What it Can Look Like For You

Anxiety can show up in many ways and can look different for many people. It can appear like a constant sense of worry that won’t let up or even make sense at times. It can come upon you suddenly and in the strangest of places like cinemas, shop check-outs or even just driving in your car. It may be the first thing that meets you in the morning, right in the pit of your stomach or may wait until the last thing at night and won’t let you go to sleep with its constant going over and over of worse-case-scenarios in your head.

It can bring subtle sensations in the body like shortness of breath, tightness in the gut or stomach. Others can feel their heart is beating out of their chests or it can show up as a heavy, nagging headache that won’t be dampened by the usual medications. Some people even feel tingling in their fingers and toes. But guess what? This is normal.

Even if you have experienced something that feels like an extreme panic attack or you fear that you are about to experience one, this is normal too and part of the Anxiety bag of tricks. And you don’t need to have all these symptoms I have listed here to feel that you might be experiencing something anxiety related. This is totally personal to you and doesn’t need any qualification.

At Prosper Avenue the first thing we will do together is normalise this whole strange experience for you. We will endeavour to bring a level of awareness about your anxiety (and anxiety in general), identify your current triggers and provide strategies and techniques so that you can begin to feel your sense of control returning. In time, as you get more and more to grips with your anxiety it will begin to loosen its grip on you, and you can get back the life you know you deserve.


For more information and/or to book a session please contact Prosper Avenue today and I promise to get back to you within 24 hours.

Kindest Regards,
