Some of the many symptoms of anxiety are in the image above, but there will be people reading this that may be able to add to it, some will recognise all and have experienced them, and others may just recognise one or two of them.
Therapy can and does help, whether it’s anxiety for a particular event, an exam or speech for example, or if anxiety is something that is taking over, social anxiety. BWRT®️ Is an amazing therapy that I do and it doesn’t involve hypnotherapy, some people are wary about hypnosis and hypnotherapy, which may be due to religion and beliefs or what people have seen on TV or in the media.
I have a blog on BWRT®️ and it gives more info.
People often say that anxiety is living in the future whereas depression is living in the past, where you need to be is in the here and now, the present.
One thing I find that helps to be in the moment is just breathing, I have a timer on my watch for breathing. It is either 2 or 5 mins and all you do is follow the prompts to breathe in and out. I have clients that have used mindful or meditation apps, a couple that have been recommended by clients are headspace and calm.
It can often take a few goes to find what works for you but please take time out and look after yourself
