Moderate Anxiety

A score of 20-34 on the CPRS Anxiety Test is indicative of a moderate anxiety.

Moderate anxiety is most effectively treated through a combination of therapy and lifestyle changes. Below is a list of symptoms commonly associated with depression.

If you have experienced these symptoms for a duration of two-weeks or longer, you are eligible for an anxiety diagnosis. For a thorough list of the different types of anxiety and treatment methods, please read our Anxiety Guide.

Anxious Symptoms

– Hyperventilation

– Heart palpitations

– Heavy sweating

– Restlessness

– Nervousness

– Feelings of fear, dread and worry

– Lethargy

– Insomnia

– Muscle twitching

– Obsessive thoughts

– Having difficulty maintaining focus

– Digestive problems / gastrointestinal problems

– The urge to avoid certain stimuli

Treatment Methods

If you have taken our CPRS Anxiety Test and received a score within the boundaries for what is considered a moderate anxiety, then there are several things that you can do in order to make yourself feel better. If you have experienced moderate anxiety for a prolonged period of time, your best form of treatment will be therapy.


Choosing a therapist may seem difficult given all the different types of therapy available these days. When it comes to dealing with anxiety there are two main categories of therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy works towards healing the symptoms of inner conflict whilst psychodynamic therapy works towards mending the conflict itself and freeing the person of anxious symptoms permanently.

Wherapy offers 1-on-1 therapy sessions to people suffering from depression. Our sessions are conducted online for a duration of 50-minutes and can be purchased in packs of 1-session, 3-sessions or 5-sessions. If you are interested in purchasing a session, click on the button below.

Lifestyle Changes

There are also different lifestyle changes you can make in order to combat anxiety. For those of you who score within the range of moderate anxiety, these changes may take time to implement. This is partly due to a decreased ability to focus. Implementing the right lifestyle changes in the correct way involves thorough planning and an improvement in mood may not be experienced for the first six months.

Example of lifestyle changes that can lead to an improvement in mood levels is a change of living and work environment, improved eating habits, a new exercise regime, solidifying connections to existing friends and family, getting to know new people as well as implementing a relaxation regimen.
