Psychotherapy for Anxiety
Do you feel anxiety in situations that are safe and shouldn’t be anxiety provoking?
Does it feel like you always have an underlying degree of anxiety?
When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective long-term option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms of the problem.
Often, these are the symptoms of anxiety:
- 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
- Obsessions about certain ideas, a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Anxiety surrounding a particular life event or experience that has occurred in the past, a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder
Therapy can help to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears and look at situations in a new, less frightening way.
