Joshua Fletcher is a psychotherapist who specialises in working with anxiety and panic disorder.
He is best known as Anxiety Josh across social media and has quickly become a renowned and reputable figure in the industry.
A self-confessed anxiety disorder nerd, Josh has a deeper level of understanding beyond the textbooks and training. He grew up in Manchester, UK, and 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.
After much learning, he overcame this excessive anxiety and is now a rising leader in his space.
With over 148,000 followers on instagram, 3 best-selling books, a thriving private practice and regular mental health expert on BBC radio… he has turned it all around and now is passionate in helping others do the same.
Josh is registered with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and also an Anxiety UK approved therapist. He 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.
