Sometimes it is hard to know whether your anxiety rises to the level of making counseling necessary. Would counseling for anxiety with Empower Counseling make your life better? If you can say “Yes!” to any of the following 5 questions, anxiety counseling with Empower Counseling in Birmingham, Alabama could be very helpful to you, whether you are a teen, struggling to make a decision about where to attend college, a college student searching for you first job, or a young adult, thinking about your future. You might already be a professional, struggling to find balance and thrive. Regardless of the stage of life you are in, Empower Counseling can help you move away from anxiety and toward your best life.
So let’s get started. Here are 5 questions to ask yourself that will help you determine if anxiety counseling can help you.
1. Do you struggle with making decisions? Or second guess yourself after you make a decision?
We each have a finite amount of energy each day. If you spend most of your energy struggling to make decisions and choices about the little things in life, then you will have nothing left to make the really important life decisions. When something big comes along, it will be really stressful and you may tell yourself you just can not do it because you have toiled over the little stuff. If you spend too much time and energy making small daily decisions, Acceptance Commitment Anxiety therapy with Empower Counseling can help you know how to make quick decisions on the small stuff and the big stuff, which will enable you to spend your energy moving forward and achieving goals.
2. Do you spend much of your time in your head going back over things you have said and done around others?
This is another time and energy suck. You are afraid of making a mistake…being less than perfect…and it is not helping you have the life you want. It is keeping you from being your most productive and from your enjoyment of what is going on in the world around you. ACT for anxiety with Empower Counseling can help.
3. Do you spend time in your head worrying about the future? Anxiety Counseling with Empower Counseling can help.
I get it. You want to control what happens next in your life so you think everything through. Of course setting goals and planning for the future is necessary and helpful. But if you take it too far, and you spend too much time thinking about the future, it will keep you from taking action right now toward that future you want. Anxiety counseling with Empower Counseling can help you set goals but also to reach those goals by taking action right now.
4. Are you overly concerned with what others think of you?
We have to read others to be able to survive socially and in business. But once again, if all of your attention and effort is put toward worrying about others, you can not be accomplishing goals, and working toward what you want your life to look like. Acceptance Commitment Therapy for anxiety with Empower Counseling can be the answer to this problem.
5. Do you procrastinate?
It is normal to put things off at times. But if you consistently struggle with getting tasks done or getting started on big projects….if you constantly put things off or avoid them, then ACT anxiety therapy is for you. You are not lazy. You have anxiety, which strips you of motivation to get started.
