Overcome Your GAD with Online Therapy

Category: GAD | Last updated: October 18th, 2018 | Reviewed and approved by:

Feeling agitated and anxious and becoming sad and tired due to pressure and setbacks is just natural. It is something that we all encounter in life. But if you feel that you can seldom or never control your anxiety and fear and that this has had long-term negative effects on your life, then you might be suffering from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).

GAD is characterized by chronic worrying about basically every aspect of your life, including work, money, health and relationships. This can, in turn, lead to common anxiety symptoms like insomnia, tense muscles, headache, grinding of teeth, excess sweating, dry mouth, rapid heartbeat, stomach problems and a need to urinate more often.

Our therapy for GAD is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). With the help of CBT and your therapist, you will learn how to identify the negative and irrational thoughts that cause your anxiety and replace them with positive and rational thoughts and behavior patterns. Using this GAD online therapy program you will learn relaxation techniques, problem solving strategies, ways to enhance your self-esteem and overcome your fears. Your therapist will help you to gradually expose yourself to situations that cause your worry, and eventually you will be able to do this feeling less anxious and with a greater sense of mastery. You will learn skills to take control over your worry, so you feel more empowered in life.

"I really enjoy the daily interaction with a therapist and find it better to communicate in writing where I can organize my thoughts as opposed to a face to face office visit."

"I find many of these tips and tricks useful and easy. I am hoping they will be something that will continue to help me in the future. The worksheets have been interesting and reflective. The videos are informative and the program is easy to follow. I have had a couple good sessions with my therapist, I wish that the sessions were longer. 30 minutes just isn't long enough to get all the information out. However she has given me some useful tricks for my bag that I can use to help me in times of need."

"This program has been beneficial to me.
The videos and worksheets have been especially helpful.

I chose not to have live chats with my therapist, but I feel her written notes and encouragement to me were beneficial. I moved along a lot faster in the program over the course of a full month than the feedback I’ve gotten. To be fair, I did sessions 6-8 all this weekend, so she hasn’t had time to review. I was through session 5 by last weekend and devoted a lot of time to one part of the session and would love to have had comments through as far as I’d completed. My latest feedback at the end of this final week of my month-long subscription is still just through session 2. At least that’s all I can find. I have implemented and practiced all the suggestions and and completed all of the exercises except for one that I skipped on purpose. My current subscription expires in two days.

I wish there were a search feature for therapist feedback and maybe there is, but I don’t see one. It can be a little tedious going back to each worksheet to find something I want to comment on if I didn’t do it initially. I don’t care for the Action Plan calendar. It’s not user-friendly. I’d like to copy one day’s actions to another day without having to start over. It’s too time consuming. Some days I do the same things. The Notes app on my phone is a lot easier to use and I can record what I need to do with with audio.

I’m on the list to work with a local CBT specialist in my area. So, I signed up for this program to do in the interim while I was waiting for my first appointment with her. I’m not going to continue with the online program, but I’m grateful for it and for what I’ve learned and for the fact that it helped me learn about new ways to challenge my thinking and re-channel it to more positive thoughts that bring about better behavior. I will continue to use what I’ve learned, particularly journaling and re-directing my thinking. I already do yoga and meditate. I recommend giving this program a try if you’re not sure. I’d do it again.
