Registered Psychologist

In T2V 2Y6 - Nearby to Balzac.

Anxiety becomes a problem when it causes so much distress or impairment that we are not able to function optimally in our day-to-day lives. Fears and worries can become so intense that they interfere with our decision-making, work performance, ability to travel, try new things, or develop and maintain strong social connections. If you feel that this describes your difficulties, we can help. We help our clients learn to use relaxation and breathing techniques to gain greater mastery over their physiology, and to identify and change catastrophic and black-and-white thinking patterns that perpetuate anxiety and excessive worries. We can help you feel like you are back in charge of your life. Call us today at 403-255-8577 to book and appointment or gain more information.

I empathize, listen and work with clients to determine stressors in their lives and together figure out ways to minimize and/or abstain from stressors if necessary. Sometimes, unhealthy/irrational thoughts may cause anxiety/stress among clients. Thus, I work with clients to determine and correct unhealthy/irrational thoughts and beliefs to healthy/rational thoughts and beliefs.

Registered Social Worker

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Balzac.

Working with clients for 15+ years, I worked extensively with clients who experience anxiety and depression. In my experience anxiety and stress are two different things. Stress is being unable to adequately handle a situation that goes beyond our ability to cope. Stress is normal given an entirely new situation we are faced with such as a new job, etc. This usually requires learning some new coping skills. However, anxiety is a sustained feeling of unease that in its extreme can be experienced as panic or the inability to calm oneself. Often I have found that anxiety that has been sustained for a long time is generally connected to trauma and is best healed by working with the body.

Anxiety and Stress are the norm in today's world. Our fast-paced society pulls our attention in many directions and often away from ourselves. Being disconnected from our feelings, needs and wants is often a cause of anxiety. Mindfulness-based counselling is a powerful way to have us create an island of sanity for ourselves amidst the speed of our lives. By learning to reconnect with ourselves amidst the busyness of life, we are put back into relationship with our hearts and what is truly meaningful to us.

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to Balzac.

Stress is when our old coping strategies are ineffective to help us with our current challenges in life. Stress management is about adapting to the challenges before us and this is not always easy. At times, our stress is magnified by anxiety and anxiety is based in fear. One of the strategies I teach clients is to ask themselves is it anxiety? Is it a genuine and imminent danger to you? When it's anxiety then I have strategies to help you evaluate your stressors and your environment to reduce the impact on your day to day life.

Lynne Goertzen, MA, CSAT, CMAT, RRT

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Balzac.

Anxiety is a normal, human response to stressful events that we each experience at times ... like delivering a speech (or presentation at work or narrowly avoiding a car accident. It becomes a problem when we feel anxious a LOT, or our response is out of all proportion to the situation, or we avoid the provoking situation/thing, and it interferes with our day-to-day lives. Anxiety is treatable. I can help you reduce your stress response, manage your physiological responses (like breathing), change your thinking about the feared event, and build your repertoire of self-care and relaxation-enhancing activities -- all of which will reduce your anxiety and enhance your quality of life.

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....

Stress is the body’s natural reaction to danger. It’s meant to help identify a problem that needs your attention to fix. However, when the stress lasts too long, it can start to impact our physical and mental health. In my practice we look at understanding the root of all stress or anxiety and together we create practical, meaningful coping strategies.

Registered Psychologist- Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Counselling

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to Balzac.

Anxiety sometimes feels like a normal piece of life, but often it actually is beyond what would be considered healthy. People may think that they can 'tough' through the pain or that it will eventually go away. Even if this is true, counselling can help expedite the process and teach coping tools you might not have previously had. Likewise, if your anxiety is severe, you don't have to continue living like that. Help and healing is possible.

In T3G 5G8 - Nearby to Balzac.

In order to effectively manage anxiety, worries and stress, one needs to learn to reduce and relax the amygdala’s fear and panic response. Adopting a mindfulness mindset, paired with stress reduction techniques, are one of the best antidotes to being carried away or paralyzed by stress, worries and anxiety. By practicing mindfulness-based activities and tools specifically designed to combat and better manage the effects of stress and anxiety, you will release the heavy burden they can cause. You will learn how to more peacefully coexist with your thoughts and your emotions in the present moment, thus creating a state of inner calm to help contain and lower your stress, worries and anxiety.

Kate Hollowell Sheldon, MC, R. Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T2T 2Z2 - Nearby to Balzac.

Anxiety and stress is an inevitable part of all of our lives and it serves a great purpose when experienced in moderation. Anxiety and stress are one of the most commonly presented concern that clients want to address. I use a holist, person-centered, cognitive behavioural approach to address anxiety. In some cases, I utilize some of my trauma-informed training to tackle this issue to help the client learn how to take back their power and manage their anxiety and stress rather than allowing the anxiety and stress to take control of them. We often work on developing skills and strategies that you can use in your daily life to feel empowered, happier, and at peace.

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 0L7 - Nearby to Balzac.

Anxiety and stress can make it hard to think clearly, make decisions and find enjoyment in every day activities. While living with some stress is normal, anxiety can get in the way of living your life the way you want. It is difficult to overcome the impact of anxiety without professional help. Many of my clients have tried to cope on their own or with some help, but find that the anxiety never truly goes away. I can help you or your child in identifying the underlying causes of your anxiety, and to learn how to successfully cope with life's challenges and to live more fully.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T2G 0A2 - Nearby to Balzac.

Life can be stressful and overwhelming at times, which leaves you with little energy to direct towards change. When we feel like our responsibilities, roles, and experiences are just too much for us to handle or cope with, it can be useful to have the opportunity to take a step back and evaluate our circumstances. Counselling can help to sort through experiences of stress and anxiety, to foster clarity, and to develop new ways of managing and meeting life's challenges.

Susan Leslie, M.Ed, R.Psych

Counselling Psychologist

In T3E 7V3 - Nearby to Balzac.

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)

Tanya Hutchinson, B.Sc., M.Sc.

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to Balzac.

Stress is a normal, adaptive response to changes in our circumstances and/or environment. Stress can act as a motivator, however when it becomes chronic and overwhelming, it can negatively impact our relationships ourselves, family and friends, our work interests and hobbies, and increase our risk of the development of other psychological and physical health concerns such as anxiety and depression. I assist clients in resolving their anxiety by identifying and understanding symptoms, identifying triggers that increase symptoms, and developing practical day-to-day strategies that provide both short-and-long term relief.

Registered Psychologist

In T2T 0A1 - Nearby to Balzac.

Anxiety is, simply, put, unrelenting worry that continues after the thing or circumstance you are worrying about is removed or it is the exaggerated worry about something. In anxiety, the sheer size of the worry in relation to the concern, the realistic vs. non-realistic nature of the concern, and the frequency or level of control related to concern matter. OCD relates to obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. Social Anxiety is an intrusive, disruptive fear of people or certain social situations. Often, we see fears of judgement, body image, looking awkward or stupid, as being thematic in social anxiety thoughts. Just to name a few example of how anxiety can present itself.

Anxiety and stress are huge factors when it comes to motherhood. Whether you are having your first baby or your third, it is not an easy job, especially today. I work with women to help address what is contributing to their sense of overwhelm so that we can determine where to start. I find by looking at the whole picture we are usually able to decide on a few key areas to begin working on. Once the ball is rolling, the rest comes pretty easily.

Anxiety and stress can be effectively managed with a shift in perspective and behaviours used to cope. I help clients learn the strategies necessary to change the meaning they make of situations and master physiological tension and anxiety. It is impossible to be relaxed and anxious at the same time. Then clients are taught to master their thinking and free themselves from stranglehold of anxiety and stress.
