Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) 

GAD is a condition that causes you to feel anxious about a wide range of situations and issues, rather than one specific event. Actually, people tend to feel anxious all the time. People often struggle to remember the last time they felt relaxed.

GAD can cause both psychological and physical symptoms and both of these are uncomfortable and cause even more anxiety.


The description of GAD within the medical profession concludes that it is anxiety that has no exact cause and the list of physical symptoms is the same as stress, anxiety, depression and a mixture of them all.  It also seems to cover those who are generally nervous and then comes the factor of differing degrees of symptoms.


If you have GAD, it may not always be clear what you're feeling anxious about. Not knowing what triggers your anxiety can intensify it and you may start to worry that there's no solution.  The NHS can offer you various treatments such as CBT, medication and suggest some self help that might help you manage GAD. 


In Psychotherapy with me, I offer long term private psychotherapeutic counselling which aims to address root causes of anxiety disorder and balance the mind, emotions and thinking patterns with the goal being what you would consider a normal level of anxiety.
