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

Stress and anxiety if not managed can wreak havoc on your life. I provide targeted therapy to help you cope with and reduce the stress in your life, and to help you to identify, process, and cope with your triggers for anxiety, with the ultimate goal of regaining health and balance in life. My approach is to develop an individualized plan to address your unique needs, through skillful integration of several evidence based therapies including CBT, DBT, ACT, MI, etc. If stress and anxiety is interfering with your daily functioning (eg. you are having headaches, sleep disturbance, irritability, feeling overwhelmed, excessive worry, tension, chest pain, fatigue, etc.) therapy may be the answer.

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 is a positive emotion signalling uncertainty and potential danger, and its best contribution occurs when it is temporary and when it is combined with healthy decision-making. At McNaughton & Associates Counselling we will help you gain confidence in recognizing the good work anxiety is doing, and separate it from the "nagging" work that anxiety also likes to do, after all the usefulness is gone.

Registered Psychologist

In T2G 1L8 - Nearby to Balzac.

Working with anxiety is a specialty of mine. Arguably, in the field of psychology we know quite a bit about anxiety as compared many other presenting concerns. In my approach with anxiety we will often begin with interventions that address behaviours and thoughts. Starting in this way will generally lead to effective symptom management in a few months’ time. Subsequently we can begin to work through past experiences that keep anxiety present. It has been my professional experience that exploring these emotional experiences increases the likelihood of sustainable symptom management in the long term.

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.

Jeannine Crofton, M. A. Counselling Psychology.

Registered Psychologist

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.

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

Donna Murphy, MSW, RSW Cert.Ad.Ed.

Master of Social Work

In T2T 0C2 - Nearby to Balzac.

We live in a world that gives us the message that to work and manage home life is to be successful, yet the lived experience of this belief leaves many feeling they are stressed and thus "not successful" because they cannot handle the world of ups and downs. We are taught to question ourselves in those moments and not the beliefs we are told about what it means to balance work and life. Furthermore our histories can at times leave us with coping strategies that often lead to stress and anxiety. Meditation has been showing more benefits to individuals dealing with anxiety and stress. I am a certified meditation instructor and use a combination of therapy and mindfulness.

Anxiety Counsellor

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.

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.

Stressors and anxiety are a normal part of life. It is how you respond to the changes that life sends your way that makes the difference between being resilient or unhealthy. Distinguishing between unhealthy and healthy anxiety and learning to effectively manage stressors are key life skills. Also what we tell ourselves about a given situation has a lot to do with how we manage it. Together we will explore your stressors and work at eliminating your ineffective beliefs and developing ways to manage difficult situations more effectively. .

In the therapy time anxiety and stress are explored. People with strong levels of anxiety and panic can find relief from the feelings. After the sessions, people often find that they do not need to avoid a variety of people or situations they previously avoided that led to the anxiety. They may also learn how to manage and eventually experience minor levels or no anxiety at all. Stress and methods to reduce and eliminate unhealthy levels of stress are also dealt with.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.
