Visit us to learn more about anxiety treatment – based on the Gold Coast

Do you, or someone you know, suffer from anxiety or experience the symptoms regularly?

Did you know this condition is one of the most common mental health issues in Australia? One in four Australians will suffer from some form of the disorder at some stage in their life. Yes, even on the sunny Gold Coast, many residents will seek out anxiety treatment to help them overcome these challenges.

 

Whilst the condition may be common, that does not make it any easier to cope with. Everyone may feel ‘uneasy’ from time to time, but for those who suffer from social anxiety or other similar disorders, those feelings never go away. That worry, fear and nervousness can begin to impact a person’s daily life, so the sooner you’re able to get the support and treatment you need, the better your chances of overcoming these hurdles.

 

MHM is a Gold Coast practice where people who need to see a social anxiety psychologist or someone who can help with other various mental health disorders, can seek support in a safe and comfortable environment. We provide solutions all across Coomera, Upper Coomera, Pimpama, Oxenford and Hope Island.

 

What is anxiety?

 

It is not uncommon to feel anxious about certain things. In fact, low levels of these feelings are normal and can even help in some situations. However, it is when you are concerned about how anxious you are and when it starts to impact your day-to-day living that you may need to think about seeking help.

 

If you have intense feelings of distress, worry or fear that you are finding hard to control, it may be time to seek anxiety treatment.

 

There are many different forms of this condition, the most common being generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety, specific phobias and panic disorder.

 

Speaking to a trained psychologist, like Dr Bartholomew at MHM in Coomera, may help you figure out what is causing your worry and what form it takes specifically. Be it a genetic predisposition, past traumatic event, ongoing stress at home or work, physical health issues, study stress or family background, talking to someone about it will help form a diagnosis and decide on the best course of treatment to help you manage your emotions.

 

 

What are the symptoms?

 

There are many signs that point to this condition, including:

 

  • Constant worrying about what may be trivial things;
  • Feeling scared a lot of the time;
  • Nervousness or panic;
  • Irritability, agitation, tension or feeling on edge;
  • Gastrointestinal issues such as nausea and vomiting;
  • Shaking hands, limbs or even your whole body;
  • Sweating;
  • Pounding heart;
  • Shortness of breath;
  • Sleeping issues such as insomnia or waking often.

 

When these feelings and physical manifestations take over, it can lead to a feeling of being overwhelmed, exhaustion and avoidance of social situations.

 

If this sounds like you, if it is ticking boxes for you or a loved one, then perhaps it is time to seek the help you need. Anxiety treatment is available at our Gold Coast clinic. Speak to a trained anxiety psychologist today and take that first important step to improve your mental health. We offer our services to those across Coomera, Upper Coomera, Pimpama, Oxenford, Hope Island and surrounds.
