Everyone feels worried or stressed from time to time. Usually, those feelings fade when a stressful situation has passed. However, some people experience overwhelming feelings of worry, for no particular reason, that can make it difficult to cope with daily life. This is called anxiety.
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia, affecting around one in every four people.
Anxiety is a necessary reaction. It is part of everyday life. It is an important cue to tell you when something is wrong and when you may need to take action. Anxiety is very helpful for you to tackle life’s challenges. It can improve performance – as long as it does not exceed an ‘optimum range’. If too high, your anxiety can impede your performance. During group therapy we discuss and help you ‘Understand your experiences of Anxiety’ as well as develop techniques to manage these unwanted symptoms.
