This podcast is the narrated version of my article 3 Interventions for Treating Anxiety.

Sometimes a large part of anxiety therapy is helping your client overcome the ‘feeling like a freak’ effect caused by too much self consciousness. Self consciousness can present a paradox for therapists in that the client needs to make less effort rather than more in order to overcome it.

In this episode I talk about:

  • The vicious circle effect of worrying about worrying
  • How to normalize client problems without minimizing them
  • Ways to reframe problems by putting them in context and so make them less ‘weird’
  • Why identifying the function of the problem can be profoundly therapeutic
