Anxiety is a common mental ailment impacting >250 million people worldwide. It adds high comorbidity (specifically for Generalized Anxiety Disorders-GAD and panic disorders) to any treatment. The primary objective of this study was to explore the impact of Regression Therapy on GAD. The secondary objective was to measure changes overall wellbeing and depressive symptoms.
27 individuals participated in the study. GAD, WHO-5 wellbeing index score and MDI (Major Depression Inventory) scores were measured before and after a minimum of 4 sessions spaced across at least 2 weeks. The intervention identified the trauma or negative emotion related to various current life events and addressed the issue by reframing the issue in the mind and releasing the emotions from the body. This was done using specific Regression Therapy techniques (a) Inner Child therapy and integration with the use of body therapy and (b) Gestalt practice of Empty chairs.
21 individuals completed the minimum criteria of 4 sessions over 2 weeks. After the intervention, there was statistically significant reduction in GAD and MDI scores and a significant improvement in WHO-5 wellbeing index score p<.05). This confirms the objectives that Regression Therapy intervention has a statistically significant impact on GAD and it enhances wellbeing while reducing depressive symptoms.
To conclude, Regression Therapy could be helpful for GAD. Future work in this area should increase the sample size, compare this data with a control group and scale-up the work across multiple therapists to understand the effectiveness of the methods.
