Anxiety Therapy

Mindfulness

Anxiety therapy is  aimed at helping you manage and overcome anxiety-related challenges. Our psychologists in Calgary specialize in providing evidence-based anxiety therapy tailored to meet the unique needs of each client. Whether you're struggling with generalized anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, or specific phobias, anxiety therapy can offer you the support and tools you need to regain control over your life and find inner peace.

 

Key Components of Anxiety Therapy:

  • Understanding Anxiety: The first step in anxiety therapy is gaining a deeper understanding of anxiety and its impact on your life. Through guided exploration, you'll learn to identify the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that contribute to your anxiety, as well as the triggers that set it off.

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Techniques: Anxiety therapy often incorporates cognitive-behavioral techniques to challenge negative thought patterns and develop more adaptive ways of thinking. By learning to reframe irrational beliefs and replace them with healthier alternatives, you can reduce the intensity of your anxiety symptoms.

  • Exposure Therapy: Exposure therapy is a cornerstone of anxiety treatment, involving gradual and systematic exposure to feared situations or stimuli. Under the guidance of your therapist, you'll learn to confront your fears in a safe and controlled environment, gradually building confidence and resilience in the face of anxiety triggers.

  • Mindfulness and Relaxation Practices: Anxiety therapy may also include mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help you cultivate a sense of calmness and inner peace. From deep breathing exercises to progressive muscle relaxation, these practices can reduce physiological arousal and promote relaxation in times of stress.
