Generalised Anxiety Disorder – Do you feel anxious most of the time?
So, Christmas has been and gone, and there’s no denying that it can be a stressful time of year for some people. However, as the party season draws to a close and life gets back to its normal routine, there are many people whose anxiety levels remain high. Sufferers of Generalised Anxiety Disorder experience excessive amounts of anxiety about a number of aspects of life, such as work, social relationships, or financial matters. These high levels of anxiety will persist for at least six months. It’s also fairly common – as many as 1 in 25 people suffer from GAD, including children.
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. 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.

My panic attacks started at the age of 24. Having been on antidepressants for 10 years and it taking me three years to come off of them, you can imagine my despair when my dear father passed away suddenly last year and the panic and anxiety started to resurface again. My life became somewhat of a daily struggle with a list of anxiety symptons as long as my arm…I can’t thank you enough Cara for your support and understanding and I’m now enjoying life again WITHOUT antidepressants which I never thought possible. I really can’t recommend this therapy enough
