When normal worrying becomes persistant, excessive, exaggerated worry about everyday life events then we can classify this as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD).  People with GAD tend to see the world as a dangerous place and constantly look out for threats.  They tend to expect disaster, feel that their future is unpredictable and can't stop worrying about themselves, their family, health, money or work.  

Main symptoms include: 

  • Excessive worrying
  • Disturbed sleep 
  • Unable to relax
  • Restlessness
  • Irriability (snapping at the ones we love)
  • Changes to eating habits
  • A sense of dread
  • Fast heart rate
  • Feeling sick 
  • Increase blood pressure
  • Chest pains


Treatment includes psychoeducation around anxiety and the role of your brain. CBT, mindfulness, breathing strategies and EMDR.
