Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

George has five siblings. Growing up, he felt like there was always someone around that he could go to for advice, assistance, or a hug. Whenever he had tough exams, whenever he was nervous about his first crush, or whenever he was worried about a work issue, he turned to his family for support.

Until he was 30, George’s engineering job kept him close to his hometown and he spent most of his weekends at his parents’ house for family gatherings. But a recent promotion relocated him hundreds of miles away from his family. This caused him to start worrying about his family all of the time, so much so that he couldn’t seem to control or distract himself from these thoughts.

A colleague noticed he kept glancing at his phone during meetings. She asked what was bothering him and he explained the situation. She said she had a similar experience happen when she moved out of her family home for college, then mentioned how powerful therapy was in helping her manage her anxiety.

On her advice, George reached out to a licensed therapist. Through regular appointments, he learned that he had separation anxiety disorder and his therapist helped him discover coping skills that helped him with feeling anxious.

Anxiety can manifest in many different ways. It might be present from a young age or develop later in life, as it did in George’s case. With the help of a mental health professional, you too could get the support you need in overcoming your anxiety disorder. If you’re ready to learn about therapy for your anxiety, call our office at Thriveworks in Fremont, CA to schedule your first appointment today.

Common Symptoms of Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety primarily targets the mind, but it can reveal itself through physical indications as well. Persistent emotional distress or extreme reactions to stress might be signs of an anxiety disorder.

Have you experienced any of the following anxiety symptoms?

  • Excessive worry or fear
  • Feeling of impending doom
  • Trembling
  • Heart palpitations
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Hypervigilance
  • Lack of concentration
  • Inability to relax
  • Intrusive thoughts

If so, it may be time to seek the assistance of a licensed counselor. Sometimes we write these feelings off as one-time occurrences when they’re really part of a larger pattern. Occasional fear, worry, and distress are typical parts of life, but you don’t have to endure frequent and disruptive emotional upheaval.

Attending Therapy: What To Expect From Anxiety Treatment

Working with a therapist or counselor at Thriveworks Counseling can help demystify your anxiety symptoms. We will help provide you with treatment options to decrease the influence of anxiety over your life.

When someone begins anxiety counseling, a therapist will ask them to describe what they are going through. This might entail speaking about your living standards, upbringing, consequential memories, relationships, and personal habits.

From there, your provider may use a different types of therapy techniques, such as:

  • Psychotherapy: Also called talk therapy, psychotherapy creates a judgement-free space where you learn about your condition and evaluate your emotional state with the help of a therapist.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): This method focuses on thought and behavior patterns that cause or worsen anxiety. By intentionally unlearning certain these practices, CBT may help reduce your anxiety.
  • Evidence-based coping strategies: If you experience objects or situations that trigger panic attacks, a counselor might propose the use of breathing exercises, journaling, or other mindfulness skills to overcome stressful situations.
  • Suggested lifestyle changes: Mental illnesses can be exacerbated by unhealthy routines. Your provider may recommend alterations to your sleeping habits, food and water intake, or physical activity level.

Treating anxiety usually requires a multifaceted approach, which will look different for everyone. For instance, some people with anxiety may benefit from pairing talk therapy sessions with medication prescribed by a board-certified psychiatrist. Others might need to take on less responsibility at work or reassess their closest relationships.

Finding the right combination may take some trial and error, so it’s important to be honest and open with your Thriveworks’ therapist. The path to mental wellbeing for most clients becomes clearer as therapy progresses.

My therapist is great! She's professional, personable, and on time. She goes the extra mile to be helpful. I don't like the Zoom format; I prefer in person sessions but she does her best to make it feel like we are in the same room. Very happy.
