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.

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.

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.

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.

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....

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. .

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.

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.

Contrary to popular thought, anxiety isn’t a bad feeling. It can work in our favour to warn us against bad or scary situations and can help us know when and if we should be worried. Often though, the anxiety alarm can go off in safe or every day situations, resulting in mis-cueing us that something is wrong and telling us we should feel stress in these moments. I use several different approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), to work through the mis-cueing of anxiety, slowing down thoughts, understanding the psycho-somatic responses (how and where we feel it in our body) and why you are feeling anxious when we do.

Registered Psychologist

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.

Sometimes we are affected by anxiety - could be mild or a full blown panic attack. We notice that our thoughts race 'by themselves', our heart rate is elevated, our palms may be sweaty, we are restless and have a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep. In counselling you can learn to stand up to anxiety, to identify your various responses to stressors and find effective ways to change the ways you think and feel. Learn ways to express your worries, fears and concerns and ways to get your needs met.

Registered Psychologist

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.

How do you know if you are experiencing 'normal' stress or have crossed the line into the 'isolating' world of anxiety and panic? Alongside compassionate and non-judgemental care most of us just need some extra support and helpful tools to help weather what can often be a life-long journey. Special emphasis is put on understanding internal and external cues of anxiety and stress.

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.
