It is not for everybody, nor is it a miracle cure. I've used it with a number of survivors and it has done some pretty good stuff with trauma victims. With severe anxiety, there may need to be some work to reduce the anxiety and get the person able to self-regulate (i.e., calm down with breathing, calm scene, etc.) However, I'm really not that personally familiar with using it for anxiety disorders. I got a protocol of using it with severe obsessive-compulsive disorder for a guy I've been seeing for almost a year. He still can't relax enough to effectively try it for the ocd.
