Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 11, 2013
A staggering 90 percent of people’s fears are considered to be ‘insignificant issues’ which still affect daily living, reports The National Institute of Mental Health.
Fear can result in compulsive behaviors including eating, shopping, exercising and cleaning. Fears are also correlated with addictive patterns such as alcohol and other drug use. Unresolved and unaddressed fears can result in unstable relationships such as abuse and divorce.
In 'Fear, Control and Letting Go: How Psychological Principles and Spiritual Faith Can Help Us Recover from Our Fears', Richard Krummel, MDiv, PhD, describes how a more healthy and productive life can be achieved through faith and love and by addressing the four parts of people; spiritual, intellectual, emotional and behavioral.
“While you are waiting for someone or something else to change, change yourself,” writes Dr. Krummel. “I realized that the fears, roles and themes in my life were not unique. There are strategies that can be practiced that result in effective management of dysfunctional fear.”
Dr. Krummel’s extensive background as a psychologist and as an ordained minister has allowed him the distinct opportunity to reach people confined by fear. With over 40,000 hours of psychotherapy and a professional counseling career exceeding 30 years, Dr. Krummel uses a balanced combination of psychology and theology to address the crippling result that fear can play in people’s lives.
