It's Complicated

Find a therapist that can help with Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a mental health disorder characterized by excessive and persistent worry and anxiety about a variety of everyday situations and events. The worry and anxiety associated with GAD are often difficult to control and may interfere with daily activities, relationships, and work.

Therapy can be very helpful for individuals with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) by providing them with the tools and skills necessary to manage their anxiety and improve their quality of life. One approach to therapy that has been effective for GAD is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps individuals to identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to anxiety.

By learning how to recognize and challenge anxious thoughts, individuals can gain more control over their anxiety and reduce the impact it has on their life. CBT can also help individuals develop coping strategies and problem-solving skills to manage their anxiety in specific situations.

Another approach to therapy that has been helpful for GAD is mindfulness-based therapy. This approach emphasizes being present in the moment and non-judgmentally observing thoughts and feelings. By learning how to observe and accept anxious thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them, individuals can reduce the impact of anxiety on their life. Mindfulness-based therapy can also help individuals develop skills for managing their anxiety, such as deep breathing, meditation, and other relaxation techniques.

About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.
