Many of us feel times of anxiety; it is a normal human feeling when in a threatening or difficult situation. You may feel worry with a continuing problem such as money issues or fear in a situation of immediate threat such as faced with an angry dog. Fear and worry are both positive in these situations to help us avoid danger or motivate us to do something about a problem.
However, the feelings of anxiety can become too strong or go on for too long. If you find these anxiety feelings are preventing you from doing things you want to, are making your life miserable or happening most of the time without you knowing the cause, it is time to seek anxiety treatment.
Our treatment approach for anxiety
Our approach to treating anxiety at Nightingale Hospital London combines individualised treatment programmes with treatments based on current clinical evidence. There are two types of treatment available for anxiety: talking therapies and medication. Psychotherapy or counselling can help you understand and come to terms with your anxieties and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help you learn more positive emotional and behavioural responses to situations and feelings that bring on your anxiety.
Medication can also be effective if your anxiety is severe. It may help you to feel less anxious and cope better so that you can start to enjoy life and deal with problems effectively again.
