Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), also known as chronic anxiety neurosis, impacts how a person frames their life. It is common for most people to experience an occasional degree of anxiety. In contrast, GAD is persistent and is present daily. People who suffer from GAD will experience excessive tension with little to no obvious. In some cases, when GAD is severe, physical symptoms can occur. Some symptoms include panic attacks, heart palpitations, digestive issues, and muscle soreness.
There are various treatment methods for GAD. When most people become aware of their anxiety symptoms, they try to improve their lifestyle choices. Improving one’s diet, exercise regime, and relationships can promote mindfulness. However, these can be hard to maintain long-term and may not work in more severe cases of anxiety. Depending on the persistence of anxiety, medication is often proscribed to numb the symptoms. In some cases, medication can result in side effects that exacerbate the anxiety. The most effective form of treatment is a combination of therapy with both methods outlined above.
Generalised Anxiety Disorder Counselling in Glasgow
If you suffer from anxiety, you will understand how difficult it is to seek help. When you are struggling with excessive worry or pains in your chest, you can feel like the weight of the world is on top of you. At Psychology Scotland, we acknowledge the challenges anxiety imposes, and we have prioritised creating a hospitable environment so you can start treatment without further worry. Our safe and inclusive therapy centre welcomes people from all walks of life. No matter how small your concern may seem, we are open to discussing a programme that can help you approach therapy with confidence. Whether you are new to therapy or have existing experience in counselling, you can be assured of a positive experience at Psychology Scotland.
Our professional therapists will guide you toward the completion of a programme that is tailored to your needs. After an initial consultation, we will match you with a course that has your interests at heart. All our therapeutic interventions are supported by strong empirical evidence and have been proven to work. Our aim at Psychology Scotland is to provide you with the skills to maintain an improved state of well-being long after you leave therapy. The skills you will learn will help you communicate better with your loved ones and live a life free of unnecessary worry.
Many forms of therapy help with GAD. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT) will teach you how to be proactive with your anxiety. The promotion of mindfulness will help you reason with yourself, and interventions like transactional analysis will give you a better understanding of how you interact with other people. Whatever course of therapy is recommended, we will be there every step of the way toward a positive outcome. Admitting you need help is often the hardest part of the journey, and at Psychology Scotland, we want you to start making better decisions for your future. If you struggle with any form of anxiety, then it is time to reach out and seek help.
