Today I talk about navigating and understanding Fear and Worry.
Wow, fear and worry were my best friends for so many years. I think I have a degree in these two!! If you can relate to this, then this post will be useful to read as I explore this further in this post. It could really enhance your understanding of your own fear and how to reframe things in your rehab.
Ever since I was a little kid, I used to have this stress and worry energy and yes...I admit it.
For so many clients, fear and worry are 2 big elements that show up during rehab and navigating this and supporting my clients through this journey of change is important.
I find that it is so important to talk about the fears that are coming up for you:
- Where is it coming from?
- What is it about?
- What is the message behind the fear?
- And this helps so much to just talk about it before doing new talks?
- Because let's face it, fear is real.
We can feel it in our bodies and by not acknowledging this is just crazy because it's the elephant in the room. And this can be the very thing holding us back for making a breakthrough or real progress.
So it's about understanding what is the root cause of the fear and worry and what are they covering up?
- Is it the fear of the unknown?
- Is it the fear of moving forward?
- Is it the fear of disappointment?
- Is it the fear of what if I can't do it!
- Is it the fear of change?
And it took years for me to work through all the layers as an adult.
It is so important to acknowledge your fears, in the moment, in your sessions, if and when they come up so that we can support you more during these moments.
If this has helped you, then please know I have so much more to share in my 'Movers And Shakers' facebook group (it's free). I'd love to see you in there.
