Biography:

Jim Folk suffered with anxiety disorder including debilitating panic attacks, from 1974 to 1986. During those 12 years, he had undergone countless tests; sought the help of numerous medical and mental health professionals; traveled to a clinic in Mexicali, Mexico; had been prescribed numerous medications; tried herbs, vitamins, diets, alternative therapies; and a host of other treatments in an attempt to regain his normal health.

After finding little help from medical and mental health professionals, in 1985, Jim came in contact with a psychologist who specialized in anxiety disorder. Jim's personal experience with anxiety and his comprehensive research, coupled with the psychologist's reassurances, helped Jim to turn his condition around. In 1986, Jim stopped all medication and in 1987, he regained his normal health.

Jim continues to enjoy normal and medication-free health today (over 30 years).

Even though Jim recovered in 1987, he continued with vigorous research into anxiety and other mental health disorders (which he continues to do today). In 1989, Jim began working with others who were experiencing panic and anxiety disorders. In 1992, he wrote the book "Recovering from Panic Attacks," and in 1996, he developed the website www.panicattack-help.com.

Today, Jim is the president of anxietycentre.com, which offers extensive self-help information and personal psychotherapy, therapy, counseling, and coaching services to individuals and small groups from around the world.

As an entrepreneur, Jim, the companies he's founded, and the projects they have participated in, have won hundreds of awards including 7 Gemini Award Nominations, 3 Saskatchewan Showcase Awards, and a coveted Golden Sheaf Award.

Jim has years of experience in coaching individuals suffering from various forms of anxiety (Social Anxiety Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, phobias), stress, depression, interpersonal relationship problems (boundaries, self-esteem), anger issues, and physical/emotional/sexual/spiritual abuse.

Jim and Marilyn Folk currently live in Calgary, Canada.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder coach, counselor, or 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.
