CBT for generalised anxiety disorder (GAD)

Are you struggling with a constant feeling of anxiety?

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.  

CBT Therapists for GAD

It’s time to get help with Generalised Anxiety Disorder when: 

  • You frequently feel anxiety and excessively worried about your life

  • You predict one disaster after another

  • You think that your worrying will prevent bad things from happening

  • You find it difficult to tolerate any degree of uncertainty

  • You worry that your worries are becoming out of control

  • You can’t turn off your worry, and its anxiety is affecting your daily life

  • You’re finding it hard to sleep, or you have nausea, IBS symptoms, aches and pains, difficulty concentrating, and are indecisive or feel hopeless

  • You no longer enjoy activities or events which used to be pleasurable

  • You feel chronically anxious or depressed.

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

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.
