Melissa Tiers joins me today to share three anti-anxiety techniques, how anxiety is a habit, and why she gives clients the tools to understand their position and interrupt habitual patterns. Melissa shares how and why her anti-anxiety techniques work and shares a demonstration of each technique. She describes why quieting mental dialogue and language dissociation techniques help reduce anxiety. Melissa also shares the reasons why you should test change and reveals a bonus technique that will help clients deal with anxiety in the moment.
