Are you a woman having a difficult time managing anxiety? Do you feel like it’s an unwanted house guest occupying too much space and time in your life? Anxiety has a funny way of pulling up a front row seat in your life and staying long past it’s welcome. It often looks and feels like excessive worry, fear, thoughts that just won’t go away, and panic attacks. Do you experience symptoms like intrusive thoughts, shortness of breath, a racing heart? No matter how hard you try to manage it, sometimes it just won’t go away.
It’s normal to to want to avoid unpleasant thoughts and feelings in our life. We often think if we can just stuff them down inside or ignore them, eventually they have to go away right? Wrong. It’s actually the opposite. The more you try to avoid, stuff or ignore…. the more power you give things in your life. The best thing you can do with the anxiety in your life is to first accept it and then get curious about it. I bet you may be wondering what that even means? Counseling for anxiety is very effective.
In counseling, I will teach you about how accepting something just as it is, actually opens up a new way of experiencing it in your life. We will dive in and get curious about anxiety and come up with coping skills, including how to manage those intrusive and annoying thoughts that come out of nowhere.
