Child, Youth & Young Adult Anxiety Treatment In Toronto
Everyone experiences symptoms of anxiety, but they are generally occasional and short-lived, and do not cause problems. But when the cognitive, physical and behavioral symptoms of anxiety are persistent and severe, and anxiety causes distress in a person’s life to the point that it negatively affects his or her ability to work or study, socialize and manage daily tasks, it may be beyond the normal range. There are six main categories of anxiety disorders: phobias, panic disorders (with or without agoraphobia), generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, acute stress disorder and post traumatic stress disorder.
There are many psychological treatments that we at Thrive practice and teach our clients, such as relaxation training, meditation and stress management, which can help with anxiety disorders. Many people also benefit from supportive counselling; however, experts agree that the most effective form of treatment for anxiety disorders is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). Our therapist is certified and experienced in CBT, if you, your child or youth are suffering from anxiety contact us today! We are located in Toronto and offer anxiety treatments to children, teens and young adults.
