Anxiety is that hamster wheel in your head that keeps your thoughts running at full throttle. When worry works to get you to problem solve, that’s a good thing. When it becomes the overwhelming noise in your head, it has nothing to offer you except a load of fear-laden “What ifs…” Wouldn’t you like to silence that inner critic?
Anxiety comes in an alphabet soup of unwelcome flavors: Generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic, OCD, trauma (PTSD) and phobias–persistent, irrational thoughts that crowd out your REAL ability to reason. The toughest part to get your head around is these “worry thoughts” are not even real thoughts—they’re just pretenders. And let’s not forget that anxiety and depression are kissing cousins. Want some help from someone with a good bit of life experience as well as in-depth training? We just might be a good match.
