How Are Anxiety Disorders Treated In Coaching?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is generally viewed as the most effective form of treatment for panic attacks, panic disorder, and agoraphobia. Results are seen by dealing with the thinking patterns and behaviors that are sustaining or triggering the panic attacks. It’s time to look at your fears in a more realistic light and raise up confidence to build a belief, I am able!

Coaching is a very successful way to deal with this condition.  People often experience thoughts or feelings that reinforce or compound problematic behaviors affecting numerous life areas, including family, romantic relationships, work, and academics. For example, a person suffering from low self-esteem might experience negative thoughts about his or her own abilities or appearance. As a result of these negative thinking patterns, the individual might start avoiding social situations or pass up opportunities for advancement at work or at school.  Coaching teaches you to replace errors in thinking such as over generalizing, magnifying negatives, minimizing positives and catastrophizing" with "more realistic and effective thoughts, thus decreasing emotional distress and self-defeating behavior.  Easier said than done on your own but with support or a coach, this type of therapy can produce some of the fastest results for the person suffering.
