Types Of Anxiety Disorders

In the field of mental health, there are various types of anxiety disorders:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder: This involves experiencing excessive, unrealistic, all-encompassing worries and tension without a clear reason.

  2. Panic Disorder: This manifests as sudden, intense anxiety where individuals may start sweating, feel chest pain, experience palpitations, and sometimes feel like they are suffocating or having a heart attack.

  3. Social Anxiety Disorder: Also known as social phobia, this is experienced by people who excessively worry and feel very self-conscious in everyday social situations. They are primarily fearful of being judged, humiliated, or ridiculed.

  4. Specific Phobias: These occur when someone has an intense fear of a specific object or situation, such as heights, flying, elevators, etc. The fear is disproportionate and may lead to the avoidance of normal, non-threatening situations. Agoraphobia is a specific phobia where individuals are extremely anxious about being in a place from which escape seems difficult in an emergency. People experiencing this may be highly anxious on a plane or in public transportation.

  5. Separation Anxiety Disorder: This is not exclusive to young children. It can occur when individuals become anxious when a loved one is not in their presence, fearing that something may happen to that person.

  6. Medication-Induced Anxiety: Some medications or illegal drugs can trigger symptoms of an anxiety disorder.

We’ll be honest: overcoming anxiety isn’t a stroll through the park. However, our multifaceted programme assures you of optimal guidance and support throughout your recovery. We specialize in various forms of psychological treatment, namely Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Trust is what keeps our team and community together. We are ardently focused on helping you achieve a realistic reintegration into your original environment and community. For that, we need you to act. Only talking doesn’t cut it. Re-integration requires commitment, effort, and hard work. If you’re up for it, we promise to support you in every way we can.

“Action is key. Nobody talks themselves into anxiety, and we cannot simply talk our way out of it.”
