Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Types of Anxiety Disorders

The anxiety therapists at our office are trained in diagnosing types of anxiety and offering treatment plans based on your situation. You could be experiencing any number of anxiety conditions, including:

  1. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): A type of anxiety disorder that is caused by a previous traumatic event. Those who have PTSD suffer from anxiety brought on by triggers (objects or situations) that remind them of their trauma.
  2. Social Anxiety Disorder: People experience social anxiety due to fear of becoming embarrassed or rejected in social situations. This can include going to public events, presenting during a meeting, or simply making a phone call to someone new.
  3. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): This is the most common form of anxiety and presents itself in many different ways. People with this type of anxiety experience symptoms for many different reasons including worrying about responsibilities, making sure their family members are okay, and just dealing with general negative thoughts.
  4. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): This disorder is characterized by having obsessive thoughts and compulsions that greatly affect daily living. This can present through obsessively cleaning, hoarding, constantly checking on things, and obsessive thoughts that could be harmful to yourself or others
  5. Panic Disorder: Panic Disorder is a type of anxiety that induces panic attacks. This can be brought on by fear or can randomly happen when you’re least expecting it. Panic attacks typically last about 10 minutes and have symptoms of chest pain, hot flashes, feeling dizzy, inability to breathe normally, and feelings of choking.

Treatment for Anxiety 

The hardest part about getting help is deciding to ask for it. But once you do, you’ll slowly realize that living the successful life you’ve always wanted is possible. Treating disorders like anxiety can be a complex process. To tackle them, your therapist will first assess your thoughts and feelings to create a custom treatment plan based on your needs. Then, they’ll utilize a variety of methods and techniques to help you learn how to cope, manage, and overcome your challenging emotions. 

Talk-based therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, relaxation techniques, and management techniques are types of therapies that could be used to reduce anxiety. Lifestyle interventions, such as improved nutrition and exercise can also be recommended. In instances where you might be a good fit for a medication, your therapist will work closely with your primary care doctor or psychiatrist to ensure the correct medication is administered for your needs.
