Confused about which approach for working with panic and anxiety attacks really works consistently?

Wonder why the approach that you use with clients suffering from panic and anxiety sometimes works and sometimes doesn't?

This page is for professionals wanting to develop or sharpen their skills in dealing with clients suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia and phobias. This technique is strictly educational in nature as anxiety and panic attacks are strictly a disease of ignorance! Now that's a pretty bold statement. And considering it comes from a chemical engineer instead of a psychiatrist or psychologist, it may seem even more far fetched. 

I discovered this approach to dealing with panic attacks in the mid eighties. As with most clinicians it was easy for me to remember the successes. But in reality there were many clients who only came a few sessions, disappeared, never to be heard from again. What about them? Were they successful? It's this latter group that's often forgotten by most clinicians. They never get figured into the true percentages of success or failure.

Certainly the approach that I was using was different than anything I had seen in the literature for treatment of anxiety, panic attack or agoraphobia or any technique that I had ever found in books and cassette tapes being sold to clinicians and professional conferences. But did that make a difference in the percentages?

To learn the truth, I did what few clinicians do -- I created a survey and mailed it to everyone that I had seen or worked with over a six-year period who had suffered from phobias, anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, or associative depression. When I tabulated the results, I was truly amazed at the incredibly high success rates.

This web site is about the study of the results of the survey. It is primarily a resource for clinicians and therapists who would like to "step outside the box" and hone their skills so as to improve their success rate with clients suffering from phobias, panic attack, agoraphobia, and free floating anxiety.

The DVDs and cds offered are available for sale through this web site. However, if you are a sufferer from anyone of these maladies, I suggest that you use the content given in the cassette tapes to guide your counseling and therapy.

Most clients believe it up to the therapist to guide the therapy. It seems natural because after all the therapists is the person who is supposed to know how to get you from where you are to where you want to be -- free of anxiety. So a typical sessions runs something like this...

"How's your week?"

"I had a terrible time when I went to the store yesterday."

"What do you think caused that?"

"I don't know!"

The therapist then delves into the significance of the store and the intensity of the anxiety in an attempt to see where you made a mistake in applying his behavioral approach. The result is that the session is "off and running," on some insignificant issue and ends up being a waste of time, money and skill on the part of the therapist.

It's not expected that the CD's offered on this site will free you of anxiety and depression without a therapist, it could happen. A more practical view would be to watch the dvd, listen to the cds, see how the information applies to you, and use it as a guide in your sessions with your therapists. You should be the person directing the therapy -- not the therapists.

Of course, if you are the therapist, then these programs will allow you to direct your clients through the issues that are pertinent when dealing with anxiety and depression.

I promise that the approach is radically different than anything you've used or seen before and your results will improve. However, once you've gone through the essence of it, you'll wonder, "Why didn't I think of that? It makes perfect sense." And that's what this approach is about -- logic. Pure and simple logic. No need to analyze one's relationship with his mother, his father, and so on. No need to go back in time and waste time talking about embarrassing situations or relationships, analyze dreams, and so on. 

Instead it's more important for your clients to learn to effectively deal with disappointment and learn how to "observe" instead of coming to medical conclusions about physical feelings that are unfounded and untrue. This indeed is the essence of the training and it can take a client as little as one session to accomplish this goal or as long as two-to-three months.

And this is what this training is about; guiding you, the therapists, so that you may guide your clients to freedom from anxiety and depression. It is totally educational and non-therapeutic, unless of course you call a gentle backrub therapeutic -- it certainly feels good but you don't have to look at what makes you tick to feel good. Likewise, your clients won't have to look at what makes them tick in order to feel good and free themselves from anxiety.
