What is anxiety therapy?
Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Cave Spring, VA 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 Cave Spring 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.

Need more help deciding?
Anxiety and fear are common and affect more people than you may expect. However, we often have difficulty discerning between the two. Fear is generally a response to a real or perceived threat and is usually tied to something very specific. On the other hand, anxiety is typically characterized by the general feeling of continual worry or stress, and it’s usually difficult to pinpoint the source of this worry or anxiety on your own. Not only is anxiety common, but it’s normal. Almost everyone experiences anxiety at some point in their lives, but it is when anxiety becomes a constant presence in your life that it translates into a serious problem.
Anxiety has the potential to take a firm hold on your life, and can leave you feeling that it will never go away. The effects when anxiety creeps in at this level are numerous and often create both mental and physical problems. Unfortunately, the damage from anxiety doesn’t stop there; the physical and metal effects bring with them a negative impact on your interpersonal relationships as well.
