Anxiety Counselling and Psychotherapy in London

Feeling Anxious, Panicky, Fearful or Tense?

Anxiety is more commonly characterised by increased nervousness and feelings of emotional discomfort throughout the body. What may occur at varied times is the inclusion of bodily sweats, increased heart rate, sweaty palms, a sense of loosing consciousness, a sense of dread, worry about consequences and the future, muscle spasms, hyperventilation, forgetfulness and sheer panic.

We have been taught that anxiety is a “fight” or “flight” response, which we associate with something dangerous in our immediate environment which prompts us to either face up to the situation and “fight” or run away “flight”. This is the general attitude towards explaining anxiety. In not so many words, this is not a good enough explanation in how to understand this bodily and mental occurrence which has such great potential to disarm us and make us panic.

Over the years here at Harley Street Psychology we have noticed that will all the clients that present with anxiety, there is a common characteristic which is seldom addressed by many other professionals. This phenomena is the actual reason why anxiety presents itself and takes such a hold on our thinking and bodies.

If you could picture anxiety representing an emotional cap within our bodies. Underneath this anxiety cap is a whole myriad of unprocessed emotions which we avoid.

We choose to avoid emotions because, emotional pain appears to be more unbearable than physical pain which makes us need anxiety even more than our desire for its removal.

We found that there was an unconscious decision made within the body that it would be safer and somewhat easier to deal with one main emotion (anxiety)at a time instead of a whole range of varied emotions equal in intensity. The body and mind collaborate and arrive at a decision  that prompts us to focus primarily on the anxiety.  This response is quite remarkable because the focus on anxiety comes with the knowledge that we will not die from anxiety or a panic attack–even though during a panic attack it may feel like we are having a heart attack.

Anxiety Counselling and CBT – The Harley Street Psychology™ Method

It is essential to remember that the core function of anxiety is to make us stop anything we are doing which may be causing the anxiety to occur. If we see that the anxiety is actually protecting us from any external pain its obvious that it is quite a useful bodily response.

The problem comes in when we have become so reliant on this anxious response used to protect us from the “dangers” of the world and then realise that this dependency is preventing us from living.

It is important to remind you here that anxiety is not an innate experience/emotion. Instead if we look at the source of anxiety being fear, we only have two innate fears in this world: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises–all the rest are learnt behaviours.

With this in mind think about how you have conditioned yourself to believe the anxiety and when you go to the source of the anxiety, all you are is AFRAID. Afraid to live. Afraid to experience. Afraid to fail. Afraid to make mistakes. Afraid to be embarrassed. Afraid to get close to people. Afraid to be hurt. AFRAID AFRAID AFRAID.

This only touches the surface of what is behind the anxiety but yet it is to highlight that if you can relate to any of the descriptions discussed then it is vital that you seek the appropriate help. Anxiety is one of the core difficulties that we work with at Harley Street Psychology and if there is any form of fear in your life then you are obviously not living your life to the extent you could be!

We are born with two innate fears in life: the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. Every other fear we encounter in this day and age is through learned behaviour and repetition. The problem is that the feeling of panic is very real and hindering you from living your life. Through the new and tried and tested methods we use at Harley Street Psychology we are noticing a trend in the immediate reduction of panic attacks in all our clients. These discoveries and techniques have a theoretically informed and proof driven basis for their usage, and simply put “we do not use anything that doesn’t work at Harley Street Psychology”.

Once engaged in the process from session one, you will already be on the path to experiencing a single day without a panic attack, then leading onto a life without any panic. Even living one day without a panic attack may provide you the respite that you have been lacking for a long time. This in essence will open the golden door to your ability to:

  • Face being alone without any irrational fear or anxiety
  • Leave the safety of your home
  • Make any plans away from home such as holidays
  • Improve and strengthen existing and future relationships with loved ones
  • Be at peace with yourself with no sudden fluctuations of anxiety or panic

  • Embracing the day from the second you wake up
  • Having the ability to be social, charismatic, attractive and talkative
  • Feeling confident and comfortable in crowds of people

You may be suffering from very real symptoms not diagnosable by your GP to be anything of serious concern, these may include:

Heart palpitations, tightness in your chest, pain when you breathe, dizzy spells, difficulty breathing and a sensation of closing of your throat, hot and cold flushes, feeling disorientated and detached from the reality of life, panic attacks or lightness in your head.

Do you find your life is engulfed with dread, fear and constant anxiety?

Persistent worrying thoughts that may not be rational, unrealistic fears of dying, fear of losing control of your bowels, fear of embarrassing yourself in front of others, fear of losing touch with reality in front of others, fear of losing total control?

Have you sought out help only to be turned away with unhelpful answers leaving you feeling alone and helpless with what you are experiencing?

Britain has only recently noted the severity and importance of dealing appropriately with mental health, and in many instances your own doctor may not know the most beneficial treatment plan for dealing with the anxiety and panic. Friends and family are a form of support but often a dead end in eradicating the problem. It can really seem like there is no one to turn to.

This does not have to be the case! There is immediate help! You need to act now and make that first step!

There does not have to be one day longer where you suffer. You do not have to surrender to the anxiety and panic. No more living in fear. You have the strength and power to beat worry, anxiety, depression and panic attacks for good.

You can regain control of your life and achieve the greatness that lies within you. Become the person you know you really are but have been unable to grow into this person.

Panic Attacks Can Be Easily Resolved

A problem with people who suffer from panic attacks is that they believe so greatly in the process and the existence of the panic attack that they can no longer see any hope or believe that their lives could truly exist without them. 90% of the problem lies in being able to convince you of the simple fact that your life has become tailored to include the anxiety and panic attacks that they are now common sense for you.

A key to pushing you to regain control lies in the way you have ranked anxiety and panic on your list of priorities. By being so focused on its existence and worrying about it 24/7, you are allowing yourself valuable time to create unnecessary habits and reinforce these habits making it harder for the anxiety and panic to leave. 100% of the people that come through Harley Street Psychology’s doors have not been able to unpick their anxiety and panic to the necessary level to truly change the habits and behaviors maintaining its existence.

This is why it is vital that you act on this now and not leave it for another day. We have one opportunity in life to live the life we want and you are squandering it on maintaining a vicious and unhealthy cycle that can be erased forever!!

It is essential to realize that there is no quick fix in life. Think about how much time and energy you have invested in perfecting your anxiety and panic attacks. You have spent an uncountable amount of valuable time on thinking, breathing, tasting and acting on this anxiety. We’ve all hear that we cant teach old dogs new tricks, but this is not true! You may not be able to teach old dogs new tricks linguistically, but once we change your thinking and behaviors all else follows like a charm.
