Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Fort Lauderdale, FL 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 Fort Lauderdale 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?

It is human nature to worry: about waking up in time for work (even when we know we’ve set an alarm), keeping our loved ones happy, teaching our kids right from wrong, making enough money to pay the bills and have a little extra for spending… the list goes on. And while this list might look a little different for each person, one thing remains true: We all worry! This probably won’t change anytime soon. However, it is important to note that all worrying isn’t acceptable. If your worry has reached the point of causing you significant distress, it is unhealthy and needs to be addressed.

Anxiety is extreme or excessive worry. And it can cause serious harm if it isn’t dealt with properly. If you think that your worry is a little more serious than your occasional concerns, consider working with an anxiety therapist or psychologist. These professionals specialize in helping people to understand and manage their harmful symptoms. They can prove valuable to your life, whether you’re dealing with generalized anxiety or a more specific anxiety disorder.

“I have anxiety. And I’m treating my anxiety. I’m on medication for my anxiety. Why am I saying this? Because it’s a completely normal thing. More and more people should talk openly about it.” –Anushka Sharma

Different Types of Anxiety: 5 Common Disorders

Some of us experience anxiety on a normal daily basis. Others experience anxiety in specific situations. Here are the 5 main types of anxiety disorders:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder: This disorder is characterized by your everyday worry. Those with Generalized Anxiety might feel anxious even when there is no apparent cause or trigger.
  2. Social Anxiety Disorder: Social Anxiety Disorder is characterized by anxiety in social situations. Individuals with social anxiety might feel anxious in all social situations or specific cases such as when they’re meeting someone for the first time.
  3. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is characterized by anxiety rooted in trauma. Traumatic events include physical assault, emotional abuse, natural disaster, and more.
  4. Panic Disorder: Panic Disorder is characterized by intense fear accompanied by physical symptoms like shortness of breath and a racing heart. Many mistaken panic attacks for heart attacks.
  5. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts and repetitive behaviors that an individual can’t avoid.

I recently switched from "Doctors On Demand" to "Thriveworks." I am seeing both a psychiatrist and a talk therapist. Both have thus far been exceptional. My psychiatrist is thorough in evaluating how medications are effecting me and advising possible alternatives if we need to reconsider a course of action. I appreciate his holistic approach to my treatment, probing how diet and other lifestyle choices may impact my emotional well being. My talk therapist listens carefully to me, shares a central theme that emerges from our session and recommends exercises that help delve deeper into issues that impact my ability to cope and thrive. I amvery happy with their service. Thank you.

Pedro is an excellent clinician who's primary concern is his clients wellbeing. He goes above and beyond to provide the best clinical care for his patients, and creates an individualized treatment plan to help assist with their specific needs. The clinical world is far better off having someone like this practicing in the field.
