Anxiety symptoms and related anxiety disorders tend to first appear in childhood – such as presenting or speaking in the classroom. These disorders tend to come and go throughout life in both positive and negative transitions such as changes in your job, relationships, and more. Acute anxiety episodes can come on suddenly known as Panic Attacks. Sometimes they can even be severe enough that you can end up in an emergency room! There is even a form of anxiety that can appear weeks, months or even more before a triggering event known as Anticipatory Dread.
In this video, James Robbins, lead therapist at Dallas Whole Life Counseling, explains how anxiety can affect a person all the way from childhood through the positive, negative and necessary transitions of life and how he addresses such anxiety with his clients.
