According to a report from the University of Cambridge report. More than 8 million people in the UK suffer some sort of anxiety disorder and women are more susceptible to it than men.
Anxiety is caused by a build-up of stress hormones, which have no other way to go then to turn into anxiety. As anxiety leaves you powerless, it leads often to an anxiety about the anxiety. A vicious circle.
Elements that also adds to the vicious circle are shame and not feeling understood by others. Plus telling yourself it is ridiculous to feel like this doesn’t help either.

Anxiety was keeping me at home
‘Your session has changed my life. I sleep like a baby and feeling so much better. I haven’t had any more of my weird anxiety episodes. When I feel something coming up, I do your one minute and it goes. It helped me so much more than the Headspace app. I feel positive and can’t thank you enough’ – Cathy, 37, Surrey
