Explore How Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Can Improve Anxiety Symptoms

Depression,,Sad,And,Woman,With,Eyes,Closed,In,Home,ThinkingAnxiety is among the most common mental health disorders in the world, with over 301 million people reported in 2019. Despite that fact, only one in four people receive treatment for their anxiety disorder. Whether they believe that they cannot be treated or they’re concerned about the social stigma behind therapy, it’s a staggering fact.

However, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a highly successful treatment option provided in therapy to treat anxiety disorders. A study from the National Institutes of Health reported that, in general, CBT is highly effective.

If you’re currently suffering from anxiety, discover how CBT can improve your anxiety symptoms.

What Is CBT?

CBT is a type of therapy that helps you become more aware of how your anxiety-inducing thoughts affect your actions. By identifying these thoughts when they happen, you can challenge them and respond to them more effectively. It has also been shown to be effective in treating other mental health disorders, such as depression, eating disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

How Can CBT Improve Anxiety Symptoms?

CBT can help you improve your anxiety symptoms by teaching you how to be aware of your thoughts and how to challenge those thought processes.

When you first begin therapy, you may be asked to speak about your symptoms and why you have sought treatment. This will help your therapist determine your goals and what you hope to gain from therapy.

Throughout your treatment, you may become more aware of your thought processes when you are experiencing anxiety symptoms or are in anxiety-inducing situations. As you become more mindful of this, your time in treatment can help you work through them in a healthy manner.

In time, you can improve on those thoughts, feelings, and behaviors until you have reformed them into new habits.
