Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety therapy helps people better understand and manage their anxiety. Anxiety therapists at Thriveworks in Thousand Oaks, CA 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 Thousand Oaks 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?

Tom has begun to worry about everything — his job, his family, his finances. He constantly thinks the worst is going to happen and has begun drinking alcohol to cope with his worries. He is irritable with his family and friends and has even begun to see his weight drop due to his loss of appetite.

His friends and family notice the change in him but he dismisses their concerns. He continues to isolate himself and though he is suffering from extreme anxiety, Tom doesn’t know how to help himself.

Anxiety is common during stressful times. But when those fearful feelings reach an unmanageable level, as in Tom’s case, they can be overwhelming and start to interfere with daily life and responsibilities.

Anxiety disorders are experienced by millions of people and are some of the most common mental health issues. However, many people do not seek professional help because they think they should just be able to “get over” their feelings on their own. There is often a negative stigma associated with reaching out for mental health support but there is no shame in getting help when you need it.

If you or someone you care about is experiencing symptoms of anxiety, consider reaching out for professional support. A licensed counselor or therapist at Thriveworks in Thousand Oaks, CA can help you get your life back on track. Our licensed mental health professionals are trained to help people with anxiety reduce their symptoms and return to a happier and healthier quality of life.

Common Symptoms of Anxiety

Anxiety symptoms can look different for different people. However, anxiety disorders often present several common symptoms, including:

  • Restlessness or jitters
  • Difficulty concentrating or staying focused on task
  • Sleep disruption (either insomnia or hypersomnia)
  • Excessive worry
  • Fatigue
  • Acute irritability
  • Change in appetite or weight
  • A sense of impending doom
  • Panic attacks
  • Social anxiety

If you are suffering from anxiety symptoms, give us a call at Thriveworks in Thousand Oaks, CA today. We can help you mitigate your symptoms and turn your life around. You do not have to go through this alone.

What Does Anxiety Therapy Look Like?

When you choose to make an appointment with a counselor or therapist at Thriveworks at Thousand Oaks, CA, your provider will sit down with you to assess your situation and develop a customized plan of treatment specifically for you.

Your treatment plan may include talk therapy, which can help you work through your emotions, troubling thoughts, and worries. One popular type of talk therapy is called cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which helps examine thought patterns that may be negatively affecting your emotions, behavior, and interactions. Other types of therapy used during treatment include exposure therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and psychoanalysis.

Your treatment plan may also include some type of medication. If so, your mental health care professional will prescribe it for you and can monitor for any possible side effects. Your provider may also teach you coping skills or relaxation techniques to help reduce anxiety between appointments.

Some of these helpful practices include:

  • Self-care activities
  • Deep breathing exercises
  • Mindfulness exercises
  • Stress management techniques
  • Aerobic or anaerobic exercise
