understanding Anxiety

What is Anxiety, and Is It Normal to Feel Anxious?

Anxiety is a feeling of uneasiness, worry, or fear that everyone experiences at various points in their life. People may feel anxious before an exam, a job interview, or during significant life transitions. It is a normal stress reaction that alerts us to potentially harmful or stressful situations. However, when anxiety affects daily functioning, relationships, or performance at work or school, it may indicate an Anxiety Disorder. A report said that about 10% of the population in Singapore suffers from anxiety and depressive disorders. Seeking anxiety counselling in Singapore can help you understand and manage these feelings. 

 

What Are the Symptoms of an Anxiety Disorder?

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorder can include excessive worry, difficulty concentrating, increased irritability, restlessness, feeling hyper-vigilant or "on-edge," difficulty resting, including problems falling or staying asleep, and constant nightmares about events or situations that trigger anxiety. If you experience these symptoms persistently, it might be advisable to seek professional anxiety counselling to address these concerns effectively.​

What Caused Anxiety?

Causes of anxiety are varied and can include chemical imbalances in the brain, environmental changes, childhood trauma, bullying, public shaming, harsh criticism, and fears of judgment or abandonment. Understanding the cause of your anxiety is a crucial step towards managing it effectively through anxiety therapy in Singapore.

What Are the Different Types of Anxiety Disorders?

There are several types of anxiety disorders, including Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, and Social Anxiety (Social Phobia). Each type has specific characteristics, such as persistent worry across various situations (GAD), sudden and unexpected panic attacks (Panic Disorder), and intense fear of being watched or judged (Social Anxiety). Professional anxiety counselling can help in identifying and treating the specific type of anxiety disorder.
