Anxiety is a common feeling every human being experiences at some point in their life. Most of the time, as a normal emotion, it can be managed and goes away when the reason for such feeling disappears. However, when the feeling persists and becomes difficult to control, anxiety can be crippling.
In this case, anxiety is not just a feeling you brush off or avoid. You need to consult an expert or anxiety therapist to address your struggle.

When you come to Therapy and Co. for anxiety therapy, we will match you with an experienced anxiety therapist who you can trust and be comfortable with.

People from all walks of life get affected by anxiety at some point. However, the degree of these experiences may vary from person to person. It can be tolerable to some, while it can be crippling and extremely difficult to manage for others.
This is why it is important to consult an expert to address your struggle with anxiety.
At Therapy and Co, we look into your condition and use evidence-based practices in our therapeutic approach including, EMDR, CBT, and Virtual Reality therapies.
Anxiety is the mind and body's reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unfamiliar situations. While anxiety is experienced differently, it usually impacts our daily lives and can have a dramatic effect on our quality of life and self-esteem.
While they may appear or feel the same, there are different forms of anxiety. These include: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, and Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia). As you will be assessed, our experienced anxiety therapists will identify what form of anxiety you are experiencing and how to approach it.
Our goal here at Therapy and Co is to release anxiety by first working with symptom relief. When anxiety symptoms are alleviated, clients can quickly gain a sense of control and a feeling of hope.
Our therapists will then explore the underlying basis of anxiety. We have found that a much stronger sense of internal control and self-esteem is most often produced as a result of anxiety therapy.
Anxiety can present itself with different symptoms. These symptoms may vary from person to person. Some may only experience a few of these symptoms while others can experience all of them.
A person with an anxiety disorder may experience mood swings. Mood swings refer to abrupt changes in emotions or reactions and are typically caused by stress hormones.
When you suffer from anxiety, you may also notice a change in your behavior. This may include restlessness, isolation, or irritability.
Anxiety can also cause sleep issues such as sleep-deprivation or insomnia. Because anxiety heightens fear and worry, it becomes more difficult for your body to relax and get the rest that it deserves.
According to studies, anxiety is linked to cognitive problems. Information becomes slower to process, and memory becomes weaker as well.
Besides symptoms showing through your mood, behavior, sleep, and cognitive performance, anxiety also manifests through your physical state as well. When you have anxiety, you may experience dizziness, fatigue, palpitations, shortness of breath, excessive sweating, and even trembling.
It is important to remember that while one can experience some of these symptoms at one time or another, it does not necessarily mean you have anxiety. To be sure about the cause of your symptoms, contact us at Therapy and Co and to talk to an experienced anxiety therapist.
There are multiple anxiety therapy treatments that will help you manage your anxiety. Because everybody has different needs, our anxiety therapist here at Therapy and Co will determine which anxiety therapy treatment best suits you.
Virtual reality therapy treatment uses technology to simulate events or environments in such a way that they appear real to the patient. This is especially helpful to treat mental disorders, including social anxiety, phobias and panic attacks, because it exposes the patient to their anxiety triggers. This is a good treatment option when it is difficult to physically recreate experiences or environments inside the therapist’s office.
CBT is a combination of cognitive and behavioral therapy. With this treatment, you will learn how to identify the thoughts that cause or trigger your anxiety and how to replace these triggers with more realistic thoughts.
Additionally, through behavioral therapy, your anxiety therapist will teach you methods to reduce anxiety-induced behavior.
Exposure therapy is commonly used to treat social anxiety, phobias, and even PTSD. With this treatment, patients are gradually exposed to their anxiety triggers to reduce fear.
ACT is an anxiety therapy treatment that focuses on your values and goals and the activities you can do to commit to them.
During this therapy treatment, your therapist will help you accept your anxiety and understand how your thoughts can affect what you feel, experience, and do.
When memories or certain images trigger anxiety, the EMDR therapy treatment can be helpful. During an EMDR session, your anxiety therapist will teach you relaxation techniques and methods to reprocess or make the memories or images less impactful to you.
Interpersonal therapy or IPT focuses on your social interactions. During IPT treatments, your therapist will help you recognize interpersonal issues and learn how to improve your interpersonal functioning.
Our trained and experienced therapists here at Therapy and Co will assess you and determine which of these evidence-based anxiety therapy treatments suits you and your needs best.
When anxiety becomes overwhelming such that a person experiencing it becomes crippled by the emotion, it can be called an anxiety disorder.
However, there are different types of anxiety. Here are 8 major types of anxiety you should know:
Stress is the most common factor for anxiety. Whether caused by an external or internal trigger, when left unmanaged, stress can cause physical illnesses, anxiety, and even depression.
When you have generalized anxiety or GAD, you may experience excessive worrying that you find difficult to control or manage. This persistent worry may affect your ability to think clearly or act properly.
During anxiety or panic attacks, you may experience intense or overwhelming worry or panic. Physical symptoms may also be on display such as the feeling of going crazy, hyperventilation, shortness of breath, chest pain, and even shaking, among others.
This type of anxiety is felt when you have an irrational fear of being judged or humiliated in public. Some people with social anxiety would even prefer isolation to avoid being with other people.
Post-traumatic stress may occur after you experience a traumatic event. During episodes of PTSD, you may re-imagine the trauma as if you are experiencing it for the first time. As a result, this causes intense stress and anxiety.
A terrible experience or a trauma can cause lifelong consequences. Some people barely recover from it, making them more prone to anxiety disorders.
When you have OCD, you may experience unwanted thoughts or behavior that you cannot control. It might be a recurring thought you must entertain or a simple action you need to do. Failure to do these obsessions and compulsions will result in restlessness or extreme anxiety.
Phobias are irrational fears and in reality present no real trouble. Common phobias include fear of snakes, heights, enclosed spaces, the dark, or even driving. These irrational fears in specific objects or situations can cause intense anxiety.
It is perfectly normal to worry sometimes, especially when there's a clear reason to be bothered. However, when the worry becomes persistent and gets in the way of your normal life, it's time to get checked by a trained and experienced anxiety therapist.
