“…It's not what’s outside of us, but what we hold inside traps us. We may not be responsible for the world that created our minds, but we can take responsibility for the mind with which we create our world.”― Gabor Maté, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction.
While the experience of anxiety, depression, PTSD, child behavior concerns and parenting can seem out of control and scary, there are validated and research-based psychotherapy methods that can help individuals cope through the anxiety symptoms and process the emotions and thoughts that may be activating the anxious responses of the brain.

There are various researched based psychotherapy methods available for the treatment of anxiety.
