Anxiety & OCD

Anxiety & OCD

Anxiety includes Panic, Social anxiety, Health Anxiety, Phobias and the vaguely termed “Generalised Anxiety Disorder”.

Mild anxiety is normal and anxious people are understandably fearful of doctors, medication, hospitals and so on. However anxiety can seriously impair a persons functioning.

I was fortunate while training in England to train in Cognitive Therapy, which is the treatment of choice for all anxiety disorders and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and to see how effective this can be without the need to resort to medication, although this can sometime speed recovery of be the only affordable option.
