Fort Collins Mental Health Counselor and Life Coach: Safety Behaviors vs. Values

Today's Blog Post

Think evolution - without Safety Behaviors (SBs), the human species might not be here today.  Safety Behaviors can be both good and bad.  Within the context of anxiety disorders SBs is defined as - acting protectively when you do not need to - and they may create/feed anxiety.

People who struggle with anxiety, tend to use SBs more frequently, and mesh them with Boundaries (not values).  By doing so, the person develops a maladaptive behavioral pattern of disconnection vs. connection.  How?

Safety Behaviors disconnect you from you and reality 


Values create connection to you and reality

Our counseling-coaching style helps people become aware of their SBs, and creates new perspectives via a life value-boundary development process.
