We all know what anxiety feels like. It’s that heart-pounding, pit-in-the-stomach feeling that can be painful and paralyzing when you’re faced with a problem, uncertainty or a major life event.
For most people, these feelings disappear once the issue has passed. For others, the anxiety does not go away. Indeed, it can often get worse and interfere with daily activities, including work, school and relationships. At this level, it is an anxiety disorder and anxiety counseling can help.
Do I Need Anxiety Counseling?
Anxiety can have a variety of effects, ranging from mild to troublesome to devastating. Your mind may be flooded by fear, turmoil, obsession, exasperation – – to the point of being in physical pain. If these feelings or symptoms come on suddenly and strongly, it may can be a sign that you’re having a panic attack.
