A New Answer for Anxiety-Related Problems

Excessive anxiety, constant worrying, panic attacks that come out of the blue, unstoppable obsessive thoughts and compulsions, irrational fears and phobias (particularly social phobia), post trauma fear, severe depression...

The current worldview of these problems is based on the medical model which views them as (mental) illnesses where something goes wrong in our brain and the answer lies in 'fixing' the thing that has gone wrong.

At 'Help-For' we don't believe this at all.

How many 'normal' people...

point  Say 'Touch Wood' so as not to tempt fate?
point  Repeatedly check doors, windows, switches?
point  Take a drink before social functions?
point  Avoid public speaking at all costs?

Almost everyone displays behaviours associated with anxiety disorders (and depression) such as disturbing thoughts, ritualistic checking, the need for perfection, increased anxiety, panic and despair at some time in their lives – more so in times of stress – for these problems reflect the subconscious ways that humans have evolved to protect themselves.


"With insight comes understanding and through understanding comes healing."


Anxiety Definition:-

The Collins English Dictionary describes anxiety as "a state of uneasiness or tension caused by apprehension of possible misfortune, danger etc."

And to be anxious is to be "worried and tense."

Latin anxietas gave anxiety in English; the base is Latin anxius, from angere 'to choke'.



"An illness that disrupts normal physical or mental functions."

(Medical model definition)

Anxiety disorders are characterized by significant feelings of anxiety and fear.


These aren't some awful illness we were just unfortunate to catch (a belief that consigns us to feelings of helplessness and hopelessness) they are the result of learning and conditioning from our life experiences. When we can understand and accept this, everything changes.

All that you read from 'Help-For' is based on the premise:

quotemark start Not diseases, disorders or mental illness, anxiety and depression problems involve natural survival instincts common to us all – normal self-protective thoughts, feelings and behaviours that become over-sensitive and intensified, grossly exaggerated and out of control.

They develop from experiencing too many (or too severe) stressful, negative life issues and events... ones that make us feel weak and vulnerable.

In essence, these problems come from our subconscious trying to protect us when life has made us afraid. And they start, strengthen and grow from our mind's attempts to explain and resolve the intangible fear we feel inside.
