What is your go-to approach for anxiety therapy?

My go-to approach for treating anxiety is exploring sleep hygiene first. I find the best benefit in creating a consistent sleep routine beneficial because our bodies need rest to be able to effectively process what’s going on..

What tools do you teach in anxiety therapy?

I teach the following tools in anxiety therapy:

  • Relaxation techniques
  • Identifying and challenging negative thoughts
  • Identifying the source of negative intrusive thoughts

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in anxiety therapy?

I know a client is making meaningful progress in anxiety therapy when they are able to report using skills learned in session to cope with anxious moods.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement anxiety therapy?

Clients can supplement their time in anxiety therapy with addressing their anxious thought by journaling prior to going to bed and creating an optimal sleep condition.

What should someone do to prepare for starting anxiety therapy?

To prepare for your first anxiety therapy session, you can prepare to be open and honest with your therapist to help them better help you!

Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

So lucky to live at a time when therapy is more acceptable and encouraged rather than back in the day. I wish I would’ve reached out sooner. After a traumatic event, my life was spinning out of control. I now feel like I’m more equipped to manage the issues that arise.
