Therapy for Anxiety

Serving Adults & Adolescents in Calgary and Beyond

Everyone worries at times.

Whether we are afraid of things like heights or public speaking, or worry about the future, worries are a normal part of growing and learning. However, sometimes these worries become excessive and leave us feeling overwhelmed and out of control. Worries can  have a detrimental effect and start to interfere with our day-to-day functioning. We may avoid certain situations so that we do not experience the anxiety but end up limiting  ourselves from activities and the chance to have new experiences and learn new skills. 

Symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Constant worry 
  • Feeling on edge
  • Feelings of fear, panic, and uneasiness
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Poor memory 
  • Irritable 
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Emotional outbursts
  • Physical symptoms such as stomach aches, feeling nauseous, and headaches

 

When left untreated, worries lead to avoidance, missed school or work, emotional outbursts, and depression. It also interferes with our overall physical and emotional health. However, anxiety is the most treatable mental health disorder out there. You just need to know the right strategies.
