Self Help for Anxiety
Anxiety, and Anxiety-related problems, are the most common mental health problems that people experience today (at least within Westernised cultural settings).
Anxiety is generally classified, by the bio-medical / psychiatric communities into 5 sub-groups:
- Generalised Anxiety Disorder or GAD.
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorders or OCD.
- Panic Disorders.
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.
- Social Anxiety Disorder or SAD (not to be mistaken with Seasonal Affective Disorder).
It is worth pointing out at this point that I (Paul) and many other Psychologists, do not agree with the description of these experiences as “disorders” (or mental illnesses) due to the fact that they are also ‘normal human responses’ to adverse situations in a person’s life.
However, many people seeking psychological therapy for the relief of these experiences are often fully invested in the terms due to having been ‘classified’ as suffering from such disorders by their Doctor or other Mental Health ‘expert’.
We use the terms here on this page with this consideration in mind.
