Jim Folk, the President and founder of anxietycentre.com, struggled with anxiety disorder for 12 years (from 1974 to 1986).
Jim’s mission to help others began in 1987 after he recovered from his 12-year battle with extremely debilitating anxiety. Because of the personal anguish he experienced during his struggle, he vowed to help others so that they wouldn’t have to suffer as he did. His efforts to help others spawned a booklet, which later was transformed into the website “panicattack-help.com” in 1995. In 2002, panicattack-help.com was transformed into anxietycentre.com. Anxietycentre.com is an extension of his work.
Today, anxietycentre.com is an organization dedicated to helping people overcome anxiety disorder, as well as a number of other mental health challenges, including stress disorder, sleep problems (insomnia), and depressive disorder, as well as addictions, personal development, and interpersonal relationship challenges.
In addition to the comprehensive self-help information in the Recovery Support area, anxietycentre.com also offers professional therapy/counseling/coaching services provided by highly trained therapists to clients around the world.
Anxietycentre.com combines physiological, psychological, emotional, and spiritual (for those who wish to talk about the spiritual aspects of life) strategies to educate, support, and assist anxiety disorder sufferers through to success.
Anxietycentre.com’s website resource offers information, community, and support to those working at overcoming problematic anxiety. Anxietycentre.com's Recovery Support area contains a wealth of self-help information, as well as a private members discussion forum that many members view as their “virtual support group.”
In addition to this comprehensive online resource, anxietycentre.com offers personal therapy/counseling/coaching services to those who desire personal assistance, accountability, and support throughout their recovery. Each therapist has personally experienced and successfully overcome anxiety disorder. They know the hardship and work required to succeed. This personal experience is an invaluable asset during the recovery process.
Anxietycentre.com has a global reach that touches the lives of people around the world. They are passionate about helping people, committed to providing compassionate care, and have been doing it since 1987.

”CBT can be recommended as a gold standard in the psychotherapeutic treatment of patients with anxiety disorders." - Otte, Christian.

DISCLAIMER: Because each body is somewhat chemically unique, and because each person will have a unique mix of symptoms and underlying factors, recovery results may vary. 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.
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.
