anxiety counselling Surrey

If you’re struggling with anxiety, you may have many questions that you want answered, such as whether or not anxiety is normal, and if your level of anxiety falls under the normal boundaries.

They have been empowering couples, families and individuals for over 20 years with their commitment to healing and wholeness provided by their professional clinicians.
 
While everyone experiences anxiety from time to time, some levels are considered normal, such as how you feel on the first day at school, in anticipation of an upcoming test or even during a job interview. This type of anxiety is considered normal, providing it does not interfere with your achievement of goals or negatively impact your life or relationships. Excessive anxiety is a problem though, and can cause significant distress.
 
Since anxiety can look different to different people, it’s important to be able to recognize some of the more common anxiety symptoms, which include:
– Panic attacks with or without worry of subsequent attacks
– Fear of being placed in certain situations or encountering things, such as standing in crowds, line-ups, on bridges, buses, spiders, elevators, snakes, etc.
– Worry about being watched in social situations with a fear of a negative evaluation by others
– Excessive, uncontrollable worry about work, school, the future, health, family, etc.
– Unwanted, intrusive thoughts that are difficult to manage, or the need to perform ritualistic or repeated behaviors in order to reduce the anxiety
– Reliving a fearful or traumatic event, causing tension, discomfort or physical pain
 
In order to make a good determination of whether you have a problem with anxiety, ask yourself
– How often am I experiencing these bouts of anxiety?
– Am I having more difficulty coping with my symptoms alone?
– Am I having trouble functioning in my daily life?
 
Family Hope in Surrey can help you with answering these questions and discerning whether you have other questions that need answers.
