You feel nervous and worried all the time. Your brain just won’t turn off. You overthink constantly. It gets in the way of your job, your relationships, and your goals. You find yourself stuck thinking about the past and planning for the future.
-Your friends and family saying, “stop worrying, there’s nothing you can do about it” or “let it go.” What they don’t understand is you can’t seem to let it go and just stop worrying. If you could, you would!
-Feeling out of control when an event pops up that you weren’t planning for.
-Having panic attacks.
-When you’re especially worried or fearful, your heart starts pounding, your breathing become shallow, and you start sweating more than normal.
-Making lists, lists, and some more lists.
-Laying down at night and your brain reminding you of all the things you need to get done tomorrow.
-Your heart pounding when you experience any type of conflict or disagreement- no matter how big or small.
-Feeling like your brain never stops.
-You may begin avoiding situations that you were previously comfortable in because you don’t have to experience the tension.
How LMV Counseling in Wilmington helps:
Our counselors help you identify the worrisome and fearful thoughts that drive the anxiety in the first place. We will help you learn your patterns of anxious thoughts and the reactions your body has to those thoughts. We help you gain awareness to these patterns, appreciate your emotions, and develop strategies to cope. We teach mindfulness as a tool to help manage your thoughts and boss your brain. We help you turn down the volume of your anxiety and help you feel in control again. During anxiety treatment we will:
Discover self-limiting negative beliefs (for example I’m not good enough, I’m not worth it)
Practice redirecting and replacing the false negative beliefs with positive beliefs
Review your progress session to session to make sure we’re on the right track and targeting your goals
We can help you- you are in the right place.
Anxiety can be overwhelming. Feeling tense and nervous all the time is no way to live. We can help, it’s time to make a change in your life now. At the end of anxiety therapy, you will feel more secure in your positive beliefs, have a greater sense of control over your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and increase your acceptance of yourself and those around you.
