Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Jane and Tom were afraid that their 6-year-old daughter Ella had an anxiety disorder, but they didn’t know how to help her. At first they’d thought Ella was just shy because she didn’t like to meet new people. But on her first day of kindergarten, Ella refused to get out of the car outside school and began hyperventilating in the back seat when Jane said it was time to go to class. And when Ella seemed worried about something, she withdrew and began twirling her hair. Sometimes the hair-twirling episodes would last hours. Ella also experienced nightmares where she worried her family was going to get into a terrible accident. Jane and Tom were at their wit’s end and couldn’t stomach seeing their daughter in psychological distress for one more day. What should they do?

Jane and Tom should take Ella to see a licensed anxiety therapist at Thriveworks in Davenport, IA. The Thriveworks team contains top-rated specialists who can work with Ella to manage her symptoms of anxiety and help her find ways to cognitively overcome her anxious feelings. The therapists at Thriveworks in Davenport, IA can support clients of all ages as they work to achieve their goals. 

Why Should I Treat My Anxiety?

If your anxiety is starting to disrupt your life and interfere with your goals, then it’s probably time to see a licensed anxiety therapist or anxiety counselor at Thriveworks in Davenport, IA. But oftentimes anxiety can manifest in physical symptoms, making it harder to know when a mental health professional can help. The following physical symptoms may cause someone to visit their primary care physician instead of a counselor or psychiatrist at Thriveworks:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Major and mild depression
  • Irritability
  • Weight changes
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Gastrointestinal problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Hypertension
  • Compromised immune system
  • Difficulty concentrating or focusing
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Hypochondria

Some of these physical conditions, like IBS, can produce more anxiety because the person suffering worries about their stomach. And then the worries cause more gastrointestinal distress, which causes more anxiety, and so on and so forth, ad infinitum. In a case like that, the person probably needs to address the psychological as well as the physical aspects of the condition. 

What Are the Psychological Treatments for Anxiety?

There are a wide range of effective, evidence-based treatments for anxiety. It’s a highly treatable condition when managed by professional mental health providers like the licensed anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Davenport, IA. Our top-rated team may use any of the following treatments for anxiety disorder and panic disorder:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Biofeedback
  • Psychotherapy (talk therapy)
  • Art and music therapy 
  • Medication prescribed by a Thriveworks psychiatrist
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) 
  • Exposure therapy
  • Relaxation techniques like deep breathing
  • Lifestyle changes like regular exercise, following a routine, and dietary modifications

Natural “remedies” like meditation can be helpful tools in treating anxiety disorder, but people with underlying neurochemical imbalances shouldn’t put too much pressure on themselves to get better solely through lifestyle changes. A licensed mental health professional can walk people through all the treatment options. 

What Should I Do If I’m Having a Panic Attack?

If you’re prone to panic attacks, anxiety therapy at Thriveworks in Davenport, IA can guide you through solutions, both to prevent future attacks and to manage attacks in the moment. For example, anxiety counselors may advise that you focus on your breathing to signal to your body that everything is okay. This can help get you out of fight-or-flight mode. A therapist may also advise you to find a focus object. If a Thriveworks psychiatrist has diagnosed you with a panic disorder, you may have medication that can help you calm your anxious responses.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
