Cycle of Anxiety


Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear.

Those with an anxiety disorder experience more than regular or ‘normal’ anxiety such as that before sitting an exam. It is the main symptom of several conditions, including panic disorder, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder (social phobia).

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a long-term condition that causes one to feel anxious about a wide range of situations and issues, rather than one specific event.
