In brief: Many different types

Most anxiety disorders are labeled based on what causes the anxiety.
Some people are excessively shy and have social anxiety disorder, some people experience panic attacks out of the blue and have panic disorder, and some people worry about everything and suffer from generalized anxiety. Also, many people suffer from different kinds of trauma in their lives and develop ptsd.

In brief: Depends..

On how you approach it.
Using symptoms, there are several categories of anxiety disorders. But, what causes anxiety? From this viewpoint, i would say the major types are those caused by stress/trauma, toxins, nutritional disruptions, allergies, and neurotransmitter imbalances. Therapy should be based on resolving the causes.
