    Hi , I have used this site to deal with my tms before and understand the basics and revert back to it every now and then and have had some success in stoping pain related symptoms so I do belive in it , however my issues that I have not been able to beat with my actual anxiety this has stayed and goes up and down

    I have known for some time that I have a form of health anxiety and general anxiety. Due to the crona virus the effect it has had on me is unbearable .

    I feel like I just can’t cope and need specialist 1-2-1 help ASAP to try and change my mindset .

    I am in the UK and will pay whatever it needs to have a Skype call ASAP and start some kind of CBT as the online guides and other things I’m trying to educate myself with is just not working as my anxiety and fear is just to strong it is tearing me and my family apart my little one aged 4 has had symptoms for a week and I just can’t cope with the fear .

    I have tried looking online and can’t get any immediate help can anyone recommend someone that can help ?

    James,

    You're not alone. Many of us probably have our anxiety kicked up higher right now with this corona-virus.

    I looked online for you. It looks like Steve Ozanich has a private consultation available on Wednesday. He wrote The Great Pain Deception and has been a magnificent source of comfort for many on here.

    Peace to you. http://www.steveozanich.com/index.php/schedule (Schedule - Steve Ozanich)

    Brilliant, Marcia!

    @jamesuk1980, I echo Marcia's sentiments - the dire uncertainty that the whole world is experiencing right now is one of the worst things possible for the emotional health of human beings. Your fear for your little one is palpable, and unimaginable. It's possible that even deeper down, your fear might go beyond the immediate health of your one child, to the ability of all children to survive in this unreal new world. The combination of uncertainty and unreality is too much for many people to bear.

    I hope you get to talk to Steve. Wishing you the best.

    ~Jan
