My Keys to Success in Overcoming Generalized Anxiety

Be patient....

Don’t fight this.

If you choose to fight and battle, you will lose.

Take small, gradual steps!  Don’t kill yourself.

You can't be perfect, so don’t even try.  You'll just strangle yourself.

Gradual, non-pressured, but consistent progress is the way to go!

Recognize your improvements, small as they might be at first, and give yourself credit!

You deserve it!

Do your therapy with motivation, not with desperation, and you will get over this!!

Setbacks are unavoidable, so accept them as an integral part of the healing process!!

Using this approach assures you of significant improvement on your way towards complete recovery.

Remember, the past does not equal the future.

Our History and Our Mission

The Anxiety Network began in 1995 due to growing demand from people around the world wanting help in understanding and overcoming their anxiety disorder.  The Anxiety and Stress Clinic and its website, The Anxiety Network, received so much traffic and requests for help that we found ourselves spending the majority of our time in international communication and outreach.  Our in-person anxiety clinic has grown tremendously, and our principal internet tool, The Anxiety Network, has been re-written and re-designed with focus on the major anxiety disorders.  

The Anxiety Network  focuses on three of the major anxiety disorders:  panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder,  and social anxiety disorder.

In 1997, The Social Anxiety Association, a non-profit organization, was formed and has its own website.

The Social Anxiety Institute, the largest site on the internet for information and treatment of social anxiety, has maintained an active website since 1998.  Continuous, ongoing therapy groups have helped hundreds of people overcome social anxiety since 1994.  Major changes in design will be occurring in 2014.
