Could you be suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder?

It’s perfectly normal to feel anxious from time to time. Most of us experience anxiety around important events, such as a job interview. So long as we only experience anxiety when we “should” it’s just one of those things we have to deal with.

But some people find themselves feeling anxious all the time, or much of the time. They just can’t stop worrying and experiencing negative feelings and thoughts – and this can lead to serious repercussions for them. Feeling stressed all the time isn’t good for mental or physical health.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder

While anxiety can be a feature of a number of psychological conditions, many people suffer from a condition known as Generalised Anxiety Disorder, which is a long-term problem that can lead to the sufferer experiencing anxiety around a wide range of aspects of their daily lives, contributing to a sense of constant worry, trouble sleeping well, difficulties in getting along with the important people in their lives, and even physical symptoms like dizziness, sweating and headaches.  Different people can get Generalised Anxiety Disorder for various reasons, from having had a traumatic childhood to an imbalance in their brain’s chemicals. Often, however, we just don’t know why. Whatever the reason, it can be a very upsetting and debilitating experience.

Do You Need help?

If you feel that your levels of anxiety are seriously affecting your quality of life, it might be time to ask for help. The good news is that there are lots of options for treatment. One is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is a practical approach that works by helping you to deal more positively with the things that trigger your anxiety, and learning new behavioural patterns that can break the cycle of negative feelings, thoughts and reactions, that keeps you feeling anxious. For some people, medication can help, especially a type of anti-depressant called a “selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor”. This helps to stop your brain from defaulting to anxiety mode every time you experience one of the triggers to feeling anxious. A therapist can also recommend a range of self-help techniques that you can use on your own towards managing your anxiety more effectively.

Don’t be Afraid to Seek Support

Realising that you might need help for Generalised Anxiety Disorder is a sign of strength, not weakness! This rather common condition (affecting around one in twenty-five people in the UK) can blight lives – but there are lots of options to explore, and many ways to journey back to a happier existence.

Very thorough and attentive

I have attended and been seen by Dr Lincht. The service I had was excellent, she was able to give me a quick call back when I requested, when I was still making inquiries and and after the appointment she made herself available to answer my concerns. I would definitely recommend your company to my friends and family. Regards Phumla

I've just started consultation with Vjosa Hyseni and my initial call and subsequent session with her have been quite insightful and helpful. Vjosa has an in depth knowledge of her field as well as very warm and calming persona which really helps when discussing very personal and sensitive issues. A very positive experience all round.

I found my therapy very interesting and informing. It helped me to acknowledge things I hadn't done before. I'm really glad that I went and believe it will help me in the future

Very helpful team, quick to respond and knowledgeable.
