Therapy can be beneficial in decreasing or eliminating symptoms of anxiety. Counseling can assist in sorting out problems and provide a safe environment in which to explore and express feelings. It can assist in the development of better methods to address issues.
For example, you may be operating your adult life with methods you learned as a child, and they simply are not working for you. Working with an experienced therapist can help you identify what is not working for you, or even, what it is that is working against you. Together we can create new behaviors, thoughts, and emotions that help you regain control of your life.
