Anxiety, Depression + BodyTalk
"Is Depression and Anxiety taking you from your life?
Are you ready to Release and Reconnect?"
THE FACTS [source Beyond Blue]
Depression and anxiety are common conditions.
Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide. On average, 1 in 6 people [1 in 5 women and 1 in 8 men] will experience depression at some stage of their lives.
Anxiety is the most common mental condition in Australia. On average, 1 in 4 people [1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men] will experience anxiety.
In Australia, it is estimated that 45% of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. In any one year, around 1 million Australian adults have depression and over 2 million have anxiety.
While depression and anxiety are different conditions, it is not uncommon for them to occur at the same time. Over half of those who experience depression also experience symptoms of anxiety. In some cases, one can lead to the onset of the other.
HELLO + THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE!
I have spent most of my life silently suffering from severe anxiety and crippling panic attacks, and throughout the years have experienced depression and its debilitating effects.
While everyone is unique, therefore our journey is different, I can completely understand the hold such conditions have over our Life and our BodyMind.
At 54, while these conditions have taught me so many things about myself, I can happily say, I walk through my days and enjoy the comfort of 'sleeping all night' without any level of anxiety, depression or panic attacks.
Having tried everything from Counseling [for more than 26 years], Kinesiology, herbs, Integrative Medicine, Acupuncture, Spineology, Transcendental Meditation, yoga, food medicine, Ayurveda Medicine, vitamins, exercise, Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Bio Resonance Therapy, Homeopathy, Naturopathy and a few more! ... while they all had some level of effect on temporarily soothing and quietening my symptoms, my greatest results and my freedom came from a WholeHealthcare System known as BodyTalk ... a Healthcare System I now practice in Bathurst and Sydney.
As a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, Personal Trainer, Rehabilitation, Movement and Lifestyle Coach, I have the absolute honour to work with so many amazing people as they unlock the hold depression, anxiety, panic attacks, illness and stress has on their Life, Body and Mind.
The BodyTalk System offers a unique, non-invasive and supportive approach to searching below the surface of these often debilitating disorders to help to reveal the contributive factors and associations that may be causing the nervous system to spin out of control.
BodyTalk recognises the interrelatedness of the mind and body and understands the powerful effect that emotions, beliefs, memories, expectations, events and environmental triggers can have on the way that each and every one of your 50 trillion cells function.
Anxiety and Depression can be expressions of a complex web of influences including genetics, brain chemistry, personality and life events.
As a BodyTalk Practitioner I use a method of neuromuscular biofeedback to help to ascertain the story behind the symptom.
The BodyTalk System™ respects the fact that emotion, in the form of neuropeptides, may be stored in the tissues of the body and may be re-triggered by environmental factors in the home or work place.
When unresolved fear, worry or sadness is reactivated by a situation or memory, a physiological response will ensue causing the brain to react as though the distressing event were happening all over again. This can be a significant contributing mechanism in the experience of chronic or acute anxiety.
Situational symptoms can act as valuable messengers. A reaction, behaviour or physical symptom can be a gateway to revealing outdated beliefs, expectations and unexpressed emotions.
A BodyTalk session helps you to understand the meaning behind the situation while disassociating the old programming that has perpetuated it.
