Health Anxiety

Health anxiety refers to a high level of concern about one’s health.Health Anxiety, Hypochonn

The most common symptoms of health anxiety are:

  • Excessive worry about very small bodily changes
  • Fear and dread when  these  bodily changes are noticed
  • Stress and related bodily sensations, such as a racing heart
  • Repeatedly visiting the doctor for reassurance that there is no disease or illness present

Health Anxiety can cause problems across many areas of an individual’s life, especially their work performance and their social life. If you would like assistance in the treatment for anxiety or to find a psychologist in Perth, contact us today.
