Susan’s approach to Anxiety Disorders and Phobias
Susan approaches treatments for anxiety disorders through several methods that have been scientifically tested to yield positive results:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Thought patterns are examined. Alternatives are created that won’t elicit damaging responses. Most of all, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy seeks to modify the original negative belief into something positive.
Exposure and Response Therapy
Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy is a form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Most of all, it helps a person with psychological disorders to conquer fears through desensitization.
This approach is used by Susan to strengthen family ties and provide a deeper understanding of the causes and effects of anxiety disorders. It is effective even if the person suffering from anxiety disorder is not undergoing counseling.
Are you ready to deal with the causes and symptoms of your anxiety disorder? It’s understandable to be hesitant in seeking counseling for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. However, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Effective treatment will help you get your life back. You can feel better.
