Anxiety & Anxiety Disorders
Anxiety is what you feel when you are worried, tense or afraid.
Worrying excessively about things that are about to happen or things you think COULD happen in the future.
Anxiety is a natural human response when you perceive that you are under threat. It can be experienced through your thoughts, feelings and physical sensations.
Anxiety can become a mental health problem if it impacts on your ability to live your life as fully as you want to.
A panic attack is when your body experiences a rush of intense mental and physical symptoms. It can come on very quickly and for no apparent reason.
Having a panic attack can be very distressing and frightening.
Symptoms include: a racing heartbeat, sweating, nausea, chest pain, difficulty breathing, trembling, hot flushes, shaky limbs, a choking sensation, dizziness, a feeling of dread or a fear of dying, a churning stomach, a tingling in your fingers, feeling like you’re disconnected from your body.
Phobias & Fears
A phobia is an excessive and irrational fear of something that’s unlikely to hurt you.
The word itself comes from the Greek word Phobos, which means fear or horror.
When you have a phobia, you experience intense fear of a certain object or situation with a deep sense of anxiety, panic or dread.
Depression is characterised by ‘going into yourself’, experiencing persistent sadness, hopelessness and a loss of interest in activities that you normally enjoy.
These feelings can persist for weeks, months or years and interfere with your work, social and family life.
Trauma & PTSD
Trauma is caused as a person experiences a traumatic event (an accident, assault, disaster, or act of terror) or a prolonged series of traumatic events (ongoing psychological, physical, and/or sexual abuse as a child or adult).
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition that causes a person to experience a variety of symptoms that typically fall into one of two categories: ‘obsessions’ and/or ‘compulsions’.
