Outline of Treatment approach
I work intensively and briefly with people on their anxiety (and many other) difficulties. I focus on what has caused the anxiety; what is keeping it going; and what has to be done to get over it. My approach, called Smart Therapy (ST) is systematic, evidence-based in cutting-edge neurological research, solution-focused, and, most importantly, it works. Over the past two decades I have worked with thousands of anxious people helping them to recover completely from their distress.

My book entitled 'Don't panic you can overcome anxiety without drugs' is available from the ADAVIC bookstore.

I have recently produced two phone/tablet app's for recovery. The iphone app is entitled 'SmarTherapy' and the Android version is entitled 'Smart Therapy'. They cost $1.95.

I currently have six wonderful clinicians working in my private practice and they are all trained in the ST approach.

Overall, I prefer to work with people who are not taking medication but I am happy to take time while people slowly reduce their medication dosage.
