Types of Anxiety

Anxiety can manifest differently for each individual. At Lifebulb, our anxiety therapists are trained to provide tailored treatments for each specific disorder. Many people experience comorbid disorders—meaning they experience two or more anxiety disorders at the same time. Our therapists in Allentown can help you cope with anxiety disorders such as:
Learn How Therapy Can Help

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is marked by chronic, excessive worry about everyday events and activities. It is one of the most common anxiety disorders and can appear at any age, although is most common in women. At Lifebulb, our licensed anxiety therapists in Allentown can work with individuals to identify and address the root causes of their anxiety.

Social anxiety is an intense fear of social situations and interactions. While some will only experience bursts of anxiety when participating in specific events such as public speaking or eating in public, others experience anxiety when confronted with any social task. At Lifebulb, anxiety therapy in Allentown can help individuals learn how to manage their anxiety and regain their confidence in social situations.

Panic attacks can be a terrifying experience, characterized by intense fear and physical symptoms such as heart palpitations and sweating. Panic attacks are a symptom of many anxiety disorders. If panic attacks appear suddenly and without much warning, you might have Panic Disorder. Anxiety therapy in Allentown can help individuals develop coping strategies and prevent future panic attacks.

OCD involves intrusive and recurring thoughts and behaviors that are difficult to control. It is often a debilitating and long-lasting disorder but is susceptible to talk therapy. Some people also find medication helpful in mitigating the symptoms. Our special OCD therapists in Allentown can work with individuals to develop coping mechanisms and provide effective anxiety treatments so that they can regain control of their lives.

Best Treatments for Anxiety

At Lifebulb, we offer a range of effective anxiety treatments tailored to each individual's needs. All of our Allentown anxiety therapists use only methods that have been proven by science to be effective. Many therapists will choose to use a combination of techniques to give you the best treatment possible. These treatments include:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a talk therapy that focuses on identifying and changing negative thinking patterns and behaviors. It is highly effective in managing anxiety and has a success rate of up to 80%. During CBT, you will learn to identify untrue, negative thinking and behavior patterns and replace them with positive, true patterns. It is great for people who experience the anxiety symptoms of overthinking, rumination, and doom spiraling.

Exposure Therapy

Exposure therapy involves gradually exposing individuals to their fears or triggers in a safe and controlled environment, helping to desensitize the fear response. It is particularly effective for treating phobias and has a success rate of up to 90%. This method is best for people with specific phobias or social anxiety. Therapists may also use mental visualization to confront fears that cannot be confronted in person.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT focuses on accepting difficult thoughts and feelings, rather than trying to avoid them. By embracing mindfulness and values-based living, ACT can be very effective in managing anxiety. ACT is also a value-based therapy approach and will ask you to act upon your values instead of your anxieties.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness-based therapy involves being present in the moment and learning to observe and accept one's thoughts and feelings without judgment. It can be an effective tool in managing anxiety. The skills it provides can help you long after you stop needing therapy. Whenever an anxious thought arrives, mindfulness can help calm it and center your mind.

Our anxiety therapists in Allentown have extensive training and years of experience in the field. They are dedicated to providing effective anxiety treatments to help each individual overcome their anxiety and lead fulfilling lives.

Building Healthy Coping Mechanisms for Anxiety

At Lifebulb, we understand that anxiety can feel overwhelming and isolating. But know that there is hope and help available. Our anxiety therapists in Allentown are here to help you overcome your anxiety and lead a fulfilling life. In addition to professional anxiety therapy, building healthy coping mechanisms for anxiety can also be beneficial. Here are three mindfulness techniques you can use to calm anxiety:

  • Box Breathing: If you're feeling overwhelmed, box breathing is a simple technique that you can use to slow down and calm your nervous system. Here's how: inhale for a count of four, hold your breath for four counts, exhale at the same pace, and then hold for another four counts. Repeat this pattern until you start to feel your body relax.
  • Color Scanning: Make yourself comfortable. Going left to right, scan your surroundings slowly. On your first pass, look for everything that has the color red. Name that item in your head. On your next pass, look for the color orange. Continue this process through the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
  • 333 Rule for Grounding: When anxiety takes over, try the 333 rule for grounding yourself in the present moment. Take a deep breath, get comfortable, and then name three things you can see, three things you can hear, and three things you can touch. This grounding exercise can help you find your center when you need it the most.
