How talking therapy can help you beat anxiety

For many people it’s easier to be honest about yourself and your feelings with someone who’s outside the situation and won’t judge. Your therapist will help you understand how your thoughts, feelings and what you do all affect each other and how you can make these more positive. Your therapist will

  • understand your particular experience of anxiety
  • offer you coping strategies that help banish worrying thoughts
  • help you change unhelpful beliefs about yourself and situations
  • help you introduce balance in your life to find a better future.

Talking therapy can help you turn your life around - you're one step away from getting help to beat anxiety.
