We live in fast-paced and rapidly changing times, and sometimes our bodies and our minds just can't keep up. We try to juggle all the responsibilities of our relationships, work, and life, plan for the future, make sense of the past - and before we know it, our body is tense and our mind is spinning. It is normal to experience some level of stress and anxiety, but when worry and agitation become hard to control and start to interfere with our daily life, that's when it's time to seek help.
Some symptoms that suggest that you may be struggling with high levels of stress and anxiety include:
Persistent worrying or anxiety many things
Thinking of all possible worst-case outcomes
Perceiving situations and events as threatening, even when they aren't
Difficulty handling uncertainty
Indecisiveness and fear of making the wrong decision
Inability to relax, feeling restless, or on edge
Difficulty concentrating, or the feeling that your mind "goes blank"
Muscle tension or muscle aches
Trembling, feeling twitchy
Nervousness or being easily startled
Nausea, diarrhea or irritable bowel syndrome
How Therapy at Hazel Tree Counseling Can Help
Many people struggling with stress and anxiety will say things like "I've talked about this to so many people and it hasn't helped." Totally. It's true! We can talk to all our friends and family and, while that can be really supportive and important, it doesn't change anything. So how is counseling different?
The way I work in therapy is by using a mind/body approach. We take a look at how your stress and anxiety is showing up in your mind (top-down approach) and in your body (bottom-up approach). You may have heard of the fancy term Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT. That basically means we will look at what your anxious thoughts are saying to you, and learn how to talk back to them. We will also use another fancy term, mindfulness, to help you recognize where stress and anxiety live in your body, and then apply skillful ways to transform it into greater ease and relaxation.
