Anxiety

It’s normal to feel anxious when you’re stressed or in danger. But if your worries and fears are overwhelming you anxiety can be a problem.

Most people feel anxious about certain situations, like being in debt or starting a new job. But those feelings should go away. If your anxiety continues when the difficult situation is over this might indicate that your anxiety is a problem.

If you are experiencing any stress, anxiety, panic attacks, or depression why not contact us for a free confidential chat, or better still why not attend our  Stress Wise Well-Being and Resilience self-help programme.

Depression

Certain stressful events and the meaning they have for us may contribute to depression. Some people are able to grieve after a bereavement without developing depression, but for others it can trigger an episode. And if different life events happen together it’s more likely you’ll become depressed. For example, you might feel low after an illness and then experience a traumatic event, such as bereavement, which brings on depression.

Depression is an illness caused by changes in our brain chemistry. The World Health Organisation says that depression is one of the most disabling disorders, and it affects one in five women and one in ten men in their lifetime. 

 Depression is a complex condition. It’s difficult to identify any single cause of it, and the causes can be different for different people. You can develop it for a whole range of different reasons. And you can also become depressed for no obvious reason. 

While being depressed isn’t something you can just ‘snap out’ of, but like anxiety it can be treated.  Many people who have depression never recognise their symptoms and so don’t get the help or support they need.

Psychotherapy is a powerful non-medicinal psychological intervention, in the treatment of  stress anxiety and depression. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), the specific psychological intervention that is effective in social phobias and panic disorders, aims at changing thinking patterns and finding ways of redefining or coming to terms with core beliefs behind certain fears.

Behavioural therapy, specifically desensitisation therapy, is effective for certain phobias where the person is gradually exposed to the feared situation while they are taught how to cope with and manage the resultant anxiety. Confronting fears in the safety of a therapeutic environment helps to dull people’s phobias, and gradually helps them put the fears – and their responses to them – into perspective.
