I am a counsellor with a special interest in perinatal mental health. Many perinatal women experience stress and anxiety during pregnancy and postpartum. I work with women, and their families, to minimize the detrimental impact of anxiety on the transition to motherhood and the early parenting years. Counselling during pregnancy and the postpartum period is intended to reduce emotional distress for perinatal women, their infants, and the whole family system.

Most people do not like feeling anxious or stressed. People are not saying I am glad to be stressed or anxious. What do we do when this happens. We need to process it and for most people counselling is a place for processing. Along with processing stress and anxiety comes a deeper longing to to be heard and validated and to sometimes be given new skills or strategies. What ever you need whether an ear to listen, heart to understand or ideas for coping with it I can provide it in comfortable environment.

I understand the difficulties and frustrations that anxiety and stress can have on your physical, emotional, mental health and impact it may have on your personal relationships. Interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy, relaxation exercises to reduce the physiological symptoms of anxiety, and other modalities that may be effective for you can be explored as we review your own personal goals and needs in therapy.

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.

Your anxiety disorders can be effectively treated!

In T3M 1H5 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

Cheryl Placsko, MA, R.Psych

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.

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....

Counselling Psychologist

In T3E 7V3 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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)

Anxiety Counsellor

Kathryn Dodds, RPC in Psychotherapy

Psychotherapist/Counsellor/ Life Coach

In T3H 4J8 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

In my professional and personal experience I have found that problems with anxiety, stress, depression, and anger issues are often overlapping. Many people feel mixed emotions of fear, worry, pressure, frustration, guilt, shame and low self worth. Unfortunately we have a tendency to doubt our abilities and our value which can quickly become a 'self fulfilling prophecy' and cause us to judge ourselves harshly, and/or isolate from others. This can become a cycle but it can often be broken by speaking openly with a professional who is competent, kind and encouraging. I am diligent in helping clients identify the false core beliefs and establish new beliefs that empower them again.

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.

Struggling with anxiety and stress is very difficult. It influences every area of life. There are many factors that cause anxiety and stress. Therefore, when treating someone who is struggling with anxiety I start by examining their whole life to get a good understanding of all the factors that are contributing it. To reduce stigma and to help them understand themselves I will explain what is happening in their brain when they are anxious. The goals of the sessions will be focused on addressing their beliefs about themselves, others and the world, developing helpful coping strategies and emotional processing and regulation.

Often times symptoms of anxiety are misinterpreted as some other physical ailment. I frequently receive doctor referrals for clients who sought medical treatment and who are surprised to learn that they are not experiencing medical problems. My approach to anxiety is demystify the anxiety response and to help my clients develop practical cognitive-behavioural strategies to reduce the perceived threat in their environment while developing effective coping strategies to bring about a state of relaxation and control.

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.

In T2T 3S9 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.
