Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Tempe, AZ 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 Tempe 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.

Signs and Symptoms of an Anxiety Disorder

There are many types of anxiety disorders and each person may experience them differently. However, some of the most common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Excessive worrying
  • Muscle tension
  • Panic attacks
  • Agitation
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia and disruptions to sleep patterns
  • Self-induced social isolation
  • Substance abuse

How Can Anxiety Therapy Help?

Just as there are many types of anxiety disorders, there are also many types of therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is among the most common ways to treat anxiety.

CBT revolves around analyzing thought patterns and how they impact your behavior and emotions. This makes it possible to adjust your thought patterns to minimize your anxiety response and approach situations differently.

Dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT, is a specific form of CBT focusing on encouraging healthier emotional responses to minimize harmful behaviors and overwhelming anxiety symptoms. You may learn coping mechanisms to manage anxious feelings, including deep breathing, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques.

Exposure therapy is another kind of therapy that is particularly useful for PTSD, social anxiety, phobias, and several other conditions. When it is difficult for a client to approach certain situations, a trained professional will develop a plan to help introduce the client to the fear in a slow and measured way.

If you’re interested in working through your symptoms and identifying the treatment options that may work best for you, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Thriveworks Counseling in Tempe, AZ today.
