Anxiety Treatment Targets Symptoms

There are various types of anxiety and all are distinguished by a set of symptoms. For example, in generalized anxiety disorder, the most common symptoms include excessive worrying, feeling tired, poor concentration, and sleep disturbance.

In social anxiety disorder, the main focus is around fear of social interactions. This often causes a person to avoid social experiences and performance related experiences. 

In panic disorder, a person has unexpected and frequent panic attacks. A panic attack has its own set of symptoms including many that are primarily physical. For example, accelerated heart rate, shortness of breath, sweating, feelings of being out of control. These symptoms can be both physically and emotionally uncomfortable. Many people with panic attacks fear when the next panic attack will happen and may change their routines to avoid them.

Though these are some of the types of anxiety and symptoms, it is not an all-inclusive list. You may experience some or none of these symptoms at the time of seeking therapy. Only you know what you feel. Therapy will involve you sharing some of your symptoms and experiences. We will discover if you have anxiety or if something else may be causing your distress.
