What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a common mental health condition that can significantly impact an individual’s daily life. It can manifest in various forms, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and phobias, among others. Anxiety treatment is essential for those who experience frequent, intense, and/or prolonged episodes of anxiety that interfere with their ability to function in daily life.

Anxiety Treatment Options

Anxiety treatment options include therapy, self-care strategies, and in some cases, medication. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based CBT are among the most effective forms of therapy for anxiety. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps clients to learn how their thoughts, feelings and behaviors are linked to create new, healthier patterns of thinking.  Mindfulness Based CBT brings together traditional CBT and mindful based skills to interrupt repeating patterns of thinking, decrease cycles of negative emotions and teach new skills to regulation emotions.

In addition to therapy, self-care strategies such as regular exercise, proper nutrition, and sufficient sleep can also help to alleviate anxiety symptoms. It’s important to work with a qualified healthcare professional to determine the most appropriate anxiety treatment plan for your specific needs and goals.

Types of Therapy

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT): This type of therapy focuses on identifying and changing negative thinking patterns and behaviors that contribute to anxiety.


  • Exposure therapy: This involves gradually exposing the person to the source of their fear or anxiety in a controlled and safe environment, which can help reduce their fear over time.


  • Mindfulness-based therapy: This type of therapy involves teaching the person to focus their attention on the present moment and become more aware of their thoughts and feelings, which can help reduce anxiety.


  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT): This therapy focuses on teaching the person to accept their anxiety and develop a commitment to taking actions that align with their values, even in the presence of anxiety.


  • Medication: Some people with anxiety disorders benefit from taking medications, such as antidepressants, benzodiazepines, or beta-blockers, under the supervision of a doctor.

It’s important to keep in mind that what works best for one person may not work for another.
