Anxiety does not discriminate and happens to everybody. It can corrode our minds and impact our everyday lives. We live in such a chaotic, complex and disordered world that we become threatened by situations that are out of our control. Our thoughts become fixated on what may happen next and we stop living in the now.
How did we become so anxious?
Most commonly it’s a traumatic experience from our past, such as our childhood, that hasn’t been processed or reflected upon. We have been led to believe that mistakes do not happen and perfectionism is the norm. People are reluctant to talk about their anxieties for fear of embarrassment, shame and rejection. This, in turn, creates a sense of powerlessness within us and debilitates us from functioning in our everyday lives.
I will enable you to minimise your fears of losing control from shame, embarrassment and worries. But to help you stand defiant and not let anxiety cripple you, nor refuse to be manipulated by it.
What I will do
I will support you to identify and understand your triggers. Together we will create new strategies for dealing with past and present life stresses. You will gain a greater sense of confidence and perspective about your unique and wonderful life.
