How can I cope with anxiety
|what is a way for me to deal with anxiety|
Hello there! It’s great that you reached out to Ask Alex, and we want to begin by acknowledging that dealing with anxiety can be incredibly challenging.
Anxiety can manifest in various ways, and different strategies work for different people. Some find relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises or mindfulness helpful, while others benefit from talking to a trusted friend, family member, or a professional therapist. Remember that you don’t have to go through this alone; seeking support is a sign of strength.
Your feelings are valid, and it’s important to take steps to address them. One resource we’d like to mention is the Digital Mental Health and Wellbeing Programmes available through the ISPCC. These programmes offer valuable support and guidance for managing anxiety, and you can access it at your own pace, with a supporter along the way. There is lots more information about them here www.ispcc.ie/guided-digital-programmes/.
The Childline Team is here for you 24/7 too, ready to lend a compassionate ear and support you in exploring your options. You can contact us at 1800 66 66 66 or reach out through Live Chat at www.Childline.ie whenever you’re ready. You are never alone in this journey, and we are here to help support you through it. Take care, and don’t hesitate to reach out, confidentially, whenever you need someone to talk to.
Warm regards, look after yourself,
