- What is Generalized Anxiety?
In my practice I often see people who worry a lot. They worry about finances, health, children, you name it and they have a worry for it. Sometimes, these worries are natural and understandable, other times they are not. Sometimes, these thoughts are overwhelming and people feel as though their thoughts are racing and they are playing catch up. Other times people report that there is a vague feeling of things that can go wrong.
2. What is Panic Attack?
Symptoms of anxiety attack or panic attack include palpitations, pounding heart, sweaty palms, chest pain, nausea,shortness of breath and many more. The panic attack can last for a few seconds or aso and people may also report fear of dying or fear of ‘losing it.
3. What is a phobia?
A phobia is anxiety attached to a specific event , place or situation. Some people are afraid of heights, elevator, closed spaces etc. People can also develop phobia for dogs, spiders or any number of objects. When people start to avoid the specific place , situation or experience and it interferes with their life, then it is called a phobia.
4. What is the treatment I offer?
Cognitive behavior therapy has been shown to be very effective for Generalized anxiety, phobias and panic attacks. Using Mindfulness based therapy is also very helpful in coping with Anxiety.
