Anxiety is one of the most treatable disorders. The treatment of anxiety is two-fold.
First the client learns new ways to reduce anxiety through awareness of physical symptoms, irrational thinking patterns, and lifestyle factors that contribute to stress and anxiety.
Next, through therapy, the client learns to identify their anxiety symptoms and implement relaxation techniques to manage the anxiety. Learning vital stress skills allows for a sense of control and mastery of life.
