Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

Kailen is a hairstylist who loves to help her clients feel more confident in themselves. She spends all day jumping from one client to the next and often feels overwhelmed with the amount of social interaction she has. Although she loves what she does for a living, the pressure of having to talk to people all day starts to wear her down. She also has a hard time making friends and will spend her free time at home or with the select people she doesn’t feel intimidated by. She wishes that she didn’t feel so anxious when having to talk to or meet new people. It would help with her career and going out to meet new people.

I have anxiety. And I’m treating my anxiety. I’m on medication for my anxiety. Why am I saying this? Because it’s a completely normal thing. More and more people should talk openly about it. –Anushka Sharma

Thriveworks Troy Counseling has anxiety therapists who can help you identify and overcome the feelings you have brought on by anxiety.

Do I Have Anxiety? Signs and Symptoms

Some people suffer from anxiety daily, while others experience it every now and then when they have a trigger cause it. Anxiety can make us feel a variety of different ways. In some cases, like Kailen, you may feel overwhelmed and tired. Here is a more complete list of signs and symptoms of anxiety:

  • Fatigue
  • Racing, uncontrollable thoughts
  • Excessive, uncontrollable worry
  • Irritability
  • Excessive sweating
  • Insomnia or other sleep issues
  • Trembling
  • Tightness in your chest
  • Difficulty focusing

Some people may face only a few of these symptoms while others face most, if not all. These feelings can make you worrisome, in turn making your anxiety even worse. If you feel anxious on a daily basis or every now and then, you should talk to a professional about it. Anxiety therapists have the training and experience needed to appropriately help you cope with your thoughts. Our providers at Thriveworks Troy want to help you understand your triggers, how to manage your symptoms, and overall live a happier and healthier life.

5 Types of Common Anxiety Disorders

Although you may not feel anxious in the same way as Kailen when it comes to talking to people or being in a room full of chatter, you maybe can relate to the way she felt. Kailen suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder. This is just one of the few types of categories your anxiety could be in. The five common anxiety disorders explained are:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder: This disorder is the most diverse and usually causes those who suffer from it to experience symptoms by everyday worry. This could be anything from running late, booking a flight, remembering everything at the grocery store, or completing your work on time. Those with this disorder might feel anxious even when there is no apparent cause or trigger. You might feel anxious even just watching TV.
  2. Social Anxiety Disorder: This is what Kailen feels. Social Anxiety Disorder is characterized by anxiety induced in social situations. People with this disorder might feel anxious in all social situations, such as saying hello in an elevator or attending a social gathering, or in specific cases like meeting someone for the first time.
  3. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is characterized by anxiety rooted in trauma. If you suffer from PTSD, your anxiety could be set off by specific triggers linked back to your trauma. Traumatic events include physical assault, emotional abuse, natural disaster, or serving in the military.
  4. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is described as recurrent, unwanted thoughts or actions that someone cannot avoid. This may include checking to make sure the front door is locked several times, counting numbers before you fall asleep, or wiping down your countertops until you feel they are as clean as they can get.
  5. Panic Disorder: Panic Disorder is characterized by intense fear accompanied by physical symptoms such as shortness of breath or a racing heart. If you have a panic attack induced by your disorder, you may mistake it for a heart attack, in turn making your anxiety worse.

No matter which disorder you suffer from, the anxiety therapists at Thriveworks Troy Counseling can help you deal with your thoughts and feelings while also providing you with the tools to manage these symptoms when you are on your own.
