Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Vanessa has always been an anxious person, but coming to terms with that hasn’t been easy. She’s embarrassed about how much she overthinks everything, and as she’s gotten older, it’s become an invasive form of self-manipulation. Everything from dating and college classes to job interviews has been a real challenge for her. And stomaching the frustration that she feels isn’t working anymore.
But instead of avoiding the subject, Vanessa feels ready to take action at this point. She’s done some personal research, and feels like talking to a mental health professional about her anxiety could offer some relief and ways to cope. Even though she’s never been to therapy or counseling, Vanessa hopes that connecting with someone makes a difference. 

Like Vanessa, you may be hoping to gain valuable insight into what’s causing your anxiety.

We all experience anxiety every now and then; but for some people, anxious thoughts become a persistent problem that disrupts their day-to-day life. Even though anxiety can manifest itself differently for everyone, some common indications that you’re suffering from anxiety include: 

  • Constantly feeling stressed 
  • Desire to avoid social encounters 
  • Racing thoughts, inability to focus on daily tasks 
  • Constant fatigue
  • Insomnia

Are There Different Forms of Anxiety?

Many people are unaware that “anxiety” in the psychological sense actually refers to several different types of mental health disorders that are all closely related. There are many forms of anxiety, but some of the most common that our providers help to treat 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.
