MONTREAL, Sept. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States, age 18 and older, or 18% of the population. Hundreds of billions of dollars are spent annually to treat depression, anxiety, and stress. This cost includes lost time at work, medication, treatments, hospitalizations, and complications that arise from these disorders. Americans and Canadians need help in preventing and treating these debilitating conditions. Two women have partnered to bring a soothing voice of reason and hope.
"Anxiety can take a real toll on your mind, body and day-to-day existence, but we want people to realize there are real strategies that can teach you how to reduce stress," asserts Sandra Reich, who has helped heal thousands of people using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as the Clinical Director of the Montreal Center for Anxiety and Depression. "It begins with challenging your thoughts and learning to see things more realistically."
One way that Reich is helping others to see things with a greater clarity is through her innovative video series, available in DVD and download at www.anxiety-videos.com. She and Georgia Dow, a psychotherapist and former teacher, help people through their videos to find techniques to beat back their out-of-control fears. They have a four-part video series on anxiety, a video on better parenting, another on getting better sleep, and newly released ones on depression and about setting boundaries and limits in your relationships.
Dow, who is a two-time Jiu Jitsu champion, says: "These videos will help people live better lives. We are professionals that have helped thousands of people work through crippling anxiety. We wanted to do these videos to be able to help people who may not go to therapy, and feel more comfortable at home or who want to have some extra information on anxiety."
Reich and Dow share helpful strategies and advice on how to:
- Treat specific situations that cause a lot of stress.
- Overcome insomnia, fatigue, and poor sleep patterns.
- Manage worry, conquer fear, and take back your life.
- Understand and deal with panic disorder, addiction, and obsessive compulsive disorder.
- Immunize yourself against disabling phobias.
"Anxiety always gets better once treated but will get worse if not," says Reich.
