Anxiety Doesn’t Need to Run Your Life
Constant worry, worst-case scenario thinking, inability to communicate feelings and needs, digestive issues, muscle tension, troubles sleeping, and panic attacks are just some of the signs that you are living with anxiety.
When left unmanaged, anxiety can start to limit the way you live your life. It can prevent you from trying new things and meeting new people, and leave you in an underlying physical state of fear. When providing mental health counselling support to individuals with anxiety, Grit & Growth counsellors takes a holistic- mind/body approach.
While symptoms of each disorder range, if you are constantly worrying about the worst-case scenario, are unable to communicate feelings and needs, have digestive issues, have trouble sleeping, and suffer from panic attacks, these are just some signs that you are living with anxiety. Symptoms usually persist for six months or longer and, left untreated or unmanaged, anxiety and all its forms can take a toll on how you live your life. Living with an anxiety disorder is exhausting, impacting day-to-day activities and personal relationships.
Although there is no one specific thing that causes anxiety disorders, genetics, biological and environmental factors can all play a role. You do not have to go through it alone. When Deandra and Karli provide support to people with anxiety, they take a holistic mind/body approach.

Anxiety does not need to control your life. Deandra and Karli will support you on your path to personal healing and help you live a fulfilling life despite any temporary setbacks, struggles or past experiences.
