For decades, Anxiety has been one of the most common complaints to Psychotherapists. If it persists over some time, Anxiety can interfere with work, relationships and even our sleep. For some, if Anxiety reaches the stage of panic then it can be really disabling.

The emotional basis for Anxiety is Fear. Unlike Fear, which relates primarily to the past, Anxiety is a future oriented emotion. So, Anxiety is basically Fear of the future.

The physical manifestation of Anxiety may be one of the more distressing features of the emotion. Generally, the symptoms include increased rate of breathing and heart rate, shaking, sweating, being light headed, tingling and numbness in the hands, feet, arms and legs—even choking symptoms. Because of its physical manifestations, Anxiety is almost impossible to ignore. It can be even tougher to overcome on your own.

The procedure for treating Anxiety is as simple and easy as any other Time Line Therapy™ technique. The process can be done by children as young as age 3 and adults as old as 90 years. Simply put, we treat Fear first and then Anxiety. The two emotions are, however treated differently.

Using Time Line Therapy™, Fear (related to the past) is treated in the same way as any other negative emotion it is released using the process for releasing negative emotions. Anxiety, although relating to the future can also be released using Time Line Therapy™, although the procedure is different. Simply put, the client is asked to imagine floating above his Time Line and to go to a point above and after the "successful completion" of the event. In most every case, the Anxiety disappears at that point.

Time Line Therapy™ is so effective in treating Anxiety, that it has been used by the Russian Psychologists to treat the soldiers traumatized in the Chechin war. Here is an excerpt from a Russian web site with the study that included Time Line Therapy™. The results included, "Solving of individual problems of participants-decreasing of anxiety and depression, reestablishment of the cycle 'sleep-awaking'..."
