Anxiety

 

Anxiety can range in severity and circumstance, with the most common forms of anxiety being generalized anxiety, panic attacks/panic disorder, and social anxiety. Other forms of anxiety can also include agoraphobia, which is a fear of being trapped or embarrassed somewhere or specific phobias, such as fears of insects or needles.

 

Generally, anxiety includes feelings of nervousness, excessive worry, or stress. It can also include fears of being in social settings, which would be the case for social anxiety or sudden and intense feelings of panic, which would be the case with individuals suffering from panic attacks/panic disorder.

Treatment for anxiety begins by identifying the root causes for the anxiety through an exploration of the past and present. This exploration helps to build trust and works towards identifying possible solutions that may have worked in the past or currently have been helping.

 

Therapy would further include an introduction to structured approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical-behavioral therapy, or acceptance and commitment therapy. These approaches help to identify thought patterns that may be limiting you and leading you to experience anxiety and work towards changing/adjusting them.
