What is anxiety?
While stress and anxious feelings are quite normal responses to times when we feel under pressure, this discomfort will usually dissolve once the stressful event has passed.
However, people with anxiety disorders are more likely to have intense, excessive and persistent worry about everyday situations. These worries are experienced as overwhelming, interfere with daily functioning, are difficult to control and out of proportion to the actual danger. Avoidance (of places or situations in an attempt to prevent the associated fear or worry) is a common behaviour of anxiety.
This is where anxiety counselling can be helpful to reduce anxiety and its symptoms and improve your life.
