Anxiety is a common condition that affects most people at some point in their lives. Research indicates that over 30% of adults and adolescents in America have experienced moderate to severe anxiety at some point in their lifetime. Anxiety is characterized by physical sensations of discomfort and excessive worry. In most cases, these symptoms are temporary. However, some people may find that their symptoms persist or worsen over time, negatively impacting their daily lives, including work, school, and relationships. There are several types of anxiety, including phobias, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, and panic attacks.
Overcoming anxiety is possible, and there are effective treatments available. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that is widely considered the best standard of psychological treatment for anxiety and other mental health issues. CBT has undergone the most rigorous scientific testing of any form of psychotherapy and has been proven to be an evidence-based treatment for anxiety. Moreover, CBT can serve as a foundation and can be combined with other psychotherapies to enhance its effectiveness further.
At The Main Foundation, our licensed psychologists have expertise in integrating CBT with other effective psychotherapies to assess and treat anxiety accurately.
