Anxiety is one the most commonly experienced symptoms of individuals seeking counseling. It has been estimated that about twenty percent of individuals have a diagnosable anxiety disorder. This debilitating condition can cause added stress to a person’s everyday life and may hinder them from living life to the fullest. For many people, anxiety feels like a general sense of uneasiness and apprehension. Some examples include:
Anxiety surrounding social situations
Performance anxiety, such as taking a test or participating in a sporting event
Being in a large crowd or waiting in line
Phobias such as fear of spiders or heights
If left untreated, anxiety can lead to difficulties including, but not limited to, insomnia, high blood pressure, poor grades, feeling worried about being in public, inhibited daily functioning, or loss of relationships.
