Anxiety Therapy in Athens, GA

After working from home for several months, Alec’s social anxiety increased. Prior to being isolated, he was able to start conversations with his co-workers no problem and didn’t mind talking on the phone. 

Now, just the thought of picking up the phone and calling a customer makes him nervous, increases his heart rate, and causes shortness of breath. It’s prohibiting him from being able to perform well at his job which causes him even more stress.

Different Types of Anxiety: What to Look For

There are different types of anxiety that someone might experience. In Alec’s case, he struggles with a social anxiety disorder. Here’s a little more information on social anxiety disorder and other common types of anxiety:

    1. Social anxiety disorder: As we touched on previously, social anxiety is a form of anxiety brought on by social situations. You might feel anxious around new people, presenting in front of your co-workers, making phone calls, or engaging in other social interactions. 
    2. Generalized anxiety disorder: This is the most common form of anxiety. It is characterized by uncontrollable worry, racing thoughts, shortness of breath, fatigue, insomnia or hypersomnia, changes in eating habits, and more. 
    3. Post-traumatic stress disorder: Post-traumatic stress disorder, otherwise known as PTSD, is brought on by a traumatic experience. Traumatic events might include sexual assault, mental abuse, deployment to a warzone, natural disasters, or car accidents. 

Are you experiencing symptoms of any of the above anxiety disorders? The anxiety therapists at our Thriveworks office in Athens will help you manage and cope with these symptoms. They can also help you understand why you might have developed your anxiety disorder.
