What is Anxiety?
Anxiety is one of the most common Mental Health conditions experienced in Australia and America today!
According to the APS (Australian Psychological Society) anxiety is referred to as ‘feelings of worry, nervousness or a sense of apprehension’. We all experience anxiety at some point in our lives and it is a perfectly normal reaction to have to a stressful or nerve racking event.

Anxiety is often accompanied with symptoms such as:
- Difficulty Breathing
- Racing Heart
- Sweaty Palms
- Difficulty Concentrating
- Dry mouth
- Hot and Cold Flushes
- Tightness in your Chest
- Excessive/Obsessive Thinking
- Avoidance of People or Places
- Negative Thoughts
And the list goes on….
