After finding yourself socially isolated and disconnected from the outside environment, you may feel anxious at the thought of returning to your familiar routines and responsibilities. This can trigger phobic reactions to situations such as social interaction, using public transportation, or communicating with work colleagues. Jonathan Conway provides life coaching by Skype, Zoom or telephone to help manage feelings of stress and anxiety, with an effective and safe recovery plan, without the need to travel.*
Many believe that agoraphobia is a fear of open spaces, whereas it’s far broader than this. Anxiety and panic attacks can be triggered at the prospect of being in a situation where you feel there will be no escape or access to somewhere you consider as a ‘safe place’. You may do your utmost to avoid all circumstances which would put you in this position, resulting in self-isolation and missed opportunities, personally and professionally.
Disruption to a customary regime may result in a lack of motivation and sense of purpose. During remote coaching sessions with Jonathan, confidence strategies can be introduced and any phobic reactions assessed.* We aren’t born with a phobia and this is a learned behaviour, often passed on by others or as a result of specific incidents or influences experienced in the past, of which you may not have any conscious awareness. Tracing the link to your fears and anxiety is an important step towards unlearning the subconscious prompts and overcoming the stress response.
Self-hypnosis is easily carried out at home or whenever your stress levels rise, easing physical tension and calming the mind.* Other relaxation techniques can also be applied, such as positive visualisation and simple breathing exercises to reduce anxiety.* These new coping methods will enable you to focus on future goals with renewed confidence to get your life back on track.* For more information or to book your session call 07956 855 027
