I teach people who suffer from anxiety techniques for diffusing it. Sometimes this involves breathing, toning, writing, exercise. It depends on who you are and what kind of anxiety you feel. When the symptoms of anxiety are lessened, it is often important to understand the cause. If it is your life circumstances, can you change them? If not, can you stop blaming yourself for the things which are not under your control? If your anxiety comes from expectations that your parents or other influential people had of you, we can work to change those expectations from the past into more realistic ideas of how to handle your present given the real circumstances of your life and of who you are.

Many people turn to medication in a quick attempt to suppress the symptoms of their anxiety or stress, but as long as the stress causing situation exists, so will the anxiety or stress. To truly alleviate the issue you have to fix it, not mask it with medication. The best proven method for treating anxiety is to learn to re-interpret the situation by lessening the perceived danger or increasing your coping skills. I can help you in a realtively short period of time using various techniques including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and neuro/biofeedback. We will work together to implement ways for you to control your anxiety and handle those bumps that life likes to throw our way!

Anxiety often stems from a deep-seated need to control situations in a world that feels out of control. It always feels like a battle that is never completely won, only more or less managed. There is often a need to compensate for the stress with addictive substances that provide temporary relief, but this is a downhill slope. You will learn simple techniques to calm the animal body (your body) and you will also learn to tune into deeper truths and inner wisdom that will allow you to relax into your life and go with it. It's about having fun and learning to trust and dance with the energies of life.

Anxiety is perhaps the most misunderstood emotional response and most persistent issue I see in my practice. I offer effective strategies and ways to understand and reduce anxious feelings. Dealing effectively with anxiety includes leaving therapy with a felt sense that you are capable of coping not just with anxious feelings, but also fear, anger, and sadness. Clients report that they leave their therapy experience with me feeling like they have a much clearer understanding of what the anxiety is (and isn't), how to manage or totally reduce the anxiety they feel in the moment, and how to stop it from holding them back from the happiness they are looking for.
