UK-based psychotherapist Joshua Fletcher, also known as Anxiety Josh on Instagram, has seen a great response to his call for comradery with #diditanyway. Anxiety sufferers have found their voice to share experiences on the platform, with messages to the Instagram star showing resilience to everyday anxieties. From trips to the dentist to using public transport, people are taking back control of their lives thanks to the confidence that a feeling of community brings.
Fletcher is looking to motivate anxiety sufferers and hopes that the momentum created by celebrating these small wins will inspire those to acknowledge and overcome their anxiety – helping to remove the stigma over mental health along the way. He has set up the School of Anxiety, a one-stop-shop for anxiety sufferers providing resources from The Panic Pod, a podcast giving first-hand advice from Fletcher and special guests to his best-selling books such as, ‘Untangling Your Anxiety’.
Fletcher explains that he “wanted to create a hub, packed full of resources to help anxiety sufferers with all things anxiety”
