Dr. Michael Dadson (Mike Dadson) states: The cause of anxiety may be related to the belief that one’s sense of self is worthless, the belief and thinking that you have a low sense of self-worth, or that your value isn’t high”.

In therapy, Dr. Mike Dadson will get to the core of your beliefs, thinking, and feelings of low self-worth, or the feeling of sadness, or even self-hatred.

When people are not able to manage their day-to-day relationships, it can be a fundamental cause of anxiety or depression.

According to Dr. Michael Dadson, “Anxiety is a natural response to stress or repeated exposure stress or to a stressful incident.” Anxiety can also be accompanied by symptoms of depression or avoidance. Types of anxiety disorders include: generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, panic disorder, specific phobias, and agoraphobia.

Dr. Dadson relates, “Anxiety disorders often involve excessive feelings of fear and anxiousness that are unnecessary or unwarranted.

These differ in sharp contrast to occasionally feeling nervous or anxious – a natural instinct that can protect us or warn us from danger.
