Feeling stressed? You aren’t alone. Anxiety is a very common condition that affects an estimated 40 million American adults. If life seems to be spiraling out of control, speak to our Frankfort anxiety therapist at Counseling Works. We are here to guide you as you learn to cope with your thoughts.
Anxiety is a physiological response to danger that’s meant to protect us. The body prepares itself to flee or fight a foe by sending a hormone, adrenaline, into the bloodstream. You may experience:
In addition to physical symptoms, people with anxiety usually have intense emotions, too. You may feel overwhelming fear, irritability, sadness, insecurity and more. While it’s normal to feel nervous every now and then, constantly feeling overwhelmed is a sign that you may have an anxiety disorder. People without anxiety are typically able to function without letting their worries consume them. Conversely, anxiety can be debilitating, especially if you experience frequent panic attacks. Usually, panic attacks are triggered by certain situations, but they also happen out of the blue. Frequent, sudden panic attacks may indicate a panic disorder or PTSD.
If anxiety has made you feel like a spectator in your own life, speaking with a therapist is worthwhile. Therapy is effective because we teach you coping mechanisms to condition your mind and body to react differently to stress. Over time, you can learn to manage your stress response and use grounding exercises to restore your confidence and control.
While anxiety may feel overwhelming, you can reclaim your life with the help of our therapists.
