Stop worrying and overcome your fears

Everyone has feelings of anxiety or stress at some point in their life, but for some, these worries or fears are more constant and can negatively affect their daily lives.

Here are some of the key psychological, physical, and social indicators of anxiety:


  • Irrational and excessive fear unable to control worrying

  • Trouble relaxing

  • Difficulty managing daily tasks

  • Anxious thoughts, predictions, or beliefs

  • Avoidance of feared situations or stimuli

  • Easily annoyed or irritable

  • Feeling overwhelmed regularly

  • Feeling nervous, anxious, or on edge

  • Feeling afraid as if something awful might happen

  • Feeling down or depressed (depression is often linked to bouts of anxiety - after all, experiencing any number of these symptoms for a duration of time can naturally lead to symptoms of depression)

  • Being fidgety or restless

  • Heart palpitations or accelerated heart rate

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Difficulty sleeping/feeling fatigued

  • Muscle tension and aches

  • Upset stomach (stomach pain, constipation, or other GI distress)

  • Excessive sweating/flushed appearance

  • Easily startled or on edge

  • Difficulty swallowing or tightness in the throat (choking)

Here are some ways therapy can help people with anxiety: 

  • Understand how your specific form of anxiety present is impacting your daily life, and learn your unique early alert cues

  • Explore how negative thoughts contribute to anxiety and learn to challenge and replace these with alternative thoughts

  • Examine how you behave and react in anxiety triggering situations

  • Learn relaxation skills, mindfulness and being present as tools to work through anxiety

  • Create an anxiety management toolkit based on what works best for you to cope with any future possible stressors
