Health Anxiety

Illness Anxiety involves a preoccupation with fear of having a serious disorder or a belief that one has a serious disorder. This usually causes great distress. It is treated using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. One of the main goals of treatment is to identify the thoughts and behaviours that keep the anxiety going, and to gradually modify and eliminate them.
