CoachJenK :

Hi tell me a bit more about what happens in these social settings?

CoachJenK :

I would want to know how long this is going on and if there has been something recent that has triggered these feelings in you. It is possible to work through these issues. One option is to get some added support in addition to you coming here. A therapist may also want to evaluate to see if you would benefit from medication. You can also check out www.SteveGJones.com he has some wonderful self hypnosis Cd's on this topic and you listen at night before bed and they are truly helpful.

Customer:

i feel very anxious,sweaty,lightheaded.It has been going on since adolescence.

CoachJenK :

yes all of those symptoms do indicate anxiety. Have you gotten help for this before?

Customer:

no

CoachJenK :

I think you could really benefit from that. You need that safe space to explore what goes on for you.

CoachJenK :

would you be willing? you deserve to be free from these feelings and you can be with the right support

Customer:

you mean willing to go see a physician?

CoachJenK :

a therapist

Customer:

where will i get that?

CoachJenK :

tell me your zip code and I can try and help you locate someone in your area.

Customer:

CoachJenK :

CoachJenK :

I will be back in a few minutes. can you wait

Customer:

CoachJenK :

CoachJenK :

http://fwfamilytherapy.com/

CoachJenK :

The first one is a man and the second a woman. I dont know which you would prefer to speak with.

CoachJenK :

I would call both and see how it feels for you.

Customer:

do you think i should go straight into therapy or get evaluated by a psychiatrist first.

CoachJenK :

Either one would be fine. If you call these individuals and let them know of your desire to be evaluated for medication, i am sure they both work closely with a psychiatrist. I believe the therapy will help a great deal and medication if it seems warranted.

Customer:

can you get their cell numbers for me?

CoachJenK :

I dont have access to that...I would look at the links I sent you and click on the contact us buttons

Customer:

i'll like if you can recommend a psychiatrist.

CoachJenK :

let me take another look and see if there is a listing.

CoachJenK :

CoachJenK :

Customer:

CoachJenK :

ok. so check out the names I have given you and also check out the website for some hypnosis cd's. I know things can be better for you and I wish that for you.

Customer:

Thanks.
