    Hi everyone,

    Fear plays a huge roll in perpetuating the TMS cycle. Many TMSers are anxious by nature and this can complicate their recovery by causing them to ruminate on their fears. If you suffer from Anxiety, I highly recommend learning about Dr. Claire Weekes, an Australian physician who overcame her own crippling anxiety.

    To learn about her approach, we have a free wiki page:

    Our own @Walt Oleksy wrote much of the text on the main summary of the page. The page is a wiki page as well, so it will be easy to update going forward.

    Thank you Walt, and Forest. I have clients rave about Claire Weekes' method, and so it is great to find a quick summary, with the core of her stuff, at my finger tips. And I have to say I love her approach. There is a real flavor of acceptance and "not fighting things" that I relate to. I think if you can train in this approach with anxiety and panic and fear, then you can easily apply this aim of acceptance to other feelings.
