Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Dinah has always considered herself an organized person—as an interior designer, it’s been a helpful quality to have. She’s always had an aptitude for organization and efficiency; but at times, her compulsion to arrange things has created tension between herself and others. This tendency has been a real issue for her at home, where she often makes other family members feel uncomfortable. Even though Dinah doesn’t believe she’s doing anything wrong by controlling her environment, she knows that these tendencies are starting to alienate her from her loved ones.

And on another level, Dinah knows that her tendencies arise from deep-seated anxiety. Without having the freedom to arrange the space around her, Dinah starts to feel anxiety bubbling forth. After doing some reading online and taking time to consider, Dinah feels like she may have a form of anxiety. But instead of fighting these stressful feelings alone, Dinah wants to talk to a mental health professional about her situation. 

Like Dinah, many people suffer from the symptoms of anxiety. It’s normal to experience anxiousness in our day-to-day lives, but when anxiety transforms from an occasional burden to a daily struggle, it may be time for professional support. At Thriveworks in Louisville, KY our team of mental health professionals can help treat your anxiety through therapy or counseling services. Call our office today to find out more. 

Could I Have Anxiety? What Are the Symptoms of Anxiety?

Anxiety takes many different forms and can arise from highly specific situations, depending on the person. Though anxiety can manifest itself differently in each person, there are several common symptoms that might indicate that you’re suffering from anxiety, like: 

  • Constantly feeling stressed 
  • Desire to avoid social encounters 
  • Racing thoughts, inability to focus on daily tasks 
  • Constant fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Reliving traumatic experiences in dreams or flashbacks

These are only a few of the many different ways that our mental health professionals can help to treat your anxiety, so don’t be concerned if you don’t see your specific situation symptoms being listed. By talking openly with a provider about your experience, you’ll provide them with the feedback they need to offer you solutions and ways to cope with anxiety. 

What Type of Provider Should I Talk to About My Anxiety? 

At Thriveworks in Louisville, KY our clients commonly receive treatment from either a counselor, therapist, or psychiatrist about their anxiety. Though each type of provider can assist with the disruptive symptoms of anxiety, they do so in different ways. Our counselors and therapists can help to treat anxiety by: 

  • Teaching clients coping mechanisms to use in real-life, anxiety-inducing situations
  • Using talk therapy or behavioral therapy to promote self-awareness 
  • Helping family members or partners to understand their loved one’s anxiety through relationship therapy or family counseling 

In comparison, our psychiatrists:

  • Are medical doctors and can prescribe helpful medication that assists clients in managing the disruptive, damaging symptoms of anxiety 
  • Can use a combination of therapy and prescriptions that may treat more severe cases of anxiety more successfully

No type of provider is better than the others. Whatever type of mental health professional you’re paired with, you’ll receive the same top-quality treatment that thousands of others have come to expect from Thriveworks. 

Are There Different Forms of Anxiety?

There are many forms of anxiety, but some of the most common that our providers help to treat include: 

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): GAD causes anxiety in different scenarios, whether real or imagined. This disorder can be difficult to identify because it isn’t triggered by any single source of anxiety. 
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): This disorder often induces irrational thought loops, or impulses to perform random physical actions in repetition. 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): PTSD, can occur in anyone that has been through a psychologically or physically painful event. Those who suffer from it are often privy to flashbacks to traumatic events, nightmares, and antisocial behavior.
  • Social anxiety disorder: Social anxiety induces distress while engaging with other people. Everything from grocery runs to birthday parties can be cumbersome, fear-filled events.
  • Panic disorder: Panic disorder can cause panic attacks. These physical episodes might result in dizziness, chest pain, vertigo, and nausea.
