Anxiety is a normal human emotion which helps keep us safe. However, when anxiety is experienced too frequently or out of proportion to the events that are taking place, anxiety can become a disorder. Anxiety disorders significantly interfere with the way we function both in our personal and work lives.
The skilled psychologists at Bowen Hills Psychology can provide tools and techniques for treating anxiety and phobias effectively.
Our aim at Bowen Hills Psychology is to help an individual identify unhelpful thinking patterns and to make changes to thoughts and behaviours to help reduce anxiety and panic attacks.
Symptoms of anxiety can impact an individual physically, behaviourally and mentally. Some of the signs and symptoms include:
- Trouble breathing, tight chest
- Restlessness or agitation
- Sweating, dizziness or fainting
- Hypervigilance (being on the alert for danger)
- Racing thoughts/ Unwanted thoughts
- Feeling you are “losing control”
- Tunnel vision
