Anxiety Therapy in Tampa Florida & Brandon Florida
Whether you’re suffering from panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, unrelenting worries, or an incapacitating phobia, it’s important to know that you don’t have to live with anxiety and fear. Anxiety therapy at Star point Counseling Center in Tampa Fl. & Brandon Fl. can help, and for many anxiety problems, therapy is often the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy—unlike medication treats more than just the symptoms of the problem. Therapy can help you uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears; learn how to relax; look at situations in new, less frightening ways; and develop better coping and problem solving skills. Therapy gives you the tools to overcome anxiety and teaches you how to use them.
Anxiety Disorders differ considerably, so anxiety therapy should be tailored to your specific symptoms and diagnosis. If you have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), for example, your treatment will be different from someone who needs help for anxiety attacks. The length of therapy will also depend on the type and severity of your anxiety disorder. However, many anxiety therapies are relatively short-term. According to the American Psychological Association, many people improve significantly within 15to 20 anxiety therapy sessions.
While many different types of therapy are used to treat anxiety, the leading approaches are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure therapy. Each anxiety therapy may be used alone, or combined with other types of therapy. Anxiety therapy may be conducted individually in person or virtual therapy. But the goal is the same: to lower your anxiety levels, calm your mind, and overcome your fears. Call or text us at 813-244-1251 to schedule an appointment to see one of our anxiety therapists.
