ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM HIGH FUNCTIONING ANXIETY?AT STAR POINT COUNSELING CENTER IN TAMPA

Do you sometimes wonder if you could possibly be diagnosed with anxiety? But then again, on second thought, you think, “no way, don’t people with anxiety in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, have messy and chaotic lives?” You, on the other hand, meet deadlines, are a star performer at work or school, and on the outside, seem to have your stuff together. After all, that is what success is measured by, isn’t it? Never mind the constant tension in your shoulders, ruminating thoughts, feeling like you’re never “enough”, having trouble falling asleep, intense fear of failing… Starting to sound familiar?

LET AN ANXIETY THERAPIST IN TAMPA, FL, TELL YOU WHY!

Let me introduce you to anxiety’s not-so-distant cousin, High functioning anxiety in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL,(HFA). They would be twins, except that(HFA) can manage to keep the inner turmoil at bay and has the outside world fooled into thinking they are meticulously in control. What they don’t let others know is that they are intensely afraid of failing, which causes them to lose sleep each night. They never think they are good enough. Therefore, feeling good about themselves is a rare occurrence and a fleeting moment just barely within grasp. They also wonder what it would feel like to relax and just enjoy a beautiful morning rather than scurrying on to the next thing demanding their ever-present attention.

IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU, AN ANXIETY THERAPIST AT STAR POINT COUNSELING CENTER IN TAMPA, FL, AND BRANDON FL, IS JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY.

Anxiety in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, is a cognition-based mental health disorder. Unfortunately, when you are faced with a strong enough stressor, you get thoughts that you are in danger which then create a cascade of fear-based responses in your body. Another interesting fun fact is that it happens regardless of if the stressor is real or imagined. The sense of danger seems to be lurking around, leaving you feeling on high alert, edgy and uncertain. Therefore, appearing from the outside, you seem like you have it all together, bright, cheery, full of energy, goal-driven, and successful. However, on the inside, you are anything but that. You are standing on the brink of a disaster waiting to happen at any moment.

Thankfully, just like with anxiety treatments at Star Point Counseling Center in Tampa FL, and Brandon FL, there are several cognitive and behavioral therapies that can be taught and, over time, help you regain your life back from the clutches of perfectionism and anxiety.
