Anxiety seems to be so much a part of everyday life in some shape or form – feeling a bit stressed or worried, feeling nervous or apprehensive, to feeling overwhelmed, or to having some more difficult experiences such as panic attacks or when the dread and worry are prevalent.
Symptoms include difficulty concentrating, restlessness, confusion, obsessive and worried thoughts, frustration and despair. A person with anxiety may feel tense and have uncomfortable physical sensations such as sweating, trembling, nausea, a racing heartbeat and difficulty breathing. If these symptoms are severe and sudden a person may be experiencing a panic attack. Headaches, insomnia, digestive problems and a feeling of light headedness may also eventuate.
Because anxiety can interfere with sleeping, eating patterns, ability to manage work or study, relationships and other more routine activities it is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy. Effective therapy can significantly reduce or eliminate symptoms and allow the person to regain a sense of wellbeing and be able to resume regular activities.
