According to a recent review paper by the University of Cambridge, it is estimated that four in one hundred people struggle with anxiety, and that women and young people are the most likely to have anxiety disorders.
In fact, the review found that women are more than twice as likely as men to experience anxiety disorders.
In the face of such a vast prevalence of anxiety, it’s no wonder that this is often referred to as the ‘age of anxiety’, and it seems that existing methods of treatment such as anti-depressants and CBT are having little effect of the persistent high incidence of anxiety disorders.
In the short video below I’ll give you three of the best methods for sorting anxiety that you can take control of implementing from today.
How To Reduce Anxiety:
The dreaded anxiety can have huge impacts into many areas of your life. Recently I was talking to weight loss expert and Sky 1 presenter, Steve Miller about how anxiety can impact on your weight if you comfort eat to try and deal with those thoughts and emotions.
Steve asked me for the best strategies to reduce anxiety and start taking back control.
Fear of dentist and dental phobia:
Recently I had my annual check up at the dentist. Whilst I was there they told me how, earlier that day, they’d referred another person to me for help to overcome their fear of the dentist.
Judging by the number of people referred to me by dentists it’s suprising how many people are filled with fear and dread at the prospect of sitting in the dentist chair and opening their mouths – even for a check up, let alone for actual work.
So if you are struggling with dentist fear then read on for advice on how to overcome your fear.
