Self-Care: How to Stop Worrying so Much


Self-Care resourses from this website are not intended to be used in the place of professionally defined treatments and therapies but to act as a complement to any existing treatment. If you have or need the support of a health-care professional then ask them for the appropriateness of using Self-Care to support the treatment that they have prescribed.
These Self-Care resources are designed to be safe to use, to be as simple as possible to use, and are generalised. By definition these Self-Care resources cannot be made therapeutic as there is no assessment possible of individual needs and no personalisation of the resource content. Self-Care from this website is intended to be educational in the sense that the theory and content of the Self-Care resource is described, how it may be able to help is described, and how to get the best out of the approach now and into the future is also provided.
Anxiety is a very varied experience that can arise from a wide variety of causes and can lead to a spectrum of feelings and thoughts. There are also a wide variety of techniques, therapies, and approaches that can be valuable to manage and reduce anxiety.
Most forms of anxiety have potential benefits but over time, and when the anxiety is strong, any potential problem-solving benefit can become swamped by the emotional discomfort and mental confusion that represents chronic (long-term) anxiety.
