Anxiety & Stress in and of themselves are not a disease or illness but turn into conditions when a person becomes physically, psychologically, emotionally, fearful or distraught because of their symptoms. All human beings encounter normal levels of anxiety and fear in response to day-to-day circumstances. In fact, anxiety is a healthy response in many situations. But, when levels of stress and fear are excessive, they have an impact on our physical and psychological well-being and should be addressed.
Trauma is an emotional response to a terrible event. Immediately after the event, shock, and denial are typical. While these feelings are normal, some people have difficulty moving on with their lives.
Therapists can help these individuals find constructive ways of managing their emotions. People who fully engage in recovery from trauma and anxiety discover unexpected benefits—developing inner strength, compassion for others, increasing self-awareness, and often the most surprising -- a greater ability to experience joy and serenity than ever before.
