Anxiety is defined by persistent, excessive worries that don’t go away even in the absence of a stressor.

Anxiety disorders differ from normal feelings of nervousness or stress and involve excessive, debilitating fear.

When the symptoms of anxiety become intense, and outbalance the level of actual danger, it can have significant impact on a person's ability to carry out daily, normal activities, and physical wellbeing.

Some of the types of anxiety disorders include:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • Phobias
  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Separation Anxiety Disorder
