Do you... worry a lot? Only accept perfection? Overanalyse everything?
Then this is the course for you. High Functioning Anxiety is when an individual has many anxiety related symptoms but continues to outwardly perform and succeed. It’s when the individual is excellent at covering up their struggle through achievement, and has perfected looking like they’ve got it all together by functioning at a high level.
If you experience any number of the following High Functioning Anxiety characteristics, then this course is for you:
- Excessive worry
- Feeling on edge, restless and ready to go all the time
- Being told you’re an ‘Type A Personality’
- High ambitions
- Constant multitasking and busyness
- Detail oriented and organised (you probably love to-do lists!)
- Difficulty sleeping and frequent tiredness or lethargy
- Over thinking
- Overly busy schedule
- Being known as the ‘go-to person’ because you solve problems and never say no
- Constantly living in the future - “One day I’m going to… Then I will…”
- Rumination (going over and over past negative or stressful events in your mind)
- Need for reassurance and detail clarification eg. checking directions multiple times
- Being easily startled
- Mental and physical fatigue
- Appear calm on the outside

Some of my journey with High Functioning Anxiety
For most of my life I overanalysed everything and the fatigue that came with that wasn’t recognized by a traditional anxiety diagnosis. When I heard about High Functioning Anxiety, the relief that swept through my body was palpable, finally there was an explanation for why I got good results in my life but felt on edge all the time.
The more I explored and learned about this little-known variation of traditional anxiety, I realized how prevalent I was amongst my clients and friends. I set about creating a specific approach to overcome the symptoms and create peace of mind – without feeling out of control.
This course allows you to take part in a beautiful community of other like-minded people who get what it’s like to love list making, efficiency and holding other people to crazy high standards.
My wish is to help you feel more balanced and grounded without losing your mind or ability to achieve.
I’ve dedicated my extensive career to television production as a Director | Producer | Writer and have a well-established passion for developing Presenters. In my 25+ years, I have encountered countless field specialists but none as profound as Tammi Kirkness. Tammi breezed in to my life as a ball of energy that would forever change the makeup of Karren Gail – a chick who ‘thought’ she was so on top of everything.
Hearing Tammi talk about High Functioning Anxiety was a light bulb moment that literally took the wind out of me … it was a mind blowing reversal of Master and Apprentice.
I was in a particularly difficult phase in my life when I actually reached out to Tammi for professional support. I knew when I met her 6 months ago I wasn’t ready but I also knew the time would come and when it did, she was right there. She gave professional assistance to a woman who was unravelling by the exhaustion of trying to keep the momentum of perfectionism on a treadmill that lost its mojo years ago. I was SOOOO tired. I didn’t even know how relentless my own need to self-propel this prophecy I’d designed for myself had become. I was literally festering in my own hell and that’s what kept me going … as I write it I realise how ridiculous it sounds but that’s what we do when we are afflicted with High Functioning Anxiety – trust me, I’m an expert!
Tammi Kirkness gave me my mojo back! What Tammi has done is allowed me to understand myself; who I am; what I need; where to draw the line and be ok with that; and yes, to say ‘NO!’ … something I never thought I’d say out loud. ‘No’ was a swear word to me for decades, it shows weakness right? WRONG!
What’s completely RIGHT is the fact Tammi has dedicated her life to giving those of us who punish ourselves in the High Functioning Anxiety space techniques to stop the rot, reclaim our lives and reimagine a world – at least I thought – was gone.
