Generalised Anxiety and Depression (GAD)

Generalised Anxiety and Depression (GAD)

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a persistent condition inducing broad anxiety across various situations, not just one event. Those with GAD experience near-constant unease, often forgetting the feeling of relaxation.

Once a worry is addressed, another might arise concerning a distinct matter. GAD manifests with mental and physical symptoms like restlessness, concentration issues, sleep disturbances, dizziness, and heart palpitations, albeit varying among individuals.

Treatment Options

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is founded on the principle that our thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, and actions are interconnected, forming intricate patterns. When unhelpful thoughts and emotions take hold, they can trap us in a harmful cycle. The primary goal of CBT is to empower individuals to confront overwhelming challenges with a more positive outlook by breaking them down into manageable components. CBT equips individuals with practical strategies to reshape these negative patterns, resulting in a noticeable improvement in emotional well-being. Unlike certain other therapeutic approaches, CBT focuses on addressing current issues rather than delving extensively into past experiences. Its emphasis is on uncovering concrete and actionable methods to cultivate a healthier mindset in everyday life.
