Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Oprah Winfrey. Stephen Colbert. Kourtney Kardashian. Adele.

What do all these people have in common? You might say that they’re all celebrities, and you’d be right, but they have also struggled with anxiety at various points throughout their lives.

Oprah reported feeling numbness from anxiety that almost caused her to have a nervous breakdown. Stephen has experienced mild to severe panic attacks since his late 20s. Kourtney’s anxiety is accompanied by overwhelming feelings of nausea. Adele’s anxiety symptoms have gotten so bad she’s had to leave her own concerts before.

If one thing is for certain, it’s that suffering from anxiety is common. However, signs and symptoms of anxiety can vary drastically from one person to the next. Sometimes, the only commonality between people who have anxiety is that it can become so bad that it interferes with their day-to-day lives.

Have you experienced symptoms of anxiety? Are you not sure what your next step should be? If you want to take control of your mental health journey, consider seeing a Thriveworks Counseling licensed therapist in Dayton, OH. Our mental health professionals create a judgment-free zone for every client so they can feel comfortable sharing their issues and accessing the tools to move forward.

What Are the Most Common Anxiety Symptoms?

As previously mentioned, anxiety comes in all different shapes and sizes. Just because anxiety materializes in a certain way for one person doesn’t mean that’s the only tell-tale sign of an anxiety disorder. You don’t have to compare yourself to others who struggle with anxiety to know whether or not you could use some help.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of anxiety:

  • Restlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Sweating
  • Excessive worry
  • Insomnia
  • Heart palpitations
  • Trembling
  • Panic attacks
  • Substance abuse

If anxiety is interfering with your life, one of our therapists can help to point you in the right direction.

What Kinds of Anxiety Disorders Are There?

The thought of seeking counseling services to treat your anxiety symptoms can feel overwhelming and intimidating, and we understand that. That’s why we want to be transparent about what you can expect from your therapy sessions with one of our Dayton mental health professionals.

First, it’s important to understand that there are different types of anxiety disorders. Here are just a few of the most common:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Panic disorder
  • Social phobia (or social anxiety disorder)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

This list is not exhaustive but it helps to show the range of anxiety disorders our licensed therapists have experience diagnosing and treating. For example, clients who experience phobias may benefit from exposure therapy while others may benefit more from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
