Podcast 54 Anxiety and Addiction with Dr Amy Johnson
March 14, 2023

Head and Shoulders of Dr Amy Johnson

Dr Amy Johnson has first hand experience of debilitating anxiety and worry for many years. Here’s how she described it:

“I experienced severe anxiety, panic attacks, and binge eating/bulimia for several years. I was told by many well-trained, well-intentioned professionals that these issues would likely be with me for life in one form or another. They could become manageable; I could learn to cope—but they weren’t the kind of things people just “got over”.

Thankfully, nothing could be further from the truth today.

Several years ago I came across a down-to-earth spiritual understanding of life that changed everything for me. It is the basis of everything I teach and write about. It is the foundation for how I help people end their own unwanted habits and unnecessary worries.”

The ‘down-to-earth’ spiritual understanding Amy refers to is the ‘Inside-Out’ understanding and in this podcast she explains what she means by the life-transformative message that, ‘We’re all sitting in the middle of perfect mental health’.

Amy now supports people in recognising addictive patterns of behaviour and thinking and she points them back towards their source of settled wellbeing. 

If you get up in your thinking, then you’ll be relieved to know that this is a human experience. Everyone experiences this from time to time. When you get caught up in thinking  Amy realises it is no big deal … it will move on …. there is nothing that needs to be done to get rid of it. 

In this conversation Liz Scott and Stu Newberry also explore the power of insights. In other words the inner realisation that seems to magically unstick us from habitual, insecure thinking.

Amy also shares how she helps clients to ‘lean in’ to feelings, rather than be fearful of them. This is a deliciously rich exploration and a must-listen if you find yourself at the mercy anxiety or addictive behaviours.
