Anxiety is a normal emotion that we all experience. We as humans have evolved to be able to detect and quickly respond to danger. When we perceive a threat our bodies produce adrenaline and the ‘fight, flight or freeze’ mechanism kicks in. However, your anxiety has become a problem if you regularly overestimate danger and underestimate your ability to cope with it.
Incorporating Positive Psychology, Schema Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can be an effective treatment for many different types of anxiety problems, such as:
generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) or excessive worry
obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
I focus on looking at what it is that you are doing and thinking in the here and now, which is maintaining your anxiety. As a result you will discover how to change the behaviours and thoughts that are maintaining your anxiety.
