Therapy for Anxiety and Panic
Worry. Fear. What-ifs. Stress.
Does your brain always feel like it’s running?
Does your body feel like it’s constantly bracing for something bad to happen?
Anxiety takes up space in your brain and can make you feel sick.
Worry thoughts often impair our ability to work, relax, and make connections with other people.
Anxiety and stress can make us physically ill which leads to missing work or fun activities.
All the what-ifs can be overwhelming and paralyzing.
Anxiety is not a permanent state of being, although it can feel like that at times.
Anxiety is something that can be managed and, with the right help, decrease over time.
It is possible to wake up and go to sleep without your mind racing and your body feeling relaxed.
It is possible to move through stressful situations instead of getting stuck on them.
Anxiety is important for us to feel. It is there to keep us safe.
For example, anxiety would be a helpful call to action if facing a saber-tooth tiger.
It becomes a problem when our brain isn’t correctly identifying dangers.
A paper due for class or a social event isn’t a saber-tooth tiger, but sure can feel like it to those struggling with anxiety. Struggling with anxiety can impact the way you see yourself, others and the world.
The world doesn’t need to be a scary place.
