Lanka Templeman Social Anxiety Therapy and Coaching
My approach to counselling
Does any of this sound familiar?
- You are very self-critical
- You usually imagine the worst case scenario
- You overthink decisions
- You find negative feedback very hard to handle
- You replay your interactions repeatedly
If your answer is yes, you are probably are experiencing anxiety to some degree. If you are anxious, the above may well lead to excessive worry when encountering situations like -
- Interacting with unfamiliar people
- Attending parties or social gatherings
- Going to work or school
- Starting conversations
- Making eye contact
- Romantic relationships
- Making decisions
- Standing up for yourself
If you regularly rearrange your life in order to avoid these and other situations, anxiety has taken on a specific form and counselling will help.
Using a combination of counselling and coaching, my Anxiety therapy can help you to:
Manage panic attacks
Increase your confidence
Decrease the overly critical voice
Teach you how to be assertive
Receive criticism without being broken by it
Break out of isolation
Make the most of your life
Put most simply- Your confidence will increase allowing you to deal with the new, make decisions and engage in relationships without the over-thinking and fear.
Counselling will take a commitment of your time and money so, it is always worth considering whether it is the right time for you. I offer an initial session at reduced cost so we can meet, see how we get along and, decide how you would like to proceed.
There are also some useful articles on this website that can help you decide.
If you are ready, I can help.
