Fear – The Silent Killer
While we can’t necessary control what is happening around us, we can control what is happening within us. We have about 70,000 to 80,000 thoughts in a day. But during a crisis with constant information we are probably creating even more thoughts. Let’s pay attention to the kind of information we are exposing our selves to. We keep away from people by socially distancing so as not to catch the virus, however we put no thought into surrounding ourselves with messages and people who might exacerbate the fear that we are already experiencing. If all the information we listen to is negative, we are creating fear within us. However, if we expose ourselves to positive and uplifting information, we experience peace and serenity.
Buxani Counseling Care is a mental health clinic that offers fear therapy for teens. Fear is a powerful emotion that can affect anyone, but when it comes to teenagers, it can be particularly difficult to manage. That’s where Buxani Counseling Care comes in. Rachana and her team of trained and experienced mental health therapists understands the unique challenges facing young people today, and we have developed a range of therapies designed specifically for teens.
One of our most effective therapies is online teen therapy. We understand that many teens are busy with school, extracurricular activities, and social lives, making it difficult to attend regular face-to-face sessions. With online therapy, however, they can access the help they need from anywhere at any time. This means they can fit their sessions around their other commitments and prioritize their mental health without sacrificing other important aspects of their lives.

Can fear affect your brain?
Experiencing fear can cloud your thinking as certain brain regions become more active while others become less so. For example, when the amygdala detects fear, the cerebral cortex (the part of the brain responsible for rational thinking and sound judgment) is affected, making it challenging to make sound decisions or think coherently.
