are many things we can do for ourselves to manage and reduce our
anxiety to take it to more balanced level and then move on to
removing the anxiety levels all together.
you need to be aware that the actual fact of taking action will
make you initially feel more anxious at first and even thinking
about anxiety can make it feel worse. Therefore it stands to reason
that a natural response to anxiety it to avoid what triggers it.
For example a person afraid of spiders keeps running away every
time they see one which only serves to increase the anxiety because
they have never challenged what is essentially an irrational fear.

because a person feels anxious is likely to reinforce the anxiety.
Therefore facing up to the anxiety and how it makes you feel can
be the first step in breaking this cycle of fear and insecurity.

been gained and something to feel proud of and it is important
to write this down in a private journal that I provide people
with. Here we include even everyday tasks such as shopping or
preparing a meal so when the person feels stressed and caught
up the anxiety feelings they can boost themselves by reminding
themselves of what they have achieved.
active helps us feel both calmer and stronger and so therefore
better able to deal whit emotional stress. Going for a walk, dancing,
playing a sport or even gardening equals activity.
we work together discussing problems with me helps the person
