Anxiety Therapy 

Have you ever had the feeling like your worry is overbearing, the walls are closing in around you, and breathing becomes a little harder? How about when you have a big deadline or test coming up, and suddenly the built-up nerves hit you all at once, making it difficult to focus on the task at hand? In either instance, you may be encountering anxiety, the body’s natural response to stress and concern for future events. Whether you are experiencing anxious feelings or panic attacks, the Korea Psychological Group is here to help. 

What Is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a mental disorder that arises when you are faced with feelings of stress, unease, or worry. It is a natural and common occurrence that has been felt by every individual at some point in their lives. For some, it can be a fleeting encounter, but for others, it’s harder to just “shake off” any residual feelings of dread or worry. Anxiety can show up differently for each person, but some of the common symptoms include an upset stomach, trouble sleeping, muscle tension, and a fear of the worst happening. 

How Can Therapy Help?

Therapy to address anxiety is centered around sessions where you can delve into what anxiety is and how it shows up in your everyday life. In these sessions, you and your therapist will work to discover where your anxiety may be stemming from and what triggers your anxious feelings. You will learn ways to cope when being confronted with a flight, fight, or freeze response, and in turn, will be equipped to manage your anxiety. 

For those who find themselves in a new environment or country, anxiety can particularly feel heightened during their transition. While there are so many benefits to exploring a new part of the world, there are also many challenges that may cause some feelings of anxiety to arise. At the Korea Psychological Group, we want to help individuals who are looking to find happiness in their new environment by helping them discover the strength within.

Some common areas where anxiety emerges can be:
● Moving to a New Country: Adjusting to a new climate, geography, and landscape can contribute to feelings of anxiety. 
● Cultural Differences: Variations in cultural norms, customs, and traditions may cause anxiety, especially if they conflict with one’s cultural background.
● Social Integration: Building new social networks, making friends, and establishing a sense of community in a new country can be challenging and trigger feelings of social anxiety and loneliness.

While anxiety is a natural response to things that distress you, it doesn’t have to be debilitating, and you don’t have to face it alone. The therapists at the Korea Psychological Group are here to help you find inner peace by tapping into the courage needed to face anxiety head-on.
