Anxiety 101 – Episode 9 – Therapy and Professional Help

 

Today Billy and I talk about the different types of therapy and professional help available for anxiety disorders both from a US and a UK perspective.

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is hands down the most effective current long-term treatment for panic disorder and related anxiety disorders. If you’re seeking professional help, look for a therapist that specifically specialized in CBT and anxiety disorders. Therapy focused on simply talking about your life might be helpful to a degree, but that is a very long term process and really does very little to address the immediate needs of a panic sufferer. Use CBT and related techniques to get past your panic attacks first.
