Anxiety can be a normal emotional response under times when we feel stressed or worried by life’s pressures such as work deadlines, sitting exams, or speaking in front of people. However, for some people these anxious feelings can be more frequent, happen for no apparent reason, and really start to have a disabling effect on day-to-day life. One in four Australians suffer with an “Anxiety Disorder” making anxiety the most common mental health disorder. The good news is that there are very effective, evidenced-based treatments for anxiety disorders and at CBT Professionals psychology clinics, we have a number of Gold Coast psychologists who are experienced in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders.
General signs and symptoms of anxiety:
* feeling very worried or anxious all of the time
* finding it difficult to relax or stay calm
* experiencing intense episodes of anxiety such as a panic attack
