Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

We all feel anxious every now and then. We worry about an impromptu meeting with our manager; we worry about our plane taking off and landing safely; we worry about how tough conversations with our loved ones will go. But some of us experience anxious thoughts and feelings more than others and to a higher degree.

You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.”

–Martin Luther King

Anxiety Disorders: PTSD, OCD, Generalized Anxiety, and More

There is a multitude of anxiety disorders out there that might explain why you’re feeling, thinking, or behaving a certain way. For example, generalized anxiety is characterized by that day to day anxious thinking, while social anxiety is characterized by those anxious thoughts and feelings you might experience in social situations.

Here is a shortlist of common anxiety disorders and a little about each:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder: As we just explained, generalized anxiety is characterized by anxiety one experiences on a day to day basis in many different scenarios.
  • Social anxiety disorder: Social anxiety disorder is marked by anxiety one experiences in social situations. Some people with social anxiety feel anxious in any and all social engagements, while others experience social anxiety in more specific scenarios, like when they are public speaking.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder: This disorder, often called OCD, is characterized by obsessive thoughts and fears as well as compulsive behaviors. Many people with OCD have a fear of germs or are compelled to arrange things in a certain way.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder: This disorder, shortened to PTSD, occurs after an individual has experienced a traumatic event. Specific triggers often bring unwanted memories as well as anxious thoughts and fears back to the individual. On top of anxiety, symptoms include irritability, hostility, hypervigilance, and flashbacks.

These disorders can make day to day functioning difficult and/or unenjoyable. If you are experiencing any anxiety symptoms, please talk to a professional and get the help that you need. Thriveworks Counseling in Lawrenceville, GA (Sugarloaf) would be happy to set you up with one of our anxiety experts.

Anxiety Treatment: What Will Help Me?

There is good news here: Anxiety is a highly treatable mental illness. There are a couple of forms of treatment that prove effective—therapy and medication—but self-care techniques can help, too! Let’s talk a little about each:

  1. Anxiety therapy: Therapy for anxiety often involves cognitive behavioral therapy, as this approach to counseling helps one better understand and correct their negative thinking, of which contributes to anxiety. For example, someone with social anxiety might benefit from changing false, negative thoughts that others judge or dislike them.
  2. Medication for anxiety disorders: Medication can help people with anxiety, too. To be more specific, antidepressants are commonly used to help people relieve their anxiety symptoms.
  3. Self-care: As is always true, self-care is important here. You can learn to relieve and manage your anxiety using self-care practices, like journaling, deep breathing, exercising, and so on.

When it comes down to it, it’s all about what works for you. Some people find that anxiety therapy is all they need to manage their anxiety; others benefit more from medication; and others need a combination of all three of the treatments listed above.

If you’re suffering from anxiety, Thriveworks Counseling in Lawrenceville, GA (Sugarloaf) can assist you. We can help you figure out what’s going on and what can help you feel better.

Dr. Tressa Stiles is an amazing therapist who immediately put me at ease with the way she was able to hear what I was saying. I felt understood and that there was no judgement. While she took time to hear me, she also offered a few suggestions to try out and that I found helpful. The most important thing to me is knowing I have a safe space where I can share what’s troubling me.
