This week, our website will be offline intermittently as we make important upgrades to our systems, technologies, design, and functionality. Should you arrive at our website and find it offline or showing signs of disrepair, that is the reason why,

We're hoping these upgrades won't take long, but there are many of them. We ask for your patience as these important upgrades are completed.

Also, don't be surprised by our new look. We're still the same organization but with a much-needed facelift. :-)

All of us associated with anxietycentre.com have personally struggled with anxiety disorder and its symptoms and have uccessfully overcome it.

For example, I (Jim Folk) suffered with intensely debilitating anxiety (including intense and persistent panic attacks) for 12 years (from 1974 to 1986). But after discovering how to successfully overcome anxiety disorder and its symptoms, I recovered in 1987 and continue to live with normal health (over 34 years).

Because of our own struggles, we are committed to helping others so that they can regain their normal and healthy lives, as we have.

Sadly, many people try a wide assortment of herbs, remedies, vitamins, and secret formulas in hopes of finding lasting relief. Unfortunately, these options generally don’t provide satisfactory or lasting relief. As such, many people continue to flip flop between hope and despair, feeling better and feeling worse...for years. This is a common struggle for many with anxiety disorder.

But, success can be attained.[1] We know what it takes to overcome problematic anxiety because we've done it ourselves. And since we’ve done it ourselves, we know the struggles and challenges. But we also know the road to lasting success.[2]

We encourage you: Don’t suffer needlessly. There's a lot you can do to successfully address problematic anxiety, as we have.[1] We’d like to help you do that.

For more information about anxiety counseling/therapy or joining our Recovery Support area.

Anxietycentre.com can help you address anxiety, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, stress, fear, sleep disorders, and anxiety attacks!

We established anxietycentre.com so that people could find the help they need to attain lasting relief from anxiety disorder and its symptoms.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist is the most effective way to address anxiety disorder and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - the underlying factors that motivate apprehensive behavior - a struggle with anxiety disorder can return again and again. Identifying and successfully addressing anxiety's underlying factors is the best way to overcome problematic anxiety.

Variances can occur for many reasons, including due to the severity of the condition, the ability of the person to apply the recovery concepts, and the commitment to making behavioral change.
