Learning how to deal with anxiety can be very difficult on your own. Fortunately, there has been a tremendous amount of research in the field of anxiety treatment and there are now scientifically proven techniques for overcoming anxiety. The purpose of this site is to provide up to date, evidence-based information and treatment resources for people suffering from anxiety.
- Coping with Anxiety: One of the most important steps in overcoming anxiety is developing an effective coping strategy. Unfortunately, the coping behaviors that people suffering from anxiety develop on their own often involve avoiding the things that trigger their anxiety. While this provides short term relief, it can cause many problems in the long term as more and more things are avoided and the source of the anxiety is never treated.
- Anxiety Relief: The secret to learning how to get rid of anxiety is identifying the triggers of excessive or irrational fear and using the tools provided on this website to teach your mind and body a different way of reacting to those triggers. The ABCtracker™ program on this site will show you how to do this as well as teach you current techniques for relaxing your body and your mind.
- Anxious thoughts: The belief that the strong emotions and physical symptoms of anxiety are harmful can increase and maintain your state of anxiety. This leads to a vicious cycle of negative thoughts that can make you feel frightened and out of control. With the help of the ABCtracker™ you will learn how to think calmly and more rationally so that you can control your anxiety instead of your anxiety controlling you.
