Treating Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety disorders have traditionally been treated with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), being a form of structured therapy which aims to change the way a person thinks and behaves in certain situations by teaching them techniques to manage their anxiety. For example, slow-breathing and changing the focus of attention away from what is causing the anxiety is a common approach that can help change an unhelpful thinking style to one that is more rational. Our psychologists use techniques specific to the anxiety presenting in the individual and that may include CBT, Mindfulness techniques, and other evidence-based approaches to effectively treat anxiety.
