Play the clip below for Jim Folk's message about anxiety. Jim Folk is the president of anxietycentre.com.

NOTE: The above video was recorded in 2008, so Jim has been recovered for over 27 years rather than 21 as he mentions in the video.

All of us at anxietycentre.com have successfully overcome anxiety disorders. We continue to live normal lives because we learned HOW.

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 address problematic anxiety, I recovered in 1987 and continue to live with normal health (over 27 years).

(Click here for more information about my personal struggle with anxiety.)

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

We do this by:

  1. Providing the most up-to-date anxiety information, help, and support in the members area of our website.
  2. Offering personalized assistance to those who prefer to have step-by-step help with their recovery via Personal Coaching/Counseling/Therapy.

While anxiety disorder recovery is attainable, there aren’t any “quick fix,” “miracle cures,” or “secret remedies.” Anxiety recovery requires accessing the right information, help, and support. Then, applying the right tools to bring about results. Anyone can do it when they know how and have the proper support.[1]

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. So 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 how to succeed.[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.

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


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.
