Surprising someone with their worst fears could make it worse. They’ll probably stop trusting you too.

Anxiety therapists NEVER surprise you. We collaboratively design exposures that help you manage your anxiety and learn how to face your fears.

Exposures also occur in the natural environment where your fear occurs. While the outcome of an exposure might be a surprise to you the circumstances around it will never be. You’ll always know what you’re getting yourself into. That’s called informed consent.

There’s never a need for extreme fear challenges.
