Anxiety Treatment

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. It is a normal reaction to stressful situations. However, for many people, anxiety can become excessive, and significantly interfere with functions of daily life like job performance, schoolwork and relationships. There are a variety of anxiety disorders (social phobia, specific phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, general anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder. Panic disorder) and collectively, they are among the most common mental health disorders. The exaggerated worry, and continuous dread that typify anxiety disorders can take a toll emotionally and physically.
Fortunately, effective treatment does exist. Here at EBMC, we have a systematic and effective approach to working with anxiety. In addition to other evidence-based approaches such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and exposure therapy, we offer mindfulness-based approaches to treating anxiety disorders and their symptoms. By bringing presence and awareness to the conditions that underlie anxiety, and slowing down the reactive responses to these triggers, we can begin to shift our relationship with anxiety. Through compassionate and non-judgmental exploration of our problems, we can confront conflicting issues without fear or phobia. It has been medically proven that when people confront what they fear repeatedly without getting the negative outcome they actually feared, the sense of phobia gradually subsides. This does not only help in changing the mental frame of a person in a natural manner, but also helps in building back the lost confidence and sensitivity towards self.
