There are many anxiety treatment options. Research has found that the most effective treatment for anxiety disorder is the combination of good self-help information, support, and personal coaching/therapy (often referred to as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). This is particularly effective when delivered by coaches/therapists who have personally experienced and have successfully overcome anxiety disorder and anxiety symptoms in their own lives.
Having personally experienced and successfully overcome anxiety disorder and anxiety symptoms means not only do they understand your struggle and how anxiety symptoms feel and can impact a person’s life but that they also know how to treat anxiety unwellness and its symptoms. This personal experience is a valuable asset in the anxiety disorder recovery process, including treating symptoms.
