Treating Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

GAD is a common anxiety disorder that involves constant and long term worrying, nervousness, and tension. Unlike a phobia, where someone’s fear is linked to a specific situation or thing, GAD is an overall, general feeling of dread, unease and anxiety that affects all areas of the person’s life.

Symptoms could include:

  • Muscle tightness
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Racing mind
  • Feeling on edge

Those with GAD regularly worry about and anticipate things going wrong, often worrying excessively about health, money, family, or work. If left untreated, GAD can seriously negatively impact a person’s entire daily life – they may not be able to work, study, or enjoy normal social relationships.

What causes GAD?

GAD could be caused by a variety of reasons such as; a family history of anxiety, excessive stress, family or personal illness.

Does this sound familiar to you? If yes, the good news is that GAD can be effectively treated with Hypno-CBT which will teach you skills for handling anxiety, helping you to learn to control your worry on your own.
