Anxiety problems

This fear based feeling has become very common and seemingly on the increase and has sometimes been cited a modern day epidemic, in some cases over it can seriously impact a persons life and ruin not just their mental health but damage their physical health. The truth is that anxiety is not just a simple issue, it can be very complex and take time to find an affective solution, if it was so simple we could treat it easily and no one would have this problem, some people struggle with anxiety issues like social phobias and non triggered panic attacks throughout their lives. Anxiety can be helped.

What is anxiety?

Anxiety can be a very unpleasant feeling that is a core part of our survival skills, it is actually very good at keeping us safe or preparing us for future danger, it reduces our level of exposure to dangerous actions or situations and helps us make choices to keep us away from future harmful situations. When I say harmful,  I do not just mean the threat of physical harm or facing danger, it will also include embarrassing or emotionally unpleasant experiences and situations, that can reduce your social or economical standing in society, the possibility of future loss can be very difficult to deal with, the anxiety felt at this time can feel quite intense, that's why many people feel high levels of anxiety when they are faced with the possibility of losing their job, or losing their partner or facing a possible difficult medical diagnosis or getting divorced.

Anxiety driven response

Any thoughts that raise your level of anxiety to a level that effects how you emotionally react is considered to be an anxiety driven response, this response is quite normal and everyone feels high levels of anxiety from time to time, but when the anxiety becomes over active just like an over active imagination, it can start to work against you instead of helping you. There is an important consideration to remember about feelings of anxiety, if they are actually relevant to your situation, for instance before someone gets married there may be some expected levels of anxiety, it can be judged as being a normal reaction the the situation. But if there are also future fears that may be well founded, such as a lack of trust in the partner, or unresolved issues with the relationship, it will be expected to lead to a growing sense of anxiety or even panic. In such situations the anxiety could be a valid warning that needs to be addressed, feelings of dread and/or panic can arise making you feel miserable, you may even start to show symptoms of depression in some circumstances. It is not always about the anxiousness but it could be about the choices you are about to make and by looking at what is real for you by talking openly it can help you discover if the fears are real or unfounded.

The architect of your anxiety? The imagination is probably a major factor in human evolution, without it humans would probably still be living in caves, all the major advances in the sciences and arts have been made possible by people using their imaginations to solve problems and create ideas and dreams. Our imagination is able to impact on any part of our life, from sexual arousal and confidence to relationships and anxiety .  Even our personal physical abilities can be either enhanced or reduced just by how we think and feel. Have you ever been scared of the dark or frightened by a film or book? Or been worried when your child is late home, then you can start to understand the power the imagination has to influence our thoughts and emotions and ultimately how we live life.  With help from online psychotherapy/counselling or hypnotherapy or as I use a combination of many types of therapy, it is possible to change the way you use your imagination or how thoughts and feeling effect your life. how we create images and thoughts are automatic and trying not to think of something can have the opposite effect, if I ask you not to think of a blue balloon you can't, as soon you read the words blue balloon your mind has provided you with the image in your mind, so if you had a fear of blue balloons your anxiety level would go up slightly, so that is why we need to understand how we think and feel.  So anxiety is not just a silly response but a complicated effect of several thought processes that include the imagination and any personal experience of fear, it also has a positive influence that helps keep us safe, anxiety stops us from doing actions that could put us in danger, like driving to fast or crossing the road without looking. So you could say that there is good anxiety as well as bad, the good anxiety helps keep us safe while the bad anxiety limits our life.  There are more in depth explanations that will explain in more detail the psychological and physiological state and the Cognitive & Behavioural Elements of anxiety but I hope this short explanation has given you some idea about your anxiety.
