Communication and Anxiety
Many adults experience anxiety when communicating with others. For many people it is hard to know what came first: the anxiety or the communication difficulty. Certainly, having anxiety about speaking in front of others can cause a whole host of issues including difficulty with social skills, voice and fluency. Difficulties in these areas can, in turn, cause more anxiety. At Well Said: Toronto Speech Therapy we are experienced in working with clients suffering from the Communication - Anxiety spiral.
Our clinic is one of the only clinics in Toronto who confronts the reality of anxiety within the scope of our work. Using evidence-based approaches from mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, exposure and desensitization therapy, to acceptance and commitment therapy, we - yes, as speech-language pathologists - will help you to break the cycle of anxiety impacting your communication.
