What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. It’s an ongoing condition characterized by excessive, long-term worry and fear about everyday situations. While feeling anxious occasionally is a normal part of life, people with anxiety disorders find it hard to control their worries. This can lead to physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat, difficulty breathing, and even panic attacks.

Anxiety can also affect a person’s ability to concentrate, sleep, and engage in daily activities. Seeking support from mental health professionals and implementing coping strategies can greatly help individuals with anxiety disorders manage their symptoms and improve their overall well-being.

Symptoms of Anxiety

Symptoms of anxiety can pervade every aspect of life, making each day a challenge. The symptoms include:

  1. Restlessness: A feeling of being on edge.

  2. Fatigue: Constant tiredness and lack of energy.

  3. Concentration Issues: Difficulty focusing on tasks.

  4. Irritability: Easily annoyed or angered.

  5. Muscle Tension: Persistent muscle discomfort.

  6. Sleep Disturbances: Trouble falling or staying asleep.

  7. Panic Attacks: Sudden episodes of intense fear.

  8. Social Avoidance: Avoiding social situations due to fear.

With our counselling services, manage these symptoms and embark on the journey to well-being.
