If you have a generalized anxiety disorder, you tend to worry about a number of things in your daily life. You may be very anxious about just getting through the day and tend to find difficult to control or stop worrying.
Symptoms may include:
Cognitive behavioural therapy can help change an anxious mindset to one of increased positivity.
A panic disorder (or panic attack) is a sudden and repeated attack of fear that may last for several minutes. Panic attacks are characterized by a fear of disaster or of losing control even when there is no real danger. You may have a strong physical reaction during a panic attack such as a racing heart, sweating, breathing problems, weakness or dizziness, tingly or numb hands or chest pain.
Symptoms may include:
Cognitive behavioural therapy can help change a panicky mindset to one of increased calmness.
If you have a social phobia, you may tend to be afraid of doing things in front of other people. More than just shyness, social phobia involves a combination of excessive self-consciousness, a fear of public humiliation and a fear of being judged by others.
Cognitive behavioural therapy can help improve social confidence.

Now I have a better mood and energy.
I visited Joanna last year for a health problem with my stomach, I had clear health exams and my doctor said it caused from work stress. I referred to Joanna and started psychotherapy with health psychology and cognitive behaviour therapy. After six sessions I felt more balanced and I am in my way to have my healthy body back.
