Psychological Treatments for Anxiety

Anxiety disorders often respond well to psychotherapy, either alone or combined with medication and lifestyle changes. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), customised to individual concerns, stands out as a highly effective option. Patients learn to question distorted thinking patterns that cause significant distress.

A crucial component of most behavioural treatments for anxiety is exposure therapy, where patients are safely and gradually confronted with their fears to reduce avoidance. Medication is frequently used to help patients manage symptoms sufficiently to engage in talk therapy.

Long-term anxiety management relies heavily on lifestyle adjustments. Exercise, deep breathing techniques, and meditation programmes target specific aspects of the disorder.
