Anxiety Counseling in Wilmington, NC

You feel nervous and worried all the time. Your brain just won’t turn off. You overanalyze constantly. It gets in the way of your job, your relationships, and your goals. You find yourself stuck thinking about the past and planning for the future.

Anxiety Feels Like:

  • Feeling out of control when an event pops up that you weren’t planning for.
  • Having panic attacks.
  • When you’re especially worried or fearful, your heart starts pounding, your breathing become shallow, and you start sweating more than normal.
  • Making lists, lists, and some more lists.
  • Laying down at night and your brain suddenly decides to go into overdrive
  • Your heart pounding when you experience any type of conflict or disagreement- no matter how big or small.
  • You may begin avoiding situations that you were previously comfortable in because you don’t want to experience the anxiety.

How we help:

Our counselors help you identify the worrisome and fearful thoughts that drive the anxiety in the first place. We will help you learn your patterns of anxious thoughts and the reactions your body has to those thoughts. We help you gain awareness to these patterns, appreciate your emotions, and develop strategies to cope. We teach mindfulness as a tool to help manage your thoughts and boss your brain. We help you turn down the volume of your anxiety and help you feel in control again. 

During anxiety counseling we will:

  • Discover self-limiting negative beliefs (for example I’m not good enough, I’m not worth it)
  • Practice redirecting and replacing the false negative beliefs with positive beliefs
  • Review your progress session to session to make sure we’re on the right track and targeting your goals

We can help you- you are in the right place.

Anxiety can be overwhelming. Feeling tense and nervous all the time is no way to live. We can help, it’s time to make a change in your life now.  At the end of therapy, you will feel more secure, have a greater sense of control over your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and increase your acceptance of yourself and those around you.
