I'm looking for a good therapist. What makes your therapists different from any other therapist?
Not all therapists are equal. There are many therapists who claim to be able to help resolve anxiety disorder. Unfortunately, many aren't that effective, and some may even cause more harm than good. It's been our experience that locating a knowledgeable therapist who truly understands anxiety disorder is difficult.
Nonetheless, finding the right therapist is worth the effort. A good therapist can make a world of difference not only in your recovery but also in how well you sustain your normal health once it is attained.
Anxietycentre.com recognized the importance of working with a knowledgeable therapist AND the difficulty in finding one. We also found that too many so-called “anxiety disorder therapists” provided ineffective therapy, leaving many anxious people to continue to struggle even after years of therapy. So in 2006, we began our search for capable and experienced therapists. The therapists we list in our Personal Coaching section are the result of our search. Each recommended therapist was selected based on a strict set of criteria.
For example, each therapist must have experienced anxiety disorder, must have successfully overcome it, and must be medication-free for at least the last five years. We believe personal experience with anxiety disorder is an invaluable asset when helping others.
We also required that each therapist be professionally trained as a therapist. All of our recommended therapists have attained their Masters Degree in counseling or above. We believe this level of training also is required to provide effective counseling services to those who are struggling with anxiety disorder.
In addition to their personal experiences and professional training, these therapists also subscribe to anxietycentre.com’s approach to identifying and successfully addressing the underlying factors commonly associated with anxiety disorder. They also have found that the approach we use is the most successful way of overcoming anxiety disorder.
We believe these recommended therapists are the “best of the best” therapists available today. So if you are having difficulty locating a suitable therapist, you may want to consider working with one of our recommended therapists. They have the right background and training to help you address anxiety disorder at its core.
Since they work with people around the world via the telephone or Internet phone, you can access their help easily and conveniently. This eliminates the problem of having to live near a good therapist. Choosing to work with one of our recommended therapists ensures you are getting the best help available.
Our desire is that everyone is able to access capable help, no matter where they live. We believe life is too short to waste years suffering needlessly, especially when appropriate help is available. Anxietycentre.com and the recommended therapists who work with us represent our effort to help others regain their normal and lasting health.

If you would like help choosing the right therapist from our list of recommended therapists, email us a brief history of your struggles with anxiety disorder and we would be happy to make a recommendation for you. If you’d rather talk to us about choosing the right therapist, you can either phone us at 1-403-208-0091, or email us your phone number and one of us will phone you. Our office hours are 9 AM to 5 PM MST, Monday through Friday. If you get our message system, leave a message and one of us will call you back at the next opportunity.
NOTE: It is our experience that therapists who have personally experienced anxiety disorder, who have successfully overcome anxiety disorder, and who are medication-free and have been for at least five years make the best anxiety disorder therapists. Since they have had to address the underlying factors at the root of their own conditions to recover and maintain their normal health, they personally know the way toward success. The combination of personal experience and professional training equips them with a powerful skill-set that benefits others seeking lasting recovery.
