What does recovery mean?
Recovery means much more than just being free of anxiety, it also means personal growth, self confidence and self awareness. We can learn an awful lot about ourselves.
One of the worst things is we don’t feel in control of our lives. Anxiety can make you feel helpless. Getting better comes from within yourself, no one can do that for you, but you all have courage and the strength to deal with anxiety. If you can cope with the symptoms day in and day out you can work at getting better.
Recovery always involves a series of ups and downs for everyone. What you can do one day you find you can’t do it the next day. Try and accept that as a bad day, after all everyone has bad days not just anxiety sufferers.
Set backs begin to get less and less and it is important to realize that you don’t go back to square one. If you have had a setback you must have been recovering.
You can’t hurry recovery it will take as long as it takes, but every time you are trying you are winning. If you give up then you won’t get better.
It is hard to achieve to start recovering on your own so let No Panic help you.
Our recovery course is for 12 weeks with a trained leader. The groups are made up with anxiety sufferers similar to yourself so you will not feel so isolated. Besides making friends the group will work on anxiety management. Relaxation and breathing techniques are the foundation of getting better and helps break the cycle of tension, symptoms and fear. It gives a person control and this helps boost your confidence in your ability to face your particular problem.
The body and mind are very much linked together. Do you think negative irrational thoughts? How do they contribute towards anxiety? If thoughts are negative your body doesn’t know if a thought is true or false and will react to how you are thinking. The group works on Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Cognitive Therapy is changing the way we think and Behaviour Therapy is working on goals that will help you face your fear in small steps.
If however you are unable to manage to do a group we offer a trained one to one person to help give you support and learn how to help yourself.
