Anxiety Treatment In London
We all feel anxious from time to time. I’m sure you’ve experienced anxiety before an exam or a first date, for example. In those contexts, it is a normal, healthy response to stress in our environment, and nothing to worry about.
But for some people, it can take over their lives. They find that they just can’t stop worrying, and spend all their time in a state of heightened stress. This can have profound repercussions for their mental and physical health and well-being. They feel profoundly distressed much of the time and can develop a range of physical symptoms, from gastro-intestinal distress to skin problems.
The various forms anxiety takes
If, like many people, you have generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), you feel anxious about lots of things, most of the time, rather than worrying about one specific event. You feel worried, you find it hard to concentrate and sleep, and your appetite might be affected.
If you have panic disorder, you suffer from periodic bouts of debilitating panic, even when there’s nothing to worry about at all. You may find that you start to panic about when the next panic attack is going to come, creating a vicious circle. You may also suffer from physical symptoms, including dizziness, sweating, heart palpitations and more. We offer several videos that can help you overcome anxiety disorders.
Some people suffer from very specific types of anxiety, including that of a particular thing or situation, like driving, spiders, or enclosed spaces. This sort of disorder is known as a simple phobia. Anxiety about health can also be extremely problematic.
Other forms include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The former involves stress resulting from a traumatic experience that continues even a long time afterwards, and OCD involves obsessive thoughts and behaviours.
If you suffer from an anxiety disorder, you will be relieved to know that there are treatments, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and eye movement desensitisation reprocessing (EMDR), with a focus on developing positive thinking, acquiring mindfulness, and strategies to help contain and manage the problem. While medication can help in the short term, for long term relief psychological therapy can be hugely rewarding. If you need to see a psychiatrist, that’s possible too.
Commonly prescribed drugs for are anti-anxiety medications and they are prescribed for a short time to relieve anxiety. If you want to know how much the medications will cost you, you can call any pharmacy and ask the price. Also if you want to opt for an affordable one you can let our psychiatrist know this and they will prescribe the most affordable option that will be most beneficial for you.
