Anxiety Counselling Surry Hills

Paul Jozsef Counselling & Psychotherapy provides psychological and emotional health support for anxiety issues.
My name is Paul. I’m a counsellor and psychotherapist based in Surry Hills, Sydney. I specialise in working with adults and adolescents experiencing difficulty with anxiety issues.
What is anxiety?
Anxiety or worry is a normal response to a present or imagined threat. However, when worries disrupt or interfere with daily life or if the symptoms persist long after the danger has passed, it may be helpful to seek anxiety therapy.
Anxiety can be caused by either one or a combination of factors. These include genetics, ongoing stress, family history, physical health issues or a traumatic event.
Common symptoms of anxiety include:
- Persistent, excessive or unrealistic worries
- Intense excessive worry about social
- Panic attacks
- An underlying sense of danger
- Intense, irrational fear of everyday objects and situations
What is anxiety counselling?
I offer a range of evidence-based treatments to help you identify why you feel anxious and equip you with the necessary skills and strategies to deal with anxiety and situations that may trigger it. Using a variety of cognitive and behavioural techniques, counselling for anxiety can help you move toward a more comfortable and contented life.
Anxiety counselling may include cognitive restructuring techniques, challenging and changing negative thought patterns, working toward the acceptance of uncertainty, mindfulness practices, as well as, breathing and muscle relaxation exercises.
Counselling for anxiety can be very effective at helping you learn to recognise the triggers of your anxiety, its origins, and how to overcome it.
My practice is conveniently located in Surry Hills, a short walk from Central train station.
If you are interested in discussing your specific needs, how I might be able to help, or to book a free, no obligation brief consultation (5-10 minutes), please feel free to contact me.
