First off, let me say Thank You, Thank You , Thank You. I know it is only by the grace of God that I found the Anxietycentre website. I read the information and started implementing the self help work on my own. After a few weeks it was clear to me that I needed more help to uncover the underlying factors that attributed to my anxiety. It was hard to admit and accept but I knew that I was impeding my own recovery.
Having spoken to a therapist locally with no results but the continued offer of medication, I was reluctant and unsure what, if any help counseling would be. I called in and was set up with my initial appointment with Sue Waugh. Sue was exactly the personality that I needed. It was a relief to know that she knew exactly what I was experiencing and reassuring to know that she and all the other anxiety counselors at Anxiety Center had experienced and conquered anxiety. If anyone had the answers, it had to be her.
It has been several months. I look back now and don’t even recognize the person I was. I have grown more in the last several months than I could ever imagine. My road was not easy. It was challenging, hard, and sometimes even scary. For anyone reading this, if you really want to be done with an anxiety disorder, completely, then please look into counseling here. If you commit to the work, it will be the best investment you ever made. You will be free.
Sue… there will always be a special place in my heart for you. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow with your help.
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.
