Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

The human body is equipped with an amazing natural response system to threats and emergencies. That response is called anxiety, and it helps alert us to danger in our surroundings so we can take immediate action.

However, anxiety can also be a problem when the feeling is heightened for too long and interferes with daily life. For example, many people feel anxiety about the stressors of everyday life, such as financial problems, family troubles, illnesses, social situations, and more. While a little bit of anxiety might prove helpful in these situations, some people experience anxiety that far exceeds the amount that is effective or appropriate. Similarly, some people experience anxiety without any identifiable triggers at all.

Anxiety can feel overwhelming and you might think nobody will ever understand what you are going through. The truth is you are not alone. Many people silently suffer from anxiety, functioning in society and doing their best to hide their symptoms from the world. In fact, anxiety is so common that it plays a prominent role in popular television shows like Rick and Morty, This Is Us, House, and Parks and Recreation just to name a few.

Perhaps you’ve seen those shows and can relate to some of the struggles they portray. If anxiety is interfering with your daily life, you might benefit from speaking to a therapist at Thriveworks Counseling in Katy, TX. Our office allows for online and in-person access to mental health professionals and mental health counselors that are highly experienced with treating different types of anxiety disorders.

Seeking help is a great first step toward living your best life and learning how to effectively manage your anxiety.

What Are Common Anxiety Symptoms?

Anxiety looks different for everyone. Some people might experience a dozen symptoms while others just have a few. Some people find ways to function regularly on a daily basis while others have a difficult time getting out of bed. Your anxiety symptoms will be unique to you but recognizing them is the first step towards understanding and getting help.

Common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Avoiding social events and situations
  • Experiencing intense panic attacks
  • Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Tight, tense muscles especially in the shoulders and neck area
  • Irritability or feeling agitated
  • Restlessness or difficulty concentrating
  • Intense fatigue and exhaustion
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Worrying excessively
  • Sweating or rapid heart rate
  • Dizziness or shortness of breath

If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, you might benefit from speaking to a mental health professional. Consider making an appointment with Thriveworks Counseling in Katy, TX.

How Can Anxiety Therapy Help?

The good news is that anxiety disorders are treatable. Counseling services at Thriveworks are designed to help you pinpoint your anxiety triggers and guide you on a path of managing your stress effectively. For example, one version of talk therapy called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on identifying negative thinking patterns and developing coping skills that are more effective.

Since anxiety affects different people in different ways, our therapists are trained to customize your treatment plan to your specific situation. Anxiety treatment often incorporates some version of talk therapy, medication, or a combination of both. At the first appointment, clients give their Thriveworks therapist a sense of their symptoms and how anxiety is interfering with their life,  and then they are guided over the coming weeks to get the care they need.
