FIND FREEDOM FROM STRESS & ANXIETY
Essex Anxiety Therapy offers a comprehensive programme that targets anxiety and how to manage it more effectively. Developed by Helen Stammers through her 12 years experience working in the charity and NHS mental health sector as an Occupational Therapist, the programme offers tools and strategies to change responses to anxiety, learn how to relax and let go of unhelpful thoughts. Being free of the battle with anxiety allows mental space and physical energy to focus on what is really important to you.
THE ANXIETY THERAPY PROGRAMME
The Anxiety Therapy Programme focuses on the following key areas:
1. SOOTHE – calm the fear response through understanding the brain’s regulation systems
2. CONNECTION – to the present moment with mindfulness skills
3. COMPASSION – treating yourself kindly to build coping and confidence
4. CALM – using breathing, relaxation and visualisation skills to connect with relaxation
5. CONTROL – building more helpful strategies to gain control and resiliance
A FREE no obligation initial consultation is available. This is to give you the opportunity to explore your needs and difficulties in a safe confidential space. Attending therapy can feel daunting especially when you are not sure what to expect. There is no one size fits all, so I ensure that we work to your own pace. The consultation also ensures that you feel comfortable and confident with the therapy process
Difficulties in conceiving and going through fertility treatment can be stressful and anxiety provoking. It is important that you feel supported during this time to minimise impact on mood and relationships with others.
pregnancy, birth & postnatal anxiety
Pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period can be filled with worry, uncertainty and feeling out of control. The mind is a powerful tool and we can better utilise it to help influence our mindset and how to cope with these anxieties.
Work in this highly competitive and pressured culture can generate stress and anxiety. Feelings triggered from uncertainty, change or conflicts can be difficult to manage, influencing difficulty in achieving fulfilling work life balance.
Life transitions can include career change, parenthood, menopause, retirement and relationship breakdown. The adjustment is a vital part in processing change and emotions.
