Counseling works: Talking with a therapist is often the most helpful intervention for dealing with anxiety. Although medications may reduce symptoms, the counseling teaches you more effective skills to cope with anxiety for the long term.

For my money, it's:: Talk therapy that goes well beyond the line, "tell me how u feel about that." seek someone w/ expertise in diagnosis &treatment of anxiety disorders. It's vital 2understand what anxiety is, how it ticks. Benefit from specific approaches proven 2B effective in helping ppl develop skills 2manage anxiety (esp cbt, act, mindfulness). If really struggling, meds can b important. http://www.anxietybc.org.
