Combat Anxiety

Anxiety can vary from you having a fear of flying, a phobia about spiders or you are worried about the future – we are here to help you conquer these fears.

Suffering with Anxiety

Anxiety believe it or not, is a normal part of life, and as such it can be difficult to recognise when it is becoming a problem. If you are experiencing strong feelings of anxiety, or they are lasting for a long time, it becomes quite exhausting and overwhelming.

The symptoms and problems associated with anxiety will differ between each individual, but depending on the kind of problems you experience, you may be diagnosed with a more specific anxiety disorder.

Types of Anxiety

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is characterised by an excessive, uncontrollable and often irrational negative expectation about events or activities. Suffering from GAD invariably interferes with your ability to function in your daily life. GAD sufferers are often concerned about everyday things such as money, poor health, family or friendship problems, or problems at work.

If you are suffering from Panic Disorder you will often find yourself experiencing unexpected panic attacks. Symptoms often include periods of intense fear that may include palpitations, shaking, getting short of breath, profuse sweating, or an overwhelming fear that something terrible is going to happen.

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is a type of disorder that installs a significant amount of fear in one or more social situations. This will often cause the sufferer considerable distress and impair their ability to function in parts of daily life. These fears are often triggered by a perceived or actual scrutiny from others.

Obsessiveā€“compulsive disorder (OCD) is a disorder that compels people do things like: checking things repeatedly, performing certain routines or having certain thoughts repeatedly. People are unable to control either the thoughts or the activities for more than a short period of time. OCD varies from the minor form that seem trivial – such as numbers having to be even, to the severe where a person cannot go about their normal daily life.

Phobias are one of the most common forms of anxiety disorder. A phobia is defined as a persistent fear of an object or of a particular situation. An affected person will often go to extreme lengths to avoid the feared object or situation, usually to a degree far greater than the actual danger posed. Common phobias are a fear of spiders, fear of heights, fear of flying.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that usually develops after a person is exposed to a traumatic event. Common triggers to PTSD can be: warfare, car crashes, sexual assault, or other threats on a person’s life. Symptoms may include upsetting thoughts, feelings, or dreams related to the events. They may also suffer mental or physical distress to trauma-related cues, altering how a person thinks and feels.
