  The Two Levels of Anxiety Disorder Recovery
  What does offer that can help me overcome my anxiety disorder?

I believe there is an advantage in working with a coach/therapist who had to overcome anxiety disorder himself. But since I don’t live in Canada or the USA, can I still work with one of your coaches/therapists?

  Is anxiety disorder totally reversible?
  My doctor said that anxiety and depressive disorders are caused by a biological problem or chemical imbalance problem in the brain? He also said that this biological or chemical imbalance problem is genetically caused. Is this true?
  What is the best way to overcome anxiety disorder?
  I’ve been trying to get in to see a therapist where I live, but most have really long waiting lists. What do I do in the meantime?
  I've recently heard that several antidepressants are no better than placebo. Is that true?
  Another website said that anxiety wasn't harmful. Is that correct?
  Is it possible to have anxiety symptoms and not feel anxious or stressed?
  When is the best time to address anxiety disorder?

If I work on my underlying factors, will my stress level come down to what has been its normal level (which has always been quite high) or will it reset to a lower state and then that becomes the new normal level?

  Can regular deep relaxation (meditiation) help with anxiety disorder?
  I've been experiencing brain zaps and electric shock symptoms. I'm taking Xanax and heard that Xanax can cause them. I also heard that anxiety can cause these symptoms. Can anxiety cause these symptoms, and if so, what can I do to get rid of them? And should I stop taking my medication right away?
  I’ve been having a lot of symptoms, such as a tight feeling in my head, some tingling sensations in the back of my head, and I also feel like I’m trapped inside my mind. My test results all came back normal. Can this be anxiety? If so, what can I do to get rid of my symptoms?
  I’m looking for a good therapist. What makes your therapists different from any other therapist?
  I’m thinking of getting therapy from one of your recommended therapists. What is the best way to select the right therapist for me?
  What if the therapist I want to work with is not taking new clients at the time. What should I do, wait, or pick another one of your recommended therapists?

Why do your recommended therapists have different rates?

  I heard recently that dealing with addictions, such as alcoholism and drugs, could be dealt with the same way as anxiety disorder, since the underlying factors of addiction are similar to that of anxiety disorder. Is this true? If so, do any of your therapists help people with addictions?

For more information on some of these symptoms, see the Anxiety Symptoms section of our website.
