I really like this video on hypervigilance as it explains it far better than I ever could.
So much of anxiety is rooted in not feeling safe, even when we haven’t been able to recognise that is what is going on.
It takes work to ease the symptoms and reduce them. Of course, the paradox is that the more useful it may be to find a counsellor the hard it is to reach out to one.
I know how difficult first contact is. How difficult it is to express what your struggles are. I hope you can find the strength to get in touch so we can work on your resilience together.
