Anxiety – Your questions answered


Anxiety Q&A

If you are a follower of my Instagram page you will know that I often do some live videos where I either talk about a specific topic or answer your questions. For those that missed some of my Q&As on the huge topic of anxiety, I thought I would share some here.

How do I implement the 3 principles into my life when my therapist isn’t familiar with them?

 The 3 principles are really about what it means to be human. They are not necessarily something that needs to be implemented into our lives. It is not a strategy and in this case it’s a good thing. The world is full of books and methods that can be considered a strategy and they do not always work. The reason for this is that the thing that really changes our relationship with anxiety is when we really understand what it means to be human.

So, it doesn’t matter if your therapist doesn’t understand it, it’s about who you are. It’s also important to note that of you are not getting what you need from your therapist, it’s okay to change. However, if you are loving your therapist it could be quite a simple task to introduce them to the 3 principles and explain how it increases your awareness.

What physical symptoms of anxiety bothered you the most?

The worst symptom for me was experiencing the sensation of a lump in my throat. I hated the feeling of not being able to breathe probably! However, over time I have managed to control these physical symptoms since understanding the cause behind them. These physical symptoms are our bodies' way of alerting us that something is not right. If we continue to ignore this, our physical symptoms will only increase. 

By no surprise, the symptom I hated the most was the last to go! The more I battled with it, resisted it and dreaded it meant it stuck around the longest! Think of it as your body desperately trying to tell you that something is wrong – until you listen it will only get worse.

I'm scared to open up about my issues because I'm worried about showing my true emotions?

The message that you are sending to yourself here is that being emotional, perhaps crying is bad. Therefore, you’re holding it in and it’s building up and up. There are multiple ways of helping yourself through sharing that doesn’t mean you have to shout from the rooftops. The fact that you are concerned about this means it’s likely that you feel a need to talk about it.

Please don’t be afraid to get emotional. Everybody cries sometimes! It is your body's way of releasing stress and tensions so allow yourself to let go with those that care about you. 

Have you got any advice for my irrational thoughts that are taking me to a bad place? 

Firstly, nobody should be accepting this as a way of life. This is something that nobody should be suffering from and if you find yourself being taken to a dark place, it’s time to reach out for help. If you are finding that your irrational thoughts are impacting your life, you need to reach out to multiple different organisations that can help you. Even expressing your feelings to one person can instantly relieve you of some of this thinking.

Are we overcomplicating mental health? 

The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all! 

Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief. 

Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
