Anxiety Counseling - Therapists in Jenison

What is anxiety anyway?

Anxiety counseling helps reduce or eliminate anxiety. Anxiety is the physical and emotional response our bodies and minds have when we don’t know what’s going to happen next. Everyone experiences anxiety to one degree or another, this is normal.  However, sometimes it becomes too much, and interferes with daily life. Excessive amounts of nervousness, fear, apprehension, or worry are not healthy for us.  It can cause our heart rate and blood pressure to increase. It can make it hard to focus. For others it makes us more irritable than usual. In some people, it can cause breathing problems, difficulty sleeping, or an actual panic attack.  It impacts each person a little bit differently.

Do you find yourself feeling or thinking these things?

My mind is running a mile a minute and I can’t get it to stop. I can’t concentrate to save my life at work.  

I can’t seem to do anything right.  I worry all the time about what people think about me.  Will my life always be this hard? Everyone has their life together except for me. I can’t do anything right, I’m never good enough. 

I get stomach aches a lot and it’s not anything medical. Sometimes I have a hard time catching my breath or my heart beats really fast. I have a hard time getting to sleep. 

I’m irritated a lot and I don’t know why. All I do is worry and make a big deal out of stuff I know I shouldn’t. I worry about money all the time.
