Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Stress, feeling anxious, and worry are feelings that many people experience at various times throughout their life. Minor feelings of stress or anxiety are typical and can even be helpful in certain situations. Do you have an interview for a new job coming up? The stress of nailing the interview should encourage you to come overly prepared for the meeting.

But what happens when stress and anxiety become too much and don’t go away? For people with anxiety disorders, their feelings of fear or worry are often not proportional to the situation. Symptoms may persist for the remainder of the day or weekend, long after the object or situation that triggered the anxiety is gone. If left untreated, anxiety symptoms often worsen and can begin to affect a person’s life.

Anxiety can make you feel like you’ve lost all control over your thoughts, emotions, or behaviors. You may go to extreme measures to avoid situations that worsen your anxiety. Or maybe you’re easily angered when that’s not typically how you’d react in the moment.

Do you feel like your anxiety has begun interfering with your life? Now may be the right time to consider speaking with a licensed therapist or counselor. When you’re ready to take the first step, the mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling in Flowood, MS are here for you. New clients can call our office or use our online portal to schedule their first therapy session today.

Do I Have an Anxiety Disorder? Common Symptoms of Anxiety

Individuals may experience anxiety differently. Anxiety symptoms that someone you know may be experiencing might vary significantly from your experience. Some people experience psychological symptoms, while others may have physical symptoms. Some people experience both mental and physical symptoms all at once.

Although there are many types of anxiety, there are common signs and symptoms. Below is a list of some of the most common symptoms:

  • Persistent or extreme feelings of stress, fear, or worry
  • Sense of impending panic, danger, or doom
  • Restlessness or agitation
  • Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Overthinking or difficulty concentrating
  • Racing thoughts
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Muscle tension
  • Trembling or sweating
  • Increased heart rate or heart palpitations
  • Trouble breathing
  • Panic attacks

Therapy for Anxiety: What Can I Expect From My Appointment?

Treating anxiety is possible when you have help from a therapist, psychologist, counselor, psychiatrist, or other mental health professional. Anxiety counseling can help you better understand the causes of your anxiety. It will also teach you coping skills that will help you manage troubling symptoms.

Therapy for anxiety is a personalized experience that is tailored to fit your specific needs. A licensed therapist or counselor will assess your mental health condition, personality, symptoms, and preferences to create a treatment plan designed specifically for you. Your treatment plan could include recommendations that help treat the specific problems you’re having. Your therapist or counselor could also suggest multiple types of therapy.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), psychodynamic therapy, and exposure therapy are common types of therapy used in treating anxiety. The duration of your therapy sessions may depend on the severity of your condition and your response to therapy. In some cases, anti-anxiety medication may be prescribed alongside your therapy sessions.
