Anxiety is more than “jitters”, nervousness and worry. For many sufferers, anxiety ultimately is rooted in a sense of being unsafe, out of control or mired in unpredictability.  If we peel back the worries, examine the distorted thoughts that fuel anxiety and panic, we find that people struggle with trusting that things will work out. They fear the worst, predicting horrible outcomes and creating potential responses to negative situations that haven’t yet happened. When clients slow the internal maelstrom to look critically at their mental scripts, we can work together to develop a plan to help clients recreate a sense of trust in the world. Through tools like thought stopping, mindfulness, addressing mistaken beliefs and exploring their spirituality, clients can begin to learn that the Universe will provide for them, that risks are worth taking, and that the outcomes that await them are filled with possibilities.
