Anxiety Therapy

Do you feel overly tense, hypervigilant and apprehensive, perhaps with feelings of panic, obsessions or compulsions? Then you may suffer from some sort of anxiety.

If it returns again and again over longer periods of time, feels hard to cope with and is debilitating to your general well-being and everyday functioning, you may need to get help for your anxiety.

WE CAN HELP YOU WITH ANXIETY

If you suffer from anxiety, it may help you to talk to a therapist. Here's a selection of the verified and qualified therapists on PlusGuidance who can help you identify and work with you to overcome this. Most of them offer consultations.


TYPES OF ANXIETY


GENERALISED ANXIETY DISORDER (GAD)

Long-term, recurring anxiety and excessive or disproportionate worrying about several areas of your life like relationships, work performance or financial matters.

PANIC DISORDER

Frequent or recurring panic attacks, fear and anxiety that seem to arise from nowhere. Symptoms often involve palpitations and intense feelings of panic.

SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER (SOCIAL PHOBIA)

Excessive and unreasonable fear of social situations. People with social phobia tend to feel intense nervousness and heightened self-consciousness from the fear of being watched, judged and criticised by others.

OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD)

Obsessive and unreasonable thoughts or fears leading to compulsive behaviours. It is an anxiety disorder because not acting upon these obsessions leads to excessive anxiety.

SPECIFIC PHOBIAS

Excessive fear towards a specific thing or situation, leading to anxiety when exposed to those things. There are many distinct types of phobias, for example arachnophobia (fear of spiders) and agoraphobia (fear of specific environments).

SEPARATION ANXIETY DISORDER

Intense anxiety following the separation from home or people you're very attached to.
