Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Kenosha, WI 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 Kenosha 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 affect people in many different ways and can appear at almost any time. You may be on your way to school, grocery shopping, or in the middle of lunch when suddenly your heart begins to race and you’re overcome with an overwhelming feeling of dread.

Sometimes, anxiety or panic attacks can occur for no reason at all. Maybe it was a random thought or memory that triggered it, or perhaps it was a specific place, person, or object that influenced your response. But one thing is sure — those feelings of worry and fear are disruptive and can get in the way of everyday life.

If this ever happened to you, you may be living with an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a widespread mental health issue that affects millions of people all over the world. Anxiety can begin at any age, and people of all genders, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds are equally at risk.

Fortunately, treating anxiety is possible with the help of a psychologist, psychiatrist, or other licensed mental health professional. If you think you may be experiencing anxiety, consider meeting with a therapist or counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Kenosha, WI, for support. Contact our office today to set up your first appointment.

Common Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety

Anxiety disorders are not always easy to recognize. People with anxiety often attribute their symptoms to stress or other environmental factors, sweeping them under the rug or hoping they’ll go away on their own. Anxiety symptoms rarely resolve without treatment, and if left untreated, anxiety may worsen or lead to more severe mental illness.

There are many forms of anxiety, and the symptoms can vary significantly from one person to the next. Anxiety can look a little different for everyone, but there are some common signs and symptoms to consider, including the following:

  • Persistent or excessive feelings of fear, stress, or worry
  • Overwhelming feelings of impending danger or doom
  • Restlessness, agitation, or irritability
  • Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Muscle pain, tightness, or soreness
  • Isolation or avoidance
  • Trouble concentrating or thinking clearly
  • Rapid heart rate, hyperventilation, dizziness

Anxiety disorders may appear on their own or in combination with other mental health conditions or disorders. Symptoms of anxiety can also look similar to those caused by physical health problems, including heart or thyroid conditions. If you think you may be living with anxiety symptoms, working with a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Kenosha, WI can help you determine the cause of your symptoms and the best course of treatment.

What Can I Expect From Anxiety Therapy?

Anxiety disorders can be highly disruptive and interfere with your daily life, relationships, and even your performance at work or school. They can cause you to avoid certain places or events that cause anxiety symptoms or panic attacks. Specific phobias may even prevent you from taking part in basic activities or events. Fortunately, anxiety counseling or therapy can help overcome even the most difficult forms of anxiety.

Therapy for anxiety is a highly personalized experience built around your specific issues, concerns, and personality. A licensed therapist or counselor will assess your condition and various other factors, including your past experiences, symptoms, and emotional state, to develop a customized treatment plan.

Treatment plans for anxiety tend to include talk therapy, prescribed medication, and other therapeutic techniques. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, or exposure therapy are common types of therapy used in treating anxiety. Your provider may also recommend the addition of antianxiety medications to help reduce anxiety symptoms or manage your condition. Therapeutic techniques like meditation or practiced breathing can also help alleviate or prevent anxiety.
