Panic and anxiety disorders

For people suffering from anxiety the main symptom is the almost constant presence of worry or tension, even when there is little or no cause. Worries seem to float from one problem to another, such as family or relationship problems, work issues, money, health, and other problems.

Even when aware that their worries or fears are stronger than needed, a person with anxiety and panic still has difficulty controlling them.

Other symptoms include:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Problems falling or staying asleep, and sleep that is often restless and unsatisfying
  • Restlessness, and often becoming startled very easily

Along with the worries and anxieties, a number of physical symptoms may also be present, including muscle tension (shakiness, headaches) and stomach problems, such as nausea or diarrhoea.

Although the symptoms of anxiety appear universal the reality is that the difficulties a person experiences, (what you are afraid of and what makes you panic) these are like you’re fingerprints they are unique to you. It is in these finer details that the answer to your difficulties lies. I have worked for many years with people suffering from anxiety and panic and the way forward in psychotherapy has to be a combination of

  • Helping you to learn ways to reduce anxiety and panic (Addressing the immediate symptoms)
  • detailed attention to exactly what in particular activates the your panic response ( its fingerprints)
  • releasing tied up energy and emotions
  • understanding how isolation and silence help anxiety and panic to persist
