What is an Anxiety Disorder?
Anxiety is a general term for a number of related disorders that cause excessive worrying, fear, nervousness and apprehension. Anxiety affects how you think, feel and behave and can produce real physical symptoms.
Someone experiencing panic and anxiety is feeling the effects of the ‘fight or flight’ response. The fight or flight response is our bodies natural response to a perceived threat, which may be physical or social in nature. When it is activated, hormones are released into the body to enable us to either deal with or escape from the dangerous situation.
The effects of the fight or flight response include an increase in our heart rate to pump blood faster to the lungs, muscles and brain. We breathe more rapidly to increase our oxygen levels, our muscles tense ready for action and many functions not necessary for fighting or escaping, such as digestion or reproduction, slow or stop.
It is important to realise that what we think about can actually activate the fight or flight response. Our minds and bodies can’t tell the difference between the thoughts about a situation and the situation itself. Therefore by simply thinking, worrying or ‘what if’-ing about something you are actually activating the fight or flight response in exactly the same way as if you were actually experiencing it in reality.
Anxiety can occur in many situations and is very common when we feel unsafe, or when we are being judged or under pressure to perform. Such as when public speaking, giving a wedding speech, a presentation at work, during job interviews, or in social situations. Any situation with a perceived threat can provoke anxiety. It is worth noting that the perceived threat may be physical or psychological in nature. For example people will react just as strongly to potential loss of dignity, loss of status, loss of respect, or shame, as they would to a physical threat.
Due to the way anxiety functions, it is almost impossible to fight it head on. You’ve probably already tried that and failed miserably. In fact the more you fight and try to control the anxiety, the worse it gets! I wonder if you could you imagine just how useful it would be for you to learn new and different ways to think and react so that your fears just faded away and no longer seemed a problem?
When you are committed to make the inner changes you need to control your anxiety, simply phone me on 0161 881 4333 to make an appointment now.
There are several different anxiety disorders and people may experience symptoms of more than one at the same time, disorders such as:
- Generalised Anxiety Disorder
- Panic Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Social Anxiety
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Specific Phobias
- Somatoform Disorder AKA Hypochondria
People with an anxiety disorder can also experience a number of different symptoms as a result of their disorder. It is very important for you to discuss your symptoms with your doctor so that a full medical assessment can be made. Do not self diagnose.
Symptoms of anxiety may include:
Tightening of the throat
Frequent need to urinate
Nausea and/or vomiting
Fear of embarrassment
Pins and needles
Fear of going insane
Lack of concentration
Ice cold feeling
Fear of losing control
Fear of having a heart attack
Feeling detached from body
Loss of feelings and/or libido
Short term memory loss
Hot prickly feeling
Fear of making a fool of self
Fear of dying
Sensitivity to light/sound
PLEASE NOTE: If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms then get them checked out by a doctor right away. Panic attacks and anxiety can mimic a number of physical conditions, and it is important for you to discuss your symptoms with your doctor.
The Anxiety Treatment in Manchester
The treatment is available at the Manchester Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy practice and is highly tailored to each persons requirements, so the exact form of treatment and number of sessions will vary from person to person. However for very specific anxieties, significant improvements can often be made in as little as 8 to 12 one hour sessions of intensive short-term therapy. For more deep rooted or complex problems, longer term therapy may be required, and this is charged at a reduced rate. For more information give me a call at the Manchester clinic on 0161 881 4333, request a call back, or send me an email.
