Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Tallahassee, FL 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 Tallahassee 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 Does Anxiety Look Like?

Anxiety may present as the following symptoms:

  • Restlessness
  • Muscle tension
  • Agitation
  • Racing thoughts
  • Shortness of breath
  • Disturbed sleep 
  • Appetite changes
  • Nausea
  • Quality of being easily tired
  • Gastrointestinal issues like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Attention or concentration difficulties
  • Irritability
  • Migraines

Thriveworks therapists are trained to recognize anxiety symptoms and to implement successful treatment strategies that best suit their clients. 

What Therapy Is Good for Anxiety?

There are several evidence-based treatment approaches that Thriveworks counselors may use, including but no limited to:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Exposure therapy, especially for specific phobias of objects or situations (also called systematic desensitization)
  • Strength-based therapies
  • Person-centered therapies
  • Emotion-focused therapy
  • Mindfulness training
  • Trauma-informed therapy
  • Meditation

Does CBT Therapy Work in the Long Run?

Cognitive behavioral therapy has a high success rate in treating anxiety in the long term. It works by identifying and then modifying the thought patterns that lead to anxiety. For example, someone who has social anxiety might use their time in therapy to examine their beliefs about worst-case scenarios. Through cognitive restructuring with a licensed Thriveworks therapist, the client can retrain their brain to think in more adaptive ways. 

What Types of Anxiety Disorders Are There?

There are many different types of anxiety disorders, though their symptoms can overlap. Only a qualified mental health professional like those at Thriveworks in Tallahassee, FL can accurately diagnose anxiety disorders. Once a client has a diagnosis, they can begin successful treatment. Anxiety disorders listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) include the following:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), which causes significant distress 
  • Panic disorder, which involves brief, acute episodes called panic attacks
  • Social anxiety disorder (social phobia), which causes significant distress in social situations
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), which is characterized by mental fixations and repetitive behaviors
  • Separation anxiety, which involves the fear of being separated from one’s attachment figures
  • Specific phobias, which include claustrophobia, the fear of enclosed spaces 
  • Agoraphobia, which involves a fear that you can’t escape your surroundings
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is a response to a traumatic event
  • Selective mutism, which can render a person incapable of speech
