Anxiety Therapy in Cumming, GA—Counselors, Therapists, and Psychologists

Imagine you’re watching a suspenseful television show. Take The Walking Dead, for example. There are plenty of scenes that provoke “jump scares,” of which can be rather frightening. You can feel the tension build: dramatic music plays, the action of the scene slows down, all setting the stage for the perfect “jump scare” opportunity. Sometimes, though, nothing actually ends up happening.

This feeling of anticipation is what many people experience when they have anxiety. The difference, though, is these very specific moments in The Walking Dead evoke these nervous feelings, but someone with anxiety might feel like this at any point in time. Anxiety is a normal response and feeling to stress; however, some experience anxiety at a much different level. It’s like living with a constant fear of falling victim to a “jump scare.” For these individuals, it feels like excessive worry or fear that hinders their quality of life.

The good news, though, is that those who struggle with anxiety, be it mild or severe, can work with a professional to manage or overcome it. If you are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and need help, consider working with an anxiety therapist at Thriveworks Cumming in Forsyth County. These professionals are experts at helping clients to manage their symptoms and understand potential causes of anxiety. If you’re ready to schedule an appointment, give us a call today at (770) 224-7008. Our counselors are here and ready to meet you rmental health needs.

The Physical and Mental Symptoms of Anxiety

Anxiety can cause physical symptoms like heart palpitations, quickened breath, dizziness, stomach discomfort, and nausea. Thoughts like “What if I pass out?” and “What will people say when they notice I’m reacting like this?” become their everyday self-talk. A cyclical effect occurs within the feelings, the symptoms, and thinking about the feelings and symptoms, often leaving the person feeling exhausted when the moment of anxiety eventually passes. Experiencing anxiety like this can often lead to avoidant behaviors and affect work, school, and personal relationships.

Risk Factors and Treatment for Anxiety

According to the American Psychiatric Association, nearly 30% of US adults experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives. Research shows that risk factors include both genetics and environmental stressors. Unfortunately, though, only 30% of those diagnosed will seek treatment. There is a high propensity for drug abuse and addictions among people with anxiety disorders, which may suggest that people attempt to self-medicate.

There are healthier and more effective options. It’s important to remember that anxiety disorders are treatable, especially with a combination of interventions, including medication and talk therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a common and effective approach in talk therapy to help with the negative thoughts that contribute to the feelings of anxiety. Anxiety disorders include Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Specific Phobias, and Social Anxiety Disorder.
