As soon as I know I’m high up a wave of insecurity sweeps over, I sweat and tremble, I have to hang on to something. If I don’t shut my eyes I can’t breathe. 4. As soon as I look down my stomach jumps, I feel as though I’m falling, I feel sick unless I look up.

Clients can, for example, often employ terms such as ‘panic’ or ‘anxiety’ or even ‘thinness’ to cover a multitude of meanings. Or clients will use general phrases such as ‘I don’t feel good in myself ’ or ‘I like things right’, which appeal to a commonly understood state (after all, everyone likes to feel good or things to be right) but are in practice used idiosyncratically.
