Wow! who would have imagined this time we are in with business shut down, the threat of severe illness with every interaction and no idea when it will end. If you did not have symptoms of stress and anxiety before I am sure you are experiencing them now. Over 21 percent of adults will have diagnosable anxiety in a given year. That is 42.5 million people! and that is in normal times. Imagine what that number must be now.
Stress and anxiety affects our body (heart palpitations, nausea, headaches, etc), our thoughts (worry, what if thinking, self doubt, “spaciness”, irritation, etc) and Behavior (startle easy, avoidance of people and places, short fuse, etc). All of these symptoms of stress and anxiety are disruptive to your life both personally as well as affecting your relationships, especially now that we are quarantined in our homes with very few options for distraction and no real end in site.
There are some very helpful things you can do to help cope in these unusual times. Thanks to technology we can still reach out for help from wherever we are hold up. I am an MSW clinical Social Worker as well as an ICF Certified Coach.
If you need help I am offering coaching and counseling sessions via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime. This way you will be able to get the support you need from the comfort of your home while still meeting with me face to face. I have over 30 years of experience counseling and coaching individuals, couples and groups. If you or someone you know could use some help and someone to talk to I am offering my Coaching and Counseling services via live video sessions and would welcome the opportunity to offer you support. Couples focused coaching is available as well.
Sessions are 30 minutes long and I am offering them at half price during this crisis, $50 for 30 minute session. If you would like some help contact me at 812-345-7519 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information and scheduling.
