Fear

How I can help with fear

Fear usually stems from thoughts and beliefs. I can help you examine your beliefs and face your fears. When you learn to (re)know these beliefs in yourself, you see where the fear is coming from. As a result, you learn to tolerate the fear and it becomes less severe. You become less obstructed and you can live more freely. During the sessions we discuss your relationship with your thoughts and we do exercises. Possibly we investigate where the thoughts come from. I also ask you to practice at home. The exercises are generally light-hearted and you do them at your own pace.

Origin of fear

Being afraid originally has an important function. It helps to recognize and avoid danger. We learn what is dangerous through experience or from others. If you have anxiety symptoms, you pay extra attention to what can go wrong. You are very preoccupied with danger, which makes risks seem much greater. Because of the fixation on what can go wrong you often avoid situations. This limits you more and more in your activities. Moreover, you become more and more afraid. I tell you more about that here.

Complaints

Many mental health complaints are directly or indirectly related to anxiety. Many forms van fear are unconsciously present constantly. Usually we have found a way to work around it so that we no longer feel the fear. We call this avoidance. In the end, this almost always leads to other symptoms. Often people get stuck because they are running (unconsciously) very hard from something scary. This pattern can lead to ongoing relationship problems, addiction, loneliness, or feelings of entrapment.

Panic attacks

When we are often afraid, we can become afraid of the fear itself. This manifests as panic attacks. These seem to come on suddenly out of nowhere. It often starts with hyperventilating and dizziness, where it feels like you are going to faint. This feeling is very frightening and can lead to agony.
