Anxiety is something that everyone experiences. It can be from meeting new people, having to do a presentation at work, or any other of a variety of normally stressful situations. There is a difference between this anxiety and problematic anxiety. Having anxiety that is unrealistic, unwarranted, and disruptive to your life is problematic. Anxiety that interferes with your normal daily functioning and relationships is problematic as well.
Anxiety disorders are based around having an unrealistic fear, worry, and uneasiness about a situation, or a variety of situations. Anxiety may also present in a physical way such as restlessness, fatigue, pacing, and sweating. It can also lead to problems with concentration on tasks and situations at hand. Anxiety in this form may be associated with an object or person, however, it is what you are feelings and why you are feeling this way that is the main focus. There is no one cause of anxiety. A negative or traumatizing experience with the situation is often times at the root of the anxiety, but it is different in every person.
Anxiety does not have to be a debilitating disorder. There are ways that we can work towards reducing your anxiety. Through a variety of therapies and relaxation techniques we can develop a new plan of action for dealing with your anxiety. We can work on an approach that is suited best for your needs and expectations from therapy. Bring back some joy and serenity into your life; work towards a happier and healthier you.
