How quickly will my anxiety improve?

As we are all so uniquely different, the pace at which a person can reduce their anxiety will be dependant upon their own personal cirucmstances. For example this will take into consideration, the history of the presenting concern, relational dynamics, psychological difficulties, biology, physiology, including posture, nutrition and then the behaviours that a client may wish to change too. Anxiety treatment is tailored for each individual as it is not a 'one size' fits all plan.

How do you get rid of or overcome anxiety?

Both the brain and body respond with anxiety - these experiences can be identified psychologically with thoughts, physically with physical sensations, and behaviours that may include a position of stillness, freeze, panic and or avoidance: to move away from the perceived threatening stimulus. The general term used for these responses is the fight and flight response.

This response has been inherited from our ancestors who were often confronted by life threatening situations. The body undergoes a physiological and psychological response to these threats. In the ‘modern day, ’ we still have this protective mechanism, and whilst not confronted by life threatening situations like our ancestors were, situations can be perceived as threatening even when rationally they are known not to be. This can set off the alarm signals in the body alerting these physiological and psychological responses to take place, ultimately it is about wanting to be safe.

What you will learn is how to reduce the unnecessary levels of anxiety you have been experiencing, this can include psychological techniques, physiological techniques that activate pathways in the nervous system and if required learn how nutrtion, exercise and lifestyle choices all contribute to improving your wellbeing.
