CBT And Social Anxiety FAQ's

Here are some of the common questions we receive related to CBT And Social Anxiety:

Question Mark in the sand on the beach

How does Atlantic Mental Health's approach to Anxiety Therapy stand out? +

Atlantic Mental Health's approach to Anxiety Therapy is rooted in a deep understanding of the multifaceted nature of anxiety, especially in today's rapidly evolving world. Recognizing that anxiety is not just an individual experience but also a reflection of collective societal pressures, we delve into both the personal and broader contexts. Our therapy goes beyond surface-level symptoms, journeying into the unconscious mind to uncover underlying patterns, early experiences, and unresolved emotions.

Can Anxiety Therapy help even if I've felt anxious for years? +

Absolutely, Anxiety Therapy can be beneficial even if you've felt anxious for years. In fact, research consistently shows that therapy can lead to significant improvements in managing and understanding anxiety, regardless of its duration. At Atlantic Mental Health, our approach is rooted in gaining deeper insights into the role anxiety has played in your life. Many of our clients report that as they delve into understanding their anxiety, they begin to experience a shift in their day-to-day lives. While the external challenges might remain, their perceptions evolve. The once-intimidating waves of anxiety become more navigable, fear is continuously challenged, and genuine growth occurs. By working with us, you're not just addressing the symptoms but understanding the narrative of your anxiety, empowering you to lead a life where you're in control, and anxiety doesn't overshadow your potential.

What happens in your body when you experience anxiety? +

When you experience anxiety, it's as if your body is riding the waves of an unseen ocean. Deep within, a primal response system, often referred to as the "fight or flight" mechanism, is activated. This can lead to a surge of adrenaline, quickening your heartbeat and sharpening your senses. Your breathing might become more rapid as your body prepares to respond to a perceived threat. Muscles may tense up, and you might feel a churning sensation in your stomach. These physical reactions are your body's ancient way of preparing for challenges. However, in the modern world, these responses can be triggered by stressors that aren't immediate physical threats, making the experience feel overwhelming and out of place. Through therapy, we aim to understand these waves, navigate them, and equip you with tools to find calm amidst the storm.

What holistic practices do you incorporate in Anxiety Therapy? +

At Atlantic Mental Health, our approach to Anxiety Therapy is a harmonious blend of traditional psychology and holistic practices. We recognize that healing is multi-dimensional, and thus, we incorporate techniques like meditation and breathwork to complement our therapeutic sessions. These practices not only help in grounding and centering the mind but also offer a deeper connection to one's inner self. More importantly, we deeply respect and value the unique faith and cultural practices that our clients bring to the therapy room. We believe that these practices are intricately woven into one's identity and can be powerful anchors in the healing journey. By integrating these holistic elements, we aim to offer a therapy experience that is both comprehensive and deeply personal, addressing the mind, body, and spirit.

How frequently should I attend therapy sessions for anxiety? +

The frequency of therapy sessions for anxiety truly depends on the individual's unique needs and circumstances. At Atlantic Mental Health, we believe in a collaborative approach. During our initial consultation, we'll discuss and determine the frequency that aligns best with your therapeutic goals and lifestyle needs. Some clients find it beneficial to start with weekly or twice-a-week sessions to establish a foundation and gain momentum in their healing journey. As time progresses and as they feel more equipped to manage their anxiety, the frequency might be adjusted. Ultimately, the goal is to ensure that the therapy aligns with your pace and provides the support you need, making the process fluid and tailored to your evolving needs.
