I mimic Cuchculan's post - it may or may not work for you.
Really good to hear that you're giving therapy a shot - can help with defining your therapeutic goals and identify what you really want to work on. From what I read and heard from others, Kava appears to be potentially beneficial for the management/relief of anxiety (Sarris & Kavanagh, 2009). I've personally tried L-theanine before after reading some studies on its effectiveness for stress and anxiety - it's contained in green tea. I'm a little ambivalent about its effects: it felt
like it worked in the short-term (this however could be due to the placebo effect given that I was extremely excited in expecting benefits from it) but did not necessarily help me in the long-term.
Let us know how you go :)
