Anxiety is a normal human reaction to the stressors life presents. We all worry or feel nervous at certain times in our lives. We also need (some) anxiety to help us perform at our best at sporting events, performances, public speaking, or when we go on that date.
But if we have too much anxiety, and it persists, then it can become hugely problematic.
Anxiety disorders can significantly impact a person’s day-to-day life. People can struggle with school, work, social situations, or indeed everything they do. Prolonged anxiety can also seriously impact our relationships with friends and family.
While anxiety medications can (potentially) have some short-term benefits, they are limited, and can also have potential negative side-effects.
To the contrary, psychological treatment is highly effective at treating anxiety.
Psychologists work alongside clients to explore the underlying cause of anxiety, and then treat the factors maintaining it. This can, and does, lead to dramatic improvements in life.
