Hi Andrew, I usually feel ok when I am in the toilets. My anxiety is now a lot lower than it used to be and I sometimes experience previous thoughts such as will I or will I not be able to go, but when in this situation I now feel out the anxiety and then let the unconscious mind eventually do its work. It is not a big deal compared to when I first attended a session. As discussed previously, this is something that has been embedded in me for over 15 years so I need to increase the amount of exposure to reduce the anxiety further and turn this previous big deal into no deal.
