Feeling Anxious About Anxiety
Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor
Things I used to think, feel and do before I saw what I see now.
Someone said to me the other day that they feel anxious about getting anxious, and I could really relate to that.
There was a time when my anxiety, overwhelm and stress escalated to such a level that I was hospitalised in my early twenties.
I remember not knowing what I felt anxious about, I had reached a stage where I was just purely anxious about getting anxious - and I remember well how that made me feel.
And there's a reason for feeling anxious about feeling anxious!
And it's that any amount of fear (anxiety IS fear) always comes down to the same thing, whether that's anxious about anxiety, anxious about our relationships, anxious about our children, anxious about our job prospects.
Whatever we are anxious about is all future based.
If it wasn't future based, there wouldn't be fear because we would know right now that we're ok.
One of the things that I share with my clients and members is that any level of anxiety always comes down to what I call the Three 'U's.
Unknown, Uncertainty and Unpredictability.
This is what one of my members said last week on our live Anxiety Clinic:"I first started to heal with therapy that was my fear of going back to where I was and scared I was going to get anxious again. Then boom found Sarie and The Membership and I knew that if I was anxious again it wasn’t unsafe it was me feeling my thoughts it took time, but that fear is no longer anymore, 2 months ago I had an anxious for 3 days but it was different this time I knew it would pass and guess what it did. If I was anxious again I know it’s me feeling and taking my thoughts seriously, I promise you will get there give it time and keep exploring with Sarie, be kind to yourself I was exactly where you were 2 years ago, you will find peace and you will be your true self "
We can get so uncomfortable with The Three U's, and we want things to be certain and predictable, yet there's so much opportunity and excitement in not knowing...

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.
