Generalised Anxiety Disorder – what is it?generalised anxiety disorder treatment london

Everybody suffers from anxiety at sometimes in their lives and for many people, it is a daily occurence. However, sufferers of GAD feel in a near constant state of anxiety or stress which will interfere with many areas of their life. They experience excessive anxiety and worry about events or activities most days of the week for at least six months.

People with GAD feel out of control of their thinking – even though they may appreciate that their anxiety is more intense than the situation warrants. They can’t relax, startle easily, and have difficulty concentrating. Often they have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep. Physical symptoms that often accompany general anxiety disorder include palpitations, fatigue, Irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, muscle tension, shaking, twitching, irritability, sweating, nausea or having to go to the bathroom often.

Causes of Generalised Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety does not just happen to us – it doesn’t appear out of the blue, even though that’s how it may seem. Negative, stressful thoughts are generated by unhelpful belief systems, which is why we can be quite unaware of them and the damage they do. Sufferers of GAD are constantly occupying their minds with negative, catastrophic thoughts, either by worrying about situations that may occur (‘anticipatory anxiety’) or worrying that they don’t have the ability to cope with their current situation, eg, at work, with friends, etc (‘real time anxiety’).

At the very heart of GAD lies a lack of self belief: sufferers lack of belief in themselves and their ability to cope, which is why they spend a lot of time doubting themselves, berating themselves and planning for worst case scenarios. Another major component of GAD is social anxiety – feeling judged and worried about how others may perceive them. This also stems for self esteem issues: when we feel confident in our own skin, we feel confident around others.

How The Thrive Programme differs from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Thrive is entirely different to techniques such as NLP or CBT, even if on the surface they may sound similar.

Thrive doesn’t just focus upon giving a person some isolated insights, tools and techniques to cope with a symptom or problem. These approaches are ‘fire-fighting’ – trying to control or reduce the anxiety AFTER we have already created it by our thinking. Often people tire quickly of having to maintain this level of effort of fending of negative thoughts. The Thrive Programme is about Thriving and overcoming symptoms is just a part of that.  It is about creating strong psychological foundations (eg, good self esteem) so that we are not creating anxiety. You don’t need to fire-fight if you are not setting fires in the first place.

The Thrive Programme is a comprehensive training course, which provides people with unique self-insights that enables them to develop the beliefs, resources and motivation to build resilience and make positive changes across all areas of their lives. It is of limited value teaching you any sort of ‘positive thinking’ or CBT or NLP techniques unless you understand the component parts of your thinking and beliefs that continue to create the anxiety. If you are not able to understand or alter the driving forces behind your symptoms or anxiety, it can feel as though you are ‘treading water’ trying to fend off negative thoughts.
