Anxiety is a common emotion that everyone experiences from time to time. For some people anxiety becomes dominant and has a very serious effect on everyday life. Often people who experience an anxiety disorder worry about future events and may develop a fear of anxiety itself. Anxiety disorders can be linked to temperament, early life experiences, or trauma. Symptoms can be both physical and emotional, such as an increased heart rate and a feeling of panic. It is important for sufferers to find counselling for their anxiety symptoms so that they can stop avoiding life and regain a sense of control. Counselling is often the most effective treatment for anxiety.
