Anxiety

Life can be overwhelming for all of us, anxiety is our body telling us we need to slow down and reevaluate our lives and begin to start making ourself a priority.

You are not alone. Especially in today’s hectic and fast-paced society, anxiety is experienced by most people at some point in their lives. Low levels of anxiety are usually considered normal and can even be motivating. However, when it becomes too much to bear and starts to affect your daily life, anxiety can cause and contribute to numerous mental and physical problems.

It is important to know that anxiety and stress go hand-in-hand. When stress starts to build up in your life, you may feel anxious more often. This anxiety can develop into a disorder if left unchecked. Sometimes there is a clear precipitating factor, such as a traumatic event, that can lead to uncontrollable anxiety. However, most of the time people just experience a general feeling of constant unease, worry, fear, or agitation that persists over time. Whatever the cause, there is help available; no one has to suffer through this alone.

How McDowall Integrative Psychology & Healthcare can help you.

At McDowall Integrative Psychology & Healthcare, we take pride in providing our clients with a warm, confidential and safe environment so you will feel open to discuss whatever is on your mind. Making you feel comfortable each and every time you visit is very important to us.

Some stress at work is normal, but if you find yourself under a lot of pressure and this negatively affects other areas of your life such as your social, personal, and physical domains, then you might benefit from our counselling services.

We provide a confidential, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment where you can speak to one of our therapists about the issues you are experiencing. We will help you implement some coping strategies or improve your existing ones in order to improve your well-being, not simply during your work day but throughout the long-term. We look forward to working with you through the pressures you are facing and help strengthen your resilience to external and internal contributors of stress.
