We know how it feels and the hardship it can cause. But we also know how to overcome it.

All of us at anxietycentre.com have experienced debilitating anxiety in our own lives. Many of us suffered excruciating anxiety for years. We know what it’s like to struggle with seemingly no hope. Yes, it can be awful, frightening, and frustrating.

We also, however, know how to overcome it!

All of us at anxietycentre.com have fully recovered from our conditions, and continue to live medication-free normal and healthy lives. Yes, anxiety conditions are highly treatable and anyone can do it with the right information, help, and support.

Because we’ve been in the pit of anxiety and have returned to normal health, we know anxiety intimately. It holds no surprises for us. But more importantly, we also know how to treat it.[1]

And because we know how debilitating and life-stealing anxiety can be, we are compassionate and committed to helping others overcome anxiety disorder, as we have.

Sadly, there are a lot of misconceptions about anxiety. Many of them negatively impact a person’s ability to recover. We understand this, because we ran into many of them ourselves.

But based on our personal and professional experiences with anxiety, we KNOW anxiety IS reversible and NOT a long-term condition. It’s only a long-term condition when you DON’T understand it or know how to treat it.

Sure, there are many people who claim to be able to treat anxiety, but unless they have personally experienced it and successfully recovered from it, they won’t understand it as intimately as those who have personally experienced it. Our clients continually tell us that our personal experience DOES make a difference.[2]

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 that psychologist takes antidepressants himself. How helpful is that?”[3]

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, because of everything I learned at your website. As I left, I mentioned that she should visit your website.”[3]

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.”[3]

Yes, this has been our experience, too. Many professionally trained anxiety therapists who haven’t personally experienced anxiety aren’t that helpful. Unfortunately, you can waste a lot of time and money to discover that. Many of our clients have tried everything else and are at their wits end before they have come to us for help.

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

Anxiety IS highly treatable. We can help you overcome anxiety disorder.[2]

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.
