Types of Anxiety Therapy
There are multiple ways to approach anxiety treatment, including:
- CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) – CBT is effective in treating both generalized anxiety and OCD. CBT focuses on helping individuals identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to their emotional and psychological distress.
- EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) − EDMR is best for trauma-induced anxiety. Rather than challenging and changing thoughts, EMDR therapy for anxiety involves processing anxiety-related memories using physical movements. These movements can help us to reprocess troubling memories.
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) − a mindfulness-based intervention. It was developed to treat social anxiety disorder. Like PTSD, the goal of ACT therapy is not to change negative thoughts, but to focus on accepting them without believing them or fighting them.
- Exposure therapy – highly effective for treating phobias and agoraphobia. It involves gradually facing fears while using relaxation techniques, like systematic desensitization, where we start with imagining the fear-inducing situation and then work towards confronting it step by step.
Some types of therapy are more effective for different people and different types of anxieties. Our team is here to help you find the right fit.
