Treatement of Anxiety

Anxiety is an all-encompassing term that pertains to a wide range of disorders, including worrying, hyper-vigilance and fear of a pervasive nature. Individuals struggling with anxiety may also experience panic attack, various phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder.

As a persistent disorder, anxiety can be disruptive in one’s everyday life. Normal functioning is impaired, which may permeate into the sufferer’s personal, professional and social life.

Individuals may experience different forms of anxiety, such as:

  • Panic attack
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Various phobias

All of these conditions interfere with normal functioning at home, work or school. The degree to which they interfere can be financially and emotionally disruptive. Sometimes medical conditions are underlying causes and a thorough physical evaluation is recommended. Anxiety disorders may accompany depression and can impair social, occupational or interpersonal functions.

Neurofeedback is very effective with anxiety

With this therapy method, the brain is guided to regulate itself, allowing better changes to improve function. Neurofeedback produces a calming effect, which makes it a wonderful stress management tool.

Those who do neurofeedback training gain control and significantly reduce or eliminate anxiety or panic and reduce medication. The brain learns to function calmly, eliminating any hyper-arousal that accompanies anxiety. Additional psychotherapy, stress management and relaxation training will ensure skill building for handling stressors.

With psychotherapy and counseling therapy, neurofeedback can produce magnificent results in individuals struggling with depression and its symptoms.
