Effective Techniques and Therapies for Anxiety

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a well researched and highly regarded form of therapy known to be extremely effective for many different forms of anxiety. CBT is also known to compliment other anxiety treatments. CBT's popularity has skyrocketed over the past decade as has research proving it's effectiveness.

Tapping (EFT)

Tapping – also known as Emotional Freedom Technique or “EFT” is a specialized series of techniques using the fingertips to “tap” points on the body's energy system – or meridians – to restore mental, emotional and physical balance. Although somewhat skeptical of EFT myself at first, after learning it a few years back I am a huge proponent of it's use for anxiety relief and phobias – it's also effective for many other mental and physical issues.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT is another form of therapy that is emerging as an effective treatment option for anxiety. ACT varies from CBT in that it's primary focus is on acceptance of thoughts versus analyzing or trying to change them. ACT works well with other therapies and works especially well with meditation and mindfulness practices.

Meditation & Mindfulness

Meditation and mindfulness can be extremely effective for managing anxiety. Most notably by creating greater acceptance and awareness and allowing us to “detach” from our thoughts and mental patterns. Research has also proven the effectiveness of meditation to reduce stress and anxiety and improve depression, as well as additional health benefits.

Breathing & Relaxation

Breathing and relaxation techniques can be profoundly effective for reducing anxiety and promoting calm, as an instrument for grounding in the body and the present moment and for reducing tension – among other health benefits. Breathing and relaxation techniques can also be done at virtually any time and anywhere, making these techniques a valuable addition to any therapy or practice.

Panic Attacks

There are various forms of techniques and therapies that can address the mental and physical symptoms of panic attacks (also called anxiety attacks). We will be focusing on these treatments for panic attacks separately from anxiety. Primary focus tends to be on reducing the fear associated with panic attacks and reducing the additional panic or second anxiety we often cause ourselves.
