Starting the year by releasing anxiety and building resilience

Can you believe we are already in February? It seems that 2021 is trucking along….the question is, how are you doing? Yes, the world keeps on turning, even if it looks somewhat different right now to how it did this time last year….How are you coping with all the changes that the last year has brought? Are you feeling resilient and able to adapt, to bend, to find your centre in the world as it is now? Or are you struggling with adapting to all the changes, perhaps having added responsibilities, uncertainty, etc? Maybe you’re feeling more like a brittle twig and that the next thing that happens may just be the thing to “break you”? We all have faced challenges over the past months. How can we release anxiety and build resilience in 2021? This is a time of opportunity for us to grow, to learn or re-discover tools to help us through this time. With the ease and convenience of online consultations and training sessions, there’s never been a better time to reach out for a little (or alot!) of help.


Below are my top 3 tools to help you:
1) Pilates and Mindful Movement:

Pilates is mind-body movement. We learn how to move our bodies using intelligence, breathwork and mindfulness. We build strength, endurance and flexibility of both mind and body. We finish each session feeling calm, centered, strengthened and stretched. Many of my clients view their sessions as a form of “moving meditation”.

If you’d like to schedule a session, please go here:https://calendly.com/drtoflynn/pilatessession

2) Phytotherapy:

Clinical herbal medicine or Phytotherapy is evidence based, personalised natural medicine using plants and food as medicine. Herbs have been used in almost all cultures around the world for thousands of years and it is still the most widely used form of medicine globally. Phytotherapists are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions and formulate a personalised prescription for each patient. The medicines we use are of the highest quality and more efficacious than many of the mass-produced  “over-the counter” herbal products available.Currently I am offering online consultations to my patients around the world. Specifically at this time, many patients are looking for support for immunity; recovery from illness; stress; anxiety; depression and insomnia. We know that we are living through a time of increased stress. This can have an impact on our nervous systems and on our immune systems. If you’d like some herbal support, tailored specifically to your needs, please go here:

3) E.F.T./Tapping:

Do you feel like you keep reacting to things in a certain way and you wish you could change it? Maybe you get angry, or withdraw, or lose sleep? Emotional Freedom Technique (E.F.T), also known as “Tapping” is a form of energy medicine or energy psychology. There are many studies to support how effective this technique is. It has many applications, such as PTSD and trauma; chronic pain; anxiety, panic attacks; depression; learning challenges and optimising performance in school, sports, work and life! It is a simple system using the body’s energy meridian system to help connect mind and body. What makes it so effective is that by uncovering the root of where an issue started, we are then able to “re-wire” the neural pathways that have been laid down in response to the original trigger and form new pathways. In this way we no longer are “triggered” or “wired” to react in the old way/s, but can choose new ways to respond to situations, and we can enjoy our life more fully, being more present and free. Right now many people are feeling so stressed, anxious, fearful, isolated, etc. E.F.T/Tapping can help you release these feelings and navigate your path forward.
