Most of us feel sad, anxious, low or stressed now and again in response to things that happen in our life.

Whilst for most people this is short lived, for others it can cause ongoing distress, a sense of hopelessness about the future and can impact on quality of life. Feeling like this can really bring you down and affect your work, relationships and health.

Feelings can also impact on your body as well as your mind. You may go through a range of different physical symptoms including tension, headaches, stomach aches, difficulty sleeping or lack of concentration.

NHS Buckinghamshire Talking Therapies could help anyone over the age of 18 experiencing some of these difficulties.
