Hi and Welcome, I’m Lawrence Gregory. Blogger and Anxiety Coach.

The question is: how can we take our power back from anxiety and panic?

I truly feel it comes down to understanding, acceptance, a change in focus and changing the way we respond to anxiety and panic. After suffering from constant anxiety for most of my life, all I wanted to do was heal myself from it. 

My Mission

Primarily my main aim with this blog is to help people to reclaim their power from anxiety and panic attacks. I value integrity so you can always expect to receive complete honesty about my experiences and what I have used to help myself deal with anxiety and panic attacks. Why have I gone out of my way to do this? Because I feel that everyone who is seeking solutions to overcoming anxiety and panic deserves to be presented with effective and honest information.

There is a lot of information out there in the world which is using outdated therapies and approaches for dealing with anxiety. This can often mean that many people are being innocently mislead and keeping themselves stuck in the anxious cycle by receiving inappropriate treatments and advice. 

My job is to provide readers with information that they can take away and apply to defuse their anxieties and live emotionally harmonised lives.

Important information: I am, in no way, stating that I am an expert when it comes to dealing with anxiety. I don’t perceive myself to be a guru nor do I wish to be viewed that way by others. I’m just an ordinary person who is passing on information and wisdom from what I’ve learnt to help myself after suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for the majority of my life. I fully hope you’ll get to benefit from the information I provide you with here on this blog. If you have any questions, feel free to send an email to lawrence.selfempoweredlife@gmail.com

My Experience With Anxiety

I must admit, I was always a shy child, always insecure about something. I did really well to hide the dark cloud for most of my childhood. Looking back now, I think I was an easy target for bullies in school because I was extremely sensitive and anxious. Even though I spent most of my childhood in an anxious state, it wasn’t until my teenage years when I really experienced intense suffering.

I think a lot of the emotional pain was built up due to the death of a loved one and a pet, this happened very sudden and my emotional wellness took a crumble.I was really shocked because I didn’t know what on earth was happening to me, it just got worse and worse. I stopped seeing people, I stopped visiting different places, even just speaking to people on the phone and texting people seemed pretty scary.

It was hell!I was even worried about trivial things, things which were completely irrelevant to anything, I just didn’t worry about anything like that before.People were really surprised about how I went from being active, energetic, talkative and enjoying life to being completely cut off from most things.I was in college at the time of my spell with high anxiety and I was really enjoying the course, it was a sport course which I was thoroughly interested in.

Eventually I just had to call it quits and leave the course which I was extremely frustrated with. But I just couldn’t seem to concentrate or cope with anything and going to college was terrifying, at least it looked that way to me.I also left two or three more courses which I was really enjoying due to my mental health issues. I think my issues got worse simply because I wasn’t living in acceptance of them and not dealing with them in the appropriate way. (I later learnt from a method which I’ll mention shortly that creating structure in your life drives out the anxiety).

I was just wishing the anxiety to be gone, like you would do because it seemed pretty normal to fight against anxiety. However this natural but totally counter-productive approach just strengthened my fears and made the clouds darker. My family were in complete desperation for obvious reasons and my dad looked online to resources which actually played a part in my healing from anxiety. I talk about these resources on this page.

Before I found the right help for me, I visited the doctors, mental health therapists, counselors, CBT practitioners, EFT practitioners, hypnotherapists, had talking therapy sessions and so on. None of these things actually provided me with a way to overcome my problems, even with consistent practice of the techniques included.Now that I am free from the core of the anxiety, It is like waking up from a nightmare, it’s finally over. Such relief to say the least.

Although I do still experience anxiety from time to time, it never develops into a disorder because I have the knowledge and tools to help me defuse it. Understanding that you are not alone when it comes to suffering from anxiety is a massive is reassuring. Understanding that anxiety and panic attacks are completely harmless is empowering and allows us to release a lot of fear.

I hope I have given you something to relate to. I know it’s scary, hard and lonely going through anxiety disorder. Which is why it’s always best to reach out to people who you can trust for help.I’m sure you will enjoy reading and benefiting from the information I create more than I enjoy writing it! Feel free to ask any questions in the comments section below if you have any inquires or concerns.

Many Thanks!

Please, feel free to reach out if you have any questions and I’d be more than happy to help out. My email address: lawrence.selfempoweredlife@gmail.com

      Really appreciate your kind words and that has resulted in giving me more motivation to help others.

      And it would be awesome to write a book because as I’m learning all this information through books, tapes, videos, other people’s experiences and my own life experience, I can mold it together and put it into a way where people can apply this life changing info to improve their lives.

And yes, you should absolutely write a book… start now! What are you waiting for?!?
