What is Anxiety?

We all experience anxiety. Anxiety is our body’s natural response to stress. Biologically, it’s meant to put us in a heightened sense of awareness so we’re prepared for potential threats in specific situations. When anxiety begins to arise regularly in the absence of an actual threat, it can have a negative effect on our physical health, our mood, emotional wellbeing, and even our relationships with others.

The mind-body connection is never more obvious than when we’re caught up in a state of anxiety—fearful thoughts prompt a biochemical response in the body (racing heart, shallow breath, dry mouth), and the mind interprets these physical symptoms as further evidence of something being “wrong.” 

Essentially, anxiety is a warning sign that you’re about to do something you may not want to. Our goal shouldn’t be to dismiss it entirely—just to make it a healthy, manageable part of our lives. Occasionally, anxiety can trigger panic attacks, especially when linked with a stress disorder or panic disorder. We work with you to treat your anxiety and depression with holistic counseling with a licensed professional. 

Symptoms of Anxiety

There are a number of different kinds of anxiety, including generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety, and much more. Our mental health professionals understand that your anxiety is real – it’s not just all in your head – and they will work with you to find solutions.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns in America. It’s also one of the hardest medical conditions to speak openly about. Every person with anxiety will experience it differently, but there are many symptoms that people may share. Some of these symptoms include feeling a sense of dread, being too afraid to do things alone or with other people, fear for your physical safety, and even fear for your own life. The most common symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Excessive worrying
  • Restlessness
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Nightmares
  • Panic or fear
  • Feeling nervous
  • Heart palpitations or racing heart
  • Impaired concentration
  • Irritability or anger

What to expect from Anxiety Counseling

Anxiety counseling is a collaborative process, where the therapist and client work together to identify specific concerns and develop concrete skills and techniques for coping with anxiety. Clients can expect to practice their new skills outside of sessions to manage anxiety in situations that might make them uncomfortable. Therapy may be short- or long-term depending on the severity of symptoms.

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health concerns in the world. It can be difficult to talk about for many people, but there are treatments that can help you feel better and live a fulfilling life. For those who have anxiety, it may seem like everything is too much or out of control. Anxiety Counseling helps teach you skills for how to cope with this feeling and understand what triggers your anxiety. You’ll learn more about yourself as well as how to manage your symptoms through therapy sessions and other resources. 

Who is Anxiety Therapy for?

HWP provides anxiety counseling services to young adults and adults. Anxiety therapy is for anyone who feels stressed, uneasy or uncomfortable in their own skin. It’s for those who know they have anxiety and want to take back control of it. It’s for the people who feel like they are living with a constant sense of unease and don’t know where to turn or what to do about it. 

If you suffer from anxiety, there is no need to feel alone. Anxiety can strike at any time and for many people, it becomes a way of life that they do not know how to manage. It might seem like your world has been turned upside down and you are all alone in the battle against anxiety but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are so many resources available for those who have trouble with managing their anxiety and one of these resources is counseling.

Anxiety Therapy Focus Areas

During our therapy sessions we will explore the following areas, and more in order to get you on track for becoming your calmest self: 

  • What triggers your anxiety? 
  • How does it feel when you’re struggling with anxiety? 
  • What are some coping skills that help manage your symptoms?

Can Anxiety Therapy Help You?

There are many misconceptions about what anxiety is and how it can be treated. The reality is that more people experience symptoms of anxiety than you might think, yet only a small percentage seek help for the issue.

The truth is that there’s no need to suffer through your worries alone! With professional Anxiety Counseling, you’ll learn skills to manage your stress and worry while also building confidence in yourself. You will learn how to identify the triggers for your anxiety, understand why it happens and develop effective coping strategies so that you can feel better now – not just after treatment ends.
