Anxiety

We all experience anxiety from time to time. Anxiety describes an emotion which is associated with lots of unpleasant physical symptoms and worrying “what if” thoughts. This becomes a problem when we view the worry as excessive, its stops us doing what we want to do and it starts to impact our quality of life and relationships.

Psychological symptoms include:

  • Always feeling worried
  • Tiredness
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Irritability
  • Sleeping badly
  • Feelings of depression

Physical symptoms include:

  • Fast or irregular heartbeats
  • Sweating
  • Pale face
  • Dry mouth
  • Muscle tension and pains
  • Trembling
  • Numbness or tingling in the fingers, toes or lips
  • Fast breathing
  • Dizziness
  • Faintness
  • Indigestion
  • Frequent passing of water
  • Nausea or stomach cramps
  • Diarrhoea
  • Visual disturbance

Sometimes the anxiety is very general, and we can be troubled by lots of different worries or worries ‘themes’. However sometimes anxieties can be specific and can lead to the following “anxiety disorders” (click each one to find out more):

Extensive research has shown that Anxiety is actually very treatable using guided self help, group work, workshops or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
