GAD: 6 Soothing Steps For Treating Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Once upon a time, anxiety was critical for keeping us alive. In today's world, though, it piggybacks on the kind of chronic, low-level threats that leave many in a state of constant anxiety.
People with generalized anxiety disorder feel continually tense and anxious over things that wouldn’t normally bother a person to that extent, and treating a client with generalized anxiety disorder can feel daunting for a therapist.
In this video I'll share with you some simple steps that I find useful when helping people with GAD. I talk about how the portrayal of general 'potential threats' in the news and other media can make us feel anxious (0:52), but if you would prefer to skip to the first tip then this begins at 3:24.

  • 2:11 I quit therapy because the night before, and the morning of, my therapy sessions, were always the worst times of my week with anxiety. For me, it was like having to admit once a week that you're sick and not in control of your life.

  • Having seen numerous therapists over the years, these videos make more sense than any of them. This guy absolutely gets it, I did have an NLP guy try some processes with no effect but I suspect / hope to combination of understanding and practical tools could crack it. GAD sounds like cptsd which I notice getting triggered but have no idea what interpretation my unconscious has made. All the best to all those brave souls suffering and searching - you are not alone.

  • Sounds like Kay was rebellious. Her mother clearly wanted her to be taught good morals. Therefore she told her stealing anything from anyone, not merely enjoying a flower, but enjoying someone else flower and removing it from their property was wrong. She should have been made to return the flower and asked for forgiveness from the neighbor. And then she should be punished just like the world would punish her if she got caught stealing from a store, robbing a person, etc.. Rebellious children can grow up to be anxious adults.

  • Thank you. I got fired about 6 months ago for something that wasn't my fault and I am just discovering that anxiety is what is wrong with me. I am not about to tell my life story on all the contributing factors, but my punch line is that I am still not working, mind is going everywhere. It feels like i cannot breathe 90% of the time but there is no way a shrink can physically change someones life(style). Such is life, its shit but its what we have.

I've been told to picture myself in a good place or try to have pleasant thoughts or meditate... jeez don't these dokcors understand that once you have a anxiety attack there is no way to put yourself in a better place 'cause one has enough trouble already to deal with the situation you are in already!! A tree and flowers on a meadow just don't do the trick that easily!!! For all those who think anxiety is they're own fault don't see it that way!!! I have the almost perfect life !! Great job , no money problems , no future worries no relationship troubles , no family drama yet still those attacks come !! thats why i am furious with doctors who seem to look down on you , thinking a little pill or long walks in the fresh air would help , like one is an idiot !

The more l learn about my parents issues, not to judge, but to learn why im having issues. I also have ADHD - it can be genetic, and made, low on the autism and OCD.

  • Feeling good by David burns is a lifesaver in my view.some things that help depression : 1) introspect: find out the root cause why are you depressed??? most of the time,you will be able to pinpoint an exact thing. like some people are severely depressed coz of their looks, by researching how many people with avg or not so good looks are doing good in life, it will help you a lot. 2) check your vitd3 and b 12 levels. a lot of people re just deficient in these essential vitamins due to ignorance and it manifests as mental slowdown, depression and irritability. 3) a hardcore positive affirmation: whenever you feel into that dark pit of depression, you have to make your own affirmation which boosts your soul . 4) talk therapy: believe me, no matter whats the problem, talking to someone closer (therapist or no therapist) will immediately lift off your mood.i have tried this and it helps me every time. we humans are social animals. 5) find out the genetic connection: depression is related to genetics as well, it has been studied that of your bloodline had trauma in the past, you will feel the similar feelings manifested in your genes. by knowing that it's just a genetic imbalance that will help you cope much better. 6) try herbal drugs: there is no harm in trying calming herbs, oils and even tried and tasted mood lifters. bacopa moneri is a well-studied herb. 7) after doing all this ,if still, you think you are falling into the hands of depression every day,its always better to take medical help.there are drugs which i know have s many side effects but afterall,they offer help too. newer ssri like DESVENLAFAXINE and duloxetine are very much tolerable than older ones.find things that excite you.if you like movies,go for @t comedy @t painting,just visit different art galleries. play games, make friends .go for a walk or a jog even if you dont want to come out from the bed,take it as a bitter pill to swallow. walking boosts serotonin,a study showed that walking 30 minutes produces the same amount of synaptic serotonin as SSRI's.

  • Very helpful video. I have forwarded information to my therapist so she can watch it as well as some of the others. My GAD is complicated further by Major Depressive Disorder, Agoraphobia and a bunch of other fears. Due to hyponatremia in the past, I cannot take SSRIs or SNRIs, so all my meds are only partially effective. I agree with the prior comments about never thinking about emotional trauma in the past being relevant. My parents were very overprotective, I'm an only child, and they taught me to fear almost everything, and never untaught me as I got older, so my fears are still stuck in a child's mind in my head. Thank you for the insights you provide on the TRvision channel.

    • Hi Nate C again. My therapist reminded me that for those in the US looking for a therapist, the Psychology Today website has a Therapist Finder function that lets you search by zip code. Each therapist has a profile listing their specialties, and I think also info regarding whether they take insurance or not. If the therapist runs group sessions, usually the date and time are provided, like Third Thursday, 7 pm. I do not know what is available in other countries regarding ways to find a therapist.

      Shirley KayeShirley Kaye7 aylar önce
    • Nate C. Thanks for your kind reply. I totally get it. After 20 years on and off in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I still had a relapse in 2017. Never in CBT did we talk about childhood trauma. I have taken part in some online summits and conferences and learned so much. The biggest thing you can do for yourself is to maintain hope that things will get better. I'm not Susie Sunshine by any means, but since I have learned to have hope, to exercise hope each day, to remind myself that nothing in life is permanent and this too shall pass (eventually?), my attitude has changed significantly. A good therapist is more effective than drugs which cause so many troubles in the long run. I'm on four psychiatric drugs, and some of them are addictive and all require extreme care in tapering to get off of them. My current therapist has taken me further since November than the 20 years of CBT. CBT is great for getting you through each day, but does not get to the root of the problem, so it is more of a band aid than a cure, in my opinion. It did help me, but never taught me where all this yucky stuff came from. So please maintain hope. I know it isn't easy, as I was never taught to have hope and learning it at 65 has been an interesting experience! Also, see if there is a chapter of NAMI (can't remember what the acronym stands for--National Association for Mental Illness?) in your area. They often have support groups. Keep watching this TRvision channel and check out their website as they have self help activities. Each thing you learn is an accomplishment and you can praise yourself. Wishing you the best and hoping you can find someone to help you along. Shirley
