Clients may also come with a combination of anxiety and depression, both triggering off and maintaining the other. Having more complete knowledge of anxiety disorders and problems helps the counsellor to make distinctions between environmental stresses and underlying anxiety problems and to select appropriate interventions. Anxiety is a common, normal response to danger, taken to extremes, and depends on the individual's appraisals of the threat in different situations. Anxiety as an appropriate response to danger may have signi®cant evolutionary advantage, enabling us to survive in a hostile world, but being able to distinguish different types of danger is central to reacting with appropriate `®ght or ¯ight' rather than being paralysed with anxiety in daily life.
The Central Role of Avoidance in Maintaining Anxiety When some situation or thing makes us anxious or uncomfortable, we naturally want to avoid it. People with anxiety problems often use avoidance as a main strategy for coping with anxiety, which both maintains their anxiety and causes further problems. The main problem is that fear and anxiety can grow out of proportion if the individual does not risk entering a situation where they can make realistic appraisals of the threat: either it is worse than predicted, in which case the person needs to ®nd ways to cope, or it is much less frightening ± the more likely scenario with anxiety problems.
Cognitive therapy focuses on problem maintenance Anxiety is kept going by many factors: changing what maintains the anxiety is often more the focus of therapy, than is understanding why the person became anxious. Both, however, are rich sources of meaning. How people have tried to cope with or manage anxiety in the past is now thought to be counterproductive. Understandably, we do anything to reduce our bad feelings, such as avoiding anxiety-provoking situations and developing ways, often subtle, of controlling anxiety.
