Sydney Counsellor Recommends Mindfulness-Based Therapies to Reduce Anxiety

Leading Sydney-based counsellor recommends mindfulness-based therapies as a way to reduce stress and anxiety that affects a large percentage of the Australian population.

Sydney, Australia - February 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia with 1 in 4 Australians experiencing some form of stress and/or anxiety at some point. Mindfulness-based therapy as offered by Paul Jozsef Counselling and Psychotherapy is a proven method to reduce the symptoms of anxiety.

While stress and worry are common responses to situations where one may feel emotional pressure, it usually passes once the stressful situation has been resolved, or ‘stressor’ has been removed.

For mild symptoms of anxiety, lifestyle changes, such as regular physical exercise and reducing one’s stress levels may help. For levels of anxiety that begin to impact on one’s life, psychological and/or mindfulness interventions may be beneficial.

Paul Jozsef Counselling & Psychotherapy offers mindfulness-based therapies for the treatment of stress and anxiety in Surry Hills, Sydney.

Mindfulness refers to the mental process that can be characterised by a state of nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment experience, including one’s physical sensations, thoughts, awareness, while encouraging openness, curiosity, and acceptance.

The basic premise underlying mindfulness practices is that experiencing the present moment nonjudgmentally and openly can effectively counter the effects of stressors because excessive orientation toward the past or future when dealing with stressors can be related to feelings of anxiety.

A review of 47 clinical trials involving more than 3,500 participants with mild anxiety found that those who underwent mindfulness training workshops experienced improvement in their mood after eight weeks, on par with the effect seen with prescription medications.

“By teaching people to respond to stressful situations more reflectively rather than reflexively, mindfulness practices can effectively counter experiential avoidance strategies, which are often attempts to alter the intensity or frequency of unwanted internal experiences,” said Paul Jozsef, principal psychotherapist at Paul Jozsef Counselling & Psychotherapy.

Through the treatment of stress and anxiety with mindfulness practices, Jozsef claims that his clients are more resilient and better able to navigate the daily ups and downs of everyday life.

India wins again as South Africa loses 4 wickets in 1 over

Feb 24, 2018

JOHANNESBURG — India's 203-5 was too much for South Africa as the tourists maintained their dominance in the limited-overs games with a 28-run win in the first Twenty20 on Sunday. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, recalled to the India team after a rest, took a T20 career-best 5-24 as South Africa could only muster 175-9 in its response after opting to bowl first. Kumar took three of his wickets in the 18th over, an over which also included a run out, and South Africa was finished off when it went from 154-4 to 159-8 in those six balls. Even before the flurry of...

Unstoppable Kohli leads India to 5-1 hammering of SAfrica

Feb 24, 2018

CENTURION, South Africa — Virat Kohli led India to a 5-1 series hammering of South Africa on Friday, scoring another magnificent century in an eight-wicket win in the sixth and final one-day international. Kohli's 129 not out came off just 96 balls, and he reached his century off 82 balls, as India strolled to 206-2 and past South Africa's 204 all out. India was again barely stretched in humbling the team that was No. 1 in the world rankings at the start of this series. That top ranking was taken by India, which already sealed the series victory, its ninth...

India wins ODI series in South Africa for 1st time

PORT ELIZABETH, South Africa — India won a one-day series in South Africa for the first time, clinching a piece of history with a 73-run victory in the fifth game on Tuesday to lead 4-1 overall with one match left. India's win was set up by 115 from opener Rohit Sharma — his first significant score of the tour — and sealed by wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, the standout bowlers in the series and constant thorns in the side of the South African batsmen. India's first success in an ODI contest in South Africa also came with...

South Africa stays alive in ODI series vs India

Feb 24, 2018

JOHANNESBURG — South Africa stayed alive in the one-day international series against India with an enthralling five-wicket win in the fourth game on Saturday. South Africa chased down a revised target of 202, ultimately with ease, after David Miller was bowled off a no-ball, given a life, and used it crack a match-turning 39 from 28 balls. Miller needed the help of Heinrich Klaasen, who dealt with huge pressure in just his second ODI to score 43 not out off 27 and take South Africa home. South Africa ended on 207-5, winning with 2 1/2 overs to spare when Andile...

Kohli colossal again as India smashes South Africa

Feb 24, 2018

CAPE TOWN, South Africa — Virat Kohli and India's spinners hammered South Africa again on Wednesday in the latest episode of a one-sided ODI series, winning the third game by 124 runs to go 3-0 up with three to play. Kohli was colossal to make 160 not out from 159 balls — his second century of the series — and lead India to 303-6 after South Africa put the tourists in to bat in an effort to find some way to stop Kohli's momentum. That didn't work and, in a repeat of the first two games, South Africa also couldn't...
