Anxiety is a prevalent issue worldwide, and has been especially recognised in the UK. Many Brits get very stressed about things such as work, a lack of work, school, family life, abuse in the home, and so forth. It affects us all from toddlers to pensioners, and is incredibly common. Anxiety however isn't the end of the world as it can easily be managed with the right course of therapy. The thoughtful folks at Klearminds have come up with a great graphic discussing the ins and outs of anxiety from who suffers to how to curb it to help you recognise the symptoms in loved ones, or even yourself.
However, please bear in mind that in some cases anxiety can be one of the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), in which case it is sensible to find a counsellor or psychologist trained in helping trauma victims, rather than an therapist who is trained in helping with 'normal' anxiety, as opposed to the more complex PTSD.
Anxiety and PTSD can also affect children who have either witnessed domestic violence, or in some way been involved in the actual domestic abuse, eg trying to intercept an incident. Anxiety can also simply be a result of parents splitting up or having to move out of their normal home and environment. Hence it is always a good idea to also keep a look out for signs of anxiety and/or PTSD in children living or having lived in an abusive household. Further information on PTSD in children can be found here.
