Anxiety Counselors, Therapists in Bensalem, PA—Bucks Counseling and Therapy

It’s safe to say that many of us know what it’s like to feel anxious or excessively worried. Say, about a meeting with your boss or a tough conversation you have to have with your spouse. Let’s take a closer look:

  • You’re told by a fellow coworker that your boss wants to meet with you in an hour. They don’t offer any further details, which sends you into a nervous and anxious mess.
  • You just found out that you have type II diabetes. You were pre-diabetic, so you knew that it was a possibility, but it still hits you in the gut. You feel super anxious about telling your parents the news.
  • You constantly feel on edge when you venture out in public. Long lines, crowded areas, loud chatter—it all sends you into a delirious state of anxiety.

Do these examples hit a little too close to home? Do you feel anxiety at work, in your relationships, in social situations, or elsewhere? This might make you feel nervous or unsure about your future. The good news, though, is that an anxiety counselor or psychologist at Thriveworks Bensalem in Bucks County can help you to manage your anxiety, regardless of when you experience it or what triggers it.

The anxiety counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Bensalem are skilled, caring, and experienced providers who offer personalized care to every single client they see. They will help you find hope and healing, despite how distant that might feel right now. Call Thriveworks Bensalem today to schedule an appointment or hear more about our services.

How Do I Know if I Have Anxiety? Signs, Symptoms

Some feel anxious on a day to day basis. Others are triggered by specific circumstances, such as social situations. Still, determining whether you actually have anxiety can be difficult. Some people convince themselves that it couldn’t be anxiety—it’s just mere nerves or something else. But oftentimes, it is anxiety that needs or could benefit from treatment. Here are some common signs and symptoms:

  • Excessive, uncontrollable thoughts
  • Irritability
  • Trouble focusing
  • Racing thoughts
  • Sweaty palms
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Trembling

These symptoms can prove difficult and affect important areas of your life. If you are experiencing any combination of the above, you should consider talking to a professional so you can get the treatment that you need. An anxiety counselor or psychologist at Thriveworks Bensalem can help you to explore these symptoms, potential causes and triggers of your anxiety, as well as the best remedies. Additionally, they can discuss different anxiety disorders with you, such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, and others.

How Does Anxiety Counseling Help?

The anxiety counselors at Thriveworks Bensalem will take a look at your specific case of anxiety and then offer individualized treatment. Together, you will work to develop and understand the best plan for managing your anxiety. The process often involves talking about and changing negative thinking patterns (a bad habit many of us are guilty of).

To help you better understand how anxiety counseling works, a counselor might analyze your negative thinking habits and assess its snowball effects. For example, if you call yourself a loser every time you make a simple mistake, this could lead to anxiety about trying new things. Your counselor will help you understand this role of negative thinking, and perhaps more importantly, how you can change this habit.

Over 35 years ive known frank

★★★★★
First met frank in the mid 80's as he came to Phoenix Arizona as a certified surgical technologist & worked with him there in a level 1 trauma center. It wasn't much after his stay in Phoenix he returned to Philadelphia where he then became Philadelphia fire fighter, and his effort of doing that excelled to peaking position as Captain for the PFD. As a friend of Frank through all his dedication and motivation to higher education , that his commitment & dedication hadn't already been in progress . But as a friend to see what he has done and become to his educate himself to helping people in the community is second to none. But more than anything he's a great person and to have him as my friend all these years seen what he's done to keep helping people in the private sector, bravo frank !

Talk Therapy that helps

★★★★★
I found Frank during a tough time in my life. I was dealing with some pretty heavy issues related to family and career and suffering from depression and severe anxiety. Frank listened and had a way of making me see things in a different (more positive) light. It's clear he cares deeply about others and genuinely wants to lessen their suffering. I highly recommend Frank as a counselor. His empathy and skills made him more than qualified to assist in my journey to wellness. Frank: thank you for all that you do. You have made my life less dark, and for that I am grateful.

Frank Yaeger

★★★★★
I first worked with Frank as a client. He was my personal trainer. He not only expanded my understanding and knowledge of physical health, but also gave me the confidence I need to far exceed my initial goals. As the role of a licensed professional counselor (LPC) I had invited Frank to be part of a three-person panel which included two Ph. D’s speaking on the topic of estrangement. The event went extremely well, and Frank’s contributions were very insightful, informative, and offered tangible methods to address estranged love ones. I highly recommend Frank as a therapist. He will provide unwavering empathy, ‘meet you where you are’ and provide the necessary interventions and compassion to have breakthroughs along your therapeutic journey

Frank is always striving to be a better version of himself. He has a level of passion for life and learning that I've rarely seen in others. He works on a holistic approach to life from every angle; whether for himself or with suggestions to others.
