Getting You the Right Help with Waystone
Our brain causes us to respond to danger with logical, emotional, and instinctive responses. As a result, threats to our safety are not the only ones that might cause strong anxiety and panic. It is natural and understandable for us to want to get away from these anxiety-producing feelings as soon as possible because we are human beings who don’t want to suffer.
We often attempt to flee in ways that are ineffective or even worsen the situation. Suppression or denial of unpleasant emotions, distraction and lack of attention, obsession with other activities like work or exercise, television or video games, or problematic use of drugs, alcohol, gambling, or sex are some of the ineffective ways we try to get away from the unpleasant feelings of anxiety.
Reaching out to our psychotherapists at Waystone can be the stepping stones to change and an increased sense of optimism and hopefulness. With the right care, anxiety can be less severe and last less time, opening up space for more positive and fulfilling experiences and emotions. With anxiety, even a small step forward can often be quite beneficial because it can open the door to a new and improved way of living. Contact us today.
