Anxiety treatment at The Bay

Anxiety is a mental health disorder whereby an individual experiences extreme worrisome thoughts and lives in an often relentless state of intense dread, fear and catastrophe. Along with the psychological components, anxiety can affect the entire ‘being’ of a person, interrupting not just thought processes, but sleep, well being and relationships.

Behavioral and physical symptoms, such as heart palpitations, shortness of breath, obsessive or compulsive behaviors and avoidance of certain people, places, and things are very common for those suffering with this disorder.

How do I know if I have Anxiety?

  • You second guess and overthink your thoughts and actions
  • You often feel apprehensive, nervous, and uneasy
  • You are fatigued and even feel physically unwell and think that something is wrong with your health
  • You are unable to relax and feel calm or settled
  • Your mind is either racing, or a complete blank
  • You are irritable, tense and ‘on edge’
  • You experience a dry mouth, headaches, sweating or shaking
  • You worry excessively and imagine negative outcomes
  • You have compulsive behaviors that you use in the hope of reducing negative events or feelings of anxiety

Occasional anxiety, while uncomfortable, is a natural and useful part of life – it is your mind’s way of alerting you to potential risks and giving your body the extra energy charge it may require to assess the situation and stay safe. When the alert switch stays on when it is not needed, and when it frequently escalates to a panicked feeling, anxiety becomes problematic.

There are different kinds of anxiety disorders: Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, and Social Anxiety. Anxiety can manifest as a generalised, low-grade tension that is present most of the time, it can involve phobias, can be linked with depression, and it is also a common symptom of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
