Get back on track and feel fantastic!
Almost everyone suffers from bouts of anxiety during their lifetime as it is a product of our in-built 'Fight, Flight or Freeze' response to real or perceived danger. We are designed for survival and the Fight, Flight or Freeze response came in handy when we lived in caves and were perhaps viewed as a meaty morsel by a roaming Sabre Tooth Tiger or some other fierce and hungry beastie.
In the modern world we no longer need to flee from Sabre Tooth Tigers but our natural response to any kind of threat continues to trigger the release of Cortisol and Adrenalin through our brain and body in readiness to Kill the tiger, run as fast as we can to get away from it or stand really still hoping that it will not see us.
To combat this response it is necessary to identify the triggers that cause the response and manage or annul them, but what can we do to manage this very natural response and feel better?
Contact me now or book you complimentary session to find the answers to this question and how to prevent you from making anxiety more of an issue than it needs to be.
Kill that Tiger, you can do it.
For many of us, stress is the single biggest negative feeling we have. Stress has negative effects not only on our bodies but on our minds – and it’s something almost all of us experience all too much of. Ask yourself honestly: Do I feel stressed?
Do you feel as though there isn’t enough time in the day to do all the things you want or even need to do? Perhaps you also feel as though your heart rate is higher than it should be. Maybe you’re lying awake at night listening to your heart thumping so fast in your chest. Do you feel as though you’re just about managing to stay afloat, struggling to meet obligations and deadlines? Do you feel as though you are about to hit the wall hard at any moment?
These are all indications of chronic stress. Stress in itself is not a bad thing and helps us manage our daily lives. Chronic stress, however, is a bad thing as it suppresses the immune system, raises blood pressure, affects sleeping patterns and your digestive system and ultimately makes you really, really tired.
Some think living with chronic stress is now 'normal' but we can manage it and feel better.

Firstly, I need to point out that there's a big difference between self-confidence and self-esteem. Do not, like most people, confuse these two concepts. They are not one and the same
The Essence of Self-Confidence
Self-confidence is your attitude and your BELIEF in your ability to get things done. This impacts your estimate of how likely you will succeed. This also affects how you feel when things don't go right.
Self-esteem, on the other hand, is all about your opinion of your value as a person. It is your esteem or your estimation of your VALUE as a person, who you are, what you're about, whether you hold yourself as a person of worth.
These are two different things. Your self-confidence is about your ability and indeed, your drive and determination. It affects how often you're going to keep trying until you achieve a breakthrough.

Self-esteem is all about your opinion of your value as a person. It is your esteem or your estimation of your VALUE as a person, who you are, what you're about, whether you hold yourself as a person of worth. When we feel loved and our needs are met, our self-esteem grows and our own positive identity about ourselves develops.
We are shaped by our environment and how we engage, learn and interpret the feedback we get from those around us. We come to identify our characteristics, abilities, needs, and feelings via that feedback.
We enjoy belonging to and interacting with groups such as family, friends, school friends and more recently, social media contacts.
If that interaction is negative then we can feel hurt, bullied, sad, angry and over time it can have a detrimental impact upon how we view ourselves and our Self Worth and Self Esteem
