New Solution for Anxiety Sufferers

I can help you overcome fears, phobias & anxiety-related problems with a safe and effective method. The methodology I use is both effective and efficient. So much so that many people that come to me for help find they require just a handful of sessions to rid themselves of fear & anxiety. However, every case is unique.

How the Rowshan Method Works

I’ll share with you the secret to overcoming fear and anxiety. Bear in mind that the discovery is not mine. World renowned neurologists and brain researchers such as Antonio Damasio, Michael Gazzaniga and Dennis Charney, among others, have contributed greatly to expand our knowledge of how the brain functions.

In order to free yourself from phobias and anxiety, two fundamental things must be changed:

  1. Your perception of what appears to be menacing and dangerous, and also
  2. Your reaction to it.

These two aspects become a vicious self-reinforcing loop that takes a life of its own. Once you manage to change how you perceive the problem situation or stimuli, your physiological reaction to it will change as well.

Before telling you how I go about achieving these two goals, let me tell you briefly what I do not do:

  • I do not expose you to the object or the situation that causes fear or anxiety. Exposure techniques rarely work because by triggering this vicious circle of fight-or flight response (fear and anxiety) you could actually reinforce it.
  • I will not just talk and listen to you. Simply giving you a sympathetic shoulder and a listening ear to your problem will not solve anything.
  • I will not give you advice. Telling that you should read such and such book or to take life easy will not help you.
  • I will not try to convince you that your fear is irrational. That would insult your intelligence as you already know that.
  • I will not delve into your past or childhood memories to uncover the deep layers of issues surrounding the problem.

You must realize that there is no scientific evidence that knowing the causes of a problem contributes to its solution. The key factor with fears and anxiety is not what causes them in the past, but rather how the problem keep persisting in the present.

Over several online sessions, I will take you through specific techniques that allow you to overcome your fears or anxiety. Between sessions, you will practice what you’ve learned. And as we progress I will fine tune your exercises to fit your unique case until you have overcome the problem.

My method is a combination of many proven techniques. I use relaxation exercises, suggestions and other techniques that I have honed through years of study and practice. The key is the correct order of these techniques.

As Blaise Pascal, the great philosopher said: “Words differently arranged have a different meaning, and meanings differently arranged have different effects.” Likewise, techniques differently arranged will have different effects. Some of the techniques used by most psychotherapists are effective; however they are presented in the wrong order. Therefore they do not have the desired effect and rarely help you overcome your fears and anxiety.

My Method Is Effective

I believe there’s only one proof that matters: the results I can deliver. I’m neither a doctor, a psychologist nor a psychotherapist. I am a specialist in anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive behavior and other anxiety-related problems.

My approach is decidedly pragmatic aimed at freeing you from fears and anxiety. My method has proven over the last 23 years to be an effective solution to extreme fear and anxiety. To learn more, you can read the success stories related to anxiety, phobias, panic attacks and obsessive-compulsive disorder describing how I’ve helped specific individuals.

Many believe that the origin and the very first cause of fear and anxiety is the key to solving it. However, in some cases, people don’t even remember the cause. I have had clients who had every reason to be happy in their life but still felt anxious and depressed. As every person suffering from fear and anxiety can tell you, the symptoms often evolve through time and usually become worse. Untreated problems can worsen. So time becomes the enemy – as you let your fears and anxiety rule your life, your symptoms worsen.

I remember a man who came to see me for agoraphobia. His fear had started with a panic attack in the street but gradually his fear limited his life to the extent that he could hardly go out of his town on his own. It is immensely gratifying to be able to assist individuals improve their lives and reach a little bit further into their vast potentialities.

Kendra Fisher’s Experience with Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks, & Agoraphobia

Kendra Fisher, tells her story in the following way:

Kendra grew up in Kincardine, Ontario. With the support of her family and town behind her, Kendra quickly achieved great successes in her hockey career. Years ago, when faced with the opportunity to realize her dream of goal-tending for Team Canada, Kendra was diagnosed with Severe Anxiety Disorder coupled with Severe Panic Attacks, Depression and Agoraphobia; forcing her to leave the National Program in order to seek help to learn how to live with what had become a crippling disease. Kendra now shares her personal journey and has joined efforts to bring Mental Health issues to the forefront. It is her hope that her story will offer both hope and promise to others dealing with Mental Illness.

In an interview, Kendra explained what she wanted from her therapy:

“I was just looking for a cure. I wanted to be fixed. I wanted to be better and I wanted to get on with my life.”

She explains that these wishes were unrealistic. Obviously she must have been told by her psychologist that her goal of getting cured and getting on with her life was not possible. All she could do was to cope. Unfortunately, Fisher accepted that prognosis.

She also says that she was resistant to therapy. This is not a negative trait. An anxious and fearful person must be resistant. If she is not resistant to change, she does not have anxiety and phobias. Resistance to therapy and change is a characteristic of anxiety-related conditions.

So she began psychotherapy and was put on antidepressants. After 5-6 years of treatment with “every form of therapy” and reading about her condition, she decided to make her anxiety public. Often she speaks about her experience as an advocate for mental health. Her goal is to give hope and a positive message to all who may suffer from anxiety or any other mental health problems.

I applaud Fisher’s commitment in speaking about her problem. Often, as she explains, she has panic attacks in front of the audiences. Her tenacity and willingness to promote mental health awareness are praiseworthy. However, her message to others is besaically all they can do is cope. After 10 years of taking medication and psychotherapy, Kendra Fisher’s message is not totally positive:

“This is something that I have to live for the rest of my life.”

Kendra Fisher would be happy to know that there is a solution to her problem. She can overcome all her anxiety-related conditions once and for all. She can close this chapter of her life. She can get on with her life . Once she overcomes her anxiety, her message would become a more powerful one: she would become a living example of someone that had gone through anxiety, panic, depression and fear but had conquered them all. Now, this would be a powerful message of hope to others.
