Anxiety is a natural response to danger and it is quite common to feel anxious when one faces a difficult or stressful situation. However, if worried thoughts and exaggerated fears interfere with day-to-day living, it may be helpful to see an Orlando counselor utilizing CBT counseling so that you can establish helpful coping skills to decrease anxiety levels. CBT focuses on the premise that our behavior and emotions are unduly influenced by our constant stream of thoughts and by how we choose to view situations. CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) will help you to manage your symptoms of anxiety by identifying and challenging your negative thinking patterns and replacing your unhealthy thoughts and beliefs with healthier, more adaptive, rational ways of thinking. In addition to utilizing CBT methods with our clients, at GroundWork Counseling in Maitland we typically include holistic life-style and self-care recommendations that include learning meditation and relaxation techniques, beginning a daily exercise program, limiting caffeine consumption, and eating a healthful, well-balanced diet. Anxiety symptoms in young children are often addressed by our Orlando Child Counselor utilizing play-therapy, sand tray therapy, and child appropriate cognitive behavioral therapy.
Fortunately, anxiety is treatable and often has a high success rate for alleviating symptoms and distressful thoughts. Although cognitive behavioral therapy doesn’t make your symptoms simply vanish, CBT does gives you effective tools and strategies to better manage and cope with anxiety. If you believe you, or your child could benefit from CBT therapy to lessen the negative symptoms of anxiety, don’t hesitate to call our Orlando Counselors and Orlando Therapists at GroundWork Counseling in Maitland.
