I have developed a Tool which records the client's feelings at the start of therapy. This enables me to measure the effectiveness of my therapeutic programme in a dynamic and powerful way throughout the process. This is hard evidence that my programme of healing and change really works. All it takes is full participation in the programme.
Generalised anxiety disorder (or GAD) is characterised by excessive exaggerated anxiety, anger, and worry about everyday life events with no obvious reasons. People with symptoms of generalised anxiety disorder tend to always expect disaster and can't stop worrying about health, money, family, work, or school. In people with GAD, the worry often is unrealistic or out of proportion for the situation. Daily life becomes a constant state of worry, fear, and dread. Eventually, the anxiety so dominates the person's thinking that it interferes with daily functioning, including work, school, social activities, and relationships. Often anger is an outward sign of anxiety and stress. People who suffer with Autism often suffer with acute anxiety and fear.
What Are the Symptoms of GAD?
GAD affects the way a person thinks, but the anxiety can lead to physical symptoms, as well. Symptoms of GAD can include: chest pain, anger, numbness or pounding heart, trembling or shaking, unrealistic view of problems, chills or flushes, dizziness, irritability, sweating, breathlessness, muscle tension, nausea, fear of dying, difficulty concentrating, fear of losing control, fear of choking, tiredness, insomnia and lack of quality sleep.
In addition, people with GAD often have other anxiety disorders such as phobias, depression, and or they abuse alcohol, drugs or have eating disorders.
Feeling anxious is something we all experience at sometime in our life. It is often related to a situation or event that has happened or is going to happen like a forthcoming exam, or job interview, it can be associated with work or relationships. Anxiety can even be caused through lack of confidence and self-esteem. Some level of anxiety or fear is actually important for survival; our bodies will react to situations where it detects there is danger or stress.
This reaction will release hormones into our body such as adrenalin, which will make the heart beat faster and carry blood to parts of the body that need more oxygen, allowing the body to ‘fight or flight’. These changes in the body help protect the person from dangerous situations. These anxieties are short lived because they have a limited time-span. However, due to the way some people interpret their lives … the things that happen to them, circumstances, people … they become anxious about everyday situations and circumstances. This level of anxiety often has long-term consequences, and is detrimental to the health of the individual. The level or reason for the anxiety is an unrealistic interpretation, limiting opportunities, and the potential of the individual.
What can you do if your anxiety is interfering with living a full life?
At Mind For Life we have a unique programme that has helped many people who were suffering from anxiety worry, fear, and changed their lives permanently. The corner-stone of the programme is the in-house development of the iCBT process, which is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. iCBT aims to help clients to deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by educating the client through structured workbook reading and written exercises. It provides structured education and the latest understanding on how the human mind works. iCBT includes unique techniques to control and eliminate negative thoughts, teaching meditation, and how to reset past traumas, providing guidance to beneficially change behaviour.
We do not have any magic formulas or special powers, we do not tell people how to live their lives …what we do is guide, teach, support, and encourage; if the client fully participates in the programme, then they will develop enthusiasm and curiosity about this Earth Experience, valuing health. Every person who has fully participated in the programme has created new opportunities in their lives … without exception.
