Sometimes people with anxiety just worry, but they are unable to say what they are worried about. They report feelings that something bad may happen or may report that they just can’t calm themselves. Anxiety disorder may occur alone but also commonly occurs with related disorders including panic disorder, phobias), obsessive-compulsive disorder, clinical depression, or substance or alcohol misuse.

Causes of and risk factors for GAD may include:

A family history of anxiety

Recent or prolonged exposure to stressful situations, including personal or family illnesses

Excessive use of caffeine or tobacco, which can make existing anxiety worse

Childhood abuse

I traveled from Los Angeles to Istana Jiwa on the recommendation of a friend and in my mind it was a leap into the unknown. I was completely unprepared for how cosmopolitan, competent, professional and caring the staff were. From the moment I was met at the airport to the moment I left I felt cared for and understood. This was an utterly life changing experience, I never thought I would say I loved going to rehabilitation but I actually did.

For my sins I have been to a few treatment centres around the world, nothing comes close to Istana Jiwa. I went deeper and achieved more in therapy than I have ever gone before, I made peace with meditation and yoga - both things I have resisted in the past and both I now practise in daily life. I feel transformed, thank you.

I went to Istana Jiwa to reset my mind and change the way I was living. Stress had got the better of me, I was partying too hard and I was close to blowing up my career and losing my family. Amazingly I found some like minded souls in the Istana Jiwa team, people who had lived my life in the corporate arena, who understood me and helped me recalibrate my life. I now feel better than ever before, and I even gave up smoking there!

I started with Istana Jiwa in pretty ordinary shape; marriage had collapsed and I was self medicating with anything I could find to suppress the deep sense of despair and depression. The program transformed me – physically and emotionally. I spent 60 days in the program working on finding myself and I left feeling genuine hope and a real fortitude to tackle life again.
