What is anxiety?

Anxiety is the mind and body's response to something that feels stressful, new, or unsafe. This can manifest as feelings of uncertainty, panic, fear, or negative thoughts.

Occasional anxiety can be normal and healthy. However, persistent anxiety and anxiety in situations where it is not helpful can be a detriment to your mental health. Anxiety that interferes with everyday life is often a sign of an anxiety disorder.

Excessive anxiety can impact your quality of life, but proven methods for addressing this issue are available to you. Counselling services for anxiety empower you to address the issue, make positive changes, and create treatments to help reduce anxiety.

Symptoms of anxiety

Experiencing anxiety can mean intense and persistent worry and unexpected anxiety attacks. These are sudden feelings of intense fear and panic. Understandably, these symptoms can seriously affect your mental health.

Without treatment, anxiety can be a persistent issue. High anxiety can make it difficult to go to work, spend time with friends, loved ones, and enjoy your life.

If you’re struggling with anxiety you’re not alone. You deserve and have access to counselling therapy for anxiety that can help soothe these symptoms.

What are some common anxiety coping techniques?

Anxiety can be calmed and managed in the short term through relaxation techniques. Examples include meditation or deep breathing to calm the body and mind. Journaling or calling a friend or family member to talk through the feeling can also help. 

Anxiety can also be managed long-term by instilling the right habits. That includes fueling the body properly with nutricious foods and getting enough sleep. All of these practices can help with emotional regulation and managing anxiety.

While these actions are undoubtedly positive, they may not be enough to manage anxiety by themselves. Speaking to a counsellor for additional support, or asking your doctor about anxiety medications are great additional options.
