Narrative Therapy helps by answering questions via story-telling, re-remembering, retelling, creating maps, or a life tree to explore our current and past storylines. Also, externalizing the problem (non pathological approach) by acknowledge the person is not the problem, the problem is the problem and we are not defined by it (depression, ADHD, anxiety, panic attacks, body image, etc).
Anxiety can become overwhelming, which may include intrusive or bothersome thoughts. A single thought can grow or multiply and feel out of control, however there are ways to both acknowledge and lessen the intensity. We can work with the anxiety, feeling the feelings and the realization that you will survive (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). Also, CBT restructuring the thoughts, examining them or Narrative Therapy via externalizing problems.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT, aka Tapping) is a remarkable treatment engaging the therapist and client by working together on minimizing or eliminating emotional trauma or physical pain being held by past emotional experiences, hence Somatic Therapy. I am currently undergoing training through the internationally well renown program called EFTinternational. Tapping can be done on your own, which I personally find helpful.
