I frequently experience symptoms of depersonalization or "backseat" living. Feeling completely disconnected from others, my own life, and occasionally, my own body. I know this sounds crazy, but I also know this is all going on 'in my head'. I've heard depersonalization can occur with severe anxiety as well as depressive states. Can you recommend any relaxation scripts or episodes which might help with depersonalization?Answer:You're right that depersonalization is often caused by anxiety and/or depression.
I will do a relaxation script for an upcoming podcast specifically on helping with depersonalization. Meanwhile, the following scripts might be helpful:
Generalized Anxiety Relaxation (written script)
Relaxation to Relieve Anxiety (written script)
Coping with Panic (written script)
