Anxiety Counseling Mokena

Anxiety is a common problem. For some, it’s nervousness that happens in certain situations. For others, the symptoms are prolonged and it becomes a long-term mental health disorder that interferes with everyday life. No matter your exact circumstances, you can find relief from your worries through anxiety counseling. Mokena therapists at Counseling Works are here to help you through your challenges. 

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety?

Symptoms of anxiety vary since everyone has a different experience. Diagnosis depends on the individual’s personality and other mental health conditions they may have that may explain their symptoms. Anxiety often causes intrusive thoughts, making it difficult to concentrate. A person with anxiety may feel restless, and it’s common to also have depression

In many cases, anxiety causes physical health issues alongside psychological symptoms. You might experience: 

  • Trembling or shaking
  • Sweating
  • Pounding or racing heart
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Trouble breathing

Over time, anxiety can increase the risk of certain health complications, such as digestive issues. Sudden, severe anxiety may indicate a panic attack. 

Living With Anxiety

Anxiety affects people differently. Even if you have different symptoms than someone else, that doesn’t mean you have it “easier.” Your feelings are valid and worthy of attention alongside a therapist. Some people with anxiety may withdraw due to overwhelming symptoms, while others continue to appear outgoing and confident from the outside. Living with anxiety is a highly individual experience, and our counselors recognize this. 

Anxiety can trigger a flight or fight response. For some, they may avoid situations that bring about nervous feelings. Those who have a “fight” response may seem confrontational and have nervous tics. These symptoms can make it difficult to perform in school, work or even complete day-to-day tasks. If you aren’t sure whether you are experiencing anxiety, you should talk to a licensed therapist who can assess your symptoms.
