Anxiety can be triggered by a variety of situations. Sadly the effects of increased anxiety can go unnoticed until it begins to effect one's daily life.
Common signs of anxiety include:
avoiding people and situations
sudden weight loss or weight gain
While stress can be a positive and even motivate things, too much stress can lead to anxiety. Anxiety that has not been treated can begin to impact your relationships, home life, work life, and how you feel about yourself. It can also lead to using things to cope that are not good for you, such as alcohol or recreational drugs.
How can therapy help?
Therapy can help you to identify the affects of anxiety in your life. We are able to tailor treatment to meet your specific needs. Often times this includes building and refining adequate coping skills, increasing supports, and getting those unanswered questions answered. At Lotus Wellness Center, we use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which has been proven successful in treating anxiety and depression, and Mindfulness to help you focus on the hear and now and catch those pesky anxious thoughts before they send you down the negative spiral.
At the end of your treatment for anxiety you will have an increased sense of self, the best ways for you to cope, as well as the confidence to take on what is thrown at you in life. You will have a tool box of things that will help you beyond your last session with your therapist!
Don't wait for anxiety to get the best of you. Make the change today by scheduling your first session.
