Counseling for Anxiety

Online Counseling for Anxiety in Chicago, IL and PSYPACT States

Your mind doesn’t turn off.

You’re feeling tense almost all the time.

You have one speed – 100 miles an hour.

The worry you feel doesn’t take days off. Often, there’s something new to worry about; work, health, finances, or family. Sometimes you worry about something that’s not related to you at all.

Overall, you’re worrying constantly.

Your constant worry is breaking your focus, moving in and out of your mind throughout the day. Running over and over through your head when you try to sleep at night. Of course, that’s assuming you actually sleep.

You’re willing to do almost anything to find some peace.

You may have tried avoiding anxiety-provoking situations, stress-eating, or possibly even using substances to quiet the noise. You may have even had panic attacks – periods where you feel your heart race and your mind tell you that something terrible is about to happen. 

If any of these experiences sound familiar, you’re likely struggling with anxiety. Starting online counseling for anxiety can help.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy in Online Anxiety Therapy

A picture shows rocks stacked on the beach. This demonstrates concepts of online anxiety treatment in Chicago, IL with Equipoise Teletherapy.

One anxiety counseling method that has shown to be effective is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy or CBT. Often, CBT is our foundation in online counseling for anxiety.  When thinking of CBT, it’s helpful to envision a triangle. Research tells us that there is an association between thoughts, feelings, and actions.

These three components can all have an equal impact on each other. What does this mean? It means that your feelings and values can influence your actions and vice versa. CBT involves teaching you how to analyze the two major factors that influence your mood, your thought patterns, and your behaviors.

We will help empower you to resolve your anxiety.

The practice of CBT helps connect your thought patterns and your behaviors in order to control your actions around anxiety, making you better able to manage. When you incorporate mindfulness techniques to make you more aware of what your mind and body are doing when anxiety arises, you are better equipped to relieve your anxious thoughts.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy in Online Counseling for Anxiety

In addition to CBT, our anxiety therapists offered mindfulness-based therapy in online counseling for anxiety. These days, the word mindfulness is used in many different ways. To us, mindfulness is the practice of being actively aware of your thoughts, sensations, and environment around you. However, being mindful is much more than “smelling the roses.”

Our anxiety therapists incorporate mindfulness to help you be aware of what your body and mind are doing when you feel anxious. What thoughts cross your mind? Is there tension in your body? Overall, our anxiety therapists have found mindfulness to be helpful for anxiety and stress.
