Anxiety, part 2

Recently the term anxiety has become a synonym for anxiety disorder, a constant and unpleasant worry of dreadful unreal events in the future, often accompanied by a fear of death. According to NHS statistics (NHS, 2019), General Anxiety Disorder affects 5% of the population in the U.K. One in every six people has experienced some form of anxiety disorder during their life. Anxiety is accompanied by physical symptoms such as tachycardia, tremor, hyperventilation, restlessness, fatigue, irritability and muscle tension. These symptoms can be so intense that they cause avoidance behaviour. People try to avoid situations or objects that trigger unpleasant psychical sensations. As a result, the quality of life declines which creates more anxiety. Because anxiety has been so meaningful to humans for so long, many authors have dedicated significant effort exploring its causes and trying to provide approaches for treatment. In my practice, I use an integrative approach adapting different techniques to a particular person. I get good results from working with somatic symptoms together with psychological issues. Sometimes I can also apply hypnotherapy techniques, but only from clients' consent. Our body remembers what our mind sometimes stores away. The sessions are conversation-based, but I use somatic help by asking a simple question, "Where in your body do you feel anxious?" #somaticpsychology#chigwellmums #lifewithoutanxiety
