WHAT IS ANXIETY?
Almost everyone worries – in fact worrying can be a healthy response to realistic concerns. But if you find that you are worrying excessively, then this becomes a problem in itself. It can spoil your life.
You could be worrying about your family, your health or your finances. You may be anticipating the worst at every opportunity. Or you may be anxious in certain situations, such as giving a talk or a performance or meeting people socially. You may even have a phobia that you want to conquer, such as a fear of spiders.
HOW COACHING CAN HELP REDUCE ANXIETY
Together with your coach you can work out how to confront your anxieties in a problem solving, effective way. This will be a forward looking, motivational and goal-oriented approach, taking into account all aspects of your life – your thinking skills, exercise, diet, social life and what triggers your negative feelings. There may be an emphasis on perfromance anxiety, phobias, self-confidence or assertiveness, depending on your personal needs.
Most important of all – you will be given the tools to become your own coach, so that you can take control of your life in a calm and grounded way.
