Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Feeling anxious or nervous from time to time is normal. A small dose of anxiety can even be a good thing, helping you to use good judgment when you might be contemplating something reckless. It can motivate you to get your work done when you want to procrastinate. It can push you to prepare and do your best when it’s time for an important speech or a big test.

But what happens when you are trapped in worrisome thoughts all the time? When you can’t get a break from the rumination and catastrophizing? When you feel stuck and the feelings of anxiety don’t go away?

If anxiety is overwhelming you or interfering with your life, you could be dealing with generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, or another form of mental illness. Countless people across the nation deal with anxiety symptoms every single year, from celebrities and politicians to children and parents.

Actress Anne Hathaway knows what it’s like to struggle with anxiety. She’s opened up about particularly painful periods of her life and how important it has been to express her emotions and work through those distressing feelings. It has given her an opportunity to slow down her thoughts and get comfortable talking about feeling anxious and feeling scared.

When feelings of anxiety become too much to handle on your own, there is no shame in reaching out for help. Contact us today to start your recovery by speaking to a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Cheyenne, WY.

What Anxiety Symptoms Are Most Common?

When it comes to our mental health, we don’t come with an instruction manual. You can’t turn to page 50 to self-diagnose exactly what is going on in your mind. But as part of a comprehensive diagnostic process, mental health professionals do look for certain key symptoms and struggles to determine whether an anxiety disorder may be present.

Some of the telltale signs of anxiety include:

  • Feeling on-edge or jittery
  • Heart palpitations
  • Panic attacks
  • Excessive sweating
  • Feeling irritable
  • Worrying consistently
  • Dwelling on thoughts of dread
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Exhaustion or fatigue
  • Digestive problems
  • Addictive behaviors

If you’re ready to break the uncomfortable cycle of anxiety, consider reaching out to the licensed mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Cheyenne, WY.

How Can Anxiety Therapy Help Me?

Maybe you’ve tried dealing with anxiety on your own. You might have attempted some deep breathing or relaxation techniques. Perhaps you’ve tried yoga or other athletic pursuits to shed some of that anxious energy.

Chances are these strategies help a little but you’re still largely struggling with the same issues.

If that’s true, it’s not too late to reach out for professional help. Anxiety therapy involves a number of treatment options — e.g., talk therapy, medication, coping skills, and self-care recommendations — to help clients alleviate their symptoms and conquer their anxiety.

Some of the most common types of therapy used to treat people with anxiety include:

  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Exposure therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Interpersonal therapy

The type of treatment you’ll receive will depend on the type of anxiety you have, your symptoms, as well as your particular symptoms and goals. For example, someone experiencing social anxiety or struggling with a specific phobia may benefit from exposure therapy while someone with generalized anxiety disorder might benefit more from CBT or DBT. Your mental health provider will determine the right treatment plan for your situation.

Ready to reduce your anxiety and steer your life in a healthier direction? Talking with an expert at Thriveworks in Cheyenne, WY can help.
