Defining Anxiety

  • Terri Newman

Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome.  This places anxiety in the realm of negative thoughts and feelings.

Everyone will feel anxious at some point in their life, when sitting an exam, when having a medical procedure, going out on a date, or attending a job interview.  At times like these, feeling anxious is perfectly normal, as is an awareness that it will pass. 

However, some people find it hard to control their worries and their feelings of anxiety do not subside and remain as a constant presence, impacting their daily lives.

Anxiety activates the fight or flight mechanism, usually resulting from a triggering thought or circumstance, or an unresolved trauma that has set off this alert.  Our fight or flight response is designed to keep us safe. 

A had a young client recently who presented with high levels of stress and anxiety around school and exams.  She wanted to be stress free around taking exams, to stop procrastinating and be more motivated to achieve her goals, and to not worry about people liking her.  She was also having problems sleeping.  We examined the issues and all her thoughts and feelings around the issues, then we looked at how she wanted her life to be without the issues, what that would really look like to her. 

After examining the root cause of her stress and anxiety and finding out the role and purpose of the stress and anxiety in her life, she was then able to release the looping thoughts and beliefs that controlled her thinking about her stress and anxiety.  She was then able to create and install new thoughts and beliefs of how she really wanted her life to be going forward. 

She made remarkable progress over the proceeding months, flying through her exams stress free.  Her confidence and self-esteem have taken a huge leap forward, she is now motivated about setting and achieving her goals, and her sleep patterns have improved dramatically.  She has also noticed positive changes in lots of other areas of her life, which she was not expecting.  Such is the knock-on effect of positive thoughts and beliefs.
