Anxiety can manifest as persistent worry, restlessness, and a sense of impending danger, making it difficult for survivors to find peace and stability in their lives. Through compassionate care and evidence-based approaches, we offer a safe space for clients to explore their anxieties, develop coping strategies, and embark on a healing journey towards reclaiming their lives. Together, we aim to restore a sense of calm, resilience, and hope.


At Grey Matter Therapy™ we understand the profound impact anxiety can have on individuals who have experienced traumatic events.

Anxiety has a way of weaving itself into each part of a person’s existence.

Whether it takes the form of full-blown panic or chronic worry, anxiety can limit the potential of every aspect in your life.

It might stop you from going to college, prevent you from finding a job, damage your relationships, or even make you a prisoner in your own home. In short, it can be truly incapacitating. It’s important for you to know, you are not alone.

Anxiety disorder can also be caused due to emotional, cognitive, and behavioural characteristics.

Emotionally, we experience terror and dread, and we often are irritable or restless. Cognitively, we are on the lookout for danger.

Behaviourally, we seek to confront the threat or escape from it.

In a realistic fear response, these emotional, cognitive, and behavioural responses subside when the threat subsides.

Anxiety can manifest in various ways and can affect individuals differently.


  • Physical Symptoms: Anxiety often has physical manifestations such as a rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, chest tightness, sweating, trembling, headaches, stomachaches, nausea, muscle tension, and fatigue.

  • Psychological Symptoms: Anxiety can cause psychological symptoms such as excessive worrying, racing thoughts, difficulty concentrating, restlessness, irritability, feeling on edge, trouble sleeping or experiencing disturbed sleep, and a sense of impending doom.

  • Behavioural Changes: People with anxiety may exhibit certain behavioural changes, including avoiding certain situations or places that trigger anxiety, seeking constant reassurance from others, becoming easily startled or jumpy, engaging in repetitive behaviours (e.g., pacing, fidgeting), or experiencing difficulty in making decisions.

  • Social and Emotional Effects: Anxiety can impact an individual's social interactions and emotional well-being. It may lead to social withdrawal, feeling self-conscious or embarrassed, difficulty in expressing oneself, fear of judgment or criticism, increased sensitivity to perceived criticism or rejection, and heightened emotional responses such as irritability, anger, or tearfulness.

  • Cognitive Patterns: Anxiety can influence thought patterns and cognitive processes. It may involve excessive worrying about future events or potential negative outcomes, difficulty in controlling or stopping worry, overthinking, catastrophic thinking (expecting the worst-case scenario), difficulty in concentrating or focusing on tasks, and experiencing racing thoughts.

  • Physical Health Issues: Prolonged anxiety can potentially contribute to physical health problems over time. It may weaken the immune system, increase blood pressure, disrupt digestion, contribute to chronic pain or tension, and potentially affect overall well-being.
