If you’re struggling with anxiety, then you're likely all too familiar with the constant worry, the feeling of unease, the outright fear of something bad happening and the overwhelming physical symptoms.
I know I am…
Prior to becoming a therapist, I used to battle a Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). To this day I still remember how difficult it was to cope with it.
I was often given the advice “Calm down, it’s not a big deal”, or “Why are you thinking about this so much? Stop worrying, everything’s fine”.
But it doesn’t work like that, does it?
Anxiety is not a choice. It’s not something we decide to struggle with.
And it’s not a simple emotion either.
When we feel anxious, a number of scary thoughts race in our minds.
Physically we may be in a room where we’re completely safe but mentally and emotionally we may be someplace else.
For example, I may be in bed, trying to fall asleep when I realize that my friend still hasn’t texted me back. This is when I get the overwhelming thoughts of “What if she doesn’t want to speak to me? I must have done something wrong. Did she get offended by what I said yesterday? She’s definitely angry at me”.
Or worrying about a presentation I have to do at work tomorrow. The thoughts of “What if I totally mess this up? Others will think that I’m not good enough. I’m going to get fired and lose my job. How am I going to pay my rent?” can make me feel anxious in a matter of seconds.
Not only that, the mind is powerful enough to cause physical changes in our bodies.
So contrary to what many people may believe, anxiety is not “all in our heads”.
When we worry (usually about the worst things happening) we unintentionally trick our brains into thinking there’s immediate danger (even though it’s often imagined).
As a result, the brain activates our sympathetic nervous system to help us fight the danger, or to escape from it.
This is when we get the overwhelming physical symptoms of anxiety.
Increased heart rate, chest tightness, difficulty breathing, dizziness, stomach pain, shaking, sweating, and many more unpleasant bodily sensations.
Going through all of that on a regular basis is quite difficult, especially if you don’t know why that’s happening to you and what to do to stop this vicious cycle.
I want you to know that it’s absolutely possible to put anxiety behind you and start enjoying your life again. To gain control of the anxious thoughts, the worry and the physical symptoms.
And I’d love to show you how to do it.

Increase Knowledge and Understanding of Anxiety
In order to gain control over anxiety, you need to understand every single aspect of it. That way you become able to step back from it and take full charge. In module 1 you’ll learn: what anxiety is; what causes it; what happens to your brain and body and why; what keeps anxiety going; and what you should do to break free from it.
Engage in Helpful Self-Reflection
The best way to increase your self-awareness and identify specific areas for improvement is by self-reflection! In this program you’ll have the opportunity to engage in the Share Your Learning challenge where you would answer important questions after each video lesson. That way you’ll learn a lot about yourself, understand your reactions better, consolidate your learning, and become able to use that knowledge in situations where you need it the most.
Learn Techniques to Calm your Mind
Our thinking is powerful enough to cause anxiety and physical symptoms. That’s why it’s important to learn techniques to direct your mind towards more helpful way of thinking that prevents you from becoming anxious in the first place. In module 2 you’ll learn the most effective skill for management and prevention of anxiety - the STOP skill. You'll get the advanced anxiety-tailored step-by-step version that isn’t available anywhere else online. You'll also learn how to practice anxiety relief self-talk; and how to calm your mind through imagery.
Learn Techniques to Calm your Body
When your mind is anxious it gives signals to your sympathetic nervous system to activate the fight-or-flight response. This is when the unpleasant physical symptoms occur. In module 2 you’ll learn practical techniques for activating your other nervous system which is responsible for bringing your body back into a state of calmness (it’s called the parasympathetic nervous system). Those techniques include: diaphragmatic paced breathing; the temperature trick; progressive muscle relaxation; exercise; and grounding.
Use Your New Knowledge and Skills
What would be the point of learning something if we can’t use it in real life? If we can’t benefit from it straight away? You won’t be finishing the program empty-handed. In module 3 I’ll show you how to put everything you’ve learnt into practice in order to start seeing results as quickly as possible. You’ll get actionable steps and resources, which include step by step worksheets, summary handouts and meditation audio files.
By the end of the program you’ll be able to eliminate anxiety and replace it
with mental clarity, inner peace and self-confidence.

Here’s What People Are Saying:
During the Covid-19 outbreak I was referred to Izabel for therapy since I work in the healthcare sector and my anxiety unfortunately resurfaced. Since I had to wait some time for appointment she recommended I use this time to complete the program and get on top of my anxiety. I enjoyed her videos so much I got to know her and her evident passion for helping and teaching. The techniques are so effective especially the STOP skill and its worksheets. I started using it as soon as I finished the program and by the time I had an assessment with her my anxiety was significantly reduced. We were able to focus on other issues in therapy as a result. I’d strongly encourage anyone whose anxiety is standing on their way of peace and happiness to go ahead right away. Nothing to lose only to gain as they say.
To understand anxiety is to conquer it – I can now attest to that wholeheartedly!!!Before the program I had spent 3-4 years being anxious & worrying about what not. Didn’t get to the point of overwhelming panic but was difficult nonetheless. I just couldn’t shake this feeling off me & I tried many things believe me – counselling, running, social distraction you name it. My GP had said that CBT is the way to go so she referred me & I was placed on a waitlist. Meanwhile my wife saw an ad on facebook about the anxiety program. Didn’t think much of it, just went for it & completed the entire program in a day probably because it was so interesting to finally make sense of what’s happening to me. Felt quite hopeful toward the end and motivated to practice the skills for 2 weeks straight as recommended. I found myself feeling better and better each day. My wife told me I seemed calmer on the 4th day of practice. I saw how CBT helps you be in control of thoughts and feelings. After those 2 weeks I felt a heavy baggage had slowly lifted off my shoulders. I’m sure if I had measured my anxiety somehow before & after I’d see a massive difference. That’s how I feel the program worked wonders for me.
Hi Isabel. I’d like to give some feedback on the techniques and skills that I’ve learnt from your self-care program. When I first read and started the box breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and safe place visualisation I felt skeptical that something so simple would work. After a week of using these techniques I found that it helps to relax myself in situations that cause anxiety. For example travelling on a bus over the bridge would usually cause me to panic however after a week of practicing the techniques I used them when travelling and did not panic but felt more relaxed and not anxious in that situation. I’ve been doing the box breathing and progressive muscle relaxation for the past four weeks for about 10 minutes four times a week and it’s getting easier and quicker to get my body to relax and reduce physical symptoms such as feeling tense, breathless, clammy hands and racing thoughts. I only realized after practicing progressive muscle relaxation that I tense my face and shoulders when stressed! I’ve started to use these techniques automatically in stressful situations and find them invaluable. Thanks

Hey there… my name is Izabel Nedeva.
I'm here to help you get long-lasting relief from mental health struggles, as fast as possible.
Prior to becoming a therapist, I was struggling with anxiety. Generalized anxiety, to be exact. You know… that fear of uncertainty and the heavy mental work of worrying about numerous worst-case scenarios. I didn’t know this was a common mental health condition back then. All I knew was that I wanted to study psychology and learn more about human emotions. So I did.
During my BSc in Psychology I was introduced to one of the most effective therapeutic approaches in the world – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Learning more about this scientifically-proven treatment made me realize how powerful our minds are! How a simple thought of ’’What if something bad happens?’’ can make your heart race almost in an instant, and how another thought of ’’I’ll be okay no matter what’’ can make the world look a lot brighter.
All the knowledge I gained, almost surprisingly, helped me gain control of my own anxiety. Upon reflection now, I visualize this success as a gradual learning curve that effortlessly helped me build a strong healing mindset. Without even realizing it at that time…
So! As you can imagine it didn’t take long for another dream to be born (and later accomplished). Completing a MSc in CBT and becoming a licensed therapist specializing in the clinical treatment of anxiety disorders. Helping other people overcome what may initially seem to be an ’’ever-lasting’’ problem through the power of CBT.
Before creating www.selfcareskills.com, I was lucky enough to work as a High Intensity Therapist for UK’s National Hospital Service (NHS) in London, and to gain professional registration with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and provisional accreditation with the British Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
Today, I continue to work with clients on a one-on-one basis online. But I also strive to accomplish my biggest goal thus far: creating transformational online programs for those of you who aren't able to start therapy (or simply don't wish to take that step). So that you can learn the same scientifically-proven CBT knowledge and techniques others learn in one-on-one treatment. I can personally say (with a smile on my face) that I found my mission in life! I love designing and hosting online classes and programs. All I hope is that they serve their purpose of transforming your life for the better.Read More

The Anxiety Relief Program
As soon as you enroll, you’ll get instant access to the full program: all 3 modules, 26 video lessons , the meditation audio files and the practice materials. This means you can start using the anxiety relief techniques today!
Since this is a completely self-paced program, it’s up to you to decide when you start and finish. I’ve noticed that the majority of my clients prefer to complete 1 module a day and finish the entire program in just 3 days. Of course, everyone has their own preferences (and schedules) so it’s best to choose your own pace.
One thing I’d strongly advise you to do is to watch all video lessons in sequence (try not to skip modules or videos). That’s quite important since the program is designed to help you build up knowledge, just like we do in one-on-one therapy.
You will also have a lifetime access to everything (including the videos, cheat sheets, worksheets, audio files, and any additional guidance I decide to include in the program). All materials will be safely stored in your personal account. That way you can revisit the videos and download new copies of the worksheets any time you want...as many times as you want...from any device.
