Anxiety is a term that is used for a variety of conditions that induce feelings of nervousness, worry or fear. The effects of anxiety are not limited only to the mind but can also cause physical symptoms. While we all from time to time will have feelings of anxiety, worry or stress, this is different to an anxiety disorder. If your symptoms do not go away on their own, they can start to overcome your life. The most common different types of anxiety are:

Generalised Anxiety Disorder
Someone with Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) feels anxious on most days and about lots of different things, for an extended period of time.

Social Anxiety
It is a type of anxiety involving the fear of being judged and evaluated negatively by other people, leading to feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, self-consciousness, embarrassment, humiliation and depression.

Panic Disorder
Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear or heightened anxiety with associated physiological symptoms. People can feel they are dying or having a heart attack. Repeated panic attacks are considered to be attributed to Panic Attack Disorder.
