Experience Relief from Compulsive Worry 

Worry is fundamentally a cognitive process characterized by negative thoughts and apprehensions about potential future events or outcomes. This mental action is generally more manageable and less intense compared to feelings of anxiety or episodes of panic, both of which can overwhelm an individual's capacity to function normally. Typically, worry is directed and specific, focusing on identifiable concerns or problems that a person might realistically encounter. However, as worry escalates in intensity, frequency, and begins to diverge from rational, justifiable concerns, it increasingly becomes more driven by subconscious elements. This shift marks a transition from productive caution to an exaggerated state that is less anchored in objectively reasonable justifications for such persistent concern.

In its milder forms, worry can serve a constructive purpose by prompting individuals to engage in problem-solving strategies. This proactive approach can lead to the identification and implementation of solutions that effectively address the source of one's worries, thereby alleviating the initial concern. Nevertheless, when worry crosses the threshold from being a motivating force to becoming excessive, problematic, and beyond one's control, it poses significant challenges to mental well-being. Excessive worry can engulf an individual's thought processes, creating a pervasive sense of dread that undermines the ability to concentrate on the present. Consequently, this relentless focus on potential negative future outcomes can significantly diminish the opportunity to experience joy and contentment. By constantly anticipating future problems, individuals rob themselves of the ability to live in and savor the present moment, thereby missing out on the richness of life as it unfolds in real time. This loss of presence can have profound implications for one's overall quality of life, as it hampers the ability to form meaningful connections, enjoy simple pleasures, and maintain a balanced and fulfilling existence.

Progression of Decreased Consciousness as Fear Grows

1

Worry

Worry is primarily a cognitive process that involves negative thoughts about potential future events or outcomes and tends to be more manageable and less intense than anxiety or panic. While worry is often specific and focused on identifiable concerns or problems, it becomes more driven by subconscious elements as it grows more intense, frequent, and less grounded in reasons that objectively justify such a level of ongoing concern.

2

Anxiety

As the connections between anxiety and its initial causes become more elusive, with its underlying factors becoming increasingly submerged in the subconscious, the breadth of the anxiety experience expands and is experienced as more complex and difficult to manage. This intricacy emphasizes the sophisticated character of anxiety, illustrating its ability to go beyond mere worry and profoundly affect individuals on a comprehensive and multi-level scale.

3

Panic

Among worry, anxiety, and panic, panic is the most intensely driven by subconscious causes. Panic attacks can be so sudden, overwhelming, and uncontrollable in their intensity that it's often difficult, in retrospect, to determine what triggered them. Unlike worry, which revolves around specific, identifiable concerns, and anxiety, which can stem from a broader range of identifiable or vague stimuli, panic attacks can erupt without a clear, immediate cause, suggesting a deep-rooted link to subconscious processes.

Asher Fox is a great therapist. You talk to him every week and it's like meeting up with a friend with superpowers who can help you fix all your problems. It's amazing how he can look right through all the bs and help you really dig down to the core of the problems while still making it fun. It really changes the dynamics of self help. You no longer have a problem that needs to be fixed. Now your just another individual that's off the beaten path trying to get out of the woods and you've stumbled upon a buddy with google maps and a set of dirt bikes so get ready and enjoy the ride!!

I initially contacted Asher because my weight, which had always been a problem, had gotten to be a huge problem with my ability to enjoy life. I had no idea his help, wisdom and guidance would not only enable me to lose weight [I have lost 45 pounds, not all the way where I want to be yet, but getting there] but would also help me deal with the other things in my life that made eating so important to me. I am so much more a complete person, happy with my life, and with what I expect my future will bring than I would have ever thought possible. I don't know how he does it, but he sees through the static - I would have used another word, but I cleaned it up for this review - and makes me face reality and then makes me see what it takes for the problem to be fixed. If you think you might need a therapist, then you do. Friends and relatives can't provide therapy - it doesn't work that way. If you are considering Asher, please do yourself the biggest favor you could ever do, and go see him. My only regret is not finding him sooner.
