Don’t run away from panic, Joshua Fletcher

Trailer Full video

After suffering from anxiety, culminating in a full-blown panic attack at work, Joshua Fletcher studied how he could effectively treat himself. His best advice was “stop trying to fix yourself” which was genuinely liberating. He qualified as a psychotherapist and founded The Panic Room. Josh encourages people just to experience their panic. He says the biggest mistake that anxious people make is when they build a narrative that there’s something wrong with them, that they’re broken. “Don’t run away from panic. Don’t let it become secondary fear – being scared about what you’re scared about.”
