Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Joshua has always struggled with social anxiety. Recently, he moved to a new city where he doesn’t know anyone. The stress of moving has made his anxiety much worse and he’s terrified at the thought of going out to meet people.

After a few weeks, Joshua is tired of feeling this way and he decides to talk with a mental health professional. His therapist diagnoses him with social anxiety disorder and teaches him relaxation techniques he can use to feel more comfortable around people. After a few sessions, Joshua starts incorporating some helpful coping skills and builds up the courage to invite a coworker out for dinner after work. He knows it will take time to feel comfortable in larger groups but he’s happy to see progress so soon.

People with anxiety know that it can be draining. Worry and stress are a normal part of life but an anxiety disorder can be persistent and overwhelming. Thankfully, licensed counselors and therapists are available to help you find relief, address your concerns, and mitigate your symptoms.

Anxiety: Symptoms and Most Common Types

Some level of anxiety is completely normal and expected. You might feel anxious before a performance review at work or during a major presentation, for example. But anxiety can become a problem when it is persistent and interferes with everyday tasks.

Some common symptoms of an anxiety disorder include:

  • Uncontrollable worry of fear
  • Racing thoughts
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Feelings of dread, panic, or impending doom
  • Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
  • Feeling irritated or uneasy
  • Overthinking
  • Sweating
  • Shaking
  • Dry mouth
  • Fatigue or lack of energy
  • Rapid heartbeat

The type and severity of the symptoms you face may be influenced, at least in part, by the kind of anxiety disorder you have. Here are a few of the most common ones:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder: This disorder is characterized by persistent and excessive worry about a wide variety of things. Someone with generalized anxiety disorder can experience any of the anxiety symptoms listed above, sometimes without any discernible reason.
  • Social anxiety disorder: People with social anxiety disorder often worry about judgment or embarrassment in social situations. This fear can be stressful and can cause people to avoid socializing.
  • Panic disorder: People with a panic disorder experience panic attacks, which are intense bouts of fear and anxiety that flare up quickly. These attacks can be traumatic and people with a panic disorder may do everything they can to avoid future attacks.

What Can I Expect From Anxiety Therapy?

Therapists and counselors help people with anxiety, typically by incorporating one or more kinds of psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy. Some of the most common types of therapy include exposure therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Your provider will get to know you and your goals before creating a customized treatment plan that keeps your needs top of mind.

You’re in the driver’s seat throughout the therapeutic process. Your therapist or counselor will guide the discussion to help you gain helpful insights but the process is collaborative. You’ll help set the tone, pace, and topics of discussion for each session.

Plus, you can decide whether you’d prefer to take therapy appointments from our office or remotely. If you choose remote appointments, you can take video sessions or phone calls from your office, your home, or wherever you feel most comfortable.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
