Over the past year and a half anxiety among adolescents has been on the rise. Much of this relates to the stressors brought on by the covid-19 pandemic but regardless of what the triggers are, anxiety can be debilitating if not worked with. What is more is that research suggests that mood disorders like chronic anxiety and various forms of depression have a strong genetic component which emphasises the need for effective support.
This article outlines the therpeutic approach provided by edugrow.co.za in an effort to provide anxiety support in Cape Town.
Anxiety can often been seen as a underlying fear which is can be triggered in situations where people are confronted with that fear. An example would be a severe increase in anxiety when doing a presentation in front of a large group of people. Here the fear may be down to concerns regarding people’s opinions, having many people watching you or even a fear of harsh or critical judgment.
There are various approaches to therapy but a more practical application such as cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Mindfulness has become very popular in recent years. Then there is MBCT or Mindfulness based-cognitive therapy which attempts to merge these approaches, and in doing so provides practical steps that can be learnt in therapy.
If you feel as though anxiety support is needed then it is best to seek professional guidance of an educational psychologist to assist you. For information on educational psychologists in the southern suburbs of Cape Town visit edugrow.co.za
