Anxiety Psychiatrist

While it is a word that is used to describe a general emotion felt in different circumstances, anxiety as a mental health condition, often known as anxiety and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), becomes a problem when the feelings of anxiety are more constant and life-impacting.

Common symptoms of general anxiety disorder can include feelings of anxiety with no obvious cause, anxious feelings for long periods of time, as well as physical symptoms like nausea, dizziness, fainting, and headaches. It may take time for a patient to realise the signs and symptoms they are experiencing are in fact anxiety, but once diagnosed this mental health condition can be effectively treated with the right solutions.

Psychiatry For Anxiety

Anxiety is a common mental health condition, with an estimated 1 in 13 people worldwide experiencing some form of anxiety disorder. However, it is important to note that not all cases of anxiety require the intervention of a psychiatrist. In many cases, mild anxiety can be managed with self-care techniques and therapy sessions with a mental health counsellor or psychologist.

But for those who are experiencing severe and persistent symptoms of anxiety, seeking the help of a psychiatrist may be necessary. As an experienced and specialised psychiatrist, I am able to diagnose your anxiety, as well as any other underlying mental health conditions, and offer a range of treatments. From medications to therapy, different approaches will work for different patients, which is why seeking the guidance of a psychiatrist provides the best solution for finding a treatment that can be tailored to your specific needs, with the best outcomes for you.

Managing Anxiety & Depression

Normally a condition such as anxiety is somewhat integrated with other conditions, like depression. Both can be very crippling conditions for which treatment can be very effective. I have had extensive experience of treating these conditions effectively with medication and psychological treatments which normally can go hand in hand when it comes to clinical effectiveness.

A Psychiatric Assessment For Anxiety

With an initial psychiatric assessment for anxiety, I will spend the time listening to your concerns and challenges, identifying the main areas of concerns, and discuss with you the next best steps.

The normal approach being that once you have some control back via medication then having the correct psychological input can help you to understand the mechanisms that have caused this. Unfortunately patients at times can sometimes be ineffectively treated due to health professionals not fully understanding differences between the antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications. It is important that medication and psychological treatment is tailored to the individual so that patients can then have the best chance of being able to improve their life again.

With my experience I am able to identify your condition and offer you the best treatment plan to take control of your anxiety condition and work with you to get your life back on track. However anxiety has impacted your life, it doesn’t have to be this way forever. Complete an initial assessment with me and my team to take control of your life.
