Dealing with ... Anxiety

 

Anxiety in itself is not a problem. There are times when we naturally become anxious. Symptoms of anxiety have a biological function and prepare us for what is often called the “fight or flight" situations. It's normal to feel anxious in many situations, such as taking a test, giving a speech, meeting new people for the first time. However normal anxiety subsides once you have completed the task or the event is over and often during it. Any perceived threat by the body and mind diminishes and levels of anxiety return to normal.

 

We all get anxious from time to time and often for good reasons. However Anxiety becomes a problem when it becomes excessive, when it seems that we cannot control worry or worry frequently about all sorts of things. It seems unremitting and there seems to be no escape from the apprehensions, irritability and restlessness that can result. Poor concentration, feelings of despondency and even depression can follow as the effects of physical anxiety and tension take a hold. Sleepless nights and thoughts going round and round are typical along with feelings of panic and increased stress these are all signs that Anxiety has got out of control.

 

How EDA can help...................

At EDA we recognise that Anxiety can take over your life and affect both self esteem and self confidence. But there are many ways to manage Anxiety including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) - which is helpful to overcome negative or unhelpful feelings or recurring unhelpful thoughts that increase anxiety. In addition Relaxation skills and Mindfulness are also helpful in reducing and managing anxiety.
A combination of several techniques can be taught including brief relaxation, visualisation imagery, relaxation skills, problem solving skills, sleep hygiene, personalised self care plans and help to develop an anti-anxiety lifestyle.
