Is anxiety always obvious?
Looking back I can see that I had high functioning anxiety but at the time I had no awareness of it at all.
You see I thought anxiety was panic attacks, heart palpitations, shortness of breath and shaking and I didn’t have those.
For me the anxiety showed up in other ways that I hadn’t recognised as anxiety –
An inability to rest
All of which I put down to other things or just accepted as the way I was.
In the beginning the anxiety was actually useful…
It was a driving force behind my success in asset management.
The anxiety motivated me and pushed me to be the best I could be.
It was useful until it wasn’t anymore!
There was a turning point where the anxiety that once drove my functionality, became too much and started to hinder it.
The more my functionality declined the more anxiety I had.
Eventually I reached a state of complete burnout.
Having been through this journey and come out the other side thriving, I now help women to recognise and understand the workings of their own mind.
I help them to kick anxiety in the butt and take back their power.
I help them to function at a high level from a place of self love and confidence.
