Workshop: Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety and Depression
Depression and anxiety impacts the lives of millions of people from all walks of life, gender and age.
Overcoming stress, anxiety and depression can sometimes feel like we are in a war without hope or help at hand. Join Life Coach Bennie Louw, helping you learn how to better manage stress, anxiety and depression.
Anxiety and Depression are two of the most widely reported mental disorders
Anxiety is something that exists in everyday life and in certain instances can be helpful, but sometimes when unchecked it can also be really debilitating. Although we need some anxiety to keep us alert it can affect our lives in many negative ways and when anxiety spirals out of control it can be overwhelming, mentally and physically. When this happens it may be time to reflect and seek help.
The feeling of Anxiety can come in many different guises e.g. panic, phobias, social anxiety, post traumatic stress, general anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive behavior, and many more.
Symptoms such excessive worry, sleep problems, irrational fears, muscle tension, chronic indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, stage fright, self-consciousness, panic attacks, flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviors, self-doubt are among the tell tale signs that you may need help.
Nearly 50% of people suffering from Anxiety also suffer from depression. According to The World Health Organisation, depression is the leading cause for ill health and disability. More than 300 million people suffer from depression and this number increases more than 15% a year.
Anxiety and Depression effects you in more ways than one and this event is not only for those that have anxiety and depression, but for those that have loved ones, family, friends, co-workers or bosses that suffer from this.
With a better understanding of anxiety and depression you can be the difference for those around you.
