Experience Relief from Compulsive Worry 

Worry is fundamentally a cognitive process characterized by negative thoughts and apprehensions about potential future events or outcomes. This mental action is generally more manageable and less intense compared to feelings of anxiety or episodes of panic, both of which can overwhelm an individual's capacity to function normally. Typically, worry is directed and specific, focusing on identifiable concerns or problems that a person might realistically encounter. However, as worry escalates in intensity, frequency, and begins to diverge from rational, justifiable concerns, it increasingly becomes more driven by subconscious elements. This shift marks a transition from productive caution to an exaggerated state that is less anchored in objectively reasonable justifications for such persistent concern.

In its milder forms, worry can serve a constructive purpose by prompting individuals to engage in problem-solving strategies. This proactive approach can lead to the identification and implementation of solutions that effectively address the source of one's worries, thereby alleviating the initial concern. Nevertheless, when worry crosses the threshold from being a motivating force to becoming excessive, problematic, and beyond one's control, it poses significant challenges to mental well-being. Excessive worry can engulf an individual's thought processes, creating a pervasive sense of dread that undermines the ability to concentrate on the present. Consequently, this relentless focus on potential negative future outcomes can significantly diminish the opportunity to experience joy and contentment. By constantly anticipating future problems, individuals rob themselves of the ability to live in and savor the present moment, thereby missing out on the richness of life as it unfolds in real time. This loss of presence can have profound implications for one's overall quality of life, as it hampers the ability to form meaningful connections, enjoy simple pleasures, and maintain a balanced and fulfilling existence.

Progression of Decreased Consciousness as Fear Grows

1

Worry

Worry is primarily a cognitive process that involves negative thoughts about potential future events or outcomes and tends to be more manageable and less intense than anxiety or panic. While worry is often specific and focused on identifiable concerns or problems, it becomes more driven by subconscious elements as it grows more intense, frequent, and less grounded in reasons that objectively justify such a level of ongoing concern.

2

Anxiety

As the connections between anxiety and its initial causes become more elusive, with its underlying factors becoming increasingly submerged in the subconscious, the breadth of the anxiety experience expands and is experienced as more complex and difficult to manage. This intricacy emphasizes the sophisticated character of anxiety, illustrating its ability to go beyond mere worry and profoundly affect individuals on a comprehensive and multi-level scale.

3

Panic

Among worry, anxiety, and panic, panic is the most intensely driven by subconscious causes. Panic attacks can be so sudden, overwhelming, and uncontrollable in their intensity that it's often difficult, in retrospect, to determine what triggered them. Unlike worry, which revolves around specific, identifiable concerns, and anxiety, which can stem from a broader range of identifiable or vague stimuli, panic attacks can erupt without a clear, immediate cause, suggesting a deep-rooted link to subconscious processes.

What Asher's clients have to say...

Unpaid testimonials from actual clients.

Lee m.

I came to see Asher with anxiety that had plagued me on and off for 20 years. He taught me that my anxiety wasn't just something random, but that it was deeply rooted in my childhood and most importantly, that it was something I could let go of. For the first time in many years, I feel like I'm in control of my life.

Asher's ability to counsel comes not only from his training and credentials, but even more importantly, I believe from his keen instinct about how the mind works. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the progress I have made under his care.

Working with Asher has been a wonderful experience. I haven't had more productive progress with anyone else in the field of therapy. Not only has he helped me, but he has also helped me and my wife in our relationship.

My experience has also been very comfortable as Asher makes the process very simple and moves at a pace that is perfect for me. Very happy and grateful with everything about my work with Asher.
