Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Anxiety can be a normal part of life. You may get nervous thinking about an important bill, meeting with your boss, or rehearsing your wedding vows. Life throws scary and challenging moments at everyone.

However, for some people, anxiety can become overwhelming. Living with anxiety disorder goes beyond occasional stress or nervousness. Here are some examples of what anxiety can look like in your life:

  • Susan is a retired EMT who constantly watches the news for disaster alerts and calls their loved ones multiple times a day to check on their safety. No matter how calm and uneventful retirement has been, negative thoughts won’t stop racing through their head.
  • Dana is a war refugee who struggles to leave the house. She experiences frequent panic attacks when a car backfires or someone sets off fireworks nearby. At night, she lies awake reliving traumatic events.
  • Frank is a high school student who gets nauseous or ill on exam days. No matter how much he studies or understands the topic at hand, he rarely finishes tests and sweats profusely when trying to answer essay questions.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental illnesses. It’s characterized by intense worry and fear and can erode your peace of mind. Experts theorize that the main contributors to anxiety are your environment, close relationships, and your past. Fortunately, counseling and therapy for anxiety have helped thousands lighten the grip it has on their life.

Is anxiety keeping you from doing the things you want to do? Speaking with a licensed counselor or therapist at Thriveworks Counseling in Greeley, CO, can help you manage the symptoms of anxiety. Call our office today to set up your first session.

Anxiety Disorders: Most Common Symptoms

Like any health concern, anxiety can show up in different ways. The major types of anxiety include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and separation anxiety disorder.

Anxiety symptoms can start in childhood or manifest later in life. Your experiences do not need to be severe to warrant professional care — anxiety therapy and counseling can help people living with mild to severe anxiety. Some of the most common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Excessive fear or worry
  • Nervousness
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Feelings of impending doom
  • Trouble focusing
  • Insomnia
  • Trembling
  • Restlessness
  • Panic attacks
  • Obsessive behavior
  • Racing thoughts

If one or more of the symptoms listed here are familiar, you might be struggling with an anxiety disorder. Meeting with a mental health professional can provide you with answers and address your most pressing concerns.

Anxiety Counseling: What’s Involved in Treatment?

Anxiety can feel overwhelming and isolating, but we want you to know that support is available. Trained psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, and other mental health professionals are equipped to identify, treat, and provide strategies that reduce anxiety and help people get back to their lives.

Counseling and therapy for anxiety can take several routes. They frequently involve a combination of traditional talk therapy and prescription medication, and a provider might deploy specific methods like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure therapy:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy: This form of talk therapy focuses on the way repetitive thought and behavior patterns contribute to anxiety. It aims to lessen anxiety by altering your reactions to stressful situations or stimuli.
  • Exposure therapy: As its name suggests, exposure therapy involves interacting with the things that you fear in a safe environment. While avoiding anxiety inducing situations might seem like the solution, being gradually desensitized to their effects can make you more confident and capable of controlling panic in the long run.

People with anxiety regularly find that their sessions give them the tools to manage anxiety before it overpowers them. Takeaways include practicing mindfulness, exercise plans, and coping strategies for panic attacks like focused breathing and reflective journaling.
