Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Little Elm, 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 Little Elm 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 brain can imagine the future, but it can also imagine the worst possible future. Over time, this tendency can become a source of acute anxiety. A little anxiety can sometimes be healthy, but when your fears and worries become overwhelming and interfere with regular functioning, then it may need to be managed. Fortunately, Thriveworks can help.

The anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Little Elm, TX ensure that clients get mental health care from industry-leading experts. If you’ve been feeling anxious, it may be helpful to schedule an anxiety counseling session.

Can I Go to a Family Doctor for Anxiety?

Many people with anxiety first present to a family doctor or even a hospital emergency room with their symptoms. This is because anxiety can sometimes cause physical symptoms like migraines, sweating, nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath, and digestive difficulties. 

People with anxiety may experience irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or another condition that calls for medical care. Or someone having a panic attack due to panic disorder may rush to the emergency room with the fear that they’re having a heart attack. 

But primary care doctors are not anxiety therapists. Licensed mental health providers like those on our clinical team at Thriveworks in Little Elm, TX have expert knowledge. They know how to diagnose, treat, and help prevent anxiety. 

Thriveworks psychiatrists can prescribe anti-anxiety medication to support neurochemical health. Thriveworks psychotherapists can utilize various types of therapy like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to reduce anxiety in the short term and long term. 

And Thriveworks licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) can help you and your family members find coping strategies at home. 

What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety?

There are many different types of anxiety and their symptoms and treatment plans may differ. Mental health professionals who specialize in anxiety counseling may look for the following symptoms in clients: 

  • Excessive anxiety and worry that’s difficult to control.
  • Restlessness or feelings of being worked up
  • Physical and mental fatigue
  • Attention difficulties 
  • Irritability
  • Muscle tension
  • Disorganization

These are just a few of the many ways that a mental health disorder like anxiety can manifest, so it’s important not to be worried if what you’re feeling isn’t listed—anxiety counseling can help you understand and manage your unique symptoms.
