People today choose to do counselling for a variety of reasons. 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. Therapy is for everyone and it is empowering. You may not think so, but seeking the guidance of a professional counsellor or psychotherapist to overcome your concerns is an indicator of individual courage. 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.

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.

In T1S 1A8 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

I work with adults , teenagers, and children experiencing anxiety. The method of treatment I primarily utilize is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). I will be running groups for children ages 8-12 and teenagers ages 13-17 (or almost 18) one to two times per year, depending on interest). I also incorporate stress-reducing techniques which will be demonstrated in session. I also work with individuals experiencing burnout, including work-related and caregiver burnout. Most clients state that they do notice a difference in as little as three sessions.

Carol Korenowski, MC, CCC

Registered Provisional Psychologist & Certified Canadian Counsellor

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T1S 1B3 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

Having served as a chaplain in an active war zone, Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) has first-hand insight into PTSD and anxiety disorders. As a psychopharmacologist he is uniquely equipped to assist you in knowing when medication is required, and when the stress can be managed without medication. Some anxiety disorders (like OCD) needs to be pharmacologically treated first before therapy will be helpful; others (like general anxiety and/or phobias) can often be effectively treated with therapy, avoiding the side-effects of the medication. Your anxiety disorders can be effectively treated!

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.

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. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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.

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)

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....

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.

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.

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.

Negative thinking will be a large area we will focus on.

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.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.
