Anxiety Treatment Northern Beaches Sydney

Anxiety is more than feeling stressed or worried about a situation. When we feel under pressure being stressed or anxious is a normal response. Usually when the stressful situation goes away or the stressor is removed those feelings pass.

Everyone feels anxious from time to time. It’s when those feelings don’t pass and make it hard to cope with daily life that you might have an anxiety condition.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health conditions (Beyond Blue) and the sooner you get support the sooner you will be able to lead a more fulfilling life.
