”I don’t know how to stop worrying “

Our award-winning coach Kim Morgan gives advice to one women who is a non-stop fretter and in desperate need of some perspective

”I can’t escape the constant stream of bad news from the moment I wake up”

When Georgina* arrived for her first coaching session, she spoke non-stop for 50 minutes about her excessive worrying. She said that she had always been a worrier, but in recent months this had spiralled out of control. ‘I’m worried about everything, particularly world events. I worry about natural disasters, plane crashes, terrorism, Brexit, the environment, climate change, education, the likelihood of another world war, my children’s future…” Georgina’s voice trailed off and she shook her head in despair. She looked exhausted. ‘It’s a non-stop stream of bad news, from the minute I wake up. I can’t escape it.’

About Psychologies

This month we’re exploring how to truly have a happy Christmas. If you don’t have any religious beliefs, the holidays can be rather become a meaningless glut of overconsumption and commercialism, but this issue will help you explore how to create a different experience for you, your friends and family this year. And often it’s about kindness. Our interview with June Sapong explores how we can use kindness in our everyday lives to make the world a better place. One of our own relays her experience of finding the bravery and courage to start dating again. When a relationship goes sour, it’s normal to lick your wounds for a bit but how do we begin to heal and have the courage to be vulnerable and get back out there again? Ellen Tout takes us on that journey. Natalie Hourihan explores ‘creativism’ with author and entrepreneur Orna Ross and shows us how to connect with our ‘creative intelligence’ so we can design a life that works for us on our terms. The good news we all have access to this intelligence, we just need to know how to harness it!
