Often the symptoms of fear and anxiety can get mixed up. Here are some examples to help you know the difference.
When a problem with anxiety develops it takes our perfectly natural evolutionary defence system and hijacks it so that we become generally anxious, socially anxious, phobic, obsessive compulsive, traumatised after an event (PTSD) or suffer from sudden panic attacks.
In the other sections we have information on each specific hijacking and how it can be helped.
Everyone experiences different types of anxiety and different reasons for it. Take a look at each section to find out more about each type and how they affect people in different ways.
Many people live and suffer with anxiety every day. Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) are proven ways to combat anxiety and related issues.
