How do I know if I have anxiety?
There are many different types of anxiety. You could be anxious about all kinds of things, or anxious for no reason at all.
From social situations to specific fears, anyone can feel anxiety at any time. Anything can trigger it. It doesn’t have to be rational – family concerns, job stresses, a fear of clowns – it varies from person to person.
Regardless of the symptoms, if you’re feeling anxious and want to speak to someone, our GPs can help.

Our GPs look beyond your symptoms to address the full picture of your health. If you need help, we’re here to listen – no matter what you’re feeling.
"I knew there was something wrong – I just needed someone to talk to about it."
For years, Laura suffered from anxiety. She struggled to concentrate on work, distant from the people closest to her, and unable to sleep at night. She thought her anxious feelings were an overreaction to life's circumstances.
When things were getting too much to cope, she reached out to us. We helped Laura understand what was causing her to feel anxious and find new ways to deal with her symptoms.
Why would I see a GP
for my mental health?
Our GPs look beyond your mind to assess a complete, overall picture of your health. That includes looking at physical problems arising from their mental health concerns or mental health issues arising from physical problems. As well as environmental factors that contribute to how you're feeling in 40-minute appointments.
Our GPs train with mental health specialists to improve the way we evaluate patients. With their many years of experience, they're well equipped to look after your mental health concerns. Each doctor can put together individualised plans and goals to improve your overall wellbeing.
With the help of our GPs, you’ll be shown how to deal with your health concerns; understand what you can control, and what you can’t. It’s a full-bodied approach to care.
