Feeling Anxious? How an Anxiety Assessment Can Help
Anxiety disorders can significantly affect children, adolescents, and young adults’ emotional, social, and academic well-being. An assessment of these disorders can help individuals understand and change their thoughts, emotions, and reactions toward them.
As children, adolescents, and young adults mature, they commonly experience periods of irritability, sadness, and worry about certain situations. These feelings may be intense but will typically pass quickly. These reactions can aid in developing emotional intelligence, interpersonal communication, problem-solving, and coping abilities however.
If a child, adolescent, or young adult however is experiencing prolonged symptoms of anxiety or depression, it can negatively impact their daily functioning. These symptoms may include a specific phobia, anxiety about multiple topics, obsessive compulsive behaviour, panic, or persistent feelings of being overwhelmed.
How to Recognize the Symptoms of Anxiety
Symptoms of anxiety disorders can vary depending on the individual and the specific condition they are experiencing. Some common symptoms include:
"Assessing anxiety is not about labeling someone, it's about understanding their unique experiences and providing targeted support to help them overcome their challenges."

Comprehensive Anxiety Assessments
Anxiety assessments are essential for identifying and understanding the underlying causes of excessive anxiety. These assessments can help individuals and their families understand the nature of their anxiety and develop effective strategies for managing it.
At Randall Symes Psychological Services, we offer comprehensive anxiety assessments for children, adolescents, and adults to help individuals achieve greater emotional well-being.
As part of the assessment, the individual will be asked to complete a series of psychological tests and questionnaires. These tests are designed to assess the nature and severity of the individual’s anxiety and any related conditions, such as depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and rule out other potential contributing factors.
Effective Anxiety Treatment Options
After the assessment, our psychologists will use the gathered information to develop a diagnosis and treatment plan. This plan will be tailored to the individual’s specific needs and may include a combination of therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes.
