What Is Anxiety?

Most of us will encounter situations that make us feel uneasy or worried about the future. For someone with anxiety, however, these situations happen frequently and can significantly interfere with everyday life or relationships. The stress and fear may never entirely go away, or they may lead to avoidance behaviors in an attempt to control the feelings. Anxiety disorders are very common and are categorized into several major types, such as phobias, panic disorder, social anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder. If you have anxiety, everyday situations can trigger immense amounts of stress. 

Anxiety presents with several key physical and mental symptoms, which often include: 

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Feelings of panic
  • Uncontrollable worry
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Irritated 

Occasional nervousness or worry is normal, particularly when you are going through a difficult time in your life. When it persists for longer than is necessary, your symptoms may point toward an anxiety disorder. Anxiety can be caused by many different factors and life experiences, such as due to trauma. No matter the exact reason you have anxiety, therapy plays an important role in managing your emotions and overcoming negative thought patterns. 

How Does Therapy help?

It’s easy to feel stuck or trapped when you have anxiety. The fear can be so overwhelming that you are left frozen. But know that through therapy, you can break out of the mold and move towards a brighter future. If you have anxiety, a therapist can help you learn to ground yourself and cope with your feelings. Therapy is also a place to explore your long-term goals and create effective plans to achieve them.  

At Counseling Works, our therapists are trained to treat anxiety using proven methods. We deliver dependable solutions that work in the long term as well as treat immediate feelings. Since everyone is different, our therapists approach each patient with their individual situation in mind. We will ask questions and have you try various cognitive behavioral exercises to increase awareness of your own anxiety and discover what’s effective in managing it. Deep breathing exercises, getting enough sleep and maintaining a support network are also often helpful. 

The benefits of therapy include: 

  • Determine the root cause of your fears and worries
  • Develop problem-solving skills
  • Challenge negative thought patterns that contribute to anxiety
  • Understand why you react in certain situations that cause you anxiety
  • Identify when your thoughts are irrational or disproportionate to the actual situation
