How Anxiety Therapy Works

 

The good news is that anxiety is treatable, and our award-winning therapists and counselors are here to help. 

When considering anxiety therapy, you might wonder about the different techniques that we use here at The Life Guidance Center. One of the most common treatments for anxiety is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT. 

This method gives a patient the tools to change their behaviors, thereby influencing or adjusting their thoughts. Thought replacement, meditation, and guided imagery are a few of the techniques used during CBT. When the patient’s negative thought and behavior patterns are changed, then they will experience less anxiety.

While CBT is the most common method of anxiety therapy, our professionals also use Insight-oriented Psychotherapy. This process helps patients gain insight about their anxiety’s roots and patterns. As the patient grows in awareness, they may learn to intervene in negative thought patterns before their occurrence. This technique helps keep the patient from spinning out in a negative cycle and allows them to stay in their current reality.
