Anxiety

 

Do you often experience fearful thoughts? Do you lie awake at night worrying about your children, or that your partner might leave you? Or maybe you don’t feel good enough at work/college and fear you might lose your job or fail? Or perhaps health issues and fear of illness is what keeps you awake? 

Often we allow worries and negative thoughts to take charge in our heads and it can be difficult not to allow them to take hold. Our ‘toolbox’ of coping skills stops working. Often we turn to unhealthy coping strategies through binge eating, drinking too much, or distracting ourselves obsessively on social media, but these don’t work either.  

I believe these anxious feelings and thoughts can be a sign that something is wrong and they’re trying to tell us that we need to do something about them.  

I believe that seeking help to relieve your stress and anxiety is not a sign of weakness, but a basic human need which we source in order to thrive as human beings. 

By contacting me, we’ll collaborate and work together in finding ways to help you feel calmer and more grounded. Through active processing of these anxieties and use of techniques such as focusing, mindfulness and visualisation, you’ll start to explore what these anxieties are telling you and how they can become your friend and protector rather than your enemy.
