Signs + Symptoms of Anxiety in Men

It's important to note that men are just as likely as women to experience anxiety, but often present with different symptoms. While anxious thoughts can be a natural human response to a threat in the environment, we can offer you tools that can help calm anxious thought so you can reclaim your brain. 

 

Anxiety symptoms in men can manifest as constant worrying, feeling tense or restless, difficulty concentrating, racing thoughts, and obsessive thinking. You may have the tendency to catastrophize or overestimate negative outcomes, feeling trapped in a cycle of negative thoughts, unable to break free. 

When anxiety starts to interfere with daily life, therapy for anxiety can help. Certain forms of therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Narrative Therapy are empirically proven to help clients change anxious thoughts that are no longer helpful.

What Does Somatic Anxiety Feel Like?

Somatic anxiety is when anxiety manifests as physical symptoms, such as sweating, palpitations, dizziness, trembling, and shortness of breath. Men may also experience muscle tension, headaches, and gastrointestinal problems, like nausea or diarrhea.

 

Somatic anxiety can be distressing, as men may feel like something is physically wrong with them. Somatic anxiety is not the only form of anxiety, though, as some men report a more "heady" experience of racing thoughts while not experiencing any bodily or somatic symptoms of anxiety.

Counseling and neurofeedback can help with both experiences of anxiety. Working with a therapist who understands the difference between the two is crucial.

How Does Therapy Help Anxiety?

Therapy for anxiety can be a highly effective tool in managing symptoms of racing thoughts, irrational fears and an overactive nervous system. Men's anxiety therapy can provide men with a safe and supportive environment to explore their feelings and develop coping strategies.  

A key component of therapy for anxiety is the opportunity to explore where your anxiety comes from. Anxiety can be caused by many different factors, including genetics, traumatic experiences, and stress. ​​

Therapy for anxiety is a well-researched and evidence-based approach. Many studies support cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) as one effective modality for reducing anxiety symptoms. CBT is a type of therapy that focuses on changing negative thought patterns and behaviors.

What to Expect

​We get it - starting therapy is intimidating! You can expect your therapist to take an appropriate amount of time building rapport while you get comfortable in the therapy room.

 

We believe (and studies back us up) that if you don't like your therapist, therapy won't work. Your therapist will take this into consideration and build a relationship that feels healthy and safe prior to diving into deeper topics.

 

When you have a positive relationship with your therapist, you're more likely to make progress and achieve your goals.
