Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Explaining what anxiety looks and feels like isn’t a simple feat. In fact, it’s difficult for many people to properly understand all that comes with anxiety if they haven’t experienced it themselves.

To summarize, anxiety refers to racing, uncontrollable thoughts that interfere with one’s normal life. Some people experience anxiety in different situations throughout their day. Stress at work or home might trigger anxious thinking for these individuals. Other people experience anxiety in more specific circumstances. For example, some people experience anxiety as a result of a traumatic event. And when they are reminded of their trauma, their anxiety kicks into high-gear.

The specifics of anxiety can look very different from one person to the next. However, there is a commonality among those who suffer with it: Their anxiety interferes with their ability to live happily and successfully. The good news is that there are mental health professionals who are trained and experienced in helping people deal with these unpleasant thoughts and feelings properly.

We have mental health providers who specialize in helping their clients manage their anxiety properly. This typically involves working together to identify the cause(s) of your anxiety, learning coping mechanisms to employ when you start to feel anxious, and more. If you think anxiety therapy could make a difference in your life, call Thriveworks in Toledo, OH now. We’ll set you up with an anxiety therapist right away.

Anxiety Disorders: What Type of Anxiety Do I Have?

As we started to delve into earlier, there are different types of anxiety. There is the “general” anxiety that people experience in a range of circumstances, which is called generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). 

There are also other anxiety disorders that are characterized by more specific occurrences of anxiety. For example:

  1. Social phobia: Social phobia, otherwise called social anxiety disorder, is a form of anxiety that is triggered in social situations. Often, those who suffer with social anxiety worry about being negatively perceived by others, whether they’re giving a presentation, walking in the middle of a large crowd, or engaging in another social situation. 
  2. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): PTSD is another form of anxiety, though many don’t recognize it as such. This condition can develop after someone experiences a traumatic event and they don’t properly confront the emotions that follow. 
  3. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD): OCD is characterized by repetitive thoughts and compulsive behaviors.Commonly, people with OCD feel compelled to clean or organize. They also perform certain behaviors multiple times, like locking a door or making sure the oven is turned off.
  4. Panic disorder: This is another form of anxiety, which is characterized by the occurrence of panic attacks. Panic attacks are, unfortunately, often mistaken for heart attacks. Those with panic disorder often feel like they have completely lost control.

Do you think that you may have GAD, social phobia, PTSD, OCD, panic disorder, or another form of anxiety? If you are experiencing symptoms, we ask that you consider talking to a mental health professional. We know that this can feel scary, but it will ultimately help you take better care of your mental health and get back to living a life that you enjoy.
