The first step to recovery is accepting the situation and letting go of it, the psychologist said.
It is important to understand that it can take several weeks for a person to accept they have an anxiety disorder.
This will require an awareness of the emotional and physical symptoms, such as anxiety, fear, depression, and the need for support.
“Accepting that it’s not going to get better, it’s going to take time, is important,” said Dr. Heather Gansler, who heads the Center for Anxiety Disorders and Depression.
“This is where the person can get out of the situation without any issues and then can continue to feel positive about their life.”
In some cases, a person can work through the fear by taking their thoughts to a higher level and going through rituals.
They might start by saying out loud, ‘I’m afraid’ or ‘I need help,’ and then the anxiety will start to go away.
“I think the key thing is that this is a cognitive process,” said Ganslers psychiatrist, Dr. Sarah Sisley.
“We need to be aware of the way we think, how we feel and how we react, so we can start to rebuild.”
In addition to getting some support and guidance, Gansels partner, Dr, David Hamer, encourages people to have a quiet time.
“It’s important for the person to be calm,” he said.
“When they’re calm, their anxiety goes away.”
Dr. Gansles team is working on a book called The Quiet Patient, which will offer advice to help people deal with anxiety and depression.
The book, published by the Centre for Anxiety and Depression, includes information on how to manage your symptoms and how to recover from them.
The books’ title suggests a calming, non-judgmental approach, but it can also be a challenging read.
“For some people, the book will be helpful, but not for others,” said Sisles.
“Some people can really enjoy it, and others can not.
You have to be careful with this, because it can have a devastating impact on your life.”
To get the most out of a book, make sure to ask about the author, the issues the book addresses and what the book says about the person, Gisler said.
You can also ask questions such as “what would help you cope better?” or “do you feel you are better able to cope?”
The more you can answer these questions, the better the book can help you, Gensler said, adding that it is important for people to understand the underlying reasons behind their anxiety.
Ganslers advice to women is to stop smoking, but to stop drinking and smoking is not an easy thing to do, she said.
If a woman smokes a lot, it can be tough, she added.
“The first thing you want to do is talk to your partner, because they are your partner and you have to get that help for them.”
