Worrying is common to most people, but Anxiety occurs when that worrying becomes excessive and last more days than not for a minimum of six months. A person with Anxiety will find the worry difficult to control and should report at least three of the following symptoms:
- Restlessness and feeling ‘on edge’

Anxiety is also one of the main symptoms of several other psychological difficulties, including, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder (social phobia).
