What is anxiety?
Anxiety is a normal emotion, we all experience it from time to time but when it starts to become a feature of our lives something needs to be done. Excessive anxiety and frequent worry is a serious problem. People can find themselves completely overcome with worry and fly from one deep concern to another without respite building up to a situation where they are completely unable to see a way forward and are powerless to find a why out. Triggers for anxiety can come from normal every day situations like work, finances or relationships but the can also become compulsive and take the form of repetition and insubstantial anxieties like have I left the Iron on or check that you have locked the doors repeatedly before you go to bed. These conditions can magnify themselves to such an extent as to close your life down almost completely and stop you having any kind of freedom of life at all.
