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.

Healthy anxiety is a transient response to stress. It prompts us to use coping skills. Sometimes anxiety becomes persistent, unreasonable and excessive, even to the point of a panic attack. The cause may be overwhelming stress, abuse, separation or loss, or a traumatic event. Unhealthy anxiety can lead to great distress, difficulty with daily life, relationship problems, avoidance of people, places and situations, and time-consuming habits. Treatment can help you: • develop strategies to manage stress and anxiety • conquer worrying • relate to others in healthy ways without fear of rejection or being evaluated negatively • recover from past trauma • get back to living life

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 2M5 - Nearby to Balzac.

When the body and mind have learned that a calm internal state is not safe, it remains in a state of alert, alarm, fear, or terror to meet it's needs. I believe anxiety is a coping style that has helped keep you safe and alive in the past, but might no longer be helpful or necessary. I can help you better understand your experience, regulate and calm, and adopt new ways of coping with stress.

Anxiety Counsellor

Bow Valley Counselling, BA, BSW, MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Balzac.

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.

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.

Anxiety as a result of stress is one of, if not the major contributing factor to poor health in most areas of people lives. If you have ever been tense before an exam or a visit to the dentist, you have a felt anxiety. Increased heart rate, sweating, rapid breathing, dry mouth, & a sense of dread are common. Changing this involves cognitive & behavioural approaches. Cognitive change is understanding how thoughts contribute to symptoms and how to change thought patterns to reduce the intensity of your anxiety. And behavioral changes involve using techniques to reduce or stop any undesired behaviors that are a result of the anxiety you have been experiencing.

When anxiety and stress become too heavy for us to carry on our own, it is helpful to seek professional support. Anxiety and stress are both normal, adaptive human emotions. However, when anxiety and stress become chronic they get in the way of living a meaningful and truly fulfilling life. In learning to cope with anxiety we will work on increasing awareness of your experience of anxiety. We will approach anxiety with acceptance and curiosity to understand the root. Most importantly, I will create an emotionally safe environment in which you will learn new strategies for responding to anxiety.

Residential Addiction Program

In T2V 0P7 - Nearby to Balzac.

Anxiety disorders commonly coexist with addiction tendencies. Anxiety can severely inhibit a person's life, causing them to feel an irrational amount of panic, fear and other negative emotions in any given circumstance. Severe anxiety may influence a person to avoid leaving their house, or to become paralyzed in situations they interpret as stressful. Many people who struggle with anxiety will try to self medicate with alcohol or drugs, which ultimately makes their symptoms worse. A dual diagnosis of addiction and anxiety requires special treatment considerations; the kind that Valiant Recovery provides.

Anxiety. Fear. Worry. Stress. Do these words seem all to familiar in your life? When faced with a multitude of responsibilities, long "to-do" lists, relationship demands, and meeting the expectations of others and ourselves, we may find ourselves unable to function, let alone enjoy life. We may be filled with self-doubt, especially when playing the "comparison game." Some people turn to substances such as alcohol and drugs to cope. Others work too many hours or engage in destructive or compulsive behaviors. Fortunately, there are healthy and productive ways to break the hold anxiety has on you and meet life on your terms. Let me help you to manage life demands and find peace again.
