Health Anxiety Counselling Wolverhampton
Psychology & Psychotherapy for Health Anxiety in Wombourne
Health Anxiety is characterised by an almost constant pre-occupation with the physical well-being of one’s own health – most frequently this will take the form of constant reviewing of how one feels.
This hyper-vigilance of “feedback” from the body, for example, heart palpitations, headaches and so on can become very obsessive.
People suffering Health Anxiety will almost certainly make regular visits to the local A&E when they experience one of their symptoms and will invariably be assured that “there is nothing wrong with them” by the medical staff there!
Despite the reassurances, however, Health Anxiety sufferers will continue to believe that they genuinely have something wrong with them that the doctors are missing.
Why Do I Suffer Health Anxiety?
The majority of people who we have consulted with for Health Anxiety issues seem to have two common factors:
- An Obsessive personality type
- High use of Catastrophic language patterns
This has led us to believe that in most cases the bodily symptoms that sufferers tend to present with are almost certainly the result of badly managed thinking or cognitive distortions (what are known as ‘limiting beliefs’) rather than as a result of real physiological problems.
