You. Are. Not. Crazy.
Our bodies are hardwired to respond quickly to unfamiliar and potentially threatening situations. Our stress response system goes into action for a variety of reasons, whether as a result of a large traumatic event or even lots of little events that happen over time. This survival response can be very helpful in small doses, especially when we are in a circumstance where we have to make quick decisions to protect ourselves and others.
Anxiety can take a lot of different forms. Here are some common signs of anxiety:
- Tightness in the chest
- Constant worrying
- Rapid heartbeat
- Difficulty breathing
- Difficulty sleeping or concentrating
- Feeling restless or lethargic
- Frequent headaches or stomach pain
- Feelings of pain or dread
- Perfectionism – a constant sense of not being good enough
We can help.
When treating anxiety, we look for ways to make this internal system work more effectively.
Our therapy focuses on increasing your awareness of these physical and emotional signals, developing tools to relax the body and mind, and resolving the situations which may still be causing your anxiety.
We will work with you to create resilience and challenge those negative thoughts and expectations, and to make the changes needed for you to move from surviving to thriving.
