Most of us know how it feels to be stressed, worried or nervous about something. Usually, these feelings come and go quickly. However if these feelings last longer and are more intense, you may be suffering from anxiety.
“Anxiety is a feeling of unease, worry or fear which, when persistent and impacting on daily life may be a sign of an anxiety disorder”. Mentalhealth.org.uk.
People with anxiety can experience a range of physical and psychological symptoms.
The psychological symptoms include feeling nervous, a sense of dread, feeling ‘on edge’, tense, or fearful, restlessness, irritability and difficulty concentrating. More severe symptoms can include panic attacks; rapid heart rate, fast breathing or hyperventilation and sweating.
The physical symptoms include dizziness, tiredness, muscle aches and tension, trembling or shaking, dry mouth, feeling sick, headaches and difficulty sleeping.
If you have a phobia, you’ll understand why you are anxious but there may be times that you are not always clear what you’re feeling anxious about. Not knowing the triggers can intensify your anxiety.
- In this online workshop, which can be run for individuals or groups, we will help you to understand how the brain works with relation to anxiety, how & why we suffer in the way that we do and how we can manage and control the anxiety.
- You will be given practical calming techniques that you can use on a daily basis and the workshop will finish with a 30 minute hypnotherapy relaxation which you will be able to take away with you and use after the workshop has finished.
- The workshop will be run either on Zoom or Teams.
