Anxiety is one of the most common symptoms of stress that people experience in life.
It is important to realize that some anxiety is unavoidable and a very normal part of life. It is certainly appropriate to feel anxiety when we take on new challenges or are surprised by unexpected events. In a positive sense, anxiety motivates us and can get us to take important actions.
However, anxiety can also become overwhelming, making us feel out of control, fearful or confused.
If you experience:
• Constant worrying
• Panic attacks
• Avoidance of social situations
• Obsessive thoughts
• Trouble sleeping
• Feelings of being unsafe
• Being overly cautious
• Overreacting to possible threats
you may find anxiety therapy very helpful.
