Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Everyone has feelings of anxiety at some point in their life. For example, you may feel worried and anxious about sitting an exam, or having a medical test or job interview.

During times like these, feeling anxious can be perfectly normal.

Anxiety becomes a problem when you find it hard to control your worries. Your feelings and symptoms of anxiety can become more constant and may often affect your daily functioning.

It’s important to note that anxiety and depression often come together. When you get anxious, you tend to have this pervasive thinking about some worry or problem. You feel bad about it. Then you feel like you have failed. You move to depression. One can easily trigger the other, with anxiety often preceding depression. Treatment for anxiety should not be delayed. If not caught in time, depression may find the door wide open for moving in and setting up house.

The good news is – therapy has proven to be an effective method to take control of your anxiety and depression.

I will assist you in learning new coping skills and finding serenity and happiness you have been looking for.
