ANXIETY REDUCTION PROGRAMME
Essex Anxiety Therapy offers a comprehensive programme that targets anxiety and how to manage it more effectively. Developed by Helen Stammers through her 12 years experience working in the charity and NHS mental health sector as an Occupational Therapist, the programme offers tools and strategies to change responses to anxiety, learn how to relax and let go of unhelpful thoughts. Being free of the battle with anxiety allows mental space and physical energy to focus on what is really important to you.
The Programme focuses on the following key areas:
1. SOOTHE – calm the fear response through understanding the brain’s regulation systems
2. CONNECTION – to the present moment with mindfulness skills
3. COMPASSION – treating yourself kindly to build coping and confidence
4. CALM – using breathing and massage to connect with relaxation
5. CONTROL – building more helpful strategies to gain control and resiliance
I welcome any queries and would be happy to arrange a phone consultation. Following this an initial consultation appointment can be arrange in order to explore your individual needs and goals for therapy.

Anxiety is a natural emotion to experience as part of daily life. However, getting caught up with anxious thoughts and feelings can lead to distress and the need to try and control it. This can get in the way of daily activities and relationships.
pregnancy, birth & postnatal anxiety
Pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period can be filled with worry, uncertainty and feeling out of control. The mind is a powerful tool and we can better utilise it to help influence our mindset and how to cope with these anxieties.
Work in this highly competitive and pressured culture can generate stress and anxiety. Feelings triggered from uncertainty, change or conflicts can be difficult to manage, influencing difficulty in achieving fulfilling work life balance.
Life transitions can include career change, infertility, conception difficulties, parenthood, menopause, retirement and relationship breakdown. The adjustment is a vital part in processing change and emotions.
