Therapy for Anxiety

Women are twice as vulnerable to anxiety as men and anxiety is a common symptom of premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, perimenopause and menopause. Symptoms of anxiety can range from worry and fears about what might happen at work or in relationships to full blown panic attacks in which a woman feels she is having a heart attack. When your anxiety is keeping you from living your life to its fullest, it’s time to seek help. Anxiety is a very treatable disorder, but it can also grow worse and become more entrenched if left untreated.

Types of anxiety disorders include Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Social Anxiety. Anxiety can lead to avoidance of the things that used to be a regular part of our lives – often leading to isolation and withdrawal in order to avoid becoming anxious

Don’t let anxiety control your life. You can regain control and take back your regular routines and peace of mind. It takes work and courage, but cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness have been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of anxiety disorders.

Mindfulness

Practicing Mindfulness

Do you spend much of your time thinking about the future or the past while the present slips by? Do you focus your thoughts on regrets about the past, fears about the future or criticism of yourself or your
current situation?

Mindfulness Practice May Help

Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present and accepting of one’s thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations moment to moment. It is helpful in the treatment of anxiety and many other mental health issues. Through practice, one can learn to simply observe their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgmental manner – neither judging or trying to change the way things are. Mindfulness can help us to put things in perspective, to become more accepting and grateful of our life circumstances and to operate from a place of wisdom rather than fear. Mindfulness is not part of any specific religion and can be helpful to persons from any religious or spiritual background.

Mindfulness skills can be helpful for those that are seeking a decrease in worry, anxiety or irritability or who desire a better relationship with themselves and those around them.

Quieting the mind can lead to increased confidence, calmer moods, decreased anxiety and improved coping skills.
