Part of anxiety self help is understanding what kind of anxiety you have and what we know about it.

Special issues and anxiety

Often in my practice clients will come in with an issue that they feel is unique, only to find out it is a common one. If you think you are alone in your suffering and struggle, I promise you that’s not the case. It often can help you with your anxiety just to understand you are not alone. 

Here are a few pages on issues that my clients often discuss in therapy. Many people have anxiety after drinking, and there is even more of a relationship between anxiety and alcohol you should know about.  Many people have more anxiety at night and anxiety while driving. Another issue of the times that is relevant has been post election anxiety. 

It is also important for women to know your hormones really impact your anxiety level. Your doctor likely wont tell you this, because most of the research to date has been done on men. I will add the new research here as I keep up with it. Learn about menopause and anxiety and postpartum anxiety. 

What's all this about mindfulness? Can it really  help with my anxety? 

If you are confused about mindfulness let me demystify it for you. Here you can about strategies that have to do with mindfulness. Extensive research findings support the benefits of mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques (MBSR) for anxiety. Mindfulness practices such as mindfulness and self-compassion, and mindfulness meditation both have also been shown to reduce anxiety. You can also learn more about how mindfulness is used in therapy, and components of mindfulness. Practicing acceptance which is a mindfulness strategy is one of my favorite techniques that helps with anxiety. A lot of my clients think they can’t learn mindfulness. Don’t be intimidated, I promise you can do this stuff.
