Anxiety disorders

Anxiety Disorder Counselling in Surrey

Anxiety disorders are much more than just nervousness and worrying. They can be quite terrifying as fear about things that other people wouldn’t give to much thought to magnify. Many people with anxiety disorders understand that their thoughts become irrational, but they still can’t stop them.

When you get anxious, you tend to have this pervasive thinking about some worry or some problem and you feel bad about it. Then you feel like you’ve failed, and you move to depression.

Anxiety is a natural human emotion

It’s normal to feel a level of anxiety or to get a little anxious at times, maybe when preparing for a special event or exam or when entering into unfamiliar situations, such as a new job. Sometimes a certain amount of stress is needed for you to perform well and do your best.

However, if anxious feelings grow to an excessive level and are not dealt with, they become a problem. If you’re suffering from high levels of anxiety, you know how debilitating it can be. Anxious feelings can stop you from enjoying your life, limit you in your career, stop you sleeping and relaxing and can even cause actual physical symptoms resulting in illness, if they are allowed to get out of hand.

Sleep problems

Cold, sweaty, numb or tingling hands or feet
Shortness of breath
Heart palpitations
Dry mouth
Tense muscles
