Psychosomatic Disorders

Psychosomatic disorders are when physical conditions seem to be happenning due to a person's own thinking or stress responses. 

In normal incidences, some conditions Irritable Bowel or skin problems are made worse with stress and anxiety and during times of anxiety or depression, someone may not take care of themselves or eat properly and this can cause some additional physical problems too. 

In some cases, health anxiety can be causing a health problem in itself and sometimes conditions can appear to be psychosomatic and yet the person really feels they have no control at all about what is going on.
In counselling and Psychotherapy, depending on what is going on for a person, the aim is to balance the mind and body and reduce of manage conditions that are happenning.
