Anxiety can manifest itself in various ways. From psychological effects to physical ailments, it may feel, at times, like there's no way to overcome it. With individual and group therapy at Positive Pathways, anxiety can be treated, and symptoms can be greatly reduced.
At Positive Pathways, our highly-trained and devoted therapists approach your anxiety in one of the two ways. Both Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Exposure Therapy usually take between 5 and 20 weekly sessions.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy: As the name suggests, this therapy focuses on thoughts in addition to behavior. When used in anxiety disorder treatment, it helps to identify and challenge the negative thinking patterns and irrational beliefs that are fueling the anxiety.
Exposure Therapy: Fears are confronted in a safe, controlled environment. Through repeated exposure to both reality and imagination, one gains a greater sense of control over the feared object or situation. As this fear is faced without harmful effects, feelings of anxiety gradually diminish.
