Exposure and Relapse Prevention Therapy (ExRP) is a therapeutic procedure based heavily on a behavioral framework, which has proved beneficial in the treatment of various disorders – particularly those associated with anxiety.

It’s possible that at one time or another, one does something out of impulsivity – without even reflecting on it nor having a rational reason to have done it. For example, eating excessively when one becomes anxious, getting in an argument without cause, or doing some online shopping for things that are not needed.

It may not be difficult to imagine the life of an individual with hoarding disorder – an existence surrounded by piles of stuff that will never be used, living amongst tons of impractical items. Moreover, the individual experiences high levels of loneliness and sadness, and often faces the judgement and misunderstanding from those around him/her/them.

A panic attack is the sudden experience of intense fear and dread, usually accompanied by tremors, agitation, confusion, dizziness, fainting spells, nausea, difficulty breathing, and thoughts that something terrible might happen. The cause of a panic attack is not always clear.

Agoraphobia is the most common and perhaps the most debilitating of phobias. It is the experience of anxiety and dread during a variety of situations during which an individual believes will not be able to escape, and/or asking for help is difficult or embarrassing.
