Stress & Anxiety

Mike Buckley, PhD Psych, MA Coun, RCT, CCC.

Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT)

If depression is the common cold of mental health then anxiety and stress must be the flue. Most of my clients have some level of anxiety or stress. Often debilitating anxiety has its roots in trauma or abuse. I teach a wide range of meditation and relaxation techniques developed over my 30+ years of counselling experience that I use myself on a daily basis - with variations that my clients over the years have come up with on their own. Even if you have tried to relax or meditate before this and found it difficult or impossible, there are techniques that can help you learn to be still and have peace even in the face of danger, anxiety, or fear.

Do you suffer from generalized stress or acute anxiety attacks? The symptoms of stress can vary widely, but the causes of stress in our world increase daily. Often the underlying cause of a client's anxiety has been pushed into the unconscious, which can exaggerate your sense of weakness and inadequacy. In stress counselling I help people to develop an understanding of who you are and how you function. The solution is to be open to the stories of childhood and to look closely at your dreams, creative inspirations and values to help you deal with stress positively. I do stress counselling locally in Halifax, Nova Scotia and by e-counselling throughout North America.

Do you feel tense and uptight and want to be more relaxed? Stress is the result of overloading our capacity to cope. Anxiety and worry make us suffer for bad outcomes that have not even happened. Counseling will help you identify triggers and to relieve them in healthy ways. We will talk about anxiety attacks and flashbacks and hypervigilance. We'll look at your past for the roots of anxiety and stress. You may be taking meds (check with doctor first) or using alcohol or drugs or pot and want to deal with your feelings yourself. Do you want to strengthen your trust and faith that the world is mainly a safe place? Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) or EMDR are interventions we can discuss.

I often am asked to assist people with anxiety and stress. I usually respond witha solution focused approach and also informed by mindfulness. We exploring with the person the nature of their anxiety, the situations where it is experienced and also when it seems to be lessened. Anxiety can come from a number of sources, sometimes related to trauma, sometimes to an event and thoughts about that event. We explore when anxiety can be useful and when it is debilitating. Together we develop some strategies to identify triggers and/or ways to restore balance and a sense of calm.
