Anxiety Counseling and Stress Management in West Hartford, CT
Some days, you wake up with your heart racing.
Other days, you feel so numb that your racing heart would be a welcome reminder that you’re still alive.
It can be hard to navigate your day, feeling this anxious, overwhelmed, and untethered, watching your responsibilities, commitments and emotions swirl around you in the funnel cloud that has become your existence.
You need support, but who would really understand?
You don’t trust that many people would understand, and because you’re functioning adequately in the roles you have in your family, work and relationships, no one has any idea how much you’re struggling. You’re feeling alone and don’t feel convinced that speaking up and being visible in this way is a good idea.
Everyone thinks you have it all together.
You’re competent, professional, perceived as strong and independent, and figure out everything on your own. You’ve been under the radar, maybe forever, and nobody thinks to look in on you because, on the surface, you seem fine. You don’t seek attention or ask for help very often, assuming you won’t get it.
Anxiety Counseling and Stress Management.
Lately, the anxiety and stress are just too much. For as long as you can remember, anxiety and being overly stressed are normal feelings, as are overwhelm, sadness and a tendency toward depression. The fact that now you are experiencing a big life change, such as a break-up, divorce, relationship problems, an overload of stress, a move to a new city or adjusting to college is just making matters worse.
You need change and you need it now.
Even though you’re strong, sensitive and conscientious, you’re struggling. You’re wondering if the things that feel like they’re crushing your spirit are able to be changed. You’re starting to ask yourself if this is the life you want and how you can experience more freedom, peace and empowerment.
