  • being easily fatigued

  • difficulty concentrating or mind going blank

  • irritability

  • muscle tension

  • sleep disturbance (difficulty falling or staying asleep, or restless, unsatisfying sleep)

How therapy can help:

A therapist can:

  • Help you understand your condition, based on your unique situation and circumstances. Since anxiety affects each person differently, a therapist can help you understand your anxiety condition as it pertains to you specifically, and not generally.

  • Help you to better understand your symptoms.

  • Help you understand why your condition developed.

  • Identify the underlying factors associated with your condition (the core issues and causes).

  • Help you to understand how they developed and where they came from.

  • Formulate a personalized recovery plan specifically for your unique situation and circumstances.

  • Provide you with tools and strategies to bring about healthy change.

  • Help you to remain on track with your recovery goals.

  • Provide ongoing question and answer support.

  • Make sure that all troublesome areas are addressed so that your recovery is complete.

  • Support you through the rough spots on the way to lasting recovery.

  • Design a medication elimination strategy and suitable tapering regime, if applicable and desired.

  • Provide insight on medication elimination expectations.
