Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Millions of people around the world suffer from a mental disorder each year. And one of the most common mental health conditions, especially in the United States, is anxiety.

Anxiety can leave you feeling overwhelmed, worried, and unsettled. It’s essential to pay attention to any anxiety symptoms you might have so that you can get professional help sooner rather than later. The longer you put off getting the help you need, the worse your symptoms might get.

Anxiety is a serious mental disorder that can benefit from a mental health professional’s assessment.

Managing difficult emotions isn’t easy, but thankfully, you don’t have to do it alone. If you’re ready to get started on the road to better mental wellbeing, give us a call.

What Does Anxiety Look and Feel Like?

As we touched on earlier, anxiety can make you feel overwhelmed and unsettled. You might develop anxiety after going through a traumatic event or out of the blue. Regardless, it’s essential to understand the symptoms and recognize when you are feeling anxious. Common symptoms include:

  • Excessive worry
  • Restlessness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Changes in sleeping habits
  • Changes in appetite
  • Excessive sweating
  • Feeling of impending doom

This list doesn’t encompass every sign or symptom that may come with anxiety. However, these are some of the most common.
