Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Do you feel like you can’t talk to your family or friends about your anxiety? Do you feel like no one understands what you’re going through? Many people have the experience of mentioning their anxiety only for their friends to tell them “Don’t be silly!” or “There’s nothing to worry about!”

While these responses are usually said to try and help, they can be extremely invalidating for the person experiencing the anxiety. If there’s nothing to worry about, then why do I feel so overwhelmed?

It’s difficult for those who aren’t experiencing a mental illness to truly understand what you are going through. But that doesn’t mean you need to keep your feelings to yourself. The licensed therapists at Thriveworks in Munster, IN provide a safe space to talk about your concerns and have experience treating anxiety disorders. We guide clients on the path to recovery by alleviating their symptoms and teaching them proven coping strategies.

If you’re feeling anxious and are ready to turn your life around, mental health professionals are standing by at Thriveworks in Munster, IN. Reach out today to schedule your first appointment.

How Do You Know You Have Anxiety Symptoms?

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues faced by Americans today. Millions every year struggle with different types of anxiety disorders and symptoms, ranging from social anxiety and phobias to severe panic attacks and generalized anxiety disorder.

While being stressed or anxious is normal for everyone from time to time, here are some signs that you may have an anxiety disorder:

  • Feeling tense or stressed most of the time
  • Feeling so restless you can’t relax
  • Finding yourself trapped in a cycle of worrying
  • Ruminating about the same thing over and over
  • Excessive sweating
  • Heart palpitations
  • Trouble breathing or panic attacks
  • Mood swings

What Can I Expect From Anxiety Therapy?

When you’re suffering from anxiety and are ready to make a change, the first step is to schedule a consultation. Your mental health professional will discuss your anxiety symptoms with you, including their severity, how long they’ve been present, and any potential triggers. They may guide you through a self-assessment and other psychological tests to determine the extent of your condition. You’ll also discuss the different options available to help treat your anxiety.

We offer several types of therapy to treat anxiety, including:

  • Interpersonal therapy
  • Exposure therapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)

People suffering from social anxiety disorder may require a different treatment plan from those suffering from panic disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Your mental health provider will work with you to figure out the right course of action for your specific situation. You may also learn coping mechanisms or relaxation techniques (such as deep breathing and meditation exercises) to help you more effectively tolerate distress and calm down in the face of symptoms.

If you’re ready to take the first step on your healing journey, contact the mental health experts at Thriveworks in Munster, IN.
