Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in College Station, TX 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 College Station 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.

Do I Have Anxiety? Do I Need to Connect With a Thriveworks Therapist? 

Before you start to diagnose yourself with anxiety, keep in mind that the only people qualified to do that are licensed mental health professionals—like our team in College Station, TX. They can help determine what your mental issues are, and partner with you to create a personalized treatment plan. Still, even if you haven’t seen a provider yet, it is important to be able to recognize common signs or symptoms of anxiety if you’re feeling them. These include, but aren’t limited to: 

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

Don’t be concerned if something that’s troubling you isn’t listed above; these are just a few of the many different issues that might manifest when someone develops anxiety. Another common source of concern for those seeking mental health services is that they might feel reservations about opening up to a professional about their personal lives, thoughts, and worries. It makes sense to feel nervous about talking with someone about these issues for the first time. However, the mental health professionals at Thriveworks in College Station, TX are here to help, not judge; they’ll use your feedback to help you manage and mitigate the symptoms of your anxiety. 

The Different Types of Anxiety

Though it might surprise some people, anxiety isn’t just one condition, but many. Anxiety is often used in psychology and psychiatry to refer to an umbrella of closely related disorders. Some of the most common that our providers help people with 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 who 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.

There are many different types of anxiety, and this disorder manifests differently for everyone, including among those with the same diagnosis.
