TREATMENT FOR ANXIETY

Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress.   It helps people deal with a tense situation in the office or to study harder for an exam.   But when anxiety becomes excessive, and you develop an irrational dread of everyday situations, it has become a disabling disorder.

Signs and symptoms of anxiety disorders:

  • Feelings of apprehension or dread

  • Anticipating the worst

  • Feeling tense and jumpy

  • Irritability

 

Physical symptoms:

  • Pounding heart

  • Sweating

  • Headaches

  • Stomach upset

  • Frequent urination or diarrhea

  • Shortness of breath

  • Insomnia

 

A panic attack is the abrupt onset of intense fear or discomfort that reaches a peak within minutes, and could include accelerated heart rate, pounding heart, sweating, or shortness of breath.

How therapy can help anxiety:

Therapy can help people learn to identify and manage factors that contribute to their anxiety.   A Psychotherapist will work with you to determine the cause of your anxiety and create a course of treatment that may include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure Therapy, or Meditation/Mindfulness.
