Anxiety Disorders

Sep 15, 2010 by

Anxiety Disorders in general cause intrusive thoughts or negative thoughts about ourselves or the world, unpleasant or even painful physiological symptoms, fight-or-flight or avoidance behaviors which may hinder our performance, or unpleasant emotions at an increased duration or intensity beyond the norm. As the experience of anxiety continues, so we begin to feel drained and we experience diminished motivation in various facets of our lives.

Today it is widely accepted that anxiety can be treated relatively quickly by addressing distorted cognitions or behaviors which exacerbate one’s anxiety levels. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) enables patients to identify and alter problematic thinking styles in real-time situations in order to reduce their levels of anxiety. CBT is appropriate for the entire spectrum of anxiety disorders including phobias (e.g. driving phobia), social anxiety (e.g. public speaking), panic attacks, OCD, Post-Trauma (PTSD), eating disorders, and more.

      למרות שרוב המטופלים מתלוניים על סמפטום אחד בעיקר, לרובנו יש כמה סמפטומים שמבטאים את התסכול או מצוקה שאנו חווים, לכן אין משמעות בעובדה שאתה מזהה מספר סמפטומים במקום אחד בלבד.
