Do you constantly feel on edge, or like you cannot control your worrying? You may be one of the estimated 40 million people in the United States with an anxiety disorder. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you have so much that worries you, but know that you can take steps forward. When anxiety holds you back, it may be time to try anxiety therapy. Burr Ridge therapists at Life Insight provide compassionate support. If you’re ready to start your journey, call our office today to book an appointment.
Anxiety is a physiological reaction to a threat that causes a range of physical and emotional symptoms. A person with anxiety may feel ongoing, intense nervousness, as well as physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling and muscle tension. In a healthy person, these symptoms reside once the threat has passed: in someone with an anxiety disorder, however, they persist and impact his or her life.
Even though people may no longer face immediate danger from wild animals like our ancestors, the human brain doesn’t distinguish between actual and perceived threats. As a result, anything we consider stressful is interpreted as dangerous: a heavy workload, relationship problems and even everyday situations. Anxiety can be beneficial in small amounts: for instance, the nerves we get before a speech, job interview or test can motivate us to work hard. However, when it reaches a point where a person feels overwhelmed or frozen, therapy is recommended to improve your quality of life.
The goal of therapy is to identify the underlying causes of your anxiety and build an effective coping strategy to help you deal with your symptoms in your day-to-day life. Our approach is to focus on each client independently since your experiences are unlike anyone else’s. As a result, we can successfully help patients achieve their goals through regular therapy sessions:
Anxiety cannot be cured: after all, it’s an integral part of our survival. We need to feel fear at times to protect ourselves. What therapy can do is let you manage your anxiety and stop it from overtaking your life. We are proud to be an important part of your journey to a fulfilling, happy life.
No matter what your experience with anxiety is like, our team at Life Insight is prepared to help. Through anxiety therapy, Burr Ridge therapists offer the guidance that you need to live life to its fullest. Get in touch with us today to book an intake appointment.
