Default Re: Headache as symptom of anxiety

interesting... thanks for sharing that persective. I have had clients develop panic symptoms in response to induction exercises... in this case, the client is seeking therapy due to a pretty long (year plus) history of headaches that induce highly anxious cognitions and low level panic attacks that can last hours.

as an update: he's been making some progress with a combination of cognitive restructuring, relaxation training, and imaginal flooding; he does not yet feel "ready" to do the imaginal exposures outside of sessions - I am hoping and predicting that when he's able and willing to engage in this more frequently between sessions, that we'll see more marked improvement.
