WalkinTalkinTherapy can be a crucial component in the fight against anxiety and stress. Anxiety is a feeling of fear, unease, and worry. The source of these symptoms is not always known. Stress can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. You may have a harder time focusing, feel tired most of the time, or lose your temper more often. Stress may also cause sexual problems. It can also cause problems with falling or staying asleep and nightmares. While scientists have long known that exercise can temporarily boost serotonin levels and improve mood, the latest research shows it can have a deeper and more lasting effect when combined with talk therapy.

We all have some level of stress & anxiety that is often experienced as fear & worry. For some, however, the anxiety can become overwhelming. This may involve a specific stressor or an increase in life stressors, a phobia, generalized anxiety or even panic symptoms. It is important to identify what might be triggering the anxiety as well as any predisposing causes. I work with individuals to explore the roots of negative thoughts & beliefs & then begin the process of altering them. I also assist in sorting through ineffective coping strategies & replacing them with new & more helpful strategies. This process helps provide relief by addressing both the anxiety symptoms & the underlying cause.

I will show you how you make yourself anxious about the things you find threatening and challenging. Anxiety and stress are largely self-created by the beliefs we tacitly hold about adversity or potential adversity. I will show you your self-defeating beliefs and teach you how to think so you feel sensible concern and do what you can do to avoid danger and threats. I will show you how to philosophically accept what cannot be avoided and thereby minimize the stress you feel about what cannot be changed or avoided. Using the power of your own ability to think in a self-helping way I will help you to change your feelings of anxiety.

Anxiety can rob you of the ability to be at peace and experience joy. It interferes with relationships and your ability to focus. I will help you interrupt those racing thoughts or worries and to deal with them in a calm and structured way so that you are no longer at their mercy. We can also work to uncover the roots of stress or anxiety so that you have insight into what started those feelings and what may be triggering them. When you can understand yourself, you can begin to take care of yourself and control those feelings in new ways. Call me to discuss what kind of anxiety you struggle with and we will talk about what kind of help you would like.

In 19102 - Nearby to Paoli.

When we feel a loss of control, it can be scary and disabling. In my practice, I incorporate traditional talk therapy with mindfulness based therapy and yoga practices. Yoga and meditative exercises can help a person regain a sense of control over their thoughts, emotions, and physical body. Being centered within can help significantly reduce anxiety and symptoms created by stress. Take some time for self care and relaxation. I can help you feel more in control of your daily life, rather than feeling as though anxiety has taken control over you.

Anxiety can be paralyzing and our thoughts and fears can feel like they are running the show, but it doesn't have to be that way. With coping skills and a sense of security, managing anxious thoughts is possible. With techniques such as thought stopping and reframing, we can begin to argue and win the battle against anxiety. With support and a deeper understanding anxiety can be successfully managed.
