Anxiety is an overwhelming sense of worry and dread. You realize that you are worrying about everything and anything. Things that others do not even think of. You cannot let this worry go. It goes round in circles & gets to a point where you cannot think clearly. The worry keeps you awake and you feel ‘on edge’ all the time. You feel nauseous, nervous, panicky. It feels as if something bad is bound to happen. With this worry comes a racing heart, pit in your stomach, tight chest, difficulty breathing, you battle to concentrate and become forgetful.
We will work together to identify stressors or triggers. I will get you sleeping well and taking care of yourself again. We will work on therapeutic techniques such as mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy (reframing your thought process). If talk therapy is not enough, we will discuss various medication options which may be short-term relievers or more long-term anxiety dampeners such as anti-anxiety antidepressants.
