Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Can you remember the last time you were anxious, and what it was that set off that emotion? For many of us, anxiety is a regular fact of life. Whether we’re facing it in traffic on the way to work, struggling to pay our bills, or simply worrying about imaginary scenarios, anxiety can be really time-consuming. 

While feelings of anxiousness are manageable when they arise infrequently, dealing with persistent anxiety is an entirely different story. When these negative thoughts start to root themselves into our daily lives, the relationships and connections that we hold dear can start to suffer. But thankfully, partnering with a mental health professional can be a rewarding way to find new balance and relief from anxiety. 

At Thriveworks in Billings, MT we represent just a portion of our nationwide team of mental health professionals, but you’ll find the same quality of care at any of our other nationwide locations. If you’re suffering from anxiety, racing thoughts, or other signs of mental illness, we encourage you to reach out to our office. Our providers are ready to help. 

How Can Therapy or Psychiatric Care Help My Anxiety? 

When it comes to mental health care, everyone’s needs are different. There’s no universal solution to mental illness, even among those with the same condition. With that being said, anxiety is an emotional disorder that can commonly manifest as:

  • Constantly feeling stressed 
  • Desire to avoid social encounters 
  • Reliving traumatic experiences in dreams or flashbacks
  • Racing thoughts, inability to focus on daily tasks 
  • Constant fatigue
  • Insomnia

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, it’s best to schedule a session with a mental health professional to see if what you’re dealing with is anxiety. And before you do, it’s better not to self-diagnose—only those who are qualified, like the providers at Thriveworks in Billings, MT can help you do that. 

Those who see our mental health professionals will often be matched with two different provider types: either a therapist or someone from our psychiatric team. Both types of providers can diagnose and help to treat anxiety but they do so in different ways. While therapists primarily use talk therapy or behavioral therapy to achieve results, psychiatrists are also medical doctors in addition to being licensed providers. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication to alleviate their client’s symptoms of anxiety, making the disorder easier to manage. 

Are There Different Kinds of Anxiety? Which Anxiety Disorder Do I Have? 

You might be unaware that “anxiety” is actually a broad term that refers to a cluster of related emotional disorders. Though there are many types of anxiety disorders, some of the more common include: 

  • Social anxiety disorder: Social anxiety induces distress while engaging with other people. Everything from grocery runs to birthday parties can be cumbersome, fear-filled events.
  • Panic disorder: Panic disorder can cause panic attacks. These physical episodes might result in dizziness, chest pain, vertigo, and nausea. 
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): GAD causes anxiety in different scenarios, whether real or imagined. This disorder can be difficult to identify because it isn’t triggered by any single source of anxiety. 
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): This disorder often induces irrational thought loops, or impulses to perform random physical actions in repetition. 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): PTSD, can occur in anyone that has been through a psychologically or physically painful event. Those who suffer from it are often privy to flashbacks to traumatic events, nightmares, and antisocial behavior.
