How We Can Help You Overcome Anxiety
Anxiety disorders are the most common type of mental health problem (affecting nearly 40 million adults in the United States alone), and most people who suffer from anxiety do not receive treatment for it. We show people how to listen to their anxiety, befriend it, learn from it, and heal it at the root. Medication numbs the anxiety or attempts to do so. The interesting fact is that anxiety is happening for a reason and a part of you, deep inside, is trying to tell you something.
Do you know what is under anger? Underneath anger is hurt feelings. We were never taught how to address our hurt so many avoid it, numb it out with avoidance, substances, or staying busy, but the hurt remains. We then go to our shield “anger” to numb it out further, but is anger a good feeling? When you cut off your anger and you don’t address your hurt, you are stuck in the middle – Welcome to the land of Anxiety. Left unaddressed it can lead to Panic.
We treat Anxiety with tenderness, compassion, and dedication. Anxiety can become an ally by alerting you that something inside needs tender loving care. This approach is revolutionary and at the root of our Spiritual Psychology approach.
