Nervousness, anxiety, and stress along with fear are normal feelings you experience during certain occasions. Hence, you can become anxious and afraid at any moment when dealing with a traumatic or stressful situation. In general, these feelings would go away once the moment passes. Afterward, you feel a sense of relief. So, to some extent anxiety can be a way for people to cope and learn. Anxiety Treatment can help when people aren’t coping.
Sometimes there are people who tend to remain anxious, stressed, and afraid for long periods of time. At People Psychology in the Melbourne CBD, we refer to these people as those whose anxiety switches are always on. The indicators of anxiety are manifested by mental and physical discomfort.
Anxiety is a common term that refers to various conditions that cause feelings of nervousness, worry or fear. These feelings can affect not only your mind, but also your body. Everyone feels anxious sometimes, especially when facing stressful or challenging situations. However, this is different from having an anxiety disorder. If your symptoms persist and interfere with your normal functioning, you may need professional help. Some of the most common types of anxiety are:
For people who suffer from Generalised Anxiety Disorder – a condition that affects about one in three people at some point in their lives – finding relief can be like being set free from a prison.
We all have moments of anxiety. A crucial job interview; a public speaking engagement; an academic test, even visiting the doctor can all trigger those relatively common sensations – upset stomach, sweaty palms, tense muscles, sleeping problems, even nausea etc. – occasionally.
But if those symptoms have become a regular part of your life, you may be suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder. This kind of chronic anxiety makes it hard to cope with the demands of everyday life. It can cause difficulties at work and in relationships and it can lead to depression and have serious consequences.
Anxiety disorders can manifest themselves in different ways. They can include OCD, agoraphobia, social anxiety or panic attacks. To be diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, you must have experienced at least three of the most common symptoms for at least six months and have trouble controlling them.
Many clients find relief through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or exposure therapy and systematic desensitisation, which are some of the forms of anxiety treatment practised by the experienced team of psychologists who deal with the condition at People Psychology Melbourne, Brighton, Toorak and via telehealth Australia-wide. Our psychologists also teach clients relaxation, biofeedback and other techniques.
Along with these symptoms, your behaviour alters as well. You start to avoid situations and people because you’re afraid of what might happen.
Anxiety symptoms can be grouped into three categories:
