I Recommend Sue As An Anxiety Therapist
Sue Waugh came into my life about 18 months or so ago when, in my desperation to do something about my severe anxiety disorder, I came across this wonderful website and therapist section. The disorder manifested about 10 years ago and since then I had been hospitalized twice and on countless medications, to no avail. Previous therapy hadn’t helped – either there was no connection or the therapist scared me half to death! Sue gave me hope when I thought there was none and I trusted her. Sue has overcome anxiety herself and promised me I would recover, too. Her manner is non-judgmental but firm, which is exactly what I needed. You, too, have to put the effort into your own recovery because no one can do that for you. But with Sue there to support you, you will find you can do it. Over time the anxiety will fade away…something I would never have believed when the first thing I thought about when I woke up and the last thing I thought about when I went to sleep was anxiety. With Sue’s help, I am now coming off my last medication and feeling well again.
One of my anxiety triggers was leaving my comfort zone. Now, I recently joined my husband on a business trip and flew thousands of miles. I can’t lie – I was very nervous on the journey but over the past few months have now travelled more and more, started joining various groups and being more active, doing voluntary work, and taking the emphasis off myself and my anxiety seems to have gone.
I am no longer having regular sessions with Sue any more but we are in touch as friends and if I feel myself slipping or have a problem I need some support with, I know she is there for me.
I can a zillion percent recommend Sue as a therapist and I promise she will help you feel better.
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.
