What is Anxiety
Anxiety is a mental and physical reaction to threats (Real or Imagined). A little anxiety can be helpful as it protects you from danger. When it occurs too often it can effect the quality of your life.
Symptoms of Anxiety
- Excessive Nervousness
- Feeling of Dread
- Problem Listening
- Poor Concentration
- Heart Racing
- Upset Stomach
- Fear & Avoidance
Types of Anxiety
|Generalised Anxiety||Anxiety and worry in several areas of life. E.g. Feeling overwhelmed with food shopping, finances, house work or responsibilities.|
|Phobias||A very intense fear of a specific object or situation, which is out of proportion to the actual threat. E.g Public Speaking, Talking out in class, Wasps, Spiders.|
|Panic||During a panic attack you may experience uncomfortable physical symptoms and become overwhelmed with dread and fear.|
|Health||You may develop a preoccupation with being seriously ill. If someone believes they have an illness such as cancer or a brain tumour, then any physical sensation may be seen as a symptom of the specific illness, and therefore serves to convince them that they must be seriously ill.|
Cycle of Anxiety
Anxiety ThoughtsSomething bad will happen.

Temporary Relief from AnxietyWhich cause more anxiety.
Feeling AnxiousAdrenaline, Tension, Shaky, Heart Racing, Sweating, etc
BehaviourAvoid or Escape. Leave early, not going out , avoid scary things.
Anxiety drives people to avoid the things that scare them, causing the vicious cycle of anxiety (See diagram). Unfortunately when a scary thing is avoided, there is an immediate but very short sense of relief. However the next time a threat arises it will feel even scarier, thus creating this vicious cycle of avoidance and worsening the anxiety.
