Generalised anxiety disorder is a prolonged feeling of panic, worry or constant dread which is felt most of the time. It can prevent young people from engaging with school, hobbies or their social life, and in some cases can lead to clinical depression. On this pathway, the counsellor will help the young person to explore the root of the anxiety so they can understand it and begin to overcome it. The student will learn to recognise triggers for their anxiety, strategies to manage it, and will get support to build their self-esteem and resilience. This improved confidence should lead to improved mood and enable them to engage with their school and home life more confidently.
