Common Anxiety Disorders: 5 Major Types

As we mentioned before, there are many different ways people can experience anxiety. While some only experience anxiety every now and then, others experience anxiety daily. To help you better navigate your treatment process, a Thriveworks Tampa anxiety therapist will help you identify the type of anxiety you are dealing with. Here are the five major anxiety disorders:

  1. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is characterized by reoccurring and unwanted thoughts as well as repetitive behaviors.
  2. Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is characterized by magnified worry and tension, even without provocation.
  3. Panic Disorder: Panic Disorder is characterized by intense fear which causes physical symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or dizziness.
  4. PostTraumatic Stress Disorder: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is caused by exposure to a traumatic event. Those who suffer from PTSD experience many different symptoms including flashbacks, insomnia, fear, and more.
  5. Social Anxiety Disorder: Otherwise known as Social Phobia, Social Anxiety Disorder is characterized by anxiety caused in social situations and interactions. Those with this disorder might be triggered by situations such as public speaking, making phone calls, attending events, and more.

Help is available to anyone who may be experiencing any of the symptoms above. You can start working with a psychologist at Thriveworks Tampa Counseling as soon as today. Our anxiety therapists are ready to help with open arms.

Tips for Overcoming Anxiety

  1. Stay active: Exercise is a great way to reduce stress and improve your mood. Start slowly and gradually increase as you go.
  2. Change your thinking patterns: Try to think positively, making no room for negative ideas. What are your best qualities? What is one thing you’ve accomplished today, whether it’s big or small?
  3. Get enough sleep: By making sleep a priority, you can start to feel less fatigued and have more energy for your day to day routines. Try putting your phone down an hour before you go to bed and occupy your mind with a book if you’re having trouble falling asleep.
  4. Know your triggers: By identifying what activities or people induce your feelings of anxiety, you can better distance yourself from them and focus on healthier activities to keep you calm.
