I Am So Very Thankful To Everyone At Anxietycentre.com

In August 2011, the peak of my anxiety roared like an angry lion with no relief in sight. It had been such a long time since I had experienced this level of intensity that I panicked when my prayers seemed to go unanswered.

I found a counselor, and after that session, I thought there has got to be someone better who can help. While surfing the Internet for anxiety websites, I came across anxietycentre.com. What a blessing and lifesaver this has been to me! I can't even begin to explain how much this website, combined with the anxiety counseling from Stacey Ellertson, has helped me make huge strides in moving forward.

An illness with my dad in 2010, along with other stresses, triggered my anxiety again. Going through anxietycentre.com’s program, I now better understand all of this - the belief systems, underlying factors, and behaviors/habits that contribute to anxiety.

For anyone out there, I highly recommend anxiety counseling. If you can't afford it, contact a counselor anyway, as they are willing to work with you. The fact that Stacey and others have been through this really makes a difference.

I must admit, I haven't been as diligent lately and I can tell because my symptoms of anxiety have increased. However, I now have the tools to just go back and start over. It may not sound good, but believe me, it is because now you will have the tools and info always at your disposal. I know a lot of folks fear rebounds, setbacks, and such. But Stacey helped with that immensely, and now I just go back and re-read them. I know where to find him if I need him. At least now I don't have the level of fear that I can't do anything about my anxiety. I know that's not true. It does take time, but more importantly, consistency. Even with the increased symptoms, it's a long way from where I was a year or so ago.

I am SO very thankful for Jim Folk and everyone that commits their lives and time to helping the rest of us. There is hope folks! Always!

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.
