About Fear and Anxiety

You are a sentient being, hard-wired to be on the lookout for danger to your safety and security. Your nervous system is designed to keep you safe and alive, which means your fight/flight/freeze mechanism goes into high alert when you perceive a real or even imagined threat. In our modern world, you may be constantly bombarded with highly stressful situations, images or people that activate your threat-detection system and keep it running at a chronic and unhealthy level. Whether your anxiety is related to work, relationships, ruminating about the past or future, fear of death or public speaking, mindfulness-based therapy can be very helpful to learn how to reduce your worrying and manage your fears so that you can get back to living your life with more ease and purpose.
