What is anxiety?

Its normal to feel anxious from time to time, it's our bodies natural response to protect ourselves when we feel like we are in danger. However, if you have persistent feelings of fear, worry or nervousness then it's likely that your anxiety is becoming a problem. Anxiety can have both emotional and physical repercussions on the body and it may be difficult to carry out normal day to day duties. The physical symptoms of anxiety can include, tightness of the chest, feeling nauseated, pounding heartbeat, sweaty palms and headaches. 

Anxiety may becoming a problem if you are experiencing any of the following  symptoms, such as:

  • Feeling restlessness all the time

  • Experiencing panic attacks

  • Avoiding situations you know will make you anxious 

  • You feel as if your emotions are blown out of proportion in harmless situations

  • It interferes with your everyday life

  • You have intrusive/disruptive thoughts 

  • You feel like you can't control these thoughts and feelings

How Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can help me.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy helps you understand the link between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. CBT is known to help find ways to overcome your anxiety by identifying any negative patterns which cause your anxiety and transform them with healthy, positive thoughts and feelings.This is achieved by a concept called Systematic Desensitization, which is also known as exposure therapy. Your therapist will gradually expose you to situations which would normally trigger your anxiety. Eventually you will learn to replace any negative thoughts and feelings with positive ones.
