Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Bowling Green, KY 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 Bowling Green 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?

Most people have something that makes them anxious. For you, maybe it’s waiting in line for what feels like forever, discomfort speaking in public, or maybe you just don’t like meeting new people. The point is, anxiety is uncomfortable, but we won’t deny it’s a part of life. It’s not something that goes away on its own—like most obstacles, facing it can often be the only true way to eliminate it. But when we’re faced with something that makes us anxious, it can be hard to trust that addressing the subject will actually fix it, and not just make things worse. 

That being said, anxiety can come and go, but paying attention to how deeply it affects you, and how often you are actually anxious are important factors. There’s no need to judge yourself if you do feel consistently or debilitatingly anxious. And there’s also no reason for you to accept that anxiety will always control you. For those who face persistent, recurring feelings of anxiety, seeking mental health services for their concerns can offer real relief. 

Thriveworks Counseling in Bowling Green, KY has therapists and psychologists on staff who specialize in treating anxiety. If you suspect that you are suffering from an anxiety disorder or would like to work with a professional to manage day-to-day anxiety, consider reaching out. We’ll set you up with a mental health professional who can help. 

What Is Anxiety Therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps everyday people manage their specific presentation of anxiety. Anxiety manifests itself in many cases as: 

  • Racing thoughts, irrational thought loops 
  • Fatigue, feelings of being emotionally drained 
  • Headaches, or upset stomach 
  • Intense situational fear (crowds, public speaking, past events) 
  • Over or undereating to cope with stress 
  • Short temper or mood swings  

If any of these symptoms sound familiar, then talking with a therapist or psychiatrist at Thriveworks could help you regain control of your thoughts and emotions. We’d like to help you stay present in your daily life, and make the most out of your personal experiences. To do so, Thriveworks in Bowling Green, KY has different types of mental health care professionals to assist you. 

Even though the symptoms of anxiety may feel similar to many, the ways that anxiety might be triggered can vary wildly from person to person. That’s because anxiety isn’t just one, but many different types, known as disorders. Some of our clients benefit from connecting with a therapist or counselor, while others find the medication offered by psychiatric care to be more beneficial. It’s completely fine if you aren’t sure which type of provider you need—our Bowling Green, KY office is here to help with that. 

There’s a large amount of anxiety disorders, but Thriveworks mental health professionals commonly help treat: 

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): GAD causes anxiety in multiple 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. 
  • 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. 
  • Post-traumatic stress syndrome (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.

By partnering with a therapist or psychiatrist, you’ll be getting professional insight and guidance from an expert who’s trained to treat and diagnose different types of anxiety disorders. Dealing with an anxiety disorder isn’t something that you need to go through alone—our mental health professionals can help support you.
