What is Anxiety?
Anxiety, a common response to stress, can be presented as fear, dread, or uneasiness. Physical symptoms can occur as well, such as sweat, feeling tense and restless, and having a rapid heartbeat.
However, an anxiety disorder involves repeated episodes where one experiences sudden and intense anxiety, fear, and possibly terror. These feelings can peak in minutes.
Anxiety disorders are a common mental illness. In fact, the National Institutes of Health says that about one-third of American adults have experienced an anxiety disorder.
Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a method of psychotherapy that is led by a licensed therapist. During these sessions, your therapist will assist you with identifying negative thoughts and their origin, ask you to question and reflect on the reasoning behind these thoughts, and suggest that you replace your negative ideas with realistic ones.
CBT is an anxiety treatment that serves as a comprehensive and mindful way to help patients deal with different anxiety disorders, such as:
- Social anxiety disorder
- Noise sensitivity anxiety
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Panic disorder
Therapists may also recommend CBT as anxiety treatment for disorders where anxiety is a common symptom. Some examples include obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
