Many of us spend a great deal of time and energy worrying about what ‘might’ happen. If you struggle with frequent worries about the future, your relationships, finances, or anything else, you are suffering with anxiety.
Anxiety encompasses feelings of fear, worry, anxiety and unease. Anxiety is general and unfocused, and it runs in the background of our mind as ongoing worries about what ‘might’ happen in the future.
Anxiety can show us that we have unmet emotional needs from our childhood for safety, security, love and reassurance. Anxiety can also point to places inside that feel personally neglected or socially rejected. Underneath our anxious thoughts live our fear-based beliefs that have been conditioned since childhood and influenced by the cultural climate that we grew up in.
These beliefs may no longer be true, in that we all have many more strengths and resources as adults than when we were helplessly dependent on others as children.
Write out a list of all the things you worry about. Pay special attention to "stories" that your anxious thoughts tell you. What is the worst you fear might happen in your life? Write a "worse case" scenario about what you most fear.
Bring your "worry stories" to your session, and together we can explore and heal the underlying beliefs and emotional conditioning that feeds into your anxiety.
With much care,
