How to Look After Someone With Anxiety

Anxiety is something that a lot of people suffer from and it is likely that if you don’t have it yourself, you will know someone who does. Some people are open about their anxiety whilst others keep it to themselves by making excuses when they are feeling anxious and can’t do something. There is a lot of help out there for people who suffer from anxiety but there is less for the people who need to take care of those people. We have put together a list of ideas on how you can help your friend or loved one with their anxiety.

Don’t be pushy

When dealing with someone who has anxiety, it is very important not to be pushy around them. Being encouraging is perfectly fine but if they really can’t go into that shop or even leave the house that day, you need to let them have a moment. Being pushy can only make it worse and its important to know the limits when encouraging someone to do something.

Encourage them to talk about it

Talking about anxiety is very important and it can really help someone get through their problem. Showing that you understand what they are going through and are there to talk about it can should show them that they can trust you. After talking about it once, they should become more comfortable in talking about it.

Talk to them about professional help

If your loved one or friend does not want to open up to you, it is important to explain to them that there are other options. These include going to see a counsellor, a doctor or an online counsellor like those at AskaCoach.pro. This website lets you talk to trained therapists online which seems perfect for those with anxiety who many not be able to leave the house to go see a therapist. Make sure to go through the options carefully with your loved one and ensure that they know that they have your full support.

Be positive for every small step

When it comes to anxiety, every small step is crucial in the road to overcoming this mental illness. If your loved one thinks they cannot do something as simple as talking to a stranger and they manage to do it – congratulate them! They have managed to achieve something they thought they couldn’t do and it is important to make sure that they know that you are proud of them for every small step.

Summary

Make sure to approach every one of these tips with care and ensure that you are being understanding of the problem that your loved one is facing. Mental health is very important, and people are campaigning hard to make sure that just because you can’t see a physical illness, people are still suffering.
