Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Arlington, TX can develop a treatment plan that will help you better manage your day-to-day anxiety or your anxiety disorder.

How does anxiety therapy work?

Anxiety therapy involves talking to a therapist about symptoms, potential causes, and more. Thriveworks Arlington therapists will then work with you to determine where your anxiety might stem from and teach you effective coping mechanisms.

How to deal with anxiety?

One of the best ways to deal with anxiety is to learn about your own anxiety: your symptoms, what triggers it, and what coping mechanisms have been effective in the past. When you learn what your anxiety is tied to, it can help you be mindful of what’s really happening as well as prevent and mitigate symptoms by processing and working through the issue in therapy. Other strategies that have been shown to help manage anxiety are meditation, challenging anxious thoughts, exercising, and journaling.

Symptoms of anxiety

Common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Sense of impending danger
  • Nervousness/restlessness
  • Trouble focusing
  • Excessive sweating
  • Shaking
  • Headaches
  • Stomach issues
  • Fatigue
  • Panic attacks
  • Increased heart rate

What is the best therapy for anxiety?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be incredibly effective in treating anxiety and anxiety disorders. Other effective techniques include exposure therapy, Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and EMDR therapy.

Is anxiety therapy conducted in person or online?

Anxiety therapy is conducted both in person and online, depending on the individual’s preferences and their therapist’s availability. We suggest choosing the option that best suits your needs.

How long does anxiety therapy last?

On average, people can tend to attend 15 to 20 session of anxiety therapy (five or more months). However, this number is heavily dependent on the type of anxiety that’s being treated and its severity, with many choosing to attend anxiety therapy for a longer period of time to ensure its effectiveness long-term.

Is therapy worth it for anxiety?

Yes, it is worth going to therapy for anxiety. If you are struggling with regular anxious thoughts and feelings that are affecting your day-to-day life or you suspect that you have an anxiety disorder, you should seek expert anxiety help.

Need more help deciding?

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns in the world. If we think about it, we can probably easily recall a time when we or a loved one has felt anxious about something.

Consider the following scenarios:

  • Erika is about to give her first presentation at her new company. She’s prepared the slides, reviewed the client’s portfolio, and practiced her talking points in the bathroom mirror for the last two weeks. When it’s finally time to present in front of the clients, she freezes. Her palms itch, her armpits sweat, and she is filled with an intense sense of dread. She’s given tons of presentations at other jobs. She has never felt like this before.
  • Dean has recently turned eight. A few weeks ago, his older sister told him a scary bedtime story. Since then, Dean has developed a bedtime routine: turn the lights off and on three times before racing to bed. He finds this so calming that he now flashes the lights three times whenever something scary happens. If he can’t find a light switch, he panics.

While anxiety is common, debilitating anxiety can have a negative impact on our daily lives. When anxiety becomes so overwhelming that we cannot perform simple tasks without feeling overwhelming dread, it becomes a concern. What separates anxiety disorders from the occasional anxiousness we may feel is the frequency and intensity of the symptoms.

Anxiety can negatively impact our self-worth and mental health as well as our relationships with the people around us. But, with the proper care and attention, anxiety can be managed and treated.

The mental healthcare professionals at Thriveworks in Arlington, TX, are trained to treat anxiety. We are committed to tackling anxiety symptoms head-on so that you can move forward in your day-to-day life.

Typical Anxiety Signs and Symptoms

Anxiety can make completing routine tasks difficult. To add to this, anxiety is often accompanied by depression and other mental health disorders.

Learning to spot the telltale signs of anxiety is the first step in learning to cope with or reduce anxiety. While there are many different types of anxiety, the symptoms of anxiety often overlap.

Common symptoms can include:

  • Stomach and chest pains
  • Heart palpitations
  • Agitation
  • Panic attacks
  • Excessive worry
  • Nausea
  • Changes in appetite or weight
  • Feelings of detachment
  • Numbness

Seeking therapy for anxiety can help you put a name to the emotions you’re feeling. Because anxiety is so varied, your therapist will be able to help you pinpoint the type of anxiety you’re experiencing, whether that’s general anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder, or another type of anxiety.

If you have experienced any of the above symptoms, consider contacting a specialist at Thriveworks in Arlington, TX. We have years of experience treating anxiety, and our goal is to help you get the mental support you need to live a fulfilled life.

Getting Help: What To Expect From Anxiety Therapy

Whether you’re a person getting ready for their next big presentation or a child searching for a good night’s sleep, anxiety does not have to consume you. There are treatment options available that can help you regain control of your world.

These treatments begin by talking with a therapist or counselor. A professional will be able to offer anxiety counseling services that help you learn to cope with your anxiety as you navigate your daily life.

For people with anxiety, a professional counselor or therapist may offer various forms of treatment. This could include a type of talk therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). A licensed professional may teach you how to spot and combat compulsive triggers and how to use self-care techniques such as creating an exercise plan, sticking to a sleeping schedule, or adjusting your diet to manage your anxiety.

Your anxiety therapist or counselor can help equip you with the coping mechanisms and relaxation techniques you need to alleviate your anxiety symptoms. Our mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Arlington, TX are determined to help you progress toward your goals.
