Everyone worries or feels anxious, perhaps getting the odd case of butterflies in their stomach, but when does that everyday anxiety become an issue? Is anxiety interfering with your life? Do you feel you are missing out?
Therapy for Anxiety can bring perspective to your fears and help you to regain control.
Anxiety comes in many different forms such as panic attacks, phobias and fears. You may identify with one or more of the following scenarios:
- You dread the thought of up and coming events, social or work related
- You fear opening your inbox, answering the phone or opening mail
- You find it hard to sleep or wake up frequently worrying about things
Typical symptoms of anxiety
Symptoms of Anxiety range from mild feelings of worry and dread to phobias and panic attacks. Many forms of anxiety are accompanied by distressing physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, shortness of breath, excessive sweating and insomnia. Therapy for Anxiety can help.
What causes these anxious feelings?
Anxiety is often caused by living in the future or the past without being in the present.
Anxiety can have a very limiting effect as we may try to avoid situations which provoke a panic attack or allow anxiety to restrict our choices.
How talking with a therapist about your Anxiety helps?
During the therapy sessions, you are likely to explore the causes or triggers of the anxious feelings and work to develop strategies for managing anxiety through paying attention to your thoughts and physical responses. Therapy can help to reduce anxiety significantly and open up different ways of responding to life’s uncertainties.
