There are many different types of anxiety that a person can experience, and regardless of the label, there will be a definite process of getting into and staying anxious that when slowed down and recognised, gives the person choice about their thoughts and inner images going forward. Working on this level is extremely successful when resolving anxiety.
The body can get stuck in fight-flight-flee, and welcomes holistic support to move back into 'rest-digest-restore' mode via the nervous system.
Generalised life or circumstantial anxiety
Strong fears - known and unknown
Trauma can trigger any number of physiological and psychological experiences that can make it difficult to feel calm and free again. When you are stuck in a trauma cycle, the mind and nervous system need a particular kind of support to allow the cycle to complete and resolve. We can help the body move through the process without having to relive or even talk about the trauma. The methods we use are gentle and freeing, and people tend to come out of the session feeling extremely restored, calm and complete.
Depression always happens for a reason. It is the body shutting down out of an inability to cope with something experienced in life, relating to the future or the past.
Depression happens when a person is representing a situation to themselves that leaves them feeling helpless or thwarted in a deep and unabiding way. It can be the result of a rejection, a thwarted expectation, feeling insecure, not good enough, inadequate, and out of this the person cannot see a compelling future worth working towards.
Depression can also have it's roots in biochemistry and physiology, it can even be related to ancestral factors passed forward. Working with a person on the causative factors and drivers of the experience, while also supporting the physiology with herbs, and nutrients, can help refocus and repurpose the person's practical processes that can bring choice and a compelling reason to move forward.
Anger is actually a symptom of emotion, rather than a true emotion itself. It arrises when a person feels they need to protect themselves, exert a boundary, or feels that their safety has been compromised. It is related to a suppressed fighting instinct triggered by a stressful situation.
Anger usually occurs after a person has felt
unimportant in some way
Subconscious Patterns & Beliefs
How we think, what we say to ourselves inside our own head, what we expect and what we believe, drives our biochemistry, and informs our experience.
If we think scary thoughts, we are going to create the biochemistry that evokes the feeling of fear. Unfortunately, most of the thoughts and expectations that drive our experience occur outside of our conscious awareness, and this is where Psychecology techniques can help.
Using holistic cognitive information processing methods, we can identify the drivers of unhelpful states or cognitive processing issues, bringing awareness to patterns, restoring nutritional levels, tweaking lifestyle practices, and support new ways of doing things.
Hormones also play a role in brain chemistry balance. Oestrogen and progesterone both have an important effect on the brain. Both hormones provide specific neuro-endocrine actions, affecting brain structure and function across a woman's life span.
Puberty brings hormonal changes that impact brain functioning in adolescents as well. And for men, hormone balance also impacts mood, behaviour and neuro-endocrine function.
When hormonal shifts affect the emotions and mood, it is highlighting what is already there to be dealt with. This is a useful opportunity to look at what is underneath the surface to be dealt with, cleared and resolved.
The microbiome is a vast population of flora that lives in the digestive tract that is critical to health and well-being. A symbiotic relationship exists between us and our gut bacteria, where we both benefit from one another. It is also affected by and affects our 'gut feelings', and is tied into our responses and reactions instinctively.
The health of the gut influences mental and emotional health through the production of neurotransmitters there, but it is also the seat of our intuitive self, particularly relating to the assimilation of feelings, relationships, experiences, oru place in the world and within life in general.
