Anxiety comes in many forms. Maybe you have panic attacks, social anxiety, OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder) or you just worry all the time. There are effective treatments for anxiety.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the treatment for anxiety of choice for most of the disorders. CBT can also teach you many anxiety and stress management techniques. My CBT curriculum that I’ve put together over the past ten years has helped many people conquer their panic attacks, social anxiety and general tendency to worry all the time; others have substantially reduced their symptoms of OCD and PTSD. Psychodynamic therapy, talking things through, is also helpful for some of the anxiety disorders, especially PTSD. Stress counseling will help you get a plan of action and put it in motion.
Symptoms of a panic attack may include:
Pounding or racing heart
Trembling or shaking
Shortness of breath or a feeling of choking
Chest pain or stomach nausea
Dizziness or lightheadedness
Feeling like you are in a big bad dream
Feeling like you are outside yourself, watching yourself
Fear of losing control or going crazy
Fear of dying
Numbness or tingling
Chills or hot flushes
Symptoms of OCD include either:
Obsessions – recurrent or persistent thoughts, impulses or images that are more than extreme worry over real-life problems. The obsessions interfere with having a normal life. You probably recognize that the obsessions are excessive and unreasonable.
Compulsions – Repetitive physical or mental actions that you feel driven to perform, usually according to very rigid rules. You may have rituals that you have to perform. You may experience severe anxiety if you do not perform your compulsions. The compulsions interfere with having a normal life. You probably recognize that the compulsions are excessive and unreasonable. Get the stress counseling you need today!
