Anxiety Treatment

If you suffer from an anxiety disorder, firstly remember you are not alone. One in six Australians are currently experiencing depression or anxiety. 17% of Australians (according to stats. Beyond Blue)  between 16-85 have experienced an anxiety disorder in the past 12 months. 

There are many services available to you and healthcare professionals who are here to support you and give you tools that can assist with the management of your anxiety. Although only ⅓ of people who suffer with anxiety seek treatment despite it being able to be treated. 

According to a 2007 ADAA survey, 36% of people with an anxiety disorder report experiencing symptoms for 10 or more years before seeking help.

Which anxiety treatments will work for you depend on you, what type of anxiety disorder you have, and how severe it is.
Mild anxiety may be helped by making lifestyle changes, whereas more severe cases may require medicine.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. 

When we feel under pressure or stressed by a situation its a common response for us to feel anxious. However those feelings usually pass after the ‘stressor’ is removed. 

If anxiety doesn’t go away and is affecting your everyday life, then you might have an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are very common and are able to be treated. 

Anxiety is something as humans we should feel, it helps us to get through life safely and avoid danger. But unfortunately for some the feelings of anxiety won’t go away. People who suffer from anxiety can see situations much worse than they really are. 

Someone with anxiety may struggle to sleep, concentrate and go about their day ordinarily. People with anxiety often feel they need to avoid certain situations and sometimes may avoid going out altogether. 

Physical symptoms are common and include shortness of breath, trembling hands and a racing heart.
