Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in New Orleans, LA 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 New Orleans 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.

What Is Anxiety Counseling?

Many people with anxiety attend weekly talk therapy sessions to work through their recurring symptoms and mitigate their symptoms. For example, one form of therapy called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) involves using coping mechanisms to address the root of your issues, reduce anxiety, and help regulate your emotional state.

When you begin working with a Thriveworks therapist or counselor, they will ask about your needs, challenges, and personal goals. This will help them create a treatment plan unique to your situation. Beyond in-session techniques for addressing anxiety, a therapist may offer helpful tips and techniques for use in your daily life, like: 

  • Breathing exercises 
  • Mindfulness techniques
  • Stress management skills

Seeking the assistance of a therapist or counselor via anxiety therapy can be a step in the right direction.

When you meet with a licensed mental health professional, you can speak with them about your symptoms and the issues you’ve been dealing with at home, work, or school. 

How Does Anxiety Counseling Work?

Anxiety counseling uses therapeutic approaches that help you understand the triggers of your anxiety, and offers you real-life, practical tools and information to counteract the effects of chronic anxiety, some of which include:

  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Restlessness
  • Unwanted or intrusive thoughts
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Excessive worry
  • Persistent fear
  • Drastic changes in appetite or mood
  • Sleep disruption, such as insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Social anxiety
  • Panic attacks (panic disorder)
