Therapy for anxiety disorders is a not a generic thing. There are different types of therapies and not all are equal when it comes to anxiety disorders.  These differences are important, so should be aware of when looking for a therapist.  Lets take a look at some of those issues in this episode.

Because they undergo different training and focus on different things, there is a big a difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist.  In general, a psychiatrist is going to take a different approach to your anxiety issues than a psychologist will.  Its important to understand this when choosing a therapist.

There are several common types of therapy.  Each is different, and not all are effective therapies for anxiety disorders. Just talking about how you feel tends to be ineffective.  Because of the nature of anxiety problems, behavioral therapy is shown by a large body of research to be the most effective therapy for anxiety disorders.

When looking for a therapist, there are some key things to look for and important questions to ask. Get to know a potential therapist before hiring him or her.  Not every therapist will be a good fit for you personally.  Its quite common to have to “interview” several therapists before finding the one that you feel is right for you.
