We Experienced Anxiety Disorder Too

All of us with anxietycentre.com have experienced anxiety disorder. Some of us to very high degrees and for many years.

For instance, I had severe anxiety disorder for 12 years. You can read my anxiety story here.

We know the hardship anxiety disorder can cause. We know how it can devastate your personal life, your relationships, education, employment, career, social interactions, and so much more.

Moreover, most of us have come from difficult backgrounds that often contribute to the development of issues with anxiety disorder. Severe abuse, trauma, abandonment, hyper-criticalness, and rejection are common among those who struggle with anxiety issues.

We also know what it’s like to struggle with powerful and unrelenting symptoms, and for it to seem like there is no hope to recover.

Truly, anxiety disorder can feel powerful, awful, frightening, and frustrating.

However, we also know you can overcome anxiety disorder and its many symptoms.

All of us at anxietycentre.com have overcome anxiety disorder and continue to live medication-free normal, and healthy lives.

Because we’ve been in the pit of anxiety disorder, we know anxiety intimately. But more importantly, we also know HOW to overcome it.

Since we know how debilitating and life-stealing anxiety disorder can be, we are compassionate and committed to helping people overcome it, as we have.

Unfortunately, there still exist many misconceptions about anxiety disorder and how to overcome it. In fact, some people say you can’t overcome anxiety disorder and the best you can do is manage symptoms.

I, too, heard that many times during my years of struggle.

And many people claim to be able to help with anxiety disorder, but their help isn’t that effective or informed.

For example, one of our clients said, “When I told this one psychologist about some of my symptoms, he was surprised and puzzled. That really scared me because I thought that I had something unusual until I read about it at your website. Then I found out that psychologist takes antidepressants himself. How helpful is that?”

Another told us, “As I was talking to a therapist about my anxiety, it quickly became clear that I knew more about it than she did. As I left, I mentioned that she should visit your website.”

And yet another said, “I’m finishing my degree to become a psychologist, and I’m shocked that they only know about 10 percent of what you guys know. The information that we are learning in school about anxiety really isn’t that helpful.”

Unfortunately, you can waste a lot of time and money to discover that the therapist you are working with isn’t intimately familiar with anxiety disorder. Many of our clients have tried everything else before they’ve come to us for help.

Our clients continually tell us that our personal experience with and overcoming anxiety disorder has made a big difference.

This is why we established anxietycentre.com: to provide insightful and meaningful help to those who are struggling.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed – which we call the underlying factors of anxiety – a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
