Therapy for Anxiety
Anxiety… it feels like a constant at this point. There’s that pit in your stomach or tension that never seems to go away. Your heart starts racing every time you remember one more task to add to the to-do list that already seems never ending. Worry doesn’t seem to capture how anxiety really feels for you. It can seem like it’s taking over your life and you can’t control it no matter how hard you try.
Other symptoms of anxiety can include:
• Nervousness, restlessness or being tense
• Feelings of danger, panic or dread
• Rapid breathing or hyperventilation
• Increased or heavy sweating
• Trembling or muscle twitching
• Weakness or lethargy
• Difficulty focusing or thinking clearly about anything other than the thing you’re worried about
• Panic attacks
• Digestive issues
• Obsessions about certain ideas
In moderate amounts, anxiety can be helpful. It can help us focus a bit better, give us that push to finish that project, or go over the notes for that presentation one more time. Because of this, there might be a part of you that thinks without the anxiety you wouldn’t accomplish anything. The issue is that there is not just a little anxiety, there is a ton of it. You’re exhausted and it’s starting to interfere with your life, your relationships, and your happiness.
How nice would it feel to live free of the fear of failing, of disappointing someone, or of never being good enough?
When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.
In therapy we can uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, learn how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.
