Doug And Anxietycentre.Com Have Been A Godsend To Me.

Hi everyone,
I thought I'd share with you all how has helped me.

I have suffered from anxiety most of my life, but a few years ago it became so bad I struggled with everyday tasks.

I was making frequent visits to my doctor. The symptoms I was experiencing were so frightening that I really thought I was dying or had some terminal illness. My doctor explained I was suffering from anxiety/stress, although he never really explained to me why all this was happening to my body...I couldn't understand how anxiety could cause all these strange symptoms...Oh! I should mention, I had brain scans, heart checks, blood checks etc etc.

One night I had been looking up anxiety symptoms on the Internet, and I came across I couldn't believe what I was reading, "This is me" I thought. For the first time someone understands what it's like to have this condition.

I became a member, then after a while decided to try coaching as I felt I needed extra support. I was waiting on my first call from Doug (my anxiety counselor), I felt so nervous, and I remember asking myself, "What am I doing?" I was about to talk to some strange man about my anxieties from the opposite side of the Atlantic Ocean that probably couldn't understand me anyway?? (I'm Scottish.)

Anyway, I had no need to worry as Doug put me at ease straight away. For the first time in years I felt someone could truly help me get over this. Please don't get me wrong. It's been hard work and I've had some blips along the way. It has been worth all the effort though.

It has been a pleasure knowing such kind and compassionate people who understand what it's like to have these problems as they have experienced themselves.

Doug Wildman and have been a Godsend to me. I will never forget them!

Take care,

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - we call these core causes the underlying factors of anxiety - a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
