Anxiety is debilitating and makes other mental health problems worse

Constant anxiety is exhausting. What’s more, it aggravates and intensifies other serious psychological problems like PTSD and even more notably, depression.

Coping strategies are the key to anxiety

We all worry but when our worries balloon into constant all-consuming anxiety, we are faced with a serious debilitating psychological problem.

By far the most concerning aspect of anxiety is its propensity to escalate. It literally feeds itself in a terrible self-stoking cycle to become a terrifying inescapable revolving storm, a paralyzing all-consuming cyclone in the mind.

Anxiety fuels depression. Depression amplifies anxiety. Anxiety and depression are often called “the terrible twins”. It’s a marriage made in hell. Metaphorical Therapy gives you practical proven strategies that can help you cope, break the cycle and avoid other serious mental health problems.
