What Are the Different Types of Therapy for Anxiety?

Since anxiety affects everyone differently, there are many types of therapy for anxiety. Common therapy techniques for anxiety include exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and blended approaches. Let’s look at some of them.

 

  • Exposure therapy for anxiety helps you to confront their fears instead of avoiding them. The therapist creates a safe environment in which you can be exposed to the situations, objects or activities which scare you.
  • Cognitive therapy for anxiety is aimed at teaching the brain to see the world in different ways by slowing down your thinking and considering whether your beliefs are rational or not. It helps you to calm down, change your beliefs about yourself, and become more optimistic.
  • Talk therapy for anxiety involves encouraging you to put your thoughts and feelings into words. The therapist sees the bigger picture and helps you identify patterns and find a solution. It is scientifically proven that talking can help you to figure out what’s really bothering you and what you can do about it.
  • Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) views anxiety as an inhibitory emotion that is covering up a deeper core emotion.  In AEDP, the therapist welcomes the core feeling and encourages it to be explored, understood, and resolved. Core feelings, when allowed to be experienced to completion, are similar to an ocean wave; they arise, crest, and recede. Once the core feeling is fully expressed, new positive feelings and energies emerge and the anxiety is resolved.

Many people who fear humiliation or rejection in social situations could benefit from therapy for social anxiety. Social anxiety is the most common anxiety disorder and like other disorders, it can be treated in a variety of ways. Exposure therapy for social anxiety can involve real-world confrontation such as speaking in front of an audience, vividly imagining the feared situation or role-playing with the therapist.

 

Other types of anxiety disorders include phobias, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder,  post-traumatic stress disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Anxiety disorder psychotherapy is always tailored to each patient’s condition and personality.
