Education: Mental health professionals by interacting with you (talking) may elucidate your situational anxiety, point to triggers you may not be aware of, and as part of their considerable abilities help you gain strategies to manage your anxiety, before resorting to medication. Understanding your personality and problems through talking is a great medical adjunct and is a field of medicine to admire.
