Talking Therapies for Anxiety

Talking therapies can help sufferers address the cause of their anxiety

CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), EMDR,counselling and psychotherapy are some of the most common talking therapies and can really help those with anxiety deal with the emotional causes of their anxiety.

Childhood difficulties such as trauma, neglect or difficulties experienced at an early age can leave emotional scars which later on life manifest as anxiety. Our busy, hectic lifestyles often result in people operating at ‘full speed’ and with very little down time we can experience emotional overload, which can show itself in terms of anxiety.

Talking therapies allow you space to work through the issues in your life, coming to terms with any difficulties and for many, being able to better manage the potency that these difficulties often have.

 

The vicious cycle of anxiety is difficult to manage


Anxiety help - Which talking therapy is right for me?

The answer for this will be different for each individual – what works for one may not work for another.

Our team of clinical advisors, who take all our enquiry calls, are qualified as psychologists or psychotherapists and are able to work with you to find the right therapist for you.

 

Different types of talking therapies:

CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) focuses on the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

There is a strong evidence base to support its effectiveness in helping treat common mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and phobias and is one of the most commonly used talking therapies in the NHS.

It does not suit everyone though, particularly because it is often ‘solution’ focused and so some people may benefit from anxiety counselling or psychotherapy.
You can read more about CBT here.

 

Anxiety Counselling and Psychotherapy – within these talking therapies are many different types, such as humanistic, psychodynamic, dialectical behavioural therapy and psychoanalytic.
You can read more about types of counselling and psychotherapy.

 

EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) is a recognised treatment option for anxiety, PTSD and other conditions

EMDR was developed in the 1980’s by a psychologist who was interested in how our brains could be ‘reprogrammed’ to overcome distressing memories and thoughts. You can read more about it here.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.
