If anxiety, stress, worry or fear has you in its grip right now, the good news is you CAN break free and feel more calm, more confident, and take back control in your everyday life. I can help.
As someone who has lived with anxiety, panic and self-doubt, I'd love to share with you what has helped me, and the many clients I work with, to break free of the anxiety trap, to defuse the fear, and develop more peace, joy, confidence and a more relaxed way of being.
Over the years, I have spent thousands of dollars on a variety of courses, trainings, text books, self-help books, sessions with psychologists and therapists to understand what was wrong with me so that I could 'fix it' and then in turn, help others. I wanted to never experience those horrible feelings of anxiety or panic ever again.
It's totally understandable why many people who live with anxiety will often try hard to avoid certain situations in order to never experience those fearful feelings again. This avoidance behaviour can sometimes be described as a "fear of re-experiencing the fear" and some people can start "feeling anxious about feeling anxious".
However, the goal to try hard to avoid experiencing those fearful feelings again is actually unhelpful, unrealistic and also forms part of the problem. It can actually hold the problem in place. The fear response is an essential part of our survival system and is as normal and natural as breathing. Without it, our ancestors would not have survived.
The goal is, therefore, to restore a natural healthy balance to the nervous system, so we can live our lives with more calm, joy and hope, yet still respond appropriately in those times of real danger, when we need to take action, or when a healthy change is needed.
As everyone is unique and individual, there is no magical 'One Size Fits All' approach to dealing successfully with anxiety and stress. It's identifying your unique triggers, finding what works best for you, and then resetting your overstressed, overzealous alarm system. Drawing from the most effective evidence-based techniques, therapies and strategies that I've found from a wide variety of methodologies, we work together so that you no longer feel trapped by unwanted thoughts, feelings, behaviours or beliefs.
Whether you struggle with Chronic Stress, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), Performance Anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Panic Disorder, Health Anxiety, or any other label, my goal is still the same.
My goal is to help you feel SAFE. And we do this by addressing 4 key areas:
Four sessions may be all you will need to get you back on track and feeling more calm and balanced again. You can expect to notice a relaxed difference from the very first session.
