fipe v3 - Are you struggling with a constant feeling of anxiety?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) is characterised by persistent worry ("what if...") and constant worrying ("...and then what if...").  When we worry excessively, we tend to feel anxious, overwhelmed and physically tense.  

A lot of people with GAD can feel that their anxiety and worry cannot be controlled and it is a part of who they are.  People suffering from GAD (excessive worrying, uncontrollable worries, or at its worst worrying about worry)  don't realise that worrying in GAD is a perfectly treatable problem.  Guidelines produced by NICE (the National Institute of Clinical Excellence) recommend CBT for all anxiety disorders and is the most effective psychological treatment to treat Generalised Anxiety Disorder, with the longest duration of effect.
