Online Anxiety Therapy

Online Anxiety Therapy

You worry almost all the time and it’s exhausting.

You feel stressed from the moment you wake up. Then, when it’s time to go to bed, you can’t fall asleep. The noise from your mind’s anxious thoughts keeps you awake.

You’ve tried to put on a brave face. But, others have noticed how stressed you are. It may be due to you being irritable and snapping at people. Or, you may need constant reassurance that you’re doing the right thing. They may have offered support, but you turned it down so your friends and family won’t see your flaws. You worry that if they do, they may not like you.
 
Even though your anxiety is quite bothersome, you feel torn about getting help to make it go away. You feel like it motivates you and pushes you to get good results.
 
I get it. Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns my clients face. In fact, according to research, 40 million people live with anxiety.

Everyone experiences anxiety in different ways. But, common signs of anxiety include:

  • Excessive worry
  • Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense
  • Feelings of danger, panic, or dread
  • Irritability
  • Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
  • Increased or heavy sweating
  • Trembling or muscle twitching
  • Weakness or lethargy
  • Difficulty focusing or thinking about anything other than what you’re worried about
  • Procrastination
  • Insomnia
  • Digestive issues
  • Obsessions about certain ideas
  • Catastrophizing: feeling like the worst is always right around every corner
You may be wondering if the anxiety you’re experiencing warrants going to therapy. After all, everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. So how do you know if yours is bad enough to seek help?
 
It’s true that everyone experiences worry and stress from time to time. But, this stress becomes a problem when it impacts your quality of life. When you’re so preoccupied with worry and troublesome thoughts that you can’t enjoy life as you used to, it may be time to seek anxiety treatment.
 
Here’s the good news, you do not have to let anxiety rob you of your happiness. Anxiety is very treatable with online anxiety therapy.

Therapy is most effective when you have a good relationship with your therapist. You should feel comfortable in their ability to support you. That’s why I focus on creating a safe space online for you to talk about your concerns.
 
We will begin our time together by learning tools to help you cope with your anxiety when it arises. I want you to leave your sessions having the tools you need to reduce your distress. Once you can manage your anxiety using these tools, we will work to understand the source of your anxiety. This means exploring what’s causing you to feel this way. We will deal with things in your past that may be contributing to your worry so you can move forward in a healthy way.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

As a therapist, I am trained to provide mindfulness-based stress reduction. By working together, we can explore how mindfulness, meditation, and yoga can help you reduce stress. By using these tools together, you can feel a sense of calm.
 
I acknowledge the fact that your anxiety will not go away completely. After all, some anxiety is normal and it can be helpful in moderation. But, my hope is that your anxiety won’t run your life anymore. I want you to have a better way of managing it. If it does come up, you can feel more confident in your strength and ability to deal with uncertainty and stress.

A Note on Expat Anxiety

As an expat myself, I understand the unique stress expats face as they navigate transitions. Living in their host country or reaccumulating to their country of origin is never easy. It can be quite stressful to deal with constant change and loss.
 
My unique knowledge in this area helps me serve the expat community. I provide online therapy for expats in many countries including the US, UK, St. Kitts, and Nevis. If you don’t see your host country on this list, please reach out to me to inquire about the ways I can support you.
