Anxiety

Some clients feel anxious about something specific, but most have a Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) which means that their feelings are vague, and deep-seated.

Do you feel some of these? :-

  • Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness

  • Problems sleeping

  • Cold or sweaty hands and/or feet

  • Panic attacks

  • Shortness of breath

  • Heart palpitations

  • Phobias

  • An inability to be still and calm

  • Dry mouth

  • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet

  • Nausea

  • Muscle tension

  • A level of fear that is inappropriate to the situation

  • Dizziness

Anxiety is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences at times. Many people feel anxious, or nervous, when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision.

Anxiety disorders, however, are different. They can cause such distress that they  interfere  with  someone’s  ability to lead a normal life.

An anxiety disorder is a serious mental illness.  For clients with anxiety disorders, worry and fear are constant and overwhelming, and can be crippling.

Talking to a professional is powerful because often, once the fears and anxious thoughts are exposed the client can see them more clearly, and can often see for themselves a better perspective.  

 

 

 

Being anxious is an awful feeling, like there is something nasty about to happen.  Life doesn’t have to be like that.
