Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Dacula, GA 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 Dacula 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.

  • 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?

The psychologist Steven Hayes once stated, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” When they’re very young, humans develop strategies to cope with uncomfortable feelings. Sometimes those coping strategies work in the long-term and sometimes they don’t. Therapy is a way to investigate our existing ways of dealing with problems and asking the question, “Is this still working for me?”

When someone has anxiety, it can infect the entire world around them, making everything seem dangerous or unstable. As the writer Arthur Somers Roche once stated, “Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.” Anxiety can put someone in fight-or-flight mode around the clock, placing unnecessary stress on the mind and body. Anxiety can also lead to other mental health conditions, like depression or alcohol use disorder (AUD). Fortunately, anxiety is highly treatable with the right care team.

The licensed anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Dacula, GA have the training and experience to help people overcome their anxiety. Using compassion, knowledge, and psychological insights, the mental health care team at Thriveworks can help lead clients toward the path of recovery.

  • Childhood anxiety disorders

  • Agoraphobia

What Are Some Common Effects of Anxiety?

The effects of anxiety can vary from person to person. Sometimes one’s extreme worries and fears about socializing will prevent someone from leaving the house, leading to isolation and depression (anxiety and depression often go hand in hand). Symptoms of anxiety might be physical, like when someone gets nauseated or develops an upset stomach when they’re feeling anxious. Qualified mental health providers like the anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Dacula, GA look for all these symptoms and more. Untreated anxiety can lead to lasting health problems like a compromised immune system.
