Brief, intensive exposure therapy can help you quickly overcome your anxiety.
Although exposure therapy is traditionally delivered in weekly or twice-weekly sessions, it often works as well or better when delivered intensely over a brief period of time. Specific phobias can be overcome in a single 3-hour session. OCD can be treated very effectively in four days of intensive therapy. Exposure therapy for PTSD works just as well when delivered intensely over 2 weeks as opposed to spread out over 8 weeks. We developed a highly effective therapy for panic disorder that can be delivered in a single day (click here to learn more). The Illawarra Anxiety Clinic often works with clients who seek brief, intensive exposure therapy to overcome their anxiety problems as quickly as possible. Time to improvement can be an important factor, as when a student has dropped out of school due to panic attacks, or when a worker suffering from PTSD takes a leave of absence. Those who desire immediate improvement and the ability to quickly return to normal life can pursue it through participation in brief, intensive exposure therapy. We work flexibly with clients to arrange an individually-tailored intensive exposure program suited to effectively targeting their anxiety issues within the constraints of their time available.
