Anxiety disorders can result in significant personal, social and occupational costs to how we live our lives.
Anxiety disorders can present in many different ways:
- Panic Disorder
- Generalised Anxiety Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Social Anxiety
However, some symptoms common to most anxiety disorders, including:
- Racing heart beat
- Tightening of the chest
- Rapid breathing and/or shortness of breath
- Avoidance of situations that make you feel anxious.
Psychological therapies can help people learn to reduce physical symptoms, avoidance behaviour and the worry associated with anxiety as well as providing coping techniques for dealing with anxiety in day-to-day life.
