Anxiety is something we all experience from time to time. Most people can relate to those anxious, butterfly feelings when doing something which feels uncertain or feeling fearful about sitting exams, having a medical, going to the dentist.
It is a natural feeling and can be useful, as it warns us when we need to take action, when we may be in danger or can even help us to perform better.
However, anxiety can change from something everyone experiences in mild forms, to something which is persistent, excessive or over-whelming. It can begin to interfere with many aspects of your life – from confidence, to physical wellbeing and engagement in basic or complex activities of living.
The aim of this course is to explore the facts about anxiety, making a distinction between common anxiety and anxiety disorders, exploring the possible causes and considering how to face it head on.
