Everyone experiences some anxiety from time to time. In fact, some anxiety can help increase focus and improve performance. Occasional worries that do not impact our daily living are normal and manageable. When worry becomes excessive and difficult to control or is accompanied by panic attacks, it may be time to consult a mental health professional for assistance.
If you experience panic attacks, uncontrollable worry, difficulty sleeping, or frequently feel nervous or jittery, you may have an anxiety disorder. Treatment can help, and for many anxiety problems, therapy is a good place to start. Counselors can help you treat, cope, and manage your anxiety. The anxiety disorders differ considerably, so therapy should be tailored to your specific symptoms and concerns. The length of therapy will also depend on the type and severity of your anxiety disorder.
