Separation Anxiety Disorder

Separation anxiety disorder can affect anyone at any age and there is a common misunderstanding that it only affects children and young people. Power feelings of anxiety are triggered by the absence of someone or something that provides a sense of security. Attachment is a word often associated with separation anxiety. The following are signs and symptoms of separation anxiety disorder:

  • Anxiety at being separated from loved ones.
  • Fear of losing a parent to illness or natural disaster on a regular basis
  • Afraid of being separated from my family, therefore I'm not leaving the house.

New situations, like moving away from loved ones, major life disappointments, traumatic events, losses and bereavements are all examples of events that might trigger separation anxiety. As one of the anxiety disorders it is often brought to counselling and therapy.
