Fears: Panic Attacks; Phobias; Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Panic attacks, phobias and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) are among the most frequent psychological fears. Psychotherapy offers a range of ways to combat and challenge what are all too real anxieties.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) when combined with traditional psychotherapy can offer a powerful way to diminish the overwhelming and irrational anxieties and thoughts that OCD causes. There are effective ways of working with OCD which can bring long-term and lasting relief.
Phobias are often related to irrational fears and anxieties. By identifying the root cause it is possible to bring the body back into balance and for the phobia to disappear.
Panic attacks are frightening, for some the symptoms feel life threatening; palpitations, shortness of breath even blurred vision. However, the anxiety can be alleviated once the underlying issues which cause them are understood. Exploring these in a safe, calm and caring environment is essential and can lead to greater sense of their meaning, and of how they can be controlled.
