Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Finn can’t seem to keep his performance review out of his mind. He knows that he’s done a great job at work for the past six months, but somehow, Finn manages to get caught up in an endless loop of what-if scenarios. And with the minutes ticking down until he needs to head to the conference room, he knows that he’ll need to get it together if he wants to look professional in front of his manager. He wonders: What makes him so anxious during the moments that he needs to remain calm? 

Finn knows that the answer probably isn’t simple. And with so many years of dealing with the same stress and anxiety, he knows that ultimately, he’s going to need help getting past his anxiety. That’s why he’s planning on scheduling an anxiety therapy session after work; something to both address the issue and also provide him with assistance from a mental health professional. Though he knows it may take a few sessions to see a difference in his anxiety, Finn is hopeful that anxiety therapy might offer him relief from the anxiety he’s been dealing with. 

Anxiety is a familiar feeling to many of us; but when our occasional anxiousness transforms into a persistent issue, then it’s possible that mental health services might be able to better assist you. And with help from Thriveworks in Jonesboro, AR there’s no need to go it alone. Our counselors, therapists, and psychiatrists can all help to treat anxiety. So whether you’re looking for a new provider or it’s your first time seeking out services, call our office to get matched with a professional who cares.

Do I Have Clinical Anxiety? 

The only way to get an accurate diagnosis is from a mental health professional, like our team in Jonesboro, AR. Anxiety is something that can manifest differently for everyone, so symptoms may not always look exactly the same from person to person. However, clinical anxiety (or recurring anxiety) is often experienced as: 

  • Constantly feeling stressed 
  • Desire to avoid social encounters 
  • Reliving traumatic experiences in dreams or flashbacks
  • Racing thoughts, inability to focus on daily tasks 
  • Constant fatigue
  • Insomnia

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed above then it’s best to schedule a session with a mental health professional to see if you have clinical anxiety. In the meantime, it’s better not to self-diagnose—only those who are qualified, like the providers at Thriveworks in Jonesboro, AR can help diagnose mental health conditions. 

When you seek out our services you may choose to be matched with either a therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist. All of these providers can diagnose and help to treat anxiety, but they do so in different ways. Therapists and counselors primarily use talk therapy or behavioral therapy to achieve results, while psychiatrists can prescribe medication to alleviate their client’s symptoms of anxiety, making more serious forms of anxiety disorders easier to manage. 

Are There Different Kinds of Anxiety? Which Anxiety Disorder Do I Have? 

Though there are many types of anxiety disorders, some of the more common include: 

  • Social anxiety disorder: Social anxiety induces distress while engaging with other people. Everything from grocery runs to birthday parties can be cumbersome, fear-filled events.
  • Panic disorder: Panic disorder can cause panic attacks. These physical episodes might result in dizziness, chest pain, vertigo, and nausea. 
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): GAD causes anxiety in different scenarios, whether real or imagined. This disorder can be difficult to identify because it isn’t triggered by any single source of anxiety. 
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): This disorder often induces irrational thought loops, or impulses to perform random physical actions in repetition. 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): PTSD, can occur in anyone that has been through a psychologically or physically painful event. Those who suffer from it are often privy to flashbacks to traumatic events, nightmares, and antisocial behavior.
