Everyone Deals With Worries Now & Then
When those worries start to become persistent, meddling and triggering then you have likely transitioned from a simple worry into a fully functioning anxiety. Anxiety is a mental health disorder that can greatly affect the way you move through the world by limiting your confidence in yourself and amplifying unknown dangers. When attending therapy for anxiety, you will learn how to let go of the fear holding you back and move to healthier coping mechanisms.
Do I Have Anxiety?
For many, symptoms of anxiety fly under their radar because they are so preoccupied with what is going on in their lives. Unless you have constant anxiety attacks, knowing when you are dealing with anxiety versus nervousness is confusing. That is why Room For Change is committed to helping you understand how anxiety plays a role in your life and what tools you can use if you are ever stuck in an anxiety attack. This means being open about what you are experiencing, even if it elicits “negative emotions” from you. Anxiety is not something that can be pushed aside, and the sooner you come to terms with what you are feeling the more confidence you will have in yourself to face those fears head-on. Below are some coming symptoms of someone dealing with anxiety:
- A drastic change in sleeping or eating habits
- Overthinking every scenario or conversation
- Isolating yourself from your support network
- An impending sense of danger even when there is none present
- Physical Manners: Pacing, sweaty hands, constantly cracking bones, fidgeting
- Increase in heart rate and difficulty breathing during anxiety attacks
- Trouble staying in the present moment; wandering mind or dissociating
- Overwhelming feelings of tiredness or exhaustion
Is Therapy Right For Me?
Attending therapy for anxiety can be eye-opening in many ways. To begin, you will come to understand where your anxiety stems from and how those worries have been ingrained in your mind, causing you to have strong reactions.

There are many grounding techniques that therapy can teach you for instances where your anxiety is overwhelming. At Room For Change, we want to provide you with a variety of resources that are not only personalized to your lifestyle but are also realistic for your degree of anxiety.
