When I do exposure therapy, why am I not having anxiety attacks? I'm only getting anxiety symptoms, like tension and feeling out of it.

When I do exposure therapy, why am I not having anxiety attacks? I'm only getting anxiety symptoms, like tension and feeling out of it.

Anyway - helping you have a clear understanding is the therapist's role. It's fine to ask as much as you need. I hope it works - it should - be patient and keep asking for guidance till you get it. Best! ...Read more
