ABOUT ANXIETY AND PHOBIAS

While anxiety is the third most common condition I treat (according to people’s application forms), I suspect that it is actually the biggest client group. A lot of people discover at the course that even though they had been focussed on a different condition, the underlying cause of their problem was anxiety. Resolving anxiety allows their other conditions to resolve also. I have seen the vast majority of my anxiety clients dramatically reduce, or get rid of all their symptoms, usually within a few days, weeks or months. I follow up my clients for a year and have observed that people usually maintain these changes long term. I have seen successful outcomes for a range of anxiety conditions including:

WHAT CAUSES ANXIETY?

An ongoing elevated stress response in the body leads to anxiety, and anxiety leads to an elevated stress response. This becomes a self-perpetuating cycle for many clients.How it began in the first place is many and varied:

When people do this cycle often enough, they reach a stage where they worry about worrying, even when there is nothing going wrong to worry about. When they notice they are worrying about worrying, that makes them more worried…

HOW CAN EMPOWER THERAPIES HELP?

The Switch is a fantastic choice for anxiety sufferers. You will learn about the physiology of the stress response and identify patterns in your thinking and behaviour that are exacerbating the stress. You will learn techniques for calming the stress response and changing your thoughts. You will alsoidentify underlying issues from the past that are maintaining your anxiety response and release those as well. This allows you a very full and multi-pronged approach to eliminating all the reasons why you have been so anxious. If you don’t feel quite ready to jump into a four-day course, you might like to start with our 2 hour webinar, which gives an overview of mind-body health, the role of stress and thinking patterns, and some basic techniques to start using on yourself. This webinar is a general approach, rather than being specifically about anxiety. For some people, it’s enough on its own, and for others, it is their inspiration and lead-in to doing the full Switch programme.

HOW CAN YOU HELP YOURSELF?

If these suggestions fix your anxiety – FANTASTIC! If these very simple interventions are not enough for you, that’s OK. We have far more comprehensive techniques available at The Switch that will allow you to make bigger transformations.
