Understanding the Different Anxiety Conditions We Treat
More than just the occasional worry, anxiety can take on many different forms. For ease of diagnosing and treatment, psychologists group these into a few conditions that fall under the label of anxiety. Some of the different ways in which you may experience anxiety include:
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder – This is the most common type of anxiety and is characterized by persistent feelings of worry in situations where there is no equivalent danger.
- Panic Disorder – A panic attack is an intense psychological and psychological event that causes feelings of extreme stress and worry while you also experience symptoms like elevated heart rate, trouble breathing, nausea, and hyperventilating.
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – Often called PTSD, this is a reaction to a traumatic or life threatening event that can cause panic attacks, insomnia, nightmares, or general anxiety.
- Social Anxiety – Social phobia results in panic attacks or avoidance of social situations like gatherings, crowded spaces, and tasks like speech giving.
- Other Phobias – A range of other phobias cause you to fear specific situations or objects even if you rationally know there is nothing to fear.
With our patient focused anxiety therapy in Brookville, Long Island Psychology knows that any anxiety you deal with happens in the context of other events and challenges in your life. This gives us a deep understanding of what you are facing and the keys to make a lasting improvement on your mental health.
It is also key to understanding that you may experience more than one type of anxiety at a time, or have anxiety alongside other mental health conditions like depression.
