anxiety

Many times one feels a sense of anxiety when confronted with a new situation –the unknown that we must affront. Some examples include a new job, an important exam, a new school etc. Anxiety is a basic and adaptative psychobiological emotion as a response to a new challenge or threat, present or future.

Patients commonly seek professional help when anxiety presents as a sorrowful crisis or panic attacks. When one feels restless, insecure, and afraid, preoccupations arise and one develops a constant state of alert. This is when anxiety transforms into prolonged suffering and an uncomfortable state with physical consequences such as difficulty breathing, tachycardia, dizziness, profuse perspiration, difficulty sleeping etc. Commonly, once a person has undergone a crisis, they fear that another crisis might soon recur, without having the proper tools to endure it.

Anxiety is a condition felt as a chaotic rush that, from a psychological and somatic perspective, is felt like an overwhelming experience that one cannot make sense of.

This is why together we work by way of thorough, comprehensive communication and psychoeducational techniques in order to asses the nature of what is occurring and learn exercises and psychological training to confront present and help prevent future crisis.
