WHAT IS ANXIETY COUNSELING?
Anxiety is a state of feeling afraid of a future, unknown, or ambiguous threat. It is often characterized by certain physiological symptoms, along with doubt concerning the nature of the threat and our ability to handle it. Anxiety counseling helps deal with these issues and stresses.
SYMPTOMS OF ANXIETY
You know that feeling of thinking there’s one more step to go up, but when you put your foot down, there wasn’t another step? Anxiety can feel like that, only the feeling doesn’t go away.
Physiologically, anxiety can cause:

Difficulties going to sleep or staying asleep
Your forehead or hands to sweat more than normal
Breathlessness or a feeling that you can’t catch your breath
