Stress and anxiety are a natural part of life. It’s normal to have a stress response to external triggers, and it is a natural system that is built to protect us. Our bodies react physically to stress and anxiety by presenting symptoms like upset stomach, chest heaviness and a lump in your throat. Experiencing those symptoms occasionally is a normal part of life. When these symptoms continue to linger, however, it can become a problem – and it can become debilitating.
Many people try to hide anxiety and stress and try to go on with daily life carrying these heavy emotional burdens. However, stress and anxiety are treatable and in just a few sessions with a therapist, you can feel so much better.
- Social withdrawal
- Changes in eating habits
Sessions with a therapist help you to envision a life where you have less stress and provide the necessary tools to get there.
