Anxiety can manifest as both thoughts and physical sensations. Sometimes our thoughts are fraught with worry about the past, the present, or the future. Our body believes what our mind is telling us so we start to have symptoms such as increased heart rate, chest tightness, muscle tension, and sometimes even difficulty breathing.

The therapists at Embracing Change can help with this. We can help you identify what is causing your anxiety, and how you can manage it more effectively.

We use strategies such as mindfulness, thought reframing, and cognitive defusion, which is just a fancy way of saying, observing our thoughts rather than being hooked by them.

Because anxiety can rob us from doing the things that we hold important, and that bring us joy and peace, it is so important to develop these skills. If you are ready to take that control of your life, give us a call today.
