Oddly enough, being in touch with anxiety or stress can be an effective signal that something is "wrong in the system", and that change is called for to right it. Sometimes, however, anxiety interferes with daily functioning and leads to substantial discomfort, anguish, and even disabling fear. Beyond the recognition that this condition is sometimes best addressed with medication that reduces symptoms, it is important to explore anxiety's triggers and the factors that serve to empower it further in order to moderate its influence on us. Increased awareness, mindfulness, and honest challenges of anxiety's "right" to affect us in the way it does are all means of intervention.

Anxiety, in all its forms, is a psychological response to the threats and demands we experience in our daily lives. As we mobilise ourselves to deal with all of life’s challenges, we experience the strain and distress. Healing anxiety focuses on keeping the threats and challenges in perspective, and developing the skills to better care for ourselves at the same time.

My approach to working with anxiety and stress is body focused. Most people can "feel" anxiety and stress in their bodies thus I use the body's stress cues to teach us what the limits are. I would focus on listening and learning the body's cues and then teaching clients' how to physically "bring yourself down" from the elevated state of arousal that anxiety and stress cause.

Stress is a reality of the busy world we live in. However, anxiety doesn't need to be. I will help you look at three key aspects of stress and anxiety. First, is the anxiety you experience longterm or has it resulted from a new circumstance. Secondly, what are some skills you can implement to manage your anxiety. And ultimately if the anxiety is longterm, what are the root issues and belief systems that can be changed to bring peace to your life.

Registered Psychologist

I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to treat anxiety and stress. CBT can be powerful in terms of coming to understand entrenched ways of thinking and present opportunities to interrupt these habitual automatic responses and create responses that are less anxiety producing. Relaxation and mindfulness are also powerful tools that enable individuals to reduce anxiety and gain the ability to self sooth. Anxiety is often about fear of loosing control and/or over focus on the future. Mindfulness has the ability through practice to create a space where the individual stays in the present moment and pays attention to, and at times celebrates, what is happening.

At first, I explore the trigger(s) to the stress and anxiety in an attempt to decide whether treatment requires appropriate medication prescribed by a physician in conjunction with treatment and counseling or therapy alone. My therapy includes "talk therapy" and relaxation/hypnosis. This decision is made together with the client. As well we work together to develop coping mechanisms to deal with the anxiety as stress in very much part of today's life. I

My approach starts with clarifying the biological and psychological mechanics of anxiety and stress. It is important to identify how anxiety works in order to deal effectively with panic, stress and anxiety. I use cognitive behavioural strategies as well as hypnosis, mindfulness, and EMDR to support a client in a change process. Sometimes, anxiety and stress is connected to other issues such as abuse (historical or ongoing) or other trauma and it is important to resolve those issues to reduce anxiety and stress.

Stress and anxiety are frequent reasons for referrals, and the symptoms are painful and can often debilitate ones ability to function in everyday life. Our treatments are focused on helping people understand how they ended up in this situation, but also how to work your way out of it. The gradual breakdown in coping strategies and the inability to self protect, eventually can lead anyone to high stress levels and anxiety. Anxiety is at it's core ~ loss of self ~ and to regain one's self ~ one has to self protect, restore faith in your ability to pull through and find help.
