We all feel anxiety - a natural response to the threat of danger - with help it can be more manageable.
Moderate levels of anxiety can help us perform well in certain situations, such as job interviews or exams.
However, excessive anxiety over a prolonged period, anxiety triggered by harmless situations or with no apparent cause, can become problematic.
It’s natural for you to want to escape from difficult situations or avoid them altogether. However, this will only increase anxiety in the long run.
