Are You Considering Anxiety Counseling? It Really Can Help – Therapists in Buffalo

Many people with anxiety believe that it’s something they must simply live with. They’re afraid to seek counseling, they distrust it, or they don’t think it will work for them. If you’re in this position, simply ask yourself these questions: Are you sick of living with anxiety? Are you sick of having panic attacks? Are you tired of planning your whole life around avoiding things that may trigger your anxiety? If so, then it’s time for something different: Buffalo anxiety therapy.

Different people suffer from different types of anxiety

The term “anxiety” can be used relatively loosely but it actually refers to several different types of disorders. The most common ones are social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Your counselor will thoroughly assess you to give you a specific diagnosis.

You deserve answers and Buffalo anxiety therapy can help

There isn’t a cookie cutter answer to treating anxiety. Some clients have had great luck with medications but it’s always important to keep in mind that these medications treat only the symptoms – not the anxiety itself. When you work with a counselor, you can find the root cause of your anxiety and do something about it.

Some clients have had a specific trauma that led up to their anxiety. This is generally caused by the brain essentially getting stuck in a state where it is constantly assessing the world around for threats. Unfortunately, it can begin to see threats where there are no real threats. Counseling can give you ways to handle these issues.

There’s a unique path for you to take

When you’re working on anxiety, there isn’t a specific treatment plan that works for everyone. At Thriveworks Buffalo Counseling & Coaching it’s important to us to treat you – not just your disorder. Some ideas that may be a part of your treatment plan include teaching you how to take care of yourself emotionally, helping you eliminate substances that can increase anxiety (like caffeine and alcohol), family counseling, and one-on-one counseling.

rriage so differently ultimately helped us both see that we are not the right people for one another. We have unfortunately decided that divorce was the right path forward for us as individuals but counseling made it a healthy, productive journey instead of letting things just fall apart at home. She is now my personal therapist helping me deal with the loss of my marriage. I don’t just appreciate our sessions, but I look forward to them. I take notes and I learn a lot about myself and my growth every time we meet.

f a waitlist they had, expecting there to be a waitlist. ThriveWorks got my son in within 24 hours! Incredible! My son found a great therapist at ThriveWorks, Mr.Stephen Obrien. This guy has a unique approach and it works for my son. My son actually WANTS to go to therapy. He's getting more out of his sessions than either of us could have hoped for. We found this place at the right time and we couldn't be happier.
