I use multiple CBT techniques. The one that differentiates anxiety treatment from others is the use of Exposure and Response (or Ritual) Prevention (ERP or exposure therapy). It involves facing your fear in a very structured, graduated manner until the fear is significantly reduced.
We will thoroughly assess the sources of anxiety and build a list of anxiety-inducing tasks (exposures). The tasks are ordered by difficulty level (0-100) and generally we start off at about a 40. These tasks will be completed both in and out of session with around 30 minutes minimum spent each day on exposures. This kind of therapy is laser-focused, intensive, and gets results!
