Expert help for anxiety disorders
Anxiety disorders are common mental health conditions that can manifest in a variety of ways, reducing an individual’s wellbeing and their ability to function effectively on a day-to-day basis. Although anxiety and worry are normal human emotions, experiencing high levels of anxiety for a prolonged period of time can lead to the development of what can be a debilitating anxiety disorder.
At Priory, we recognise that a person with an anxiety disorder experiences symptoms of a mental health condition that will often require professional help to overcome. It’s important to understand that you don’t have to struggle alone, and that anxiety is treatable; our expert team of psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists are able to offer comprehensive and individually tailored anxiety treatment at our specialist hospitals and wellbeing centres, empowering you to address the causes of your anxiety, tackle your symptoms, and improve your health and wellbeing.
Our highly skilled treatment team have a wealth of clinical expertise and experience in treating anxiety, and are able to deliver a broad range of tried and tested therapeutic techniques to help you to alleviate your anxiety symptoms, and resolve the underlying causes and triggers for your anxiety. Our anxiety treatment specialists are also able to prescribe medication for your anxiety, if this is deemed appropriate for you. Each individual who seeks support with us is placed at the centre of their treatment journey, and is involved in all decisions regarding their care. This ensures that you benefit from a truly personalised treatment experience, that produces the best outcomes for you as an individual. Our highly supportive, compassionate and therapeutic treatment environments provide you with the ideal setting in which to address your concerns, and take steps towards achieving a full and sustainable recovery.
It is important to recognise that without expert support, your anxiety may become progressively worse over time and can continue to have a detrimental impact on all areas of your life including your ability to function effectively on a daily basis, your performance at work or school, your relationships with others, and your general health and wellbeing. Therefore, whilst seeking psychological treatment for your anxiety can seem to be an overwhelming prospect, it is the most crucial step that you can take to overcome your anxiety and regain control of your life.
