Overcoming Anxiety

Are you tired of being plagued by feelings of anxiety? Do you find it virtually impossible to enjoy your day to day life, when you feel like you are struggling to simply survive from one moment to the next?

Perhaps you also relate to some of the following:

Are you too often overwhelmed, worried and tied up in knots?
Is it hard to control your worrying even when you know that it is excessive?
Do you find the anxiety expressed in physical symptoms such as headaches, stomach pain, shortness of breath or sleep problems?

The good news is that anxiety symptoms are treatable. When it comes to anxiety and anxiety disorders, research shows that psychotherapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because therapy– unlike anxiety medication treats more than just the symptoms of the problem. Therapy can give you the tools to overcome anxiety and teaches you how to use them.

As we work together to address your anxiety, you can expect to develop:

A breaking of the habit of stress inducing thinking patterns.
An ability to benefit from surprisingly simple stress reduction techniques such as mindfulness and progressive relaxation.
The cultivation of a more relaxed and trusting relationship to yourself and to the world around you.

You don’t have to live with anxiety any longer.

overcoming anxiety
My eyes are brushed open by ten-thousand lotus petals,
And I am awakened from the dream.
It is not Truth, but it is not far from Truth.
It is love releasing one small drop into the vast ocean of fear.
Turning the whole churning sea
Into a clear silent pool.
Breath in. Eyes open.
Breath out. Quiet heart.
The truth, a mirror.
The face, breath in
Enough, breath out.
