If you read Bhante's booklet on meditation you can get the answer. Whenever fear comes to the mind, be mindful of it as afraid... afraid...  afraid...  or worried... worried... worried... or thinking... thinking... thinking... until it goes away. If you cultivate this mindfulness as a habit, the anxiety will eventually dissipate and stop being a problem.
