Thank you for responding. I'm sure a workshop would help but wonder if I should be looking at the January workshop as I'm in London anyway. It would also be tied up with the whole thing of talking about it to my family because going away for the weekend on my own isn't the sort of thing that I would normally do!
You are of course right that these demons/fears never go away and that everything I've read points to CBT being the best option.
Strangely, I don't particularly feel the need to defeat it completely but I would really like to get to the stage where it's in its mildest form. That would be my baby steps
