Is online counselling a good way to treat anxiety ?

I am a lady of 20 yrs. I am in a lot of tension and worry regarding my studies. I have read an article on anxiety and the symptoms given there are very similar to mine. The onset of symptoms was 4 months back when I had rapid heart beat, restlessness , chills etc. It has happened 6-7 times since then. I feel counseling can solve my problem. Please tell me some tips to remain happy and tension free. How do I drive away the tension causing thoughts from my mind?? Can I get counseling through internet for that??

Dear,thanks for query.You are not alone, lots of teenagers in your age are having this kind of issues.The best option is talking to somebody whom you can trust and share your problems,it may your friend or relative.Still if you are not comfortable with this you can visit any psychiatrist first who can solve your problem.Medicines are not required in every case.Try to avoid the areas where you are not comfortable with.When ever you are having problem,try to recollect the achievements that you had in past.Try yoga and meditation they will increase your inner strength.Also try to remain active and do some new creative activity all the time.Bye.
