Health Anxiety Counselling
Mental Health Counselling for Health Anxiety – Available in Wolverhampton and Online
Health Anxiety is characterised by an almost constant pre-occupation with the physical well-being of one’s own health – most frequently this will take the form of constant reviewing of how one feels.
This hyper-vigilance (a constant attention) of “feedback” from the body, for example, heart palpitations, headaches and so on can become very obsessive.
People suffering Health Anxiety will almost certainly make regular visits to the local A&E when they experience one of their symptoms and will invariably be assured that “there is nothing wrong with them” by the medical staff there!
Despite the reassurances, however, Health Anxiety sufferers will continue to believe that they genuinely have something wrong with them that the doctors are missing.
Why Do I Suffer Health Anxiety?
The majority of people who we have consulted with for Health Anxiety issues seem to have two common characteristics:
- An obsessive personality type or a vey high desire for control, and
- High use of Catastrophic language patterns
This has led us to believe that in most cases the bodily symptoms that sufferers tend to present with are almost certainly the result of unhelpful thinking or cognitive distortions (what are known as ‘limiting beliefs‘) rather than as a result of real physiological problems.

- Psychodynamic therapy which focuses more on emotional problems and relies on the Therapeutic Relationship to bring about change. Available with Paul.
- General Counselling which is less structured but still provides a safe and non-judgmental environment to discuss issues which is therapeutic in its own right.
- Hypnotherapy is an alternative form of therapy that can be applied to a very wide range of problems and is available with Joan.
