Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Do You Have Symptoms of an Anxiety Disorder?

While diagnosing yourself with any sort of mental condition isn’t possible, knowing the symptoms of a disorder that might be presenting itself or beginning to manifest can be helpful. Keep in mind that many of those who suffer from anxiety disorders have different symptoms, but if you’re facing recurrent anxiety you may feel the following: 

  • Nausea or dizziness, rapid heartbeat 
  • Restlessness, agitation 
  • The sensation of being emotionally drained 
  • Difficulty sleeping or insomnia 
  • Racing thoughts that are difficult to manage 
  • Chronic fatigue or bowel conditions like IBS, acid reflux, or IBD

For many people, these symptoms become a constant and malignant disruption. Because of the nature of these disorders, many people with anxiety conditions benefit from connecting with our psychiatrists, who can assist in unique and dynamic ways. 

Anxiety Disorders

Some of the anxiety disorders that our therapists and counselors help treat include: 

  • Generalized anxiety disorder: As the name implies, this disorder often doesn’t arise from a specific source. Those with it often struggle to describe or understand where the sensation of constantly being on edge comes from
  • Post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD): PTSD is usually triggered by a specific event or set of events that the sufferer witnessed, or was part of. These memories can be recent or from the distant past. Those with PTSD are often plagued by nightmares, flashbacks, and might seem withdrawn.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): People affected with OCD often fixate on irrational thoughts, or repetitive actions or behaviors. Those with this condition may additionally have extreme superstitious beliefs. 
  • Social anxiety disorder: This condition causes individuals to face extreme anxiety during or prior to social interactions. It can be triggered by everything from concerts to small family gatherings. 
  • Panic disorder: This anxiety disorder is well-known for causing panic attacks. People with panic disorder, when triggered, experience chest pain or tightness, cold sweats, dizziness, and nausea as a result of their anxiety.
