myself thriving, and that’s so empowering! I’d highly recommend Michelle she’s amazing at what she does!"

Anxiety is a fearful state of apprehension, worry and doubt. It encompasses the thoughts, worries and feelings either behind or resulting from, a specific response or symptom. Anxiety can take many forms and sometimes its not clear-cut, as many symptoms can overlap, nut here’s a breakdown of specific conditions.
Generalised anxiety disorder GAD:
Overall feelings of anxiety which can’t be pinpointed to anything specific in a person’s life.
Obsessive compulsive disorder OCD:
Obsessional thoughts require the sufferer to carry out compulsive behaviours as a way of trying to clamber back control of the obsession and life.
Post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD:
Experienced after a traumatic event or experience. Anxiety is just one of other symptoms.
Fears and phobias:
Are specific to one thing and out of proportion, interfering with the person’s ability to live a normal life.
Sudden and overwhelming feeling of panic which can leave the sufferer feeling as if they can’t breathe and may die with the severity of the symptoms.
Symptoms of Anxiety:
- a sense of dread
- feeling constantly "on edge"
- difficulty concentrating
- a noticeably strong, fast or irregular heartbeat (palpitations)
- muscle aches and tension
- trembling or shaking
- dry mouth
- excessive sweating
- shortness of breath
- stomach ache and feeling sick
- feeling you’re going mad, are not in control of your body or are detached from surroundings
- pins and needles
- difficulty falling or staying asleep (insomnia)
"I feel so much better on a daily basis and if I start to worry, I have the tools to catch this and make a change. I am much more relaxed and productive as I no longer spend a lot of energy “putting out fires” and trying to motivate myself. Mostly I want to say a thank you to Michelle for helping me challenge my thinking styles
and perspective on things!"
