Anxiety and Stress Therapy
I specialise in the management and treatment of stress and anxiety and as is widely accepted, stress affects us all. But while some stress can be positive, too much stress can wear you down and make you sick, both mentally and physically.
Constant stress can cause or aggravate health problems. Anxiety can happen for a wide variety of reasons or may seem to pop up out of nowhere. In this case where the cause is not clear to you, talking to a therapist who is more familiar with common triggers of anxiety may be helpful.
Causes and Symptoms
Some of the common causes of anxiety and stress are ongoing stress are family or home pressures, stress from particular situations such as losing your job or home, experiencing childhood abuse which could be physical, psychological or sexual, witnessing or being involved in a traumatic event, drug use alcoholism and self-harm.
Anxiety can manifest as physical symptoms- a racing heart, sweating, fast, shallow breathing, chest pains, dizziness, headaches, upset stomach, shaking, dry mouth and sleep problems. Psychological symptoms include: feeling tense, becoming irritated/angry quickly, feeling out of control and detached from your surroundings, worrying constantly and difficulty concentrating.
