What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a natural emotional response characterized by feelings of excessive worry, apprehension, and unease. It can manifest as physical symptoms, such as increased heart rate and restlessness, as well as cognitive symptoms, like intrusive thoughts and difficulty concentrating or making decisions. In therapy, anxiety is explored with the aim of understanding its underlying causes, managing its effects, and developing strategies to navigate and reduce its impact on daily functioning.

When you receive treatment for anxiety at The Hardy Clinic you may:

  1. Work collaboratively with your therapist to identify the underlying causes of your experience with anxiety.
  2. Develop insights into unhelpful and harmful thought patterns and triggers.
  3. Engage with evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), to learn practical strategies to reframe negative thoughts, confront fears, and practice relaxation.
  4. Encounter a safe space for you to express your emotions openly, reducing feelings of isolation and promoting emotional regulation.
  5. Become equipped with the tools and coping skills to alleviate the impact of anxiety.

You would benefit from this service if:

  1. You are consistently experiencing feelings of worry, dread, or restlessness.
  2. You naturally resort to envisioning the worst-case scenario.
  3. You are constantly worried about what other people think of you, or have an irrational fear of embarrassing yourself in front of others.
  4. You feel a sense of anxiety at the thought of social gatherings or interacting with others.
  5. You are hyper-aware of your thoughts or presence in public spaces.
  6. Minor physical sensations can escalate into anxiety, causing you to become overly focused on potential health issues, seeking reassurance from medical professionals or spending excessive time researching symptoms online.
