Overcome anxiety by facing fear

Proven tips and tools. There are a lot of resources out there for managing anxiety. However, many of them are based on opinion rather than science. Dr. Craig April, founder of the April Center for Anxiety Attack Management, relies on the latter. By employing cognitive behavioral therapy, a research-proven method for anxiety treatment, listeners can find the breakthrough they desire.

No-nonsense approach. Assuming the role of victim when it comes to anxiety can make us feel trapped and convince us that we have no control in getting better. However, Dr. April shares that, in most of its forms, anxiety is not a mental illness. For this reason, he takes a stripped-down approach to tackling anxiety that looks at the root: false fear messages.

Fear is part of the human condition. Fear is a factor in all lives, whether we feel it plays a significant role in controlling us or not. However, it is also something that can be faced. By recognizing anxiety as a result of false fear messages, we become better equipped to manage it. An expert on cognitive behavioral therapy focused on anxiety relief, Dr. April is equipped with over 20 years of experience and seeks to help listeners face their fears and overcome anxiety.
