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)

Sharon Stopforth, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 4H9 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

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

Master of Social Work

In T2T 0C2 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

Registered Psychologist

Anxiety can be so painful both mentally and physically. This is where I begin my work with clients, on the distressing symptoms. It is important to get these symptoms to a manageable level so that people can resume their lives. I use a variety of tools to help bring relief starting in the first session. Once the symptoms have begun to decrease we explore the deeper root causes of anxiety to ensure that these symptoms do not return. So that clients can live a life without distressing anxiety.

Cobb & Associates Inc., R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T2V 2Y6 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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 can be very distressing and lead to all sorts of physiological symptoms such as heart palpitations, sleep issues, fear, panic, and shortness of breath. Often times the source of the anxiety can be discovered by carefully examining our thought processes and discovering what past or future events are causing us distress. Sometimes learning new techniques of breathing and mindfulness can help soothe us when our anxious mind kicks into gear.

Anxiety Counsellor

Valiant Recovery, CCCCA

Residential Addiction Program

In T2V 0P7 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

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....

Registered Psychologist

In T2G 0A2 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T3E 7J4 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

Anxiety and stress are a normal part of life, as they warn you that there is something to pay attention to. However, excessive amounts of anxiety can cause you to feel overwhelmed, which may interfere with daily functioning. These concerns can also cause problems in relationships and other areas of life, which often increases stress levels even more. When working with clients the root of the problem is explored, and I also teach skills to relax, how to change negative thinking patterns, and ways to manage stress in a healthy way when it does occur.

Think about what you are struggling with in the moment; it may be depression, anxiety, or it may be something like wanting to change jobs, finding motivation, or building confidence.

In a warm, supportive and non-judgmental environment, you will gain new skills to cope with your challenges. The process of therapy can help shift your perception and change unhelpful patterns of behaviour into meaning growth and empowerment.
