Therapy and support for Anxiety & Panic Attacks
Do you feel stressed and unable to think clearly or positively and feel that things are getting too much for you?
Would you like to learn a set of techniques to bring you relief from anxiety? Would you like to be in control of your anxiety rather than the anxiety be in control of you?
For some people anxiety comes at certain high pressure situations, for instance when doing important presentations, at meetings or around certain people and then it stops until the next important event. For other people it arrives and becomes a daily problem.
When anxiety arrives it causes intense, powerful, scary feelings that overwhelm us so we try to avoid the triggers or situations that make it worse. However, it’s not always possible to avoid those situations and the more we try to stop or fight the feelings, the worse they get. If we think other people have noticed it’s compounded with embarrassment which quickly causes a lack of confidence.
Many people will try to “fix themselves” or distract themselves by doing other things which historically would have soothed and relaxed them but now they find that they’re unable to concentrate or focus which makes them feel helpless.
Our natural thinking mechanism tries to solve the problem and so we start to ruminate. Negative thoughts keep repeating themselves and the more we worry, the less we’re able to sleep, appetite is affected and quickly a negative cycle has been created which can lead to IBS, irritability, anger, headaches, feelings of failure and so on.
Stress affects us all but it’s how we deal with it that can make a big difference.
