About me

  • Asthma may be associated with heightened levels of anxiety and distress, with the risk of anxiety being twice as high in individuals with asthma compared to those without the condition. Simultaneously experiencing anxiety and asthma can exacerbate the symptoms of asthma and amplify the sense of unease, as it can be challenging to distinguish between the manifestations of asthma and those of anxiety. In the course of my research, I am investigating whether psychological treatment, specifically Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), can effectively mitigate anxiety in individuals with asthma.

    At present, a randomized controlled trial is underway to examine the efficacy of internet-delivered CBT for adults dealing with both asthma and anxiety. For more information, please refer to:

    To adapt this treatment for children, a qualitative study is being conducted, involving interviews with children, adolescents, and their parents regarding their experiences with asthma and any potential anxiety associated with their child's asthma. For additional details, please visit:
