Anxiety Counselling in Perth

Is anxiety taking its toll on your personal relationships, performance at work or general day-to-day wellbeing? At Ashcliffe Psychology in Perth, our experienced psychologists and therapists can help you overcome your feelings of anxiety by equipping you with valuable tools that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

We adopt an evidence-based approach to helping people manage anxiety, depression and other mind-sets that prevent you from achieving the things you want in life.

Directors Michael Tunnecliffe, Kerryn Ashford-Hatherly and the rest of our team of psychologists and therapists have worked with countless clients over the years, dealing with everything from general anxiety and social anxiety to phobias and obsessive-compulsive behaviour.

Rather than adopt a “one size fits all” approach, we understand that there are many forms of anxiety, each of which stems from different origins and schemas. We work alongside you in a one-on-one environment to identify the underlying causes of your anxiety, so that we can assist you to address the issue at its core.

If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may benefit from anxiety treatment with us

  • Panic attacks (whether they’re rare or frequent)
  • Constant feeling that something bad is about to happen
  • Inability to stop thinking about the same things obsessively
  • Feelings of irritability and restlessness
  • Difficulty concentrating or maintaining a single line of thought
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Tight feeling in your chest
  • Hot/cold flushes
  • A tendency to steer clear of situations which make you feel uncomfortable
  • Things like increased heart rate, tension in the muscles and hyperventilation (rapid breathing) are the result of certain hormones being released into our system, which induces a fight or flight response.

    When we are stressed or anxious about things that we can’t fight or escape from (like mortgage debt, looming deadlines or lack of confidence in social settings), our bodies can get stuck in this chemical response to danger.

    Ashcliffe psychologists and therapists can help you to overcome or manage your anxiety

    It’s completely normal to feel awkward or unsure about seeking therapy for your anxiety. It could be that you don’t know how to express your thoughts and emotions, or the idea of confronting the root cause of your anxiety is daunting.

    At Ashcliffe Psychology we are with you every step of the way. Not only do our psychologists and therapists teach you how to navigate your feelings of anxiety and regain control, but you’ll learn a variety of self help strategies, including coping techniques, relaxation exercises and problem-solving skills.

    Even simple breathing exercises can help alleviate those common symptoms of anxiety like butterflies in the stomach, “jelly legs” and an inability to concentration.

    Whether you have suffered with anxiety your entire life, or it is something that has only started affecting you recently, our personalised anxiety counselling in Perth aims to help you better manage your anxiety so you can function better and take charge of your mental well-being.
