Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety symptoms are more common than you think. If you are reading this then you are wondering if you could benefit from anxiety treatment. Since you have already run a google search and come across this page, odds are the answer is yes. To be sure that anxiety is the culprit here, let’s go over various symptoms. With new information at hand, you will be better equipped to make an important decision regarding seeking professional help for yourself. 


Fear is the layman’s term for anxiety whereas anxiety is more of a clinical term for medical and mental health professionals. They both mean the same thing. A sense of fear to the point of discomfort. Anxiety shows up when we think about the future. It stems from having a lack of confidence in a particular outcome. You fear your ability to avoid an unwanted outcome. Anxiety is a normal human reaction and feeling a sense of fear weekly is not abnormal. The purpose of this emotion is to keep us alive. Humans are inherently fearful of things or situations that are life-threatening. The issue is when the fear response happens frequently over things that are not life-threatening. This is when people begin to use the word anxiety more frequently. Anxiety treatment would reduce how intense these sensations are.

Anxiety Treatment for Worrying

Anxiety treatment can reduce constant worrying. In the previous paragraph, I mentioned that anxiety or fear is a normal human reaction. This still holds true with the exception of frequency. If you notice you feel anxious or have uncontrollable worry nearly constantly, this is a sign of disruptive anxiety. The constant worry is not only mentally and emotionally disruptive, but also has physical side effects of which I will discuss later in this post. The reason why the constant worry is something I state as disruptive is that it is difficult to focus on other things. When you constantly worry about various things you leave little mental space for anything else in life. Things like joy, laughter, and happiness seem to be to elude you. The less you worry the more room you have for other thoughts and feelings. A lack of joy can lead to depression which is why seeking professional help for anxiety is important to consider. 

Concentration Problems

Due to the interruptive nature of anxiety symptoms, you may experience problems in your concentration. Anxiety treatment will resolve your inability to focus. This is because your anxiety is looking for a threat to handle. Since dealing with threats is more important to your overall safety, less important thoughts or tasks get pushed aside. This is more often noticed when you are learning something new. For example, you are in a new job learning your new position. Instead of focusing on learning your role, you fear what people think of you and become distracted. You then feel you are not learning fast enough and now fear being let go for being unable to learn or for being a slow learner. The truth is you are not slow, you are simply distracted by your emotions. 

Being on Edge

Attached with the constant anxiety is being on edge. You respond as if anything can go wrong at any time. This frequent fear can lead you to be guarded more often than not. If you are trying to protect yourself constantly, you become on edge. This leads to another anxiety symptom in men, irritability. Being on edge is exhausting both physically and mentally. It’s like always operating without enough sleep and you become generally irritable. You being more irritable often leads to your social life becoming unhealthy. When you are on edge most of the time, it becomes challenging to stay calm when things do not work out in your favor. So you fight with people in your social circle more often. The increase in arguments leads to more fear. You become more fearful of fighting with others which can lead to social isolation.

My Approach To Anxiety Treatment

I will teach you how to identify your triggers to better prepare yourself. You’ll learn grounding and breathing techniques to save you from having another panic attack.

I’ll provide psychoeducation regarding your anxious brain so you can manipulate how you respond to stressful situtations.

Life After Counseling

After you receive anxiety treatment, imagine having confidence in every decision you make and every step you take. Think of not repeatedly second-guessing yourself and fearing all your self-doubts are true. Imagine not having uncontrollable worry throughout the day. Think of coming to a decision faster as you won’t be doing mental gymnastics between several options. You can feel less on edge and be less irritable which will leave more room to relax and enjoy your life. Picture having more focus since your anxious thoughts will not be interrupting you making learning and completing tasks a more pleasurable and quicker process.
