Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Fear is our body’s way of protecting us from perceived danger. It’s our first defense against bad decisions and precarious situations. But people with anxiety often feel fear in even normal, everyday activities. This can include the fear of public speaking, crowded spaces, and conflict with loved ones.

Fear is a normal part of everyday life. But if your fear prevents you from trying new things or makes you afraid to let loved ones out of your sight, it may be time to seek therapy for your anxiety. To begin, contact us at Thriveworks in Bend, OR. We’ll work together to help reduce your anxiety.

The Types of Anxiety

Although we often use the word anxiety when discussing long-lasting feelings of anxiousness, there are actually many different types of anxiety disorders. Some of the more common types and causes are listed below.

  • Panic disorders are characterized by sudden moments of severe distress, called panic attacks, which can cause physical symptoms such as chest pain, heavy breathing, and lightheadedness. Stress, illness, genetics, and other factors can contribute to panic disorders.
  • Separation anxiety disorder is characterized by the fear that separation from a loved one will have devastating consequences. It’s often experienced by children attending school for the first time or young adults moving away from home. The loss of a loved one can also cause separation anxiety.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is characterized by extreme fear caused by a traumatic event you’ve either witnessed or been a part of. Though it’s often associated with soldiers at war, anyone who has experienced a traumatic event can develop PTSD.
  • Phobias are the persistent fear of a particular object or situation and can include everything from a fear of heights to a fear of other people. Phobias typically develop when a person has had a negative experience with the thing they’re afraid of.

Dealing with our fears can be challenging but therapy can help alleviate your anxiety symptoms so that you can focus on the things and people that matter most to you.

Why Should I See Someone About My Anxiety?

When anxiety gets in the way of our dreams, normal growth processes, and our everyday life, it may be time to seek the help of a mental health professional.

Therapy can help alleviate your anxiety symptoms and provide order to your life. Your Thriveworks therapist, psychologist, or another provider will use a variety of tools to reduce your anxiety and help you make meaningful decisions based on your goals rather than on your fears.

To get to this step, your therapist may employ different therapeutic techniques such as:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy, which encourages you to reconsider the way you address problems and handle the unexpected.
  • Interpersonal therapy, which focuses on your interactions with others and can help you resolve relationship issues that may be contributing to your anxiety.
  • Exposure therapy, which exposes you to your fears in a safe, controlled environment so that your negative response to your fear or phobia decreases over time.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
