Meet Our Team Of Anxiety's Psychiatrists

Overview

Since there are different anxiety disorders, psychotherapy is often tailored to the specific disorder type, thus, the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) will be different from that of someone with panic attacks. Even the length of psychotherapy differs depending upon the type as well as the severity of the anxiety disorders. However, in most cases, significant improvements are observed within 8 to 10 sessions of therapy.

There are various types of psychotherapies available. Often, they are used in a blended approach. Some examples include –
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. CBT helps you identify your negative thinking and ineffective behaviours that fuel anxiety in order to replace them with more constructive thoughts and effective behaviours and coping skills.
Exposure Therapy. This therapy is based on the premise that the best way to conquer one’s fear is to face it head on. Thus, it gradually exposes the individual to their fears and worries in order to help ‘desensitize’ them to them.
Interpersonal Therapy. This therapy focuses on relationships and social roles and can be useful if one’s anxiety stems from relationships such as in the case of social anxiety disorder.
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. This therapy uses mindfulness techniques and teaches the individual to accept their anxiety at the same time working towards changing it.
