Anxiety is an experience that can leave an individual feeling overwhelmed, stressed or nervous, and can occur in specific or general situations. Anxiety usually shows itself in physiological ways, such as when you feel your heart racing, or your start feeling warm, sweaty or shaky. Anxiety also shows itself psychologically through unreasonable or irrational thoughts. Therapy can help in recognizing your anxiety and learning self-regulation to manage the symptoms. Therapy can also help in learning how to challenge the thought processes that all too often make the symptoms worse and make anxiety so difficult to overcome on your own.
