Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety
Anxiety can look different for each person. It can also be present in different ways with different intensities. Some people may experience more physical symptoms while others may experience emotional symptoms.
Here are some common signs and symptoms:
- Excessive worry or fear
- Trouble sleeping
- Difficulty concentrating
- Muscle tension or headaches
- Nausea or abdominal pain

It’s important to know that each person may only have some of these symptoms or may experience them to different degrees. It’s possible only to experience a few mild symptoms or to experience many severe symptoms.
How Can Anxiety Therapy at Sweet Mango Therapy Group Be Beneficial?
Anxiety therapy is where you can feel safe exploring the root causes of your anxiety. You will be able to understand what’s driving your anxiety and learn how to manage it in a healthy way. You will have an anxiety therapist supporting you through this process. The therapist will show you how what you think or say to yourself will affect how you feel and what you do.
By doing this, you will be able to learn how to spot worries or negative thoughts. Then you can decide whether they’re worth listening to and hold a positive or realistic perspective. You will also learn how to “talk back” to the unhelpful worries your anxiety creates by recognizing and challenging them. This will help you to see things in more natural light. Which may help you identify real and imaginary threats.
It’s not about getting rid of all your anxiety but rather learning how to manage it in a way that doesn’t control your life. This will help you develop a more healthy, and more positive outlook on life. Which will lead to improved relationships, work life, and self-care.

Our Approach to Anxiety Therapy
At Sweet Mango Therapy Group, our approach to anxiety therapy is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Our anxiety therapists will support you to recognize that what you think and tell yourself will ultimately reflect how you feel and what you do, which is what CBT is all about. Your specialized therapist will work with you to develop a more positive outlook on your anxiety by exploring the root causes and developing healthy coping habits.
Some examples of how our anxiety therapists might help you manage your anxiety are by teaching you:
- Relaxation skills to calm the body
- Keeping a journal or written log to track worries at home
- Practice mindfulness skills, including meditation
- Identify the voice in your head that constantly judges you (your inner critic)
- Practice Self-Compassion
- Address basic needs (sleeping and eating)
- Learn how to express thoughts and feelings healthily.
