Supporting Your Well Being and Mental Health

A healthy mind, body and spirit ensures that you can enjoy, connect with and feel things that add to the value of life. At Counselling4Anxiety, we will work with you, so that you can find solutions, paths and ways of experiencing life in a way that has less stress, anxiety and pressure.


How Can I Help?

Over the long term, anxiety can deplete bodily energy, create confusion, a sense of low-self-esteem and a sense that someone ‘cannot do what others do’. At the heart of it, it is about an internalised risk assessment process that those affected by it, go through, as though their internal script is to manage external risks that in many cases, seems much larger than it actually may be.

As a qualified BACP registered therapist, and as someone who has lived with, managed and reduced the impacts of anxiety on my life for over 30 years, I understand how this condition can affect and permeate many parts of a person’s life.


My work on anxiety will include taking a person centred approach where I bring in different modes of work to help someone gain an understanding about the internal risk scanning process of anxiety, the seeds of where it could have come from, how family dynamics also could have impacted on it, and destigmatising feelings, thoughts and emotions that may raise anxiety within individuals.

Honouring the Body

My work also is based on honouring the body’s defensive systems that are aimed at protecting ourselves from danger, creating the opportunity to explore whether these defensive systems are over-reacting to internal or external body situations and allowing people to see and feel anxiety, not as a catastrophic threat, but a part of the body’s inbuilt defensive system that can be adapted back into balance or a form of equilibrium.

Relaxation techniques

I also work on relaxation techniques, visualisations and facilitating new ways of understanding, thinking about, managing and ultimately, reducing anxiety for people who have suffered repeated bouts of anxiety in their lives. This may have taken the form of high stress reactions, muscular tensions, panic attacks, phobias causing low moods, ruminations about fearful thoughts and recurring catastrophic thoughts that seem to carry on. It is also important to add that phobias may be attached to certain situations such as flying, travelling in enclosed spaces, health related fears, thoughts related to shame and even being in the ‘outside world’ (agoraphobia).


Allied with this, I work on feelings of self-esteem, feelings of inadequacy in being able to carry out tasks such as leaving the home, travelling, being in enclosed spaces and ultimately in supporting the development of independent living and decision making. I work on feelings of self-esteem, feelings of inadequacy in being able to carry out tasks such as leaving the home, travelling, being in enclosed spaces and ultimately in supporting the development of independent living and decision making. I fully understand how this can make life feel that it has stopped, but there is a path forward, a way to feel open and confident and a way to feel that life can move forward, albeit small steps as a start.

What Our Clients Say?

“My husband and I started working with Fiyaz after a rough patch in our marriage. My husband had never attended a counseling session before and had a hard time opening up to essentially a stranger. Fiyaz helped my husband open up and communicate by providing him with personal life examples. Fiyaz worked with us both in a meaningful manner and allowed us both to look at our communication tactics differently and, most importantly, in a respectful manner.”

Client H and I (May 2023)

“Fiyaz is a deeply empathetic counsellor. During a period of bereavement, he helped me to process my pain and the many issues that were triggered by the loss. He was also able to help me identify wider issues that were affecting me relating to my identity, drawing upon his own experience, in a way that helped me talk about things I had struggled to talk about with others”.

Client M (2022)

“Fiyaz provided me with the support I needed at exactly the right moments.”

Client E (2023)

“Fiyaz is unlike any therapist I’ve worked with previously. His holistic approach incorporates a range of therapeutic styles to suit my changing needs, utilising traditional tools alongside a tailored, flexible and client-centred focus. All this combined with his naturally open and generous energy has been invaluable in guiding me through a period of life-affirming introspection, discovery and development”
