Welcome to The Panic Room ®
My name is Joshua Fletcher, also known as AnxietyJosh on social media, and I am a psychotherapist specialising in working with anxiety and panic, as well as authoring two popular self-help books on the subject and hosting The Panic Pod podcast.
About Joshua Fletcher
I live and grew up in Manchester, UK. I was once diagnosed with crippling anxiety, suffering from panic attacks, agoraphobia, health anxiety and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), as well as intrusive thoughts, obsessive compulsive behaviours and all the other fun stuff that comes with a nasty anxiety condition.
Eventually, after much learning and work, I overcame this excessive anxiety, wrote two books on the subject, studied it in depth and now I am a fully qualified psychotherapist who works with people who are going through similar things, as well as their own experiences unique to them.
I am registered with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and also an Anxiety UK approved therapist. I obtained my MSc in Counselling Psychology with distinction at Keele University in 2017 and followed this with studying a PGCert in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Salford University.
I work with anxiety by combining the modalities of humanistic and cognitive & behavioural theory, something that I am really passionate about. I continue to study the field of anxiety and disordered anxiety to be the best practitioner I can be.

The Panic Pod is a podcast about anxiety by best-selling author, Psychotherapist and previous sufferer, Joshua Fletcher. Each episode focuses on the topic of anxiety, with a tailored focus towards panic attacks, stress-related anxiety, social anxiety, the literature surrounding the psychology of anxiety and insights from special guests who have been invited to the show.
Each show is conducted in a warm and friendly manner, with emphasis on the power of psychoeducation, humour and reflection to help engage the audience in a topic that remains unmentionable to many people.
