Everyone gets anxious sometimes

When does an ordinary worry become a problem? This is called anxiety. It’s normal to feel anxious when we face something new or that frightens us. You might recognise the signs of anxiety when your heart starts beating faster and your breathing speeds up. Anxiety may build when you are about to start something new (a new year group, a new school), when exam time is approaching or when something goes wrong with friendships. Look after yourself and anxiety can pass.

How can I reduce my anxious feelings?

The pastoral support team at school should be able to support and direct you in the right way – you may have a school counsellor that you get to speak with. Your GP can also talk to you about taking care of yourself to manage anxiety.
