In brief: Yes, but...

Many supplements can reduce anxiety; some of the best are holy basil, l-theanine, magnesium taurate or glycinate and 5-htp.
However, you many benefit even more by cognitive behavioral therapy, emotional freedom technique, biofeedback ;/or meditation. Homeopathy is also often very successful for this issue but it would be best to consult with a homeopath: http://bit.Ly/18bi6nb.

In brief: Therapy

No approved supplements.
Some prescription medications may help, but should not be used as first line. It will help to see a psychotherapist to analyse your personality and possible underlying causes of these behavior . I believe it can improve. You have to learn how to become wiser.
