When we first think of the word “fear,” it tends to immediately have a very negative impact on us. Fear actually is a universal human experience that is absolutely necessary for survival. Without fear, we would do things that would result in injury or death. However, sometimes the fear we experience is not necessary and results in undesirable experiences or even dysfunctions over time. This type of chronic fear can be crippling to our happiness. Understanding fear is the first step to overcoming it.


Innate vs. Learned Fears
A few fears seem truly innate. An infant will react in ways that indicate fear in response to a sudden noise. More commonly, however, fears are learned from experiences in life. A small child will not hesitate to touch a hot stove, to put dangerous things in his or her mouth, or to approach a threatening animal. The child must learn to avoid these things, and in some cases fear can be the teacher.

We may fear something that is unknown, which is the most common of fears not based in current reality. Fears may also be products of our imagination, having no basis in reality. Of course, it occasionally turns out that there is some real basis for a fear; a basis that we have not consciously recognized. Yet even then, when the basis becomes known, we are usually able to cope with the situation.


Rational vs. Irrational Fears
Some of the fears we learn are completely rational. However, sometimes we learn to fear in an irrational or distorted way, and these fears may take place without conscious awareness of their cause. For example, a child frightened by something in a dark place may learn to fear the dark, and that learned fear may persist for a lifetime. The child is not aware that he or she is being conditioned to fear the dark. While it is entirely rational that he or she would experience fear in that situation, it is irrational for the child to continue to do so as an adult.


Conscious vs. Subconscious Fears
To further understand fear, we must consider the possibility that it may be experienced at a subconscious level of awareness, with only its effect being experienced consciously (the only thing we actually see). Fear of the “unknown” may simply be a conditioned fear that arises as a result of beliefs that have been accepted as true only in the subconscious domain. For example, someone could fear of people of another culture, or experience a fear reaction to a sound or situation that does not seem to have a reason or make sense. In other words, we may have learned to fear something at some time in the past and do not have conscious memory of the event.

The concept of experiencing fear subconsciously may seem unusual. Yet there are several illustrations of this happening. The subconscious may “protect” us by keeping us “big,” thus shielding us from being hurt by producing a weight problem. Or, it may may keep us in a state of readiness for “fight-or-flight,” resulting in various gastro-intestinal disorders such as colitis or ulcers; or the subconscious even may cause us to be introverted rather than to risk criticism.

On the other hand, we may have conscious awareness of the “thing” that is feared without awareness of why it is feared or of the reason for its intensity, as in the case of a phobia. It is also possible to have neither conscious nor subconscious awareness of the “thing” that is feared or of why it is feared. Beyond that, we may have no conscious experience of fear at all, even though the subconscious domain may fearfully respond by producing those protective reactions in the form of behaviors or dysfunctions that appear irrational to us.

Subconscious parts of the mind often control behavior through influences that were “learned” in past situations, that is, at the time the parts came into existence. This behavior can be understood best when the cause is considered in the light of the limited knowledge that was available at that time. For example, the limited knowledge of the small child might result in the child approaching and being attacked by an animal, with a consequent phobia of that animal.


The Effects of Fear

The effects of fear may be physical, psychological, or a combination of both, and may range from minor nuisance to severe illness. A phobia is one psychological example; fears of public speaking, of flying, and of driving on freeways are others. Another might be hostility that manifests itself in obvious or subtle ways. A frightened, cornered animal will exhibit hostility that is the product of fear; the fear being essentially a protective device.

Many physical changes take place when we experience fear; changes that affect virtually every organ of our bodies. Whether conscious or subconscious, a prolonged experience of fear can result in physical dysfunction that may be recognized as illness. Such dysfunction may become evident in any organ or portion of the body. These changes are geared to provide the inner physical conditions needed for “fight-or-flight.” The pattern of blood flow in the body changes so that the muscle systems involved in physical action are amply supplied at the expense of less essential functions such as digestion, which may cease altogether. Glandular activity, muscle tone, and breathing patterns are all altered. Most changes such as these taking place would be regarded as “illness” if they occurred when there was not consciously experienced fear. In summary, many physical ailments may have their actual roots in conflicts or fears we are not consciously unaware of.


The Resolution of Fear

We may learn to fear things that are consciously known to be the cause of our fear reaction, or we may learn to fear things that are not consciously known. When the “things” become known, we are generally able to cope with them by rational means. We may talk ourselves out of it or make use of its energy in some productive way. Or, we may obtain relief simply by considering its basis in a rational way, re-framing our understanding.

However, when we fear something that is unknown, we are prevented from rationally confronting its cause, and we must rely on our other abilities to resolve that fear. After all, it is a subconscious problem, and it will require a subconscious solution. This is where Yagerian Therapy can help with those fears. In being guided by your therapist and relying on your unrecognized, extra-conscious abilities, a solution can usually be found. At that point, the fear will cease to exist any longer.

Behavior: Why Do I Do That?

online-therapy-for-depression

Understanding Behavior

Chances are, we have all at times asked ourselves, “Why do I do that? I don’t want to do it . . . but yet I still do.” Human behavior is one of life’s greatest curiosities. To this date, we have learned much about it, but there is still yet much to be discovered as well. Why do we do the things we do – for better or for worse? Sometimes we know exactly why we do them and we do them intentionally. You may hug your child to show him or her how much you care. You may use a potholder to lift a hot casserole from the oven to avoid being burned. These are examples of choices we make and behaviors we exhibit with conscious understanding. But how do we explain the behaviors we don’t understand – the behaviors we may even feel are out of our own control? Do any of the below examples sound familiar to you?

  • I smoke, but I know it is unhealthy and I want to stop.
  • I get angry a lot, and sometimes for no reason. But that is making my friendships suffer.
  • I am terrified of dogs, but they are everywhere around me and I don’t want to be afraid.
  • I feel anxiety and panic when I have to speak to someone new. I just can’t do it, but it will be important in my new job.
  • I really want to stop drinking too much alcohol, but every day I just can’t resist it.
  • I want to join the new book club at work, but I am too scared to because I am not good enough at reading.
  • My doctor says I need to eat more healthy foods, but I can’t stop eating the unhealthy ones.
  • I wish I could stop biting my fingernails, but even when I try really hard not to I still keep doing it.

These are just a few of the many, many possible unexplained behaviors. In cases such as these, the conscious mind may not be fully aware (or have any awareness at all) of the reason for the particular behavior. Yet it keeps happening as if it must be done, and this often finds the individual at a loss or suffering…especially if the behavior is a dysfunctional or negative one. The degrees of suffering can vary from minor annoyances to severe life debilitations. However, Yagerian Therapy teaches us that no matter the degree, it is possible to alleviate or completely eliminate the behaviors even though we do not have conscious understanding of why they occur.

To understand how this is possible, we must first understand why we don’t have that conscious understanding of why we do what we do. That answer lies in conditioning. Behavior is determined by life’s conditioning. Whether it is constructive or destructive, it is the way you have been conditioned to behave. Beliefs and values form the basis for much behavior, and they too come from conditioning. If not, then where do they come from? A belief that stealing is wrong comes from being taught that it is wrong. A belief that stealing is right (and some would teach others it is), comes from being taught it is right. Moreover, unless you are a rare exception, you did not have anything to say about any of the ways you were conditioned to be.

When we sometimes find ourselves doing or saying things that are inappropriate, it is important to understand they are learned behaviors. To illustrate, select some behavior of your own. Look at its beginning and you will find that it began in some situation, at some specific time, for some particular reason. You were not born with it – it was learned.

As we mature, we learn all manner of skills, values, and beliefs. We learn what is right and what is wrong. We learn what we can do and we learn that there are limits to what we can do. Sometimes the limits we learn are false limits, limits that are based on false information or on misunderstanding, and those limits become just as real as other limits. Such false limits may relate to physical strength or endurance; they may also relate to mental capacities such as memory or intelligence.

Conditioning is learning even if there is not awareness that the learning is taking place. So sometimes you are taught something even though you were not aware it was being taught to you. Yet it became embedded into your mind. As we mature, most of what we learn is positive. We learn to walk and talk. We learn to love and to cope with life in productive ways. Yet, sometimes we learn false, negative, or dysfunctional behaviors. We may have learned to get our way by a display of temper, and we may have internalized that as a way of coping as adults. We may have taken solace in smoking during a difficult time in our lives, and now cannot quit despite best efforts. We may have learned to fear something irrationally or to express our emotions in physical ways that have become the physical dysfunctions we now identify as negative behaviors or even illnesses.

Whether we express an emotion in a functional way or repress it and then express it in a dysfunctional way depends upon how we learned to express it in the first place. When we learned to express the emotion, it was logical that we would have learned to do so as we did, even though it may appear irrational and dysfunctional in our present life. For example, if we learned to fear the dark, it was in circumstances in which it was logical to be afraid; it was logical that we would have formed an association between fear and dark. Similarly, if we experienced pain and gained attention because of it, we might later continue to experience subconsciously generated pain for that learned (now subconscious) reason. And we might do so despite conscious desire not to feel pain. This explains why we may not know why we do the things we do, and why we may feel powerless to stop them.

Changing Behavior

The Yagerian Method’s foundation in conditioning provides us with a solution for changing that conditioning. If we are indeed conditioned creatures – then we can also be reconditioned creatures. Although we may feel powerless about some of these behaviors, we still possess the ability to change with the motivation to change.

We have no choice about the way we were conditioned to be; however, under certain conditions we can influence our future. If it is true that decisions, values, and behavior are determined by conditioning, and if it is also true that we had little (if any) influence on what that conditioning was to be, we are faced with the question of whether or not we had choice about our behavior at any point in the past. We must look to the future for choice. We may have choice about the future; we can introduce new conditioning into our lives through new life experiences that will move us in the direction we wish to go. By learning from past mistakes and from past victories, we can choose (make decisions) about our future.

If it is true that you had no choice about your decisions, values and behavior, it follows that you should not be blamed (or blame yourself) for them. If you made the best decision it was possible for you to have made – as you were conditioned to have made – the words “blame” and “guilt” cease to have meaning. Freed from the burdens these words impose, their negative consequences are avoided.

We can change our unwanted behaviors in the future by meeting three conditions. First, having defined the change to be made, we must be open to the possibility that the change can be made. Second, we must know how to make the change. Finally, we must be motivated to make the change. That is all we need in order to free ourselves from unwanted behaviors – seems quite simple, really. Therefore, although you may not at this point know it is possible to make the changes you desire, there is little to lose and much to gain by being optimistic!

Yagerian Therapy is evidence-based, revealing it to be the most effective and efficient therapy available to accomplish change. The Yagerian Method guides us to discover understanding of the dysfunctional conditioning we could to find on our own, and then helps us to recondition it for the better. It satisfies the “how to” requirement for change to happen. The motivation to change must come from your conscious reasoning. Is your level of motivation sufficient to prompt action? That is all you need to get started on freeing yourself!

What behaviors are troubling you? Are you ready to make a change with Yagerian Online Therapy?

If you find yourself troubled by behaviors you don’t understand and are ready to take control over them, the Yagerian Method can show you how. You can discover the root causes of those mysterious behaviors, recondition them, and then the behavior will cease to exist. You have the chance to be free and in control once again! And. . . .you can even carry out the treatment yourself from the comfort of your own home with the online version.

Several conditions are now treatable with Yagerian Online Therapy, including behavior-related afflictions.

Understanding Chronic Pain and Learning to Heal

understanding-pain

What is the purpose of physical pain?

When we hear the word “pain,” our instinct is often to cringe and immediately think of bad experiences. Pain can come to us in so many different forms, and from multiple causes. So how do we sort all of that out in order to understand it?

Albert Schweitzer once called pain “a more terrible lord of mankind than even death itself.” Even so, pain is essential to life; we could not live without it. Does that sound strange? Consider this. We would behave in self-destructive ways without being aware that we were doing so if pain did not indicate that to us. Pain is the mind’s way of getting attention. However, pain can also be dysfunctional, inhibiting awareness of life’s values and meaning. Yagerian Therapy looks at this negative side of pain in a unique and productive way.

  • Pain is about perception, and perception can be modified.
  • Pain is always real to the person in pain.
  • Chronic pain always has subconscious purpose.
  • Physical pain may be caused by either physical or emotional trauma.

One way to look at all of this is to see pain’s purpose as a protective mechanism, regardless of its cause. This purpose is rarely recognized consciously (to our immediate awareness) at the time of the experience. Further, when this immediate protection happens again and again, a pattern of this pain response is established. Such a pattern is known as chronic pain, or pain which recurs over and over. When this chronic pain cycle happens, the original purpose of the pain likely no longer even exists. In this situation the pain is maintained subconsciously for reasons that were real and valid in the past – when the pain began – but are not real or valid in current life. Yet, the pain will continue until a change intervenes, even if we cannot seem to explain why.

 

What is a subconscious cause of physical pain?

Those dysfunctional purposes causing chronic and/or unexplained pain are most often not immediately recognizable because they exist in our subconscious – a realm in which we don’t have complete understanding or control of what is happening. Therefore, we may not know why the pain is happening because it is out of our conscious reach.

For example, there might be a subconscious belief that we are unaware of, a belief that pain is deserved, inevitable, or unavoidable. Subconsciously inspired self-punishment is often involved in causing and sustaining pain; some long-forgotten act can cause such self-punishment. Furthermore, relief from emotional pain can often be achieved by experiencing physical pain. In this case, your mind attempts to protect you from emotional pain you are experiencing by causing physical pain instead. In short, any imaginable reason could be the cause, and our imaginations know no limits . . . even if we are not aware of them.

 

How does Yagerian Therapy help patients to overcome pain?

The fundamentals of the Yagerian Method teach us that the task of relieving subconsciously-inspired pain must include identifying and resolving the subconscious basis for the pain. When there is both conscious and subconscious recognition that the pain no longer has valid purpose, the sufferer can experience relief.

The multitude of mental parts developed throughout an individual’s life usually function in harmony, with common direction and purpose. Sometimes one or more parts may function independently, “doing their own thing,” and cause some dysfunction. Because sufferers need relief from pain, they have a very real and current desire to change that dysfunction . . . since that is what will relieve the pain itself. The more difficult part of this is that it does not simply happen because we want it to. In most cases, we cannot make a conscious decision to change the problem causing the pain and then then have it instantly disappear.

That doesn’t mean there is not a way, however! Yagerian Therapy tells us that some form of communication must take place between the parts within the subconscious mind. But how is this possible when we don’t have the conscious awareness and knowledge we need to do this? The Yagerian Method guides the patient to communicate with his or her higher level of intelligence, named Centrum for convenience, in order to open that gate of communication to the subconscious mind. That is where the journey to find the source of the pain begins. When Centrum identifies this dysfunctional part causing the pain, that part may also then be reconditioned to change its protective measures. This is how you can actually reach and change the actual sources of pain. Amazing, isn’t it?

Subconscious Parts: The Hidden Domain of Our Mind We Don’t Think About

As you grew up, you learned to walk, talk, and demonstrate more complex skills. Each time you learned something new, a change took place in your mind. Something was added that was not there before; a new “part” of your mind was created. Such “parts” were formed and continue to exist in your mind. However, we may not be aware of them because they reside in the subconscious domain rather than in our consciousness. These parts may also possibly control your behavior without you being consciously aware that they are doing so. We walk without thinking about how to do so, sometimes we drive to locations without focusing on the directions, smokers light cigarettes without thinking, and other compulsive behaviors of many types are common. Many of them are functional: however, there are behaviors which can also be dysfunctional. It also seems true that such “parts” of the mind exist (and may control behavior in some way), without the fact of their existence being known to other parts of the mind, including consciousness. This explains why you may not have clear awareness of them, or any awareness at all.

The multitude of mental parts developed in the course of living usually function in harmony, with common direction and purpose. Sometimes one or more parts may function independently, causing some dysfunction and resulting in a current desire for change. However, such instances are the exception and cooperation between the parts seems to be the rule. This tells us that some form of communication must take place between the parts within the subconscious mind. But how is this possible when we don’t have the conscious awareness and knowledge we need to do this?

 

What is “Centrum?”

The key to true healing with the Yagerian Method is the existence of a domain of the mind having mental abilities that exceed conscious abilities. The abilities of this “extra-conscious” domain have been confirmed in the treatment of thousands of patients by hundreds of therapists using Yagerian Therapy. The domain is named “Centrum.” It is through Centrum that we find the way to communicate with the subconscious parts of our mind when we need to change something. When requests and questions are posed to Centrum during a session of Yagerian Therapy, it is the extra-conscious part of the mind that is being addressed.

Centrum is intelligent; which is to say Centrum is capable of learning, of reasoning, and of making decisions. Moreover, Centrum is capable of independent thinking and communicating with other parts of the mind, including consciousness. Centrum is well-intentioned and will cooperate in accomplishing consciously-desired change. However, Centrum seems to lack the motivation to change. Motivation is essential for change and also an element that must be provided by consciousness, so you will consciously provide the motivation necessary to Centrum. As you are guided to use Yagerian Therapy, Centrum is enlisted to do the work of therapy. Tasks of investigation, communication, and persuasion will be requested of Centrum, but cannot be demanded against the will of Centrum.

Although many of Centrum’s further capabilities are yet to be discovered, we do know this extra-conscious domain is the focus of the control of life. Centrum has abilities that far exceed conscious abilities. Examples include the ability to access memories that are not available to consciousness, the ability to communicate with different parts that are stored in the subconscious domain, and other abilities that have not yet been defined. Those known abilities are utilized during the application of Yagerian Therapy.

 

What is the best way to take advantage of Centrum’s abilities in order to heal?

For maximum benefit from the Yagerian Method, navigate and read through this website with an open mind. Some of the information you read may surprise you or seem too “out there,” or even unbelievable. However, patients helped by this therapy will be the first individuals to tell you to avoid forming conclusions until you have tried it . . . because it works.

As you venture into Yagerian Therapy and start to engage with Centrum, remember that you may be consciously unaware of the “thinking” that takes place in your extra-conscious mind, and you may be surprised at some of the responses that come from that domain. Most of those responses will be consistent with your conscious opinions; others may be confusing. Centrum may even communicate something you don’t consciously agree with or understand. It is important, even in that event, that you trust those communications because they will lead you to the healing you need. You will be exposed in a direct way to the extra-conscious abilities that exceed your conscious abilities. The guidance of the therapy uses Centrum to recondition the parts of your mind which are unreachable to you consciously. When those parts are reconditioned, the symptoms they were causing cease to exist.

Therefore, you may be amazed at the power of your own mind to heal the suffering you have been feeling for years and years. The guidance of the therapy uses Centrum to recondition the parts of your mind which are unreachable to you consciously.

The essential purpose of Yagerian Therapy is to accomplish change by reconditioning negative, conditioned influences from past experiences. The Yagerian Method takes the patient through the process of identifying those influences and resolving them by reconditioning.

The Concept of Conditioning

concept-of-conditioning

What is conditioning?

The term “conditioning” generally refers to what is popularly known as “classical” or “Pavlovian” conditioning. The historical identification of this phenomenon dates back to the work of Ivan Pavlov (1902), a Russian physiologist whose experiments with dogs salivating in response to a bell objectively defined its meaning. Simply defined, conditioning is learning. Further, it is learning which may occur without awareness that learning is taking place, and learning that can prompt involuntary physical responses, sometimes taking place without conscious awareness.

We know many things we do not pay attention to. We know how to walk and talk; we drive a car and type words; we learned these skills. To be sure, at the point in time when we were learning them, we were paying attention – conscious attention – but now we pay attention to the objective of what we are doing, not to our actions. We simply stand up and walk; we are oblivious to the act itself; walking has become a conditioned response.

It is no surprise that we are conditioned by the experiences we have. We were taught to believe what we believe. We have the skills, values, and limitations we learned in the course of living. Many factors (genetic, spiritual, etc.) impact our lives, but life experience is responsible for the conditioning that results in most presenting psychological problems. In essence, we learn to feel good, anxious, or depressed; or to experience chronic pain or nightmares. We are conditioned creatures. Our beliefs, values, and behaviors are the consequences of earlier conditioning.

We learn many things without being consciously aware we are learning them, and we are conditioned by what we learn. As an example, this type of learning can happen when an intense emotion blocks the individual’s conscious awareness that learning is taking place. A little girl bitten by a dog is aware of being bitten, yet is not aware that she is learning to fear dogs. Instead, her attention is overwhelmed by fear. That fear can instantly become associated with “dogs” and can persist for a lifetime. This is an example of how emotion can play a key role in conditioning.

 

How does conditioning affect us?

On the positive side, the consequence of conditioning is responsible for much of what is good in life. For example, we have the benefits of good health and physical fitness, efficient immune function, mental alertness, and productively directed energy, not to mention our skills, values and beliefs.

On the other side, negative conditioning can have negative consequences. In the example of the little girl and the dog bite, the child unknowingly became conditioned to fear all dogs from that experience, thus having a negative consequence in the child’s life. The range of such fears can reach beyond dogs; we can be conditioned to be fearful of many things without apparent cause, or to be depressed or to behave in undesired ways. It is also becoming increasingly apparent that problems such as learning disabilities, memory limitations, and even chronic pain may also be caused by negative conditioning.

Socially unacceptable behavior occurs because of conditioning, as does acceptable behavior; it depends on the experiences and the understanding of those experiences at the time they occur. Unfortunately, especially in early life, our understanding may be limited or distorted, leading to regrettable conditioned responses. Compulsions, habits, obsessions, fingernail biting, stuttering, tics, and self-defeating behavior are all examples of this.

We are not immune to the influence of conditioning… even as adults. Over time we have learned defenses and coping skills, and yet we still have periods of vulnerability to unfortunate conditioning. Most often, these periods occur during episodes of intense emotion, periods when defenses are ineffective because of those emotions. Experiences of fear, grief, and rage are essentially universal, even if they are only brief and during those experiences we may integrate some element of the moment without being consciously aware that it is happening. For both children and adults, experiences involving intense emotion are accompanied by elevated suggestibility. Emotion compromises our ability to think clearly. Also, repetition is not required for conditioning to occur if the stimulus is joined with intense emotion. As with the girl being bitten by the dog, when the event is emotionally charged, it only has to occur once to have lasting effect.

 

Why is the concept of conditioning important in Yagerian Therapy?

Yagerian Therapy recognizes the critical role conditioning plays in our lives – both for positive and negative reasons. The method itself is based upon four important concepts related to conditioning:

  • We are conditioned by the experiences we have in life, whether for good or for ill.
  • We are the products of conditioning from our life experiences.
  • We believe and behave as we were conditioned to believe and behave.
  • We can be reconditioned.

Life experiences condition us in different ways. The consequences of conditioning have significance far beyond what has been commonly recognized; impacting mental, emotional, and physical experience. The upside is that we can accomplish correction by reconditioning, including correcting the influences integrated during early life experiences.

We are conditioned creatures, so we have the ability to be both conditioned and reconditioned. Reconditioning happens in many positive ways. We learn new information, new skills, and new values.

Our conditioning changes as we learn different values, skills, and contexts, so it follows that resolving an undesired consequence of conditioning might best be accomplished by reconditioning.

The essential purpose of Yagerian Therapy is to accomplish change by reconditioning. The Yagerian Method takes the patient through the process of identifying the negative, conditioned influences from past experiences and resolving them by reconditioning.

Free Yourself With Online Therapy for PTSD

Online Therapy for PTSD

PTSD is so complex and hard to understand. How can online therapy for PTSD with the Yagerian Method possibly help me to overcome it?
When a person experiences or witnesses a traumatic and/or life-threatening event, a lasting impression may be left on the individual’s life, developing into the mental health problem generally known as PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder). It is common after incidents of combat, natural disasters, assaults, and car accidents, but may be triggered by any number of traumatic (physical or psychological) causes. PTSD is often very complex due to the personal nature of the traumatic events, and the fact that it may consist of a wide variety of symptoms across patients. Those symptoms may also occur to varying degrees and at various times. The Yagerian Method’s online therapy for PTSD recognizes this complexity and helps you to first specifically identify your symptoms (nightmares, bad memories, negativity, anger, depression, fear, avoidance, low self-esteem, etc.), then takes steps toward actual treatment by helping you to uncover the root causes, so they may be treated at their source. With online therapy for PTSD, the focus is on recognizing conditioned influences, and then reconditioning those influences to resolve the trauma. The goal is therefore to eliminate the PTSD, rather than to just mask or partially relieve the symptoms, and online therapy for PTSD guides you through that process to make it a reality. The PTSD logically disappear when the subconscious causes have been found and resolved using online therapy for PTSD.

What symptoms of PTSD does online therapy for PTSD treat? How is it different from medication?
PTSD can be extremely crippling to a person’s quality of life. The collection of symptoms which may be attributed to PTSD is large and varies from person to person. Patients may experience terror or fear, nightmares, relationship and employment problems, depression, anxiety, hopelessness or shame, and/or physical pain, to name only a few. Online therapy for PTSD recognizes that no matter which clusters of these symptoms are holding the patient back, they are all barriers to happiness and quality of life. Since online therapy for PTSD seeks to treat each cause, the answer is that all PTSD symptoms are treatable with online therapy for PTSD. Once your online therapy for PTSD helps you to find those root causes, you are guided to recondition them to support present life; essentially to have those parts let go of the past which created them and make way for present life. Online therapy for PTSD reconditions these parts, persuading them to support current life rather than to continue to respond and react as in the past.

Medication is often prescribed to treat PTSD symptoms, and it may help patients; at least temporarily and to varying degrees. Online therapy for PTSD is different from medication in that it is treating the causes rather than the symptoms of the condition, providing a more permanent and lasting solution to the problem. Further, with online therapy for PTSD, there are no side effects to deal with, as may manifest with medication.

This type of online therapy for PTSD sounds very different from other methods I have tried . . . does it actually work? Why should I try it?

Should you try online therapy for PTSD? PTSD patients of the Yagerian Method will be the first individuals to tell you to “try it – it just works!” and “Why wouldn’t you want to live a life free of PTSD?” Numerous PTSD patients have reported amazing success with the Yagerian Method, even where many other methods have failed them. Now, with the Yagerian Method available as online therapy for PTSD, individuals suffering from the debilitating symptoms can find relief in a private way at a low cost. With patients reporting an average of 81% improvement of symptoms after only 2.5 hours of treatment, the method’s success is well-documented. And, it is easy to get started today!

Online Therapy for Chronic Anger with the Yagerian Method

Online Therapy for Chronic Anger

Is there constant outrage, continual, persistent, or relentless anger in your life?  Read on to find out more about anger and how Online Therapy for Chronic Anger using the Yagerian Method can help.

What is Anger?
Anger is an emotion that involves a strong uncomfortable and hostile response to a perceived provocation, hurt or threat. Anger can occur when a person feels their personal boundaries are being or are going to be violated. Some have a learned tendency to react to anger through retaliation as a way of coping. Online Therapy for Chronic Anger offers a way to change.

 “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured” ~  Mark Twain

 Chronic anger may come to dominate a person’s thinking, feeling, and behavior.

An anger problem can be extremely difficult to deal with and overcome as in most cases it is hard to recognize and acknowledge. The reason it is so complicated and hard to deal with is because most of us only identify the problem once the damage has been done.

Feelings – Normal vs. not-normal
Anger is a normal, healthy emotion and a reaction to certain stimuli, as are fear, sadness, or any other emotional response. Although anger did play a crucial role in survival in our early history, its role has diminished greatly in modern society. This does not mean that it is no longer relevant; in fact it is still useful in many situations.

Road rage, explosive anger and domestic violence are examples of repeating intermittent anger and are certainly not normal. Chronic or continuous anger can lead to unhappy and dysfunctional people. Online Therapy for Chronic Anger has been successful in treating anger issues and now Online Therapy for Chronic Anger is available to you!

Consequences of Anger
Physically there are changes during a bout of anger such as changes in blood pressure, respiration, blood chemistry, and glandular functioning. Anger consumes energy at a rapid rate and compromises functioning of the immune system. If continued over time, these physical effects might be diagnosed as a physical illness, and Chronic Anger can cause physical illness.

The Vehicle for Change
The Yagerian Method has been remarkably effective and exceeding efficient in treating a wide variety of problems including Chronic Anger in an office setting.  Now you have the opportunity to access the computerized version and work in the comfort of your own home with the convenience of choosing the time that is best for you.  The Online Therapy for Chronic Anger is a computerized program using the Yagerian Method that provides guidance and direction as you to follow along through a series of logical steps.
