    Sharing our true feelings with others can feel like a risk. But as Anxiety & OCD patient “Jared” will attest, that risk can bring remarkable rewards.

    The cycle of avoidance is so deeply ingrained for many of us that we’re not even aware it’s happening, and don’t realize how much suffering it’s causing. In his first recorded session, real therapy patient “Jared” opens up about his history with avoidance, and how he’s using therapy, compassionate self-talk, and a passion for cycling to break the avoidance cycle and create new, healthier habits.

    There’s exposure, and then there’s intentional exposure. In anxiety recovery, it’s important to practice both intentional exposure (seeking out controlled exposures on purpose) and handling incidental exposures as they come up. But did you know it works best to focus on those two practices in a certain order? Find out which order is most effective, and get some wonderful actionable tools for both from real anxiety patient “Catherine” and Dr. Maggie in part 3 of this 4 part series.

Excellent approach!

Dr. Perry’s approach in both her overall methodology and then the delivery/education that happens through this podcast combine in a really engaging way. The podcasts are informative and take complex concepts and simplify the underlying components to help reach new understanding, beliefs, and ways to achieve your goals. I also enjoy the varied perspectives you get from the speakers she brings on the show.
