"Anxiety therapy is about helping you get the most out of life"
Anxiety therapy can make life easier because it helps you understand anxiety triggers while learning coping skills and tools to manage anxiety.
If anxiety is interfering with your daily life then its time to seek treatment.
Anxiety is often associated with intrusive thoughts of worry that trigger a stress response in the body which can feel draining. It may be affecting your sleep, health, relationships, work, or keeping you from doing things you wish you could. Calm doesn’t have to be out of reach and you deserve to get help.
We all have different life experiences with various sources of anxiety however, these are some of the common symptoms:
- Excessive Worry
- Unable To Stop Worrying
- Feeling On Edge
- Physical Tension
- Muscle Aches
- Gastrointestinal Issues
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Difficulty Concentrating
Anxiety Counseling Treatment
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can help because it shows us how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected, creating a revolving cycle.
Other Anxiety Counseling approaches may include mindfulness practices and Exposure Therapy to allow for gentle gradual exposure to sources of anxiety. Exposure therapy aims at a person's avoidance of triggers that causes an anxious arousal response in our bodies. In other words, facing those things that produce anxiety can help treat it. I consider myself to be an eclectic therapist and utilize different treatment modalities to support treatment progress.
Anxiety Treatment Goals
So why are Anxiety treatment goals important?
Think about planning a trip down the pacific coast highway in sunny California with your favorite calming beach destination in mind. Of course, the goal is to get to your beach destination. But first, you need to plan. What will you need for your road trip? How will you navigate there? It is the same with counseling. In order to meet your goal to find relief from anxiety, a personalized plan should be created for anxiety treatment to work.
