Grateful To Anxiety Centre And Sue Waugh

Hi Jim,

This e-mail is long over due. I have had anxiety for 30+ years (I thought I was bi-polar and never sought help in pure fear of being labeled with mental illness which is a terrible stigma in the USA). I knew I was going to break...rather I did with a full blown nervous breakdown, had to quit my job and I have/had EVERY anxiety symptom that is mentioned on your website, as well as feeling possessed as the energy in my body could literally turn off my iPad. I knew I had to get help. After research, it was your website that addresses all of my issues. I chose Sue Waugh. I was drawn to her with her biography, honesty and background.

From the first visit with her I knew there was hope. I cried through 5-7 sessions and she never wavered. Her kindness, calmness and understanding were the necessary tools that started my healing journey. For once in my life, I revealed my true self. No one wants to do this but it has to be done for true healing. She saw right through me. She identified everything that has destroyed my life and explained everything. She never forced anything on me but there is something about her that made me cleanse my soul as painful as it may have been to go through it all.

She has tools, skills, and intelligence that are far beyond any doctor I have ever seen here in California. I owe my life to her. I am not scared or fearful like I used to be. I was a tough case. I still am a little but I am completely functional, healed and humbled by my treatment.

It took a lot of work hard work on my part, but Sue told me to do the work. I followed her plan 90% of the time and I still do. Every time I talked to her it was healing medicine. I literally cry with joy after my visits with her. The whole world needs a Sue. I am through the worst and I will continue to seek counseling from Sue as I talk with her now to deal with new changes in my life that are not anxiety crises but life issues that only Sue can help me with.

I am grateful to the Anxiety Centre for having such an amazing professional staff. Sue Waugh is truly the most incredible human being and I will give references to your site and Sue for the rest of my life.

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.
