Tailored anxiety therapy in Amsterdam

Understanding and overcoming anxiety

Moving to a new country can bring unique challenges that may contribute to anxiety, such as cultural adjustments, isolation, and the stress of navigating a new environment. My specialized anxiety therapy is designed to address these challenges and more, offering you the support and tools you need to thrive in your journey. 

What is Anxiety Therapy?

Anxiety therapy at Oak Tree Therapy is a personalised process that focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of your anxiety. During various sessions, we will explore factors such as cultural shock, work-related stress, social isolation, and personal history to fully understand your experience. My approach includes cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness practices, and other therapeutic methods tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. 

How Anxiety Therapy can help

Our therapy sessions aim to equip you with effective strategies to manage and reduce anxiety symptoms. These include learning coping mechanisms for stress, techniques for relaxation, and methods to challenge and change unhelpful thought patterns. We also work on building resilience and confidence, empowering you to handle the challenges of life with greater ease.

Addressing the causes of anxiety

Understanding the causes of your anxiety is a crucial step in your therapeutic journey. Anxiety can stem from various sources, including: 

  • Cultural adjustments and language barriers. 
  • Work-related pressures and career uncertainties. 
  • Social isolation and difficulties in forming new relationships. 
  • Feelings of being lonely. 
  • Varying feelings of homesickness and still wanting to stay. 
  • Trauma as a result of previous experiences.
  • Factors that can lead to burnout in the long term.
  • Personal history and underlying psychological factors. 
  • Practical matters over which you have less control, like finding suitable housing and adjusting to the weather.
