Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Keeping track of how often we might feel anxious can be difficult. Especially when our busy lives warrant a lot of attention. There are probably a lot of triggers that come to mind when you consider what makes you feel anxious, like: 

  • Work 
  • Kids 
  • Relationships and friendships
  • Personal health 
  • Finances 
  • Regrets about the past 
  • Worries about the future 

These are just some possible triggers of anxiety. And it makes sense—after all, these are some of the most important things in our lives. And worrying about these relationships and concepts usually means that we care; it signifies that we want something to turn out well. That’s why worrying can be good to a certain extent. But when anxiety crosses the line from occasional overthinking to a persistent roadblock, therapy for your anxiety could help tremendously. 

Nevertheless, at Thriveworks in Pearland, TX, we understand that your personal worries and fears are difficult to overcome and perhaps even harder to share with others. Our therapists and psychiatrists approach themes of anxiety much like we do other aspects of mental health: with an emphasis on the client’s experience. So even if what you’re currently going through is difficult, rest assured that finding the relief you from Thriveworks won’t be. 

Anxiety: How Therapy Can Help 

Anxiety takes many different forms, and each of us processes the stress it induces in unique ways. You might be experiencing anxiety if you feel any of the following: 

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

These are just some of the ways that anxiety might be manifesting for you. However, it’s not possible nor a good idea to attempt to diagnose yourself with anxiety—our therapists and psychiatrists can assist you with that. 

Our mental health professionals work with clients to find a treatment method that produces results and provides relief. To be successful, our therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists have experience and a deep understanding of anxiety, and how it might manifest into different disorders. There are many types of anxiety disorders, and no two clients will have identical symptoms. However, the most common forms of anxiety include: 

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD): This anxiety disorder causes those with it to irrationally fixate on scenarios, tasks, or thought loops.  
  • Social anxiety disorder: This disorder disrupts an individual’s ability to engage comfortably in social interactions. Though the severity of this condition varies, sufferers often feel ostracized from friends and family, and their career and romantic lives might be dramatically affected. 
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): An anxiety disorder with no specified triggers. Generalized anxiety might affect multiple areas of someone’s life. 
  • Panic disorder: Those with panic disorders experience panic attacks, which leave them feeling short of breath, dizzy, nauseated and out of breath. 
  • Post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD): PTSD afflicts sufferers with flashbacks to intense events that they’ve witnessed or been a part of. This condition can also lead to insomnia, nightmares, or feelings of being emotionally drained. 

Because of the ingrained nature of anxiety disorders and their disruptive effects on a productive or happy life, these conditions are often best treated by psychiatrists. Our psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Pearland, TX, use a combination of therapeutic and medicinal approaches that aim to help our clients successfully cope with the symptoms of an anxiety disorder.

V Ashleigh was excellent. I wish we had more sessions with her but insurance tangled us up. Counseling via Zoom was my first. It takes longer to get acquainted when not in person. But it was convenient.
