Anxiety Disorders – Paul Carver

Paul Carver    Quals: BSc, MSc, PG Dip Hlth Psych

Anxiety Disorders: Paul Carver has expertise in:

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Panic Disorder, with or without agoraphobia
  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Phobias
  • Needle phobia

It used to be that if you were diagnosed as a chronic worrier (GAD), a really compulsive and obsessive person experiencing unwanted or unacceptable intrusive thoughts and behavioural rituals such as checking (OCD), or someone who is chronically shy and suffers from disruptive anxiety on social contact (Social Anxiety Disorder), you had to learn to live with your limitations. Scientific innovation has brought new advances in treatment, and Paul uses the latest specialised forms of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which are remarkably effective in treating what used to be regarded as intractable problems. Anxiety is very common, but experiencing too much of it feels terrible and it is very disabling. It also has a high social cost. Now there is no reason to put off doing something – experience new levels of wellness and get your life back within limited time frames! Panic disorder and phobias are also very responsive to treatment.

Counselling Approach: Paul has a very flexible approach, and a great toolbox from which the right solution for each person can be discovered. He uses Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Relapse Prevention and Interpersonal Psychotherapy, depending on the individual’s need.
