We have some great reading for you this week – enjoy!
When my private world began to implode in early 2007, I was assigned a Mental Health Treatment Plan by my General Practitioner. As my main issue was debilitating anxiety, I was recommended to see a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT).
Through this approach of professional counselling, I discovered how my intense feelings of anxiety were primarily impacted by faulty thinking (cognition) and overreacting (behaviour).
Therefore I saw a therapist because:
- I was traumatised by my first panic attack
- I was stuck in catastrophic thinking patterns
- I had to learn how to change my anxious thinking
- I had to learn how to manage my anxiety through breathing
