Am I anxious?

Of course you’re anxious. However, anxiety is likely to be playing a bigger part in your life than necessary if you find yourself:worrying too often;thinking too much about how things may go wrong;spinning the same thoughts over and over in your mind;avoiding situations that cause you discomfort;regularly feeling you might not be able to cope with daily challenges without becoming overwhelmed. Anxiety form the basis of other conditions, such as phobias, and often co-exists alongside conditions such as depression and compulsive disorders such as sex and porn addiction.

Because symptoms can vary dramatically from person to person, a GP visit is considered to be a good place to start. However if you would like to initially get some understanding of where you are at the assessment tool below can be helpful.

Different forms of anxiety that i treat:


Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

GAD : Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This is a disorder characterized by excessive, uncontrollable anxiety triggered by numerous and varying stimuli, rather than a singular stimulus. The anxiety can be exacerbated by the symptoms of the anxiety itself. Pay attention to symptoms such as:

  • Irritability
  • Edginess
  • Muscle tension
  • Muscle (particularly chest) aches
  • Tension headaches
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Fatigue

The vicious cycle of anxiety causing symptoms that cause further anxiety is, in part, why this disorder is so difficult to overcome or control.


Social Anxiety

Social anxiety disorder is an intense, persistent fear of being watched and judged by others. This fear can affect work, school, and other daily activities. It can even make it hard to make and keep friends.
