West Wellness provides virtual anxiety counselling services in Ontario.
Anxiety is one of the most common mental health challenges facing our world today and this has only increased as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
But what is anxiety? Anxiety is a normal response to stress and can be beneficial to alerting us to dangers in our environment. The difficulties come in when anxiety develops into excessive fear, worry or anxiety and interferes with our everyday functioning and quality of life.
Risk Factors and Symptoms
Both genetic and environmental factors can contribute to an increased risk of developing an anxiety disorder and there are different types of anxiety, such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, OCD, and Panic disorders.
The most common symptoms of anxiety include feeling nervous, restless or on edge, feeling a sense of danger or panic, having trouble controlling worrying, and avoiding things that trigger anxiety.

The goal of anxiety therapy is to support you in building strategies to cope with your anxiety, while working towards addressing distorted patterns of thinking or behaving that contribute to your anxiety.
Our anxiety counsellors can work with you to challenge unhelpful ways of thinking and respond to situations that trigger your anxiety more effectively.
