What's the deal with health anxiety?
Health anxiety is far more common than you think.
It's also potentially all-consuming and making your life far more restricted & anxiety ridden than you would like.
Health anxiety is when you find yourself anxious, worrying, fixating on and hypervigilant to your own health & physical symptoms and sensations.
Often this traps you in a vicious cycle of fearing and worrying about your health and then making yourself and your health suffer becuase of the constant anxiety.
You might find yourself:
- Constantly scanning your body for pain, symptoms & problems
- Googling and researching your symptoms and convincing yourself something is wrong (or trying to convince yourself nothing is wrong and failing)
- Going the the GP/health profressionals often; requesting tests and trying to find out what is 'wrong with you'
- Convinced that you have somthing wrong with you
- Hypervigilant - constantly aware of any niggle, symptom or sensation in your body
- Caught in a cycle of worry, rumination or intrusive thoughts
- Not enjoying life to the fullest because of your health fears
- Expriencing very real symptoms like digestive issues, headaches, brainfog, fatigue, dry mouth, tight throat, muscle pain and tension, joint pain etc
When you struggle with health anxiety you are living in a state of threat and nervous system dysregulation.

"I was just watching replay of the health anxiety course and wanted to write you! I dont think there is any more profound and comprehensive course on health anxiety available like anywhere! Not even on 1 on 1 therapy could one get more of a value. I am so deeply grateful for your work and your voice is really soothing I I have been struggling with health anxiety towards my child lately and must say that it gets much much worse that my own health anxiety... therefore I reached for professional help but actually no one here really is deeply engaged in this topic and they just classify it as regular anxiety disorder, prescribe some medication...I know I and only I have to do the work myself, so thank you so much for the valuable insight and tools." - Sonia
Hi, i'm Becks...
I'm a qualified counsellor, a coach, a 6 x best-selling author & illustrator and the founder of Journey to Wellness.
I help people like you go from feeling overloaded, overwhelmed, anxious & dysregulated to feeling supported, calm, resilient and thriving.
Why? Because I've been there too. I experienced years of chronic anxiety, panic attacks and a nervous system that felt frazzled and flustered. I've worked in mental health for over 13 years now and studied everything from somatic interventions to yin yoga, cognitive behavioural therapy to polyvagal theory, narrative therapy to mindfulness facilitation.
I'm here to distill all that knowledge for you to bring you mental health support and tools that are practical, digestible, accessible and just a little bit fun.
