Excessive Worry


Everyone has feeling of worry at some point in in their life – for example, you may feel worried about sitting an exam, or having medical test or job interview. During times like these it is perfectly normal to feel worried. But some people find it hard to control their worries. Their feelings of worry are more constant and can often affect their daily lives. You may find that the worry has caused you to become anxious.

Overcoming Worry Group

Do you:

  • Worry a lot about different things in daily life? 
  • Believe worry helps you plan or do things better, or it is a sign you care?
  • Have a lot of different ‘What if thoughts …?’ about the future?
  • Believe you were born a ‘worrier’?
  • Experience muscle tension – especially in your neck and shoulders?
  • Have trouble sleeping?
  • Feel restless, on edge, irritable, tired or exhausted easily?
