Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Tom finds himself overthinking constantly. It first started when we got his new job, as the excitement and anticipation slowly changed to anxiety. He feels like any small mistake he makes at work could cost him his career. Though at one point he viewed moving up in the workforce as a blessing, now his newfound success is starting to feel like more of a curse. Tom knows it’s time for him to seek assistance; he doesn’t want his overthinking—his anxiety—to get in the way of his professional life. 

That’s why Tom has decided to talk with a mental health professional—someone he knows can help him work through the challenges and setbacks that hold him prisoner. With some professional encouragement and guidance, Tom feels confident that he’ll be able to better control and manage his anxiety. He also knows that he can choose between a counselor or therapist, and a psychiatrist, who can assist him by prescribing helpful medication to use in conjunction with therapy. 

Perhaps like Tom, you’re also looking to meet with a mental health professional to get assistance with your anxiety. At Thriveworks in Morgantown, WV, our anxiety therapists and counselors have years of experience in treating anxiety that stems from a wide variety of sources. Whatever is concerning you, rest assured that our mental health professionals will listen and provide compassionate guidance as you work through your anxiety—as a team. 

How Can a Counselor Help With My Anxiety? 

Your therapy experience will be influenced by your mental health needs, and if you are experiencing anxiety, your treatment plan will be designed to help you cope and mitigate the effects of anxiety on your mental wellbeing. Though anxiety is a disorder that affects every person differently, some common signs and symptoms of anxiety include: 

  • Difficulty sleeping 
  • Irrational fears or fixation on imaginary situations 
  • Racing thoughts 
  • Fatigue 
  • Nausea
  • Chronic health conditions like IBS, acid reflux, or an autoimmune disorder

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 you aren’t seeing your symptoms or problems being listed. And with that in mind, the only people qualified to diagnose or treat mental health conditions like anxiety are licensed providers, like our team at Thriveworks in Morgantown, WV.

Our providers help everyday people like you experience relief and newfound enjoyment from being able to better cope with and understand their anxiety. For some, connecting with one of our psychologists (also referred to as a therapist or counselor) is most beneficial. These types of mental health professionals assist clients through: 

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

Using therapy as the primary care method works well for many, but for others with more persistent or severe cases of anxiety, talking with and receiving treatment from a psychiatrist is more helpful. A unique provider type, psychiatrists specialize in mood and behavioral disorders. Psychiatrists are set apart by their medicinal background, being both licensed medical doctors and therapists simultaneously. These providers help clients with different types of anxiety by being able to: 

  • Prescribe helpful medication that assists clients in managing the disruptive, damaging symptoms of anxiety 
  • Use a combination of prescription medications and therapy sessions to treat clients, as needed 

Regardless of the mental health professional you’re matched with, taking proactive steps toward prioritizing your mental health can give you a big boost. Just think about it: taking the time to balance out our mental health needs allows us to be more present during the moments and situations that define our lives and ourselves.

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.
