Free Yourself From Your Anxious Thoughts With Anxiety Treatment
In safe and compassionate anxiety treatment sessions, your Personal Growth Counseling therapist can help you identify the source of your anxiety. Together we can determine if it is genetic, hormonal or a reaction to your experiences. If your therapist suspects that your anxiety may be rooted in a hormonal imbalance, he or she will refer to your primary care doctor to run further tests. Once the root source of your anxiety is determined, you and your therapist can work together to understand the triggers to your anxiety and explore and address the situations or specific thoughts that make you feel the most worried.
No matter the source of your anxiety or its triggers, your therapist will create an individualized plan. That plan will include tailor-made strategies and techniques that can not only relieve you of your symptoms, but also teach you lifelong skills that can help you combat future anxious moments.
One of the most effective techniques you can use to mitigate anxiety is mindfulness. Your therapist will guide you through the process of practicing mindfulness, which incorporates deep breathing exercises, often in combination with essential oils and theta music. Mindfulness practices can help you feel more present, grounded and calm during your sessions and in your life.
If you struggle with social anxiety, your therapist can teach you useful interpersonal communication skills to help you get through even the most stressful interactions. In addition, if your feelings of worry revolve around your own self-image, your therapist will work with you to help you start thinking more positively about yourself. A lot of anxiety is rooted in automatic negative thoughts, with which your mind jumps to the worst possible scenario. Your therapist can help you analyze your thought process, so you can start modifying the way you view certain situations.
