Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in El Dorado Hills, CA 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 El Dorado Hills 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?

Your palms start to sweat as your pulse races and your breathing quickens. You’re worried, very worried, almost afraid… but you don’t know why. It’s Tuesday morning, you’re on the way to work (on time, as always) for what is sure to be an easy and well-planned day. What are you so stressed about? And why does this keep happening?

Stress and anxiety are normal emotions for most people, and can actually help us perform better under pressure and complete daily tasks. But for people with anxiety disorders, feelings of extreme worry or fear appear without reason and last for an unreasonable amount of time. Sometimes those feelings can escalate into physical symptoms and, in extreme cases, a panic attack.

If you have ever experienced unexplained or extreme anxiety, you may benefit from anxiety counseling at Thriveworks in El Dorado Hills, CA. Working with a counselor or licensed therapist can help you understand your anxiety and manage the symptoms so you can lead a healthy, happier life.

Different Causes and Types of Anxiety

Anxiety can take many forms and may look different from one person to the next. You may experience racing thoughts and hyperventilation while your co-worker with anxiety has severe GI upset and difficulty sleeping. The various and plentiful manifestations of anxiety disorders are what make them so tricky to tackle alone.

Anxiety disorders can take root due to a few contributing factors. You can develop anxiety as a result of traumatic events, persistently stressful situations, or medical conditions. Anxiety disorders can also be inherited, so you may have mom or pop to thank for those sweaty palms.

In addition to the countless symptoms anxiety brings to the table, there are also many different types of anxiety. Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is one of the most common, where you might feel excessive or persistent worry about everyday events, and feel this anxiety on more days than you don’t. GAD often exists in combination with other anxiety disorders or mental health issues.

Other common forms of anxiety include:

  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Specific phobias
  • Separation anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Regardless of the source or type of your anxiety disorder, anxiety counseling with Thriveworks in El Dorado Hills, CA can help reduce your symptoms so you can live a life with less worry.

Getting Help: What To Know About Anxiety Therapy

Your anxiety disorder doesn’t have to define or control you. Therapy for anxiety can help you take control and kick your anxiety symptoms to the curb.

Anxiety counseling begins by connecting with a licensed therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist to examine your anxiety and its potential causes in a deep, more meaningful way. Your licensed professional will outline a treatment plan for you, which could include various forms of therapy, lifestyle adjustments, and medications if needed.

Therapy gives you the tools you need to manage anxiety on your own so you can fight off those feelings next time they come creeping in. There are several types of therapy that can be helpful in managing anxiety symptoms and working your way through them. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and exposure therapy are some common therapeutic approaches that your counselor may recommend.

It’s important to remember that anxiety disorders and symptoms can vary greatly and that your treatment plan will be specifically tailored to your diagnosis and experiences. The timeline for your anxiety therapy and how often you’ll meet with your therapist will depend on your specific situation. Anxiety therapy can be conducted in-person or online, and even in a family or couples setting.

The therapists at Thriveworks in El Dorado Hills, CA specialize in treating anxiety disorders. We can help you reduce anxiety symptoms and worry less so you can focus on what is truly important to you.
