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

Do you, or someone you know, suffer from anxiety or experience regular symptoms of anxiety?

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.

 

Everyone feels ‘uneasy’ from time to time, but for those who suffer from social anxiety or other similar disorders, those feelings can become debilitating. 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 difficulties.

 

MHM is a Gold Coast practice where people who need to see a social anxiety psychologist or someone who can help with other 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 to give us the 'push' we need in some situations. However, if anxiety, worry, or stress begin to impact your ability to function each day, seeking help should be a priority.

 

If you have intense feelings of distress, worry or fear that you are 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 better understand what is causing your worry and distress and whether you meet criteria for a specific anxiety disorder. Be it a characterological predisposition, past traumatic event, ongoing stress at home or work, physical health issues, study stress, or family issues, talking to someone about your particular concerns will help decide on the best course of treatment to manage your emotions.

 

 

What are the symptoms?

 

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

 

  • Persistent worrying;
  • 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;
  • Dizziness;
  • Appetite changes;
  • Sleeping issues such as insomnia or waking often.

 

Anxiety can lead to a sense of being overwhelmed, exhaustion and avoidance of anxiety-provoking situations.
