Anxiety Counseling

 

Anxiety feels like a trap that robs you of your joy and happiness. No one but you knows how anxiety has stolen parts of your life from you. It rules you.  As a result it causes you to miss out on spending time with friends and family. Similarly it robs you of the ability to have fun. Anxiety counseling will help you get your life back.

No one feels the dread, the fear, or hears the anxious thoughts you have. You feel your heart beating and you just want to hide. They just don’t understand how anxiety and panic make you feel lost and alone.

At first it was hard for you to realize really how bad it has become. Then you began to notice how the anxiety slowly snuck up on you. Feeling normal again and not worrying about everything so much seems so far away. Meanwhile you’re desperately trying to find a way to get out of your mind. 

 

Do you find yourself having some of these anxious thoughts?

I’m worried about something most of the time.

I always feel on edge and get frustrated easy.

Why am I laying here so long and not falling asleep?

Why do I always make a big deal out of little things? 

Every day feels like a battle. 

Why can’t I get rid of this uneasy feeling?

The racing thoughts don’t end.

I’m always wondering what people think about me.
