Anxiety is really just an extreme or persistant form of stress. It can be experienced in many different ways — physically, emotionally, and in the way people view the world around them. Anxiety mainly relates to worry about what might happen — worrying about things going wrong or feeling like you’re in some kind of danger OR what has happened— worrying about how you behaved or handled a situation.
Fusion Care Group utilizes a type of talk therapy called cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT). In CBT, clients try out new ways to think and act in situations that can cause anxiety, and to manage and deal with stress. The therapist provides support and guidance and teaches new coping skills, such as relaxation techniques or breathing exercises. Fusion Care Group also utilizes exposure therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical and Behavioral therapy DBT), and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) to decrease anxiety responses. Sometimes, but not always, medication or neurofeedback is recommended as part of the treatment for anxiety.
Neurofeedback is a non-medication based treatment that is helpful in reduction of anxiety symptoms. To learn more please contact our sister company www.sandiego-neurofeedback.com
