Anxiety is when you feel nervous, fearful, apprehensive, and/or worrisome. This condition affects your feelings and behaviors. Feelings range from vague and unsettling to causing a serious impact to your daily life.
This becomes a big problem when symptoms interfere with your sleep or daily function. Anxiety may cause a reaction that is out of proportion with what's expected in a given situation.
At Motivations Counseling we provide support and empathy so you feel safe. You need to be comfortable expressing your feelings and emotions. Your therapist will be there to reassure and guide throughout this self-exploration process.
In this case, one of the goals of psychotherapy will be to identify and address the source of your anxiety. First, we focus on your symptoms to determine the proper treatment plan.
The most used approach to treat anxiety is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). We have used this therapy approach to help other clients combat their depression. Together, through CBT, we will learn how your thoughts may be affecting your behaviors. We believe that our negative thoughts can lead to unwarranted feelings and inappropriate actions. By focusing on your thought processes, we can identify changes to improve your life.
Hence, your therapist will establish a treatment plan custom-made to your particular needs. This plan may include meditation, relaxation, exercise, therapy, and/or reducing the use of stimulants. Our goal is to identify the source and reduce or end the stressors that exacerbate the condition.
We will help replace fearful self talk with positive, realistic and empowering self talk. We also explore various calming/relaxation methods to help you manage stress levels.
