I highly recommend Stacey to anyone who struggles with anxiety.
Struggling with anxiety and all that it entails sucks. There are no two ways around it. It festers and grows like a fungus. For me, it started off with a panic attack about 7 years ago. Terrifying would be an understatement. I continued to bear the brunt of an illness I didn’t understand which added to my life of panic and uncertainty. The weeks of anxiety turned into months and quickly the years passed by. Life had, seemingly out of the blue, become a painful struggle. The good times didn’t seem that good and the bad times sure were awful and often scary. I was an emotional mess when I found the Anxiety Centre in 2010.
Initially, I felt I could read every word on the anxiety website and train myself into getting better. The website was a huge help but unfortunately, wasn’t to be my only route. I made an appointment with a local psychologist who told me, “Chris, you need to get in touch with my philosophical side.” Was he joking? Seriously? About a month later, I made one of the finest decisions of my life. I contacted Stacey Ellertson for an initial phone discussion.
Stacey gave me the ability to breath again (literally) after our first appointment. My continued journey to recovery has been long, windy, exciting, frustrating, beautiful. I’ve learned more about myself in the past 15 months than in my 35 years prior. This journey would have been impossible without Stacey, my trusted advisor. Stacey has shown compassion when needed and held me accountable at all times. He has provided me with all the tools needed to move forward with confidence and balance.
I highly recommend Stacey, without ANY reservation, to anyone who struggles with anxiety.
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.
