From the interviews I grouped responses into five distinct categories and
1. Understanding of therapy
2. Experience of anxiety
3. Kinds of anxious thoughts
4. Physical symptoms of anxiety
5. Things that improve their mood

Some examples are

“Feelings of accomplishment or self improvement reduces anxiety”
