Overcome Anxiety

A Natural, Holistic, Trauma-Informed Approach

 

Personal Experience

The Overcome Anxiety Clinic is an eight-week program designed for those who suffer from anxiety; GAD, Panic Disorder, PTSD. Even though it is taught in a group setting, this is a personal experience; there are no group activities and you will never be asked to speak publicly. Presentations are given with visual aids, and all work is private. The utmost care and attention is given to accommodate those that are not  comfortable in social situations.

 

Knowledge is power

Our focus is education. The Overcome Anxiety Clinic includes a step-by-step process to create your own self-healing program, to practice daily, in your own home over an 8 week time period (and  beyond). The information given in each meeting is intended to be worked  through in the two weeks between sessions. A daily commitment is required to defeat anxiety – it is not a quick fix because we go to the root of the problem – programming errors in our nervous systems. We sense danger when none is around – typically the residue of past experiences that are locked into a mind/body connection that continues to elicit warnings that stress our nervous systems and have debilitating symptoms. You CAN change this!

 

How it works

We provide you with a workbook, a booklet with educational support information if you want to dig-in deeper, audio recordings with guided practices, sequence sheets, and a self-regulation toolbox to help you uncover your inner power and gain control over a run away nervous system.

You will be introduced to a neuropsychological explanation of triggers, what is happening internally when triggered, and the process of reprogramming our responses to get rid of triggers. Conscious use of self-healing tools are profoundly liberating when combating the debilitating effects of anxiety and feelings of being stuck.

Tools for Self-Regulation

More often than not, people who experience chronic dysregulation have compromised bodily awareness and a sense of being out of control of their body/mind. In the first class we jump right in to tools to “down-regulate” the fight or flight response or to “up-regulate” feelings of being shut down, and how to “turn on” the relaxation response. These are tools for managing difficult moments as we work on the long-term project of re-programing our neural networks to break triggers, regain control of our nervous system and our inner peace circuitry.


A take-home program with daily exercises and lifestyle suggestions will be handed out as well as a guided meditation mp3s. The combination of the methods that we explore are very powerful. Yoga Therapy is a blend of traditional Yoga practices, Ayurveda, Alternative Medicine, and modern medical science. We will also explore nutrition, aromatherapy (unless  someone in class has EO sensitivities), acupressure, sound healing and  movement. The more you know about anxiety and how to defeat it, the more  empowered you become to drive your own self-healing journey. Not all  methods work for everyone, but there is one or more methods that will  work for all. If you have any questions, please email fivebodywellness@gmail.com
