Some degree of stress and anxiety are a natural part of life—but what about when it becomes too much?
When it gets in the way of your relationships…
…when it makes it harder to leave the house…
…Losing interest in things you usually enjoy…
…when you start drinking more than before…
…when it starts to affect your work…
...Inability to concentrate
....Change in sleep (sleeping too much or not sleeping at all)
If you’ve started to feel fearful, intense, constantly worried and overwhelmed, then you’re in the right place. Anxiety therapy can help you
At Counselling Kenya, anxiety isn’t a general issue we treat, it’s our entire focus. We’ve dedicated our lives to receive the best training out there in order to help you feel better faster.
The thing is, anxiety is actually very treatable with evidence-based approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
In fact, CBT alone is 75% effective for overcoming anxiety in as little as 5-12 sessions and is THE most effective form of treatment for those coping with anxiety.
This means you can trust the time, energy, and investment you make in therapy will be worth it.
We know it feels like a risk to book that first session, but with our expertise and passion for making sure you get access to the highest level of care available, you can feel confident that each session will be full of helpful tools, skills, and new ways of thinking to help you feel better faster--and long term.

Depression. Depression often occurs concurrently with anxiety. Depression can sometimes be seen as lamenting the past and feeling hopeless about the future, whereas anxiety can be seen as an intense preoccupation with the future.
Anger Management Issues. Anger Management can be tied closely to anxiety. After all, anger happens because of excess tension in the body, so anxiety can sometimes be the underlying cause of anger. In other words, anger can be the outward expression of internal anxiety.
Trauma. Anxiety can also be a symptom of deeper trauma. In trauma, there are unresolved, triggering memories that largely affect the nervous system. This results in a nervous system response that tells the brain there is an impending threat. Sometimes, treating the trauma is the way to relieve the anxiety.
Addiction, and eating disorder can also often occur simultaneously with anxiety.
We understand this and specialize in treatments like EMDR (a highly effective trauma therapy) to help you gain and sustain freedom more quickly from these issues so you can live a life you feel good about.
