Paranoia

Paranoia is a type of suspicious thinking in which you think that people are making negative comments about you, are following or observing you and, in its extreme belief, there is a conspiracy to cause you harm.

One recent study found that one in three people regularly suffer bouts of paranoia or suspicious fears. As we live in an increasingly competitive and insecure society these results are not surprising.

Most treatment approaches will involve a Cognitive Therapy approach, some social skills training and relaxation skills.
