-wired” to respond in this way and we do not have any conscious control over the reaction, however, it is crucial to be aware that we DO have control over what we believe is dangerous – it’s not this “Anxiety Reaction” which is “inappropriate”, but what we believe the danger is!

When our mind prepares to deal with danger it considers through three possible ways of solving the problem we are faced with:

(1) FREEZE and hope that the danger goes away,

(2) FLIGHT – escape from the danger, normally by running away, and

(3) FIGHT – confront and fight the danger.

Whichever option we choose our mind ensures that our body is physically ready for any of the solutions by flooding our bloodstream with adrenalin, shutting down the non-essential bodily functions (rationale thinking, digestion etc) and generally preparing for survival.

These chemical changes in our bodies are experienced physically as the symptoms of Anxiety!

Initial consultations are also available as part of our online therapy service.

At TranceForm Psychology we recognise the importance of the therapeutic relationship in helping people to bring about effective change, so its important to be able to ‘meet’ to discuss our change programmes BEFORE proceeding.

Our policy is to help people make a fully balanced & considered decision about undertaking work with us, including both the financial and personal implications.

For most mental health issues we recommend following our 10 session Tranceformental CBT Programme (an advanced version of empirically established Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to overcome a wide range of mental health and behavioural problems.

CBT is a proven, evidence-based form of therapy for developing a fundamental level of understanding into the dynamics of your problem, but also for learning new coping skills and strategies for sustainable change over your life.
