Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Attleboro, MA 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 Attleboro 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?

The hard-hitting truth is that sometimes we make life harder on ourselves. One primary example is our tendency to worry—to think of worst-case scenarios. We then play these scenarios out in our heads over and over again. We worry about getting fired (for absolutely no   good reason); we worry about our significant others leaving us (again, for absolutely no good reason). And we even convince ourselves that this is or will become our reality. As a result, our minds and our bodies respond to these worst case scenarios as if they are our reality. Our heart rate speeds up, our palms start to sweat, and our mind begins racing uncontrollably.

“Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.” –Charles Spurgeon

Everything we’re talking about can be summed up in one word: anxiety. This one, little word represents a major problem in today’s society. Many of us suffer from anxiety, or uncontrollable worry, on a day to day basis. We worry about the aforementioned events, but we also worry about more mundane as well as more serious occurrences. This anxiety can have a major impact on life as we know it: it can harm our work, our relationships, and our overall functioning.

Fortunately, anxiety is highly treatable. If you’ve recognized that you have an anxiety problem, it’s important that you reach out for help. An anxiety therapist at Thriveworks Counseling in Attleboro, MA can provide you with this help. Our team of skilled, caring anxiety specialists have the tools, the training, and the experience to help you better understand and manage your anxiety. To get to work with one of these professionals, just give our office a call. A scheduling specialist will be happy to get you booked for your first session.

Do I Have Anxiety? What Are the Symptoms?

Yes, it is normal to worry… on occasion. When you start worrying more often than not, however, it becomes a problem. Again, anxiety is excessive, uncontrollable worry. It is accompanied by harmful mental and physical symptoms that can further hinder your life. These symptoms can vary in presentation and severity on a case by case basis. However, there are common symptoms. “The major signs and symptoms of anxiety include: excessive worry, stress that is out of proportion to a specific event or situation, fear, racing heart, irritability, racing thoughts, feeling of impending doom, nausea, sweating, difficulty sleeping and lack of concentration,” explains Paige Hartmann, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor at our Attleboro office.

If you’re worrying excessively and presenting any combination of the above, it’s important that you speak with a professional who can help you manage your anxiety. Fortunately, there are many techniques that can help you learn to put your thoughts into perspective, cut back on the worrying, and ultimately live a better, less-stressed life. Your anxiety therapist at Thriveworks in Attleboro will do their best to help you find success in treatment.

What Kind of Anxiety Do I Have?

In addition to anxiety about random, day to day incidents, there are additional anxiety disorders that revolve around a central theme. Here are a couple of common anxiety disorders:

  1. Social Anxiety Disorder: Social anxiety occurs in (you guessed it) social situations. One might experience social anxiety almost every time they interact with others or in more specific social situations such as when they are the center of attention or forced to speak publicly.
  2. PostTraumatic Stress Disorder: PTSD is characterized by anxiety that relates back to the individual’s trauma. The individual will experience symptoms characteristic of anxiety when they encounter sounds, noises, sights, even smells that remind them of the traumatic event.

There are other anxiety disorders too: obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and specific phobias. In any case, an anxiety therapist or psychologist at Thriveworks Attleboro can step in and make a difference. “Therapy can help an individual manage their anxiety by first identifying possible triggers/warning signs that can cause anxiety.  Once triggers/warning signs are identified, the therapist and individual will work together to establish positive coping skills to help manage and reduce anxiety,” Hartmann explains.
