I approach anxiety differently from many therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against the anxious thoughts and feelings, I encourage people to explore what is feeding and maintaining them. They develop tools and strategies to move forward despite their paralyzing thoughts and feelings. We learn how to change behaviour based on what is most important to us rather than continuing to be held hostage by stress, panic and anxiety. This values-driven approach can guide behaviour change long-term. I believe that it is only through acceptance and thoroughly understanding our feelings that changes can really happen.

Here are some of the potential benefits: improved health, weight loss, smoking cessation, alcohol reduction or elimination, improved relationships and marriage, etc. All of these benefits can occur when you learn how to manage, NOT AVOID, stress and anxiety.

Prusik works with children, youth and young adults (5-25) both in and outside of the office. By teaching clients simple "grounding" (emotional regulation skills for anxiety) and by practicing these skills in the home and out in the community, clients are able to create healthy neuro-pathways (pathways in the brain). Each client is unique and Prusik will create a therapeutic approach that best fits each client, taking age and personality characteristics into consideration. for more information.

Does it sometimes feel like anxiety is a monster that seems to have control over your life? That stress has a stranglehold on you? That everything you do is organized around avoiding the intrusion of these awful feelings? That you feel so powerless to change any of it that you are ready to explode. And sometimes are afraid you will. Feelings of anxiety are incredibly uncomfortable, intense, overwhelming at times and even terrifying. They can overwhelm our thoughts leaving us unable to think about nothing more than worries we have about the future and what could happen, or horrible reruns of what has already happened in the past. We begin to turn all our resources toward avoiding these thoughts and feelings. The more effort we take to avoid feeling...(view profile to read more)

We all know what anxiety feels like. Our heart pounds before a big presentation or a tough exam. We get butterflies in our stomach during a blind date. We worry and fret over family problems or feel jittery at the prospect of asking the boss for a raise. However, if worries and fears are preventing you from living your life the way you'd like to, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. There are six major types of anxiety disorders, each with their own distinct symptom profile: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. The good news is there are many anxiety treatments and self-help stra....

Registered Provisional Psychologist

1511 10 ST SW, Calgary, AB T2R 1E8

Everyone feels anxious from time to time. Stressful situations such as meeting tight deadlines or important social obligations often make us nervous or fearful. Experiencing mild anxiety may help a person become more alert and focused on facing challenging or threatening circumstances. But individuals who experience extreme fear and worry that does not subside may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. The frequency and intensity of anxiety can be overwhelming and interfere with daily functioning. Fortunately, the majority of people with an anxiety disorder improve considerably by getting effective psychological treatment

Reg. Psychologist, Marriage & Famly Therapist, Counsellors

1404 10 Street NW, Calgary, AB T2M 4M8

Sometimes we are affected by anxiety - could be mild or a full blown panic attack. We notice that our thoughts race 'by themselves', our heart rate is elevated, our palms may be sweaty, we are restless and have a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep. In counselling you can learn to stand up to anxiety, to identify your various responses to stressors and find effective ways to change the ways you think and feel. Learn ways to express your worries, fears and concerns and ways to get your needs met.

Fear, doubt, worry? Butterflies in the stomach? Anxiety affects 5% of the population, and is one of the oldest and most common mental health challenges around. 60% of the physical issues that take people to a doctor's office are related to stress. Many people want symptom relief, which I do, but how it shows up in your life is individual to you. I explore your life and work with you to unearth 'holistic' roots that may be keeping it in place.

Anxiety is a positive emotion signalling uncertainty and potential danger, and its best contribution occurs when it is temporary and when it is combined with healthy decision-making. At McNaughton & Associates Counselling we will help you gain confidence in recognizing the good work anxiety is doing, and separate it from the "nagging" work that anxiety also likes to do, after all the usefulness is gone.
