CONSTANT WORRIERS THERAPY GROUP
Why do we worry?
We sometimes worry in order to try to control our anxiety. The theory is that if you worry about it then you are controlling the situation without actually exposing yourself to it. By worrying we don't actually experience the unpleasantness of the real situation.
Worrying is actually a normal process but for some it doesn't go away and can affect mental health. You may be diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder.
Worrying helps us to come up with a plan (our brain weighs up the pros and cons of each imagined situation) so in some ways it's a good thing. It also helps to tell us that something isn't right and we may have to take action.
However differences in how we think and process information can mean some of us end up in a perpetual state of worry. This will be aggravated if we constantly assume every situation has a negative outcome.
If you feel that you are spending too much time worrying, are very anxious or think you have Generalised Anxiety Disorder then you may benefit from counselling but group therapy may be a more suitable option for you for a number of reasons.
Group Therapy can benefit you in several ways:-
It can help you to feel as though you are not alone.
It is more affordable than face to face counselling.
It can help to increase your self-awareness by hearing others talking about their own, similar issues.
It can help you to receive support from others and for you to do that in return.
