Anxiety is a natural experience that everyone goes through. When you are speaking in front of an audience, about to take a major examination, or weighing on a life-changing decision, it is natural to feel anxious and worry about uncertain things. However, un-checked anxiety patterns can disrupt a person’s normal lifestyle, and can even affect their physiological health. Acute or chronic anxiety can cause some individuals to lose sleep, feel restless and fatigued, and get easily irritated. It can also manifest in the form of physiological conditions, such as headache, backache, heart palpitations, excessive sweating and/or flushing, nausea and muscle tension. Common types of anxiety that people have received help with include generalized anxiety, social anxiety / social phobia, other types of phobias, performance anxiety, and panic attacks or panic disorder. For people impacted by anxiety, anxiety counselling can help improve the quality of their life by increasing the ability to manage and cope with their condition in the short term, and gain increased regulation and capacity in the long term.
