Anxiety is characterized by intense feelings of worry and fear. People with anxiety disorders may even have these feelings in response to non-threatening, everyday situations. Anxiety is a complex emotion that is sometimes accompanied by intense physical responses. You feel anxiety in both your mind and your body, and the symptoms can be terrifying and even debilitating. Chronic anxiety can be overwhelming and exhausting.
Our unique approach to treating anxiety aims to reduce your anxiety symptoms and prepare you to head them off in the future. We use a combination of techniques to help you achieve a calmer state of mind.
Certain brainwave patterns can be seen in people with anxiety disorders. The most common include excessive beta and diminished alpha levels, beta spindles, increased right frontal lobe activity, and higher than normal alpha peak frequency (Arns, 2008). At Hills, we thoroughly examine your brain patterns, using brain mapping, to help develop the right course of treatment.
