Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

It’s common to experience anxiety sometimes—to feel nervous or worried. Say, when your boss asks about your progress on a pressing task, or when your brand-new car breaks down on the interstate. When your partner calls saying you two need to talk, or when you’re waiting to hear back from a potential employer. Sometimes, though, these nerves and this worry are heightened—it can be better described as a debilitating fear instead. And you experience it often, not just occasionally. Additionally, you struggle with other harmful feelings like panic, impending doom, and fatigue. Worst of all, you can’t control it. This is when anxiety becomes a problem. This is an anxiety disorder, which doesn’t just pass, but often requires asking for a little help and receiving treatment.

“Asking for help isn’t weak, it’s a great example

of how to take care of yourself.” –Charlie Brown

We have good news: there are mental health professionals who focus their work in helping people with anxiety. Counseling is an effective form of treatment for people with an anxiety disorder, as it is designed to help these individuals better manage their symptoms and live a happier, healthier life. If your anxiety is getting out of control and/or you think that you have an anxiety disorder, reach out to Thriveworks Savannah. The anxiety counselors at Thriveworks specialize in helping clients with their anxiety, and they have specific skills, training, and experience to create a successful counseling experience.

What Is Anxiety? Signs and Symptoms

Symptoms of anxiety vary depending on the anxiety disorder one is dealing with. There’s generalized anxiety disorder, which is characterized by excessive worry and fear in a variety of situations, and then there are anxiety disorders that have more specific triggers. For example, social anxiety disorder is characterized by anxiety that arises in social situations. That said, there are common symptoms of anxiety, including:

  • Extreme worry or fear
  • Sense of danger or doom
  • Rapid heart rate and/or breath
  • Trembling
  • Sweating
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Inability to control worry

The symptoms one experiences can vary. Additionally, anxiety disorders vary in severity. However, regardless of your presentation and the severity of your condition, an anxiety counselor can help. They can help you manage your symptoms, better understand where your anxiety comes from, and how to best move forward from here.

How Does Anxiety Counseling Work? How Can It Help?

We just discussed how anxiety can vary in presentation and severity. Because of this, anxiety counseling also varies—as it is based on your symptoms, the severity of your disorder, and your overall needs/goals in counseling. Once your counselor touches base with all of these considerations, they can design treatment to best help your situation. That said, here are more specific examples of how your anxiety counselor can help you:

  • They can help you understand major factors contributing to your anxiety.
  • Counselors can also teach you about negative thinking patterns, which often cause or exacerbate anxiety.
  • They can teach you techniques for changing those negative thoughts and adopting positive thoughts instead.
  • They can assist you in changing unhealthy habits and behaviors that are rooted in or contribute to your anxiety.
  • Counselors can also help you overcome fears that your mind and/or body have learned.
  • They will ultimately guide you on a journey, in which the end destination is better anxiety management and an improved quality of life.

Remember that while the above are characteristic of anxiety counseling, the exact path of treatment will depend on your symptoms and needs. Know that whatever you’re facing, the anxiety counselors at Thriveworks Savannah will devote your sessions to helping you manage your anxiety and live a happier, more successful life.
