Anxiety - Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time, both adults and children. For most people, feelings of anxiety come and go. Some moments of anxiety are more brief than others, lasting anywhere from a few minutes to a few days. But for some people, these feelings of anxiety are more than just passing worries or a stressful day at work. Your anxiety may not go away for many weeks, months, or years. It can worsen over time, and can become so severe that it interferes with your daily life. Talking to a qualified counsellor can help reduce anxiety levels and give you helpful ways of managing and coping with your anxiety. www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anxiety/symptoms-causes/syc-20350961 Depression - Most of us feel sad, lonely, or depressed at times but when these feelings become overwhelming, cause physical symptoms, and last for long periods of time, they can keep you from leading a normal, active life. The symptoms can persist for weeks or months and are bad enough to interfere with your work, social life and family life. If this is the case, it is important to speak with a GP and get medical advice. A counsellor will listen to you without judging you and they can help you explore your feelings, acknowledge them and accept them. They can also support you to find your own ways to cope with what you are going through and suggest different strategies and self-care techniques. https://www.nhs.uk/mental-health/conditions/clinical-depression/symptoms/ Trauma and PTSD - Traumatic events usually come out of the blue. Such events can leave us feeling shocked, disorientated, and distressed. We may feel like our world has been turned upside down. Following traumatic events you are likely to experience a range of unfamiliar psychological, emotional, and physical reactions. Different people exposed to the same trauma may respond in different ways. You may have difficulty in collecting your thoughts and handling your feelings about what has happened. A counsellor can help you understand and change how you think about your trauma and its aftermath. Your goal is to understand how certain thoughts about your trauma can cause you stress and make your symptoms worse. One approach is using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which can be helpful in doing this. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/post-traumatic-stress-disorder/symptoms-causes/syc-20355967
