Abstract
This study aims to identify the level and symptoms of anxiety experienced by the subject. This study is also conducted to identify the effect of Cognitive Restructuring Techniques (CRT) to reduce the anxiety level experienced by the subject. It utilises a combination of the qualitative and quantitative method (mixed method) and the design of the study focuses on a single case study. The sample was obtained through the purposive sampling, where the subject was selected based on the characteristics that are desired in this study. The Beck Anxiety Inventory-Malay (BAI-Malay) was used to determine the level of anxiety experienced by the subject during the Pre-test, Post Test I, Post Test II and Post Test III. The analysis methods used for qualitative data in this study include observation, transcripts and document analysis. Meanwhile, the descriptive analysis (percentage) was also used for the quantitative data. The results showed that there is a change in the BAI-Malay score of 30.16% (the difference scores of Pre-test and Post Test III) and at the end of the counseling session, the anxiety experienced by the subject was found to be at low level. Observation and transcripts analysis found that the symptoms of anxiety identified are positively reduced at the end of the session. This finding shows that the CRT is moderately effective in reducing the anxiety level of the subject and making the subject more positive in their daily lives.
