Levels of anxiety can increase through difficult change, challenges, loss, grief, and trauma. There is much talk about increased anxiety especially due to the worldwide pandemic. For some people, anxiety may begin to intrude and affect their daily lives, their relationships, and how they see the world and their future. What then is anxiety, and what are the causes and impacts? How can we support and equip those experiencing anxiety through challenging situations? What support, resources and techniques will help? When is it wise to refer on for further support?
