Types of Anxiety

Many people don’t realise that there are lots of different types of anxiety. Lots of people experience symptoms of more than one type of anxiety condition. The most common types are:

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Social Anxiety
  • Panic Disorder
  • Specific Phobias
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Counselling Sessions

Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a counsellor listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues. Our sessions let us listen to you and support you without judging or criticising. They can be extremely useful for young people, particularly as they help you to understand why certain emotions are so prevalent.

The sessions take place remotely which allows young people to be comfortable in their own environment. The time between each session provides an opportunity to practise the changes discussed. It is a collaborative process between counsellor and individual. Moreover, it is a chance for you to see that you are not alone.

The cost per session is £60 (sessions last for 50 minutes).

About

There are lots of things that can affect the way young people see their world. Talking to your peers about those issues can often feel like the most difficult thing imaginable. We want to educate young people about how anxiety works so that they are in a position to support their friends, and so that they can seek support if and when they require it.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Whilst everyone has anxious feelings at some point in their life, some people find it hard to control and manage those feelings. The symptoms can be both psychological (feeling worried and having trouble concentrating) and physical (heart palpitations).
