Anxiety or fear, if left unresolved can ruin the quality of your life. However, this does not need to be the case. Contact us today for Fast Effective treatment and learn the skills that will enable you to gain control of your anxious thoughts and feelings.
Anxiety is a tool that aids survival - none of us would live long if anxiety did not stop us from taking foolhardy risks. But, like anything else, excessive anxiety can be problematic and become as disabling as any chronic physical illness.
Features of Anxiety -
Feeling tense often
Finding it difficult to relax
Feeling tired a lot
Avoiding certain situations
Excessive fears and worry, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive-compulsive behaviours and post-traumatic stress reactions are all forms of out of control anxiety. If you suffer from one of these conditions, or if your days are blighted by continual low-grade anxiety, it can feel as if your life will never be normal again; as if something alien is in control of you. However, anxiety is not something all powerful and inexplicable. It can be managed very easily, when you now how.
If it emerges that there is a traumatic memory linked to the anxiety, then we can resolve this quickly and effectively using a visualisation technique during relaxation and guided imagery.
"Many of the anxieties that harass you are superfluous being but creatures of your fancy, you can rid yourself of them and expand into an ampler region, letting your thoughts sweep over the entire universe"
- Marcus Aurelius
"When I look back on all these worries I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which never happened"
- Winston Churchill
"It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live"
- Marcus Aurelius (121-180)
"Psychological stress is as much a function of how we see the world as how the world really is"
- Paul Martin
"There is compelling evidence that those of us whose world view is essentially pessimistic - regarding our problems as pervasive, long-lasting, insoluble and our fault suffer worse damage from stress than those irritating optimists who always look on the bright side of life"
- Dr Paul Martin (THE SICKENING MIND)
"If someone scheduled for surgery tells me she's panicked that day and does not want to go through with it, I cancel the surgery. Every surgeon knows that people who are extremely scared do terribly in surgery. They bleed too much, they have more infections and complications, they have a harder time recovering. It's much better if they are calm"
- Dr. Camran Nezhat
"Emotion as we know to our cost, is not always useful. We have come a long way from the Savannah's and what in the evolution of our physiological machinery was adaptive, has become maladaptive in terms of cultural and social development"
- Pat Williams
"If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man, sir, should keep his friendships in constant repair"
- Dr. Samuel Johnson
