What is Anxiety?

What is Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety is disproportionate worry.

Everyone has some anxiety. It helps us to assess risks.

However, sometimes the brain becomes too sensitive to those risks.

It can create anxiety disorder, a mental health wellbeing issue.

In the UK, around 6% of people are medically diagnosed with a general anxiety disorder.

Anxiety can be triggered deep within the brain, beyond the direct control of the conscious mind.

Anxiety can make it hard to think clearly and can be very overwhelming. It can cause insomnia.

That part of the brain is also closely connect to the body, and people suffering from anxiety often suffer from physical symptoms such as sweating, shaking, pain or IBS (going to the toilet more than normal).

The feeling of fear can be intense and debilitating.
