Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) July 13, 2009 -- Nic Lucas, special guest on Sleep With The Experts webinar series
Anxiety is widespread and affects people from all walks of life. It affects our days, and our nights. Understanding that anxiety is more than often a behavioral problem than a medical problem can be the first step toward recovery.
In his late twenties Nic Lucas developed panic disorder, and then generalised anxiety disorder and was affected by this problem for 4-5 years. During this time he did not take medication and received no formal psychological therapy.
Nic has been free of anxiety for 7 years now and has written a book and developed an online program for anxiety sufferers. This was prompted in part by the large number of patients Nic sees in his private practice who confide to having 'anxiety' for the first time - and who have never sought help. Nic calls these, "The invisible sufferers of anxiety".
Nic Lucas is a public health researcher at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Sydney where he is undertaking his PhD in the reliability of diagnostic tests. He has a masters degree in health science, a masters degree in pain medicine, and a grad. dip. in clinical epidemiology. He has lectured here in Australia and internationally on pain medicine, neurobiology and research methods and he is an editor of an international scientific journal. He is also a qualified osteopath - and has been in private practice for 10 years, treating people who primarily present with physical pain.
Nic Lucas is this weeks featured expert in the Sleep With The Experts webinar series.
