What is anxiety?

Anxiety is the body’s normal response to a stressful or threatening situation. Normal levels of anxiety can help motivate people and keep them safe. However when anxiety persists for months it can interfere with daily life due to symptoms such as sweating, a rapid heartbeat, chest or stomach pains and difficulty sleeping or concentrating. Some people get nervous or panic under specific circumstances, such as social situations, while others find themselves worrying about everything.

The psychologist will then help you develop methods to manage and reduce your stress and anxiety levels.
