    The Transforming Anxiety Tookit Part 1 is a pre-requisite for Part 2.

    Why this course?

    We often think that because we have looping negative thoughts; get lost in what-if scenarios, perfectionism, or self-criticism; or go down the rabbit hole of worst possible outcomes, that anxiety is primarily a psychological problem. And if the problem is psychological, then we should be able to use logic and rational thinking to manage it, right?

    That makes sense, but for most of the patients and clients I have worked with, it doesn’t work that way for one very simple reason:

    Logic and reason are simply no match for the physiological survival response that occurs when we perceive that we are under serious threat – the fight-or-flight survival response will win out every time.

    In my experience, there are two key components to beginning to manage anxiety, and they start with the body, not the mind.

    The first is understanding what is happening in your brain and nervous system during the anxiety response. The second is learning reliable tools to interrupt that response, calm your nervous system, and create a sense of connection and safety.

    A nervous system that habitually goes into or stays in “fight or flight” mode doesn’t need a “thinking about” solution, it needs a nervous system solution.  Which is exactly what Part 1 of the Transforming Anxiety Toolkit series provides!
