Is your stress and anxiety overwhelming you? Have panic attacks left you feeling as if you lost ability to control your thoughts and physical reactions?
Have you noticed your anxiety and panic attacks increase soon after a recent sudden and tragic situation? Or maybe a past situation that continues to be triggered, impacting you, your relationships? Has it led to Depression? An Addictive Behavior?
Negative memories and thoughts can be exhausting, making every task feel overwhelming. Soon you might find yourself hiding from everyone and everything. Almost losing a sense of yourself.
Anxiety takes on many different forms and is brought on by different reasons, different experiences. It may merge out of stress, a traumatic event, a difficult loss, or possibly a significant change in life or series of changes occurring all at once. But,
It is possible to regain control…..
Symptoms of overwhelming anxiety and stress is often temporary and is a result of trying to avoid or distract from something we don’t want to feel, remember, or look at. The problem with avoidance is that our reaction can worsen over time rather than improve. Learning how to move towards what is bothering you in a safe, non-judging, at-your-pace environment, will help you regain control and regain a sense of normalcy and self-confidence.
And this is how counseling may help you. You will be able to learn how anxiety impacts your body and leads to repeated panic attacks. You will have a space to practice effective tools that will help you gain control of it, helping you feel more confident in your ability to manage it. Finally, you can learn what may be triggering it in the first place, if you don’t know already. Once you know what may be causing your anxiety, you’re able to work through the underlying thoughts and emotions that may be driving it.
Life is not always easy, and we all have our bumps in the road. Sometimes those bumps are just longer or more intense than others and may need extra support to get through it.
Relief is possible, and we all deserve some peace, rest, and enjoyment in our life.
