From time to time, we all face stressful situations in our lives which can lead to strong feelings of anxiety and even panic. Such feelings are a normal reaction and typically do not occur often.
However, if you live with anxiety, these feelings are most likely a common occurrence, and bring significant distress. Anxiety can affect many areas of life, including work, school or home and can cause difficulties in relationships and in one’s mood.
Everyone experiences anxiety differently. However, many people describe feeling constant tension or worry. Moreover, they may struggle with keeping those feelings under control. Consequently, the worries themselves may be irrational and out of proportion. As a result, this causes both mental and physical unease.
Some symptoms you might experience include:
- Excessive worrying and/or a persistent sense of dread
- Feeling agitated or restless
- Panic attacks
- Sleep disturbances
- Shortness of breath and/or racing heart
- Feelings of constant tiredness
- Loss of self-confidence, self-doubt
In this case, according to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), talking therapies are a reccomended form of treatment for anxiety. With this in mind, we have specialists for children, adolescents and adults. Our evidence based therapeutic approaches include CBT, ACT, CFT and psychotherapy.
