HERE’S SOME MORE INFORMATION ON THE MOOD DISORDERS I TYPICALLY TREAT:
Anxiety is a very common condition that can be triggered by traumatic events, social and workplace situations, or simply manifest itself as a feeling of general unease and stress.
Experiencing a certain degree of anxiety is natural. But experiencing too much anxiety becomes unhealthy. Living with a constant or near-constant state of anxiety you feel unable to control, is destabilising and rarely corrects itself.
Under stress your body releases a hormone called cortisol to reduce the stressful feeling. Over time cortisol can weaken your immune system. Which is why treating anxiety generally improves your overall health as well as mental wellbeing.
