Starting Anxiety therapy

What is anxiety therapy?

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

We all deal with anxiety at some point in our lives but sometimes those feelings can become too much to bear. They can impede our productivity, affect our sleep, and get in the way of our ability to function on a day-to-day basis. They can reduce our happiness and can even cause physical health issues.

Some people are reluctant to seek therapy for their anxiety. Maybe they think their problem is mild enough that they can “stick it out” without the help of a professional. Maybe their anxiety makes it difficult to commit to in-person therapy appointments. But without the proper care, anxiety disorders — both mild and severe — can cause unnecessary suffering for those who experience them.

Though mental illnesses can feel isolating, you’re far from alone in struggling with anxiety. Countless people every single year turn to therapy to get the care they need. Even Oprah Winfrey — cool, calm, and collected on camera — has suffered such severe anxiety that she nearly had a nervous breakdown. Like millions of Americans, Winfrey turned to anxiety counseling to help her maintain her momentum as a TV personality icon.

If you have been struggling with your mental health for quite some time now, consider leveraging our anxiety counseling services at Thriveworks in Vallejo, CA. Our licensed mental health professionals use innovative, customized methods to improve your mental health so you can live a happy, productive life.

Anxiety Symptoms To Watch Out For

Nearly everyone experiences anxiety at some point. But there are several anxiety symptoms that will let you know things may be getting out of hand. They include:

  • Constant worrying
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Ongoing exhaustion
  • Feeling tense and agitated
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Heart palpitations
  • Excessive sweating
  • Experiencing thoughts of doom
  • Difficulty completing projects
  • Panic attacks

People with anxiety may feel like they are ready to snap at any given moment. They may feel like they’re struggling to even catch a few hours of sleep, which can lead to more serious physical symptoms.

If you’re struggling with anxiety, Thriveworks in Vallejo, CA has licensed counselors and therapists who are trained to help.

What To Expect From Anxiety Counseling

Counselors and therapists use innovative methods to help you reduce your symptoms so you can bring health, happiness, and stability back into your life.

Some of those methods include:

  • Exposure therapy: Under a therapist’s guidance, you’ll be exposed to a particular phobia or fear slowly and safely so you can work through your anxiety and reduce symptoms.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): This type of therapy teaches you coping skills and helps you form new habits to better regulate your emotions.
  • Acceptance therapy: Often, feelings of anxiety stem from an inability to accept one’s self. Acceptance therapy teaches people with anxiety how to become more comfortable with who they are so they can live a life without painful self-judgments.
  • Talk therapy: Talk therapy allows you to work through your fears with a trained professional so you can figure out what’s behind them and how to leave them behind. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) are two popular forms of talk therapy.
  • Art therapy: Art therapy encourages clients to explore their emotions and develop self-awareness through artistic endeavors. This can be profoundly effective, especially for people who have trouble expressing their feelings in other ways.

In addition, clients may also learn relaxation techniques or coping mechanisms to help reduce anxiety symptoms in a meaningful way. If you’re ready to see what anxiety counseling can do for you, click our booking widget or give us a call to set up an appointment.
