What Is Anxiety Therapy

Anxiety therapy is a form of psychotherapy that aims to help individuals manage and reduce their anxiety symptoms. This type of therapy can help people understand the root causes of their anxiety, identify triggers, and develop coping strategies to deal with stressful situations.

It often involves cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which works to change negative thought patterns that lead to anxious feelings, and exposure therapy, which gradually exposes individuals to anxiety-provoking situations in a safe and controlled environment to help them overcome their fears. The goal of anxiety therapy is not to eliminate anxiety completely, but to help individuals manage their symptoms effectively so they can lead fulfilling and productive lives.

Overview Of Anxiety

Anxiety is a psychological and physiological state characterized by feelings of tension, worry, and physical changes like increased blood pressure. It’s a natural response to stress or perceived danger, serving as an alarm system to prepare us for potential threats.

However, when anxiety becomes persistent, excessive, and disproportionate to the situation, it may be classified as an anxiety disorder. This could interfere with daily activities and well-being, often manifesting in symptoms such as restlessness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, irritability, sleep disturbances, and muscle tension.

It’s important to note that anxiety is a broad term that encompasses various specific conditions, including panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and many others. It is also important to know that 5.2% of Canadians over the age of 15 are diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder.
