Do you ever get that feeling of muscle tension and irritability? Perhaps you feel some pressure. Your leg might be tapping with impatience. That feeling could be so strong that you lose your train of thought or have difficulty falling asleep due to ruminating thoughts.
That feeling could be called anxiety, and it’s more than just excessive worry or panic attacks. Anxiety can become a way of life before you realize it.
According to the National Institute for Mental Health (NIMH), anxiety affects almost 20 percent of adults in the United States, but current estimates say that number could be as high as 30 percent.
That is mind-blowing when you consider that three out of 10 people you know struggle with clinical anxiety and either let it control their life or adapt to it with anxiety treatment.
Today you may have more questions than answers, but there is hope.
There are many ways to treat anxiety, and together we can devise the best plan of action. Because you know what’s best for you. Anxiety treatment is usually counseling and/or medication. At Mending Clinic, we always recommend attempting anxiety counseling when you start to feel overwhelmed and feel like your emotions are out of your control. Anxiety can be successfully treated using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other therapeutic theories and interventions to reframe your thoughts into healthier decisions, actions, and lives. Being able to give yourself control in your situations and give yourself a voice can be a game changer.
The counselors at Mending Clinic specialize in working with clients to find the root of their anxiety, in Arlington or anywhere in Texas. Anxiety counselors work with you to solve your anxiety, not sweep it under the rug.
