What is the treatment for anxiety?
Therapists at Therapy Unlocked treat anxiety disorders with a variety of these approaches and more:
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) – It aims to help people change the way they think and behave in order to reduce feelings of anxiety.
Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) – A mindfulness based therapy that helps you work on staying focused on the moment and accept feelings and thoughts without judgment.
Eye Movement Desensitization Repossessing (EMDR) – This therapy approach uses a technique that involves ‘bilateral stimulation’ to free you from emotional pain from disturbing memories that may be triggering your anxiety.
Medication Management – Medications such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and benzodiazepines are commonly used to treat anxiety disorders, although the choice of medication will depend on the specific condition and the individual person.
It is important to note that everyone experiences anxiety differently and not everyone who experiences anxiety has an anxiety disorder. Sometimes it can be a normal response to stress, but if it begins to interfere with daily life, reach out to us at Therapy Unlocked to set up an appointment.
