Anxiety Treatment May Be Your Most Important Choice Ever

Anxiety treatment is, stated very simply, about learning new cognitive and behavioral skills to assist in facing your fears.

Facing your fears can make all the difference in your life.

Why? Because fear is the cause of most of our struggles. When something internal is holding us back, you can bet it is fear. It can become a massive barrier towards seeking that which we desire and taking action. If we let it, fear can lead us to choose what we would rather not and avoid risk that could lead us to great reward.

In fact, I would venture to say that fear is the number one epidemic in this country.

What fears are holding you back from the life you want? Fear shuts down our freedom.

What is most fascinating is that most of our fears are not life threatening if we face them. Hence, it is reasonable to state that our fears are largely conditioned by our family of origin, our experiences, our culture, society, etc..

So, our fear often begins with false beliefs that we blindly follow - unless we seek help in gaining awareness with a focus on cognitive and behavioral change. This is the nature of anxiety treatment.

Anxiety treatment can make all the difference in your life and set you on a new path to great freedom and joy.

Panic Disorder : Why Continue to Suffer?

Panic Disorder is extremely treatable with CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy).

Unfortunately, for most panic attack and panic disorder sufferers, this is not common knowledge. This explains the panic disorder sufferers history, recent or longstanding, of trips to emergency rooms and to doctors trying to determine the physical/medical problem creating these symptoms. The general result of these hospital or medical doctor trips include lack of help, leaving even more perplexed than upon arrival, followed by frustration because the symptoms just won't go away.

And because panic attack symptoms tend to mimic real medical problems, the confusion continues. For example, chest pain, stomach problems, difficulty breathing, tingling hands, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, chills or sweating, etc. can all be associated with a number of medical issues and ailments.

Once determined that there is no medical condition, it is the time to get immediate help. Panic Disorder can be resolved!

Your panic attacks do not have to continue. In fact, progress with CBT can often be made in just a couple of sessions.

Anxiety: It's A Problem When?

Anxiety effects us all. In other words, anxiety is a normal part of life. Anxiety about career, family, the economy, a big exam, a date, etc. is part of being human.

But how do you know when anxiety is a problem?


Anxiety is a problem when it interferes with your daily functioning.

Is anxiety inhibiting your life in any major way? Is it effecting your work, your family interactions, your level of freedom to do what you wish, your ability to focus, your happiness, your perspective, your confidence? Are your anxiety-related thoughts or behaviors time-consuming?

Although this requires evaluation, if anxiety is interfering with your life by inhibiting your daily functioning, you most likely have an anxiety disorder, such as Panic Disorder, OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), Phobia, Social Anxiety, Agoraphobia, etc..

When anxiety interferes with functioning, you most likely experience some degree of limited freedom. In other words, anxiety can shut down your life.
