What is anxiety?

Anxiety is the body’s natural response to stressful, dangerous, challenging, exciting, or new situations. It is commonly characterized by apprehension, worry, or intense fear. Though anxiety can be a healthy human emotion that helps us stay alert and aware (and can even motivate us), persistent anxiety can affect your quality of life and stand in the way of reaching your goals.

Anxiety encompasses a range of issues including generalized anxiety disorder, specific phobias, social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. If you are experiencing anxiety, you are not alone, and our clinicians at Autonomy Therapy are here to support you.
