Anxiety Disorder:

People who suffer from any anxiety disorder suffer from frequent episodes of high anxiety over the most normal situations. If you have high anxiety, either work related anxiety or personal, you will feel uncontrolled anxiety and worry too much about stuff which are in fact not a big deal at all. In fact you’re aware that there’s nothing to worry about but worry nevertheless because you can’t help yourself. You may be worried but don’t know what you’re worried about. It’s frightening and can severely interfere with daily activities. Today, due to COVID-19, many people are suffering from anxiety. A psychotherapist, through counselling and psychotherapy will help you overcome anxiety and feel better eventually.

Panic disorder:

Panic disorder is a more serious form of anxiety disorder. You experience panic attacks even in the absence of any real danger and you feel like you’re losing completely control of yourself. Common panic disorder symptoms include fast heartbeat, cold sweats, breathing issues, abdominal pain, chest pain, numbness and loss of sensation. It’s a temporary feeling but comes back in episodes which can be extremely frightening and cause people to feel scared about even stepping out of their homes.

Social anxiety disorder:

As the name suggests, people with social anxiety disorder struggle in social situations that include meeting new people, fear of socializing and interacting with people, and attending social events. Even going to a crowded restaurant can cause great anxiety to people who suffer from this condition. Social anxiety is not merely being shy or an introvert. Symptoms of social anxiety are far more serious. It’s a mental health condition that causes great stress and anxiety which interferes with daily functioning of people. However with MFine’s expert psychotherapists, overcoming social anxiety is just one click away!

Obsessive Compulsive disorder:

Commonly known as OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is characterized by repeated unwanted thoughts or sensations (obsessions) or the urge to do something over and over again (compulsions). Consult a psychotherapist on MFine to get the best treatment for OCD.

Any specific phobias:

Phobia is a type of anxiety disorder characterized by a persistent and excessive fear of an object or situation. It’s normal for all of us to have fears. But for some people, this fear interferes with normal functioning to such a degree that it becomes hard for them to deal with it and causes extreme stress and anxiety. Fear of closed spaces, crowds, fear of heights and fear of darkness are some common phobias.

These are just some of the common mental disorders which psychotherapists deal with. There are other mental health disorders such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia etc which are far more serious and pernicious. Often a psychiatrist will diagnose these conditions and will work together with a psychotherapist to provide counselling and therapy sessions.
