Anxiety disorder therapists

Melbourne Counseling are anxiety disorder therapists specialising in its treatment. Anxiety is an umbrella term that encompasses a wide range of clinical problems, so there are a wide variety of anxiety treatments to suit. Anxiety is essentially excessive fear, which usually leads to some form of avoidance. This diagnosis of anxiety predominately refers to children who display inordinate fear of being separated from a primary caregiver, such as a mother or father. The distress experienced by them is quite significant and is very hard for them to control. Essentially, these children worry excessively about whether harm will come to their parent or toward themselves. They often complain of various physical ailments prior to, and during the separation, such as headaches, stomach aches, nausea, etc. Successful treatment of this disorder involves not only counselling of the child, but also behavioural consultation with the parent.
