Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Everyone experiences anxiety or stress from time to time. Most of the time, feeling nervous or anxious is evidence that you care about something and want it to go well. Pushing through these everyday anxieties and finding ways to control stress are normal parts of life.

But what if you’re nervous all the time, about everything? Existing in this heightened state of alertness can interfere with your life by preventing you from doing things you want to do, seeing people you care about and going to the places you want to go.

Dealing with an anxiety disorder can make it feel like you’re leading a life half-lived. It can be stifling to constantly worry and anticipate the worst outcomes, especially when it impacts the choices you make. Luckily, help is available, and you don’t have to let your anxiety control your life.

Working with a licensed mental health professional, like the counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Counseling in Medford, OR can help you reduce anxiety and find balance in your life. If you’re ready to begin this journey, reach out to schedule an appointment with us today.

Do I Have an Anxiety Disorder?

As mentioned above, it’s normal to feel anxious from time to time, and especially in certain situations. But if your nerves regularly keep you from living the life you want, you may want to consider whether you’re exhibiting signs of an anxiety disorder.

Symptoms of anxiety may include any of the following:

  • Feeling on-edge, fearful, and tense for most of the day
  • Intensity of worry or fear doesn’t match the situation
  • Trouble falling and staying asleep
  • Panic attacks
  • Rapid heart rate and breathing
  • Feeling exhausted and weak
  • Avoiding activities, objects, or situations that trigger your anxiety
  • Appetite loss
  • Muscle aches, frequent headaches, or other unexplained body pains

It’s possible to experience anxiety symptoms for some time without realizing it, and you may believe that they are just a normal part of life. But living in a constant state of fear or worry can take its toll. Therapy for anxiety can help you reduce anxiety and the effect it has on your daily life.

Diagnosing your specific disorder is the first step in treating anxiety. There are numerous forms of anxiety, and each has unique causes and symptoms. Some common types of anxiety include:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Separation anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Specific phobias

Putting a name to your symptoms and experience can help you understand what you’re going through. A therapist or counselor at Thriveworks in Medford, OR can help you determine if you’re facing an anxiety disorder and give you the tools to cope with your symptoms.

What To Expect From Anxiety Therapy

Everyone’s experience with anxiety is unique, and symptoms may vary from one person to the next. Your anxiety treatment will also be one-of-a-kind and may even differ from that of others with the same diagnosis.

There are some general expectations you can have for anxiety therapy or counseling. Whether your treatment includes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, interpersonal therapy, or another type of talk therapy, you can expect to learn a lot about your thinking patterns and how they influence your behavior.

People with anxiety give a lot of power to their thoughts, whether or not those thoughts are an accurate reflection of reality. For example, someone with social anxiety may have had an embarrassing experience at a party and now believes that they will be embarrassed every time they attend a party. Although this is an unlikely outcome, anxiety can often convince you that such generalizations are true.

During counseling or therapy sessions, you’ll practice critically assessing these generalizations, separating fact from fiction, and preventing agitation caused by unfounded worries. To help you with this, your therapist or counselor might suggest lifestyle changes such as yoga or meditation or recommend a prescription anti-anxiety medication to reduce anxiety and manage other symptoms.

A licensed mental health professional at Thriveworks in Medford, OR, can create a personalized treatment plan just for you and break it down into actionable goals. No matter where you are in your journey with anxiety, our counselors and therapists can help you take the next step.

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.
