If you’re on Instagram and you suffer with anxiety, the chances are you have heard of Joshua Fletcher, also known as @anxietyjosh. A former anxiety sufferer, turned psychotherapist, Fletcher is also the author of two best-selling books, Anxiety: Panicking about Panicand Untangle Your Anxiety: A Guide To Overcoming An Anxiety Disorder.
Fletcher has used the momentum from his Instagram presence to set up The School of Anxiety, a website offering a centralised hub for everything he produces. It’s home to his podcasts, books, his course on overcoming anxiety and Fletcher has plans for the school to become the number one resource for all things anxiety with the help of an Anxiety Encyclopaedia.
“I want to create a library of accurate information for people to pull from, helping them to identify and overcome anxiety by removing the mystery that surrounds it.
The Anxiety Encyclopaedia will be written in a way that’s easy to understand, based on my own experiences as a sufferer and therapist and designed to empower those who feel that they may have lost control of their lives thanks to whatever symptom they are experiencing.”
Fletcher is looking to add the Anxiety Encyclopaedia to the school before the end of the year and you can find out more about other projects Anxiety Josh is working on, once they are released, at www.schoolofanxiety.com.
