Some clients may faced both anxiety and depression issues at the same time. 

At The Counselling Paradigm, we predominantly use Emotional Freedom Technique as the key modality for anxiety therapy.

There has been many evidence-based research studies that support the efficacy of EFT for reducing anxiety

We have worked with many clients over the years and supported them in their healing journey to resume their quality of life, gaining access to freedom from the deep-seated fears that they have. 

I was having so many triggers of anxiety that I could not go out and meet my friends. I could not understand why I cannot handle them. I always feel anxious. After seeing Ms Faith Foo, she helped me reduce my social anxiety and phobia , and resolved what I have been feeling for so long. I no longer have anxiety attacks when I meet my friends now."


Client KC (Anxiety Therapy Singapore)

I have been having panic attacks for the past 6 months with no improvement even though I try many self-help techniques.

My friend recommend me to try to see a counsellor. I tried another counselling centre and they tried cognitive behavioural therapy on me but it does not help me much.

After that , I tried went to The Counselling Paradigm and tried Emotional Freedom Technique because I read that it was effective for many people with anxiety. Ms Faith helped me worked through my anxiety attacks. I no longer have panic attack since then.
