Everyone experiences stress and anxiety at different points. With the high number of competing demands in our society, often these feelings can become increasingly present and start to interfere with our daily life. They can invade our mind and body and cause us to experience a myriad of symptoms such as: constant worries, irrational fears, sleeplessness, muscle tension, rapid heart rate and muscle tension. I work to support those struggling to uncover, understand and address the roots of their anxiety. I also help them to learn a variety of stress-management, relaxation techniques and self-care techniques so they are better equipped to manage life's inevitable challenges in the future.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable.

If your anxiety is affecting your life and you feel that it’s time to start taking anxiety-reducing medications, learning about the anxiety therapy options in Calgary that are available and trying some anxiety management techniques may be a viable alternative.

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.

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)

Having feelings of anxiety is a natural human response to stress. However, when anxiety brings constant high levels of agitation, feelings of having no control, avoiding or suppressing your emotions, or fear of fear itself, anxiety becomes debilitating. Therapy, using emotional focussed and attachment models, will help you understand where in your life experiences these overwhelming emotions were established. The goal of therapy is to develop emotional balance and the ability to manage your environment and your vulnerabilities in a secure and healthy way.

Registered Counsellor

In T2T 2M1 - Nearby to Balzac.

Experiencing stress seems inevitable. However, when stress is overwhelming, we can develop anxiety, which can hinder us from participating in life in a full way. Our lives might get smaller, less satisfying, and we might feel that we are no longer in control. Anxiety often makes its presence known by uncomfortable physical symptoms in our bodies. Together, we will learn about these physical symptoms. We will explore how anxiety might have started and what triggers it. We will also develop strategies that shift your nervous system from anxiety, to a state of calm and connection with self, others, and the world.

Clinical Social Worker

In T2M 0M6 - Nearby to Balzac.

Anxiety and stress seem so common today, that they may seem to be unavoidable. I can tell you that you will be able to change the way you feel. At it's heart, anxiety is a warning system that something is wrong, but if it dominates your life, often you can't tell the difference between a minor blip and a major catastrophe. It's all overwhelming. Stress to some extent motivates you, but over a certain threshold can paralyze you. I have worked for many years with anxiety and stress, and will help you to negotiate through the challenges of bringing them back within your control. You can develop the understanding and skills to thrive in a challenging world.

Everybody suffers from stress at some points and key to reducing stress is to notice it by increasing our somatic awareness skills and engaging in habits and practices that help regulate the nervous system. Based on Internal Family Systems, an individual contains a multiplicity of relatively discrete minds, each of which has qualities that play a valuable role within the personality. So the next time something happens and you stress out, ask yourself: is this all of me that is stressed out, or just a part of me? Research suggests that this approach of mindful awareness, noticing the part that is stressed out, instead of just being fully in the stress, has a regulatory affect on the nervous system. I use, Internal Family Systems, CBT and tapping to improve your emotion regulation skills.

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.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2R 1E7 - Nearby to Balzac.

We live in a stressful, fast paced society in which many people wear their stress like a badge of honour. We are taught that being busy is a virtue. The problem arises when our bodies can no longer handle this continual, long-term stress. As humans we are built for occasional stress, as in, "incase of emergency break glass". We are not designed for long-term, unrelenting stress. All of this can lead to adrenal fatigue and burn-out. It can even become a medical issue if we let it go on for too long. If you notice yourself feeling tired all of the time, this is a sign to reach out for help. Message me today to book your appointment, I am here to help.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Emily Shaffer, M.A. Counselling, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T2S 3B1 - Nearby to Balzac.

Unfortunately with our incredibly fast paced society, anxiety and stress have become all-too-familiar struggles for all ages. People feel pressure from the many commitments in their lives, and with the beauty and curse of technology, we often feel we cannot get a break. It has become imperative that we learn ways of managing our anxiety and stress, and of slowing down our systems so that they do not get to a point of explosion. Many people enter into therapy at such a point, and we work hard to create a space where they can breathe and learn strategies for coping, as well as re-narrating old patterns.
