Oddly enough, being in touch with anxiety or stress can be an effective signal that something is "wrong in the system", and that change is called for to right it. Sometimes, however, anxiety interferes with daily functioning and leads to substantial discomfort, anguish, and even disabling fear. Beyond the recognition that this condition is sometimes best addressed with medication that reduces symptoms, it is important to explore anxiety's triggers and the factors that serve to empower it further in order to moderate its influence on us. Increased awareness, mindfulness, and honest challenges of anxiety's "right" to affect us in the way it does are all means of intervention.

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

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 Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

Although anxiety is a natural part of life, it can escalate and begin to interfere with functioning. In these cases, I assist clients to learn ways to gain more control, such as by learning to relax the body, think in ways that do not create additional anxiety, process past experiences that contribute to the anxiety, and identify triggers so that alternate coping strategies can be used. I also work with clients to establish healthy stress management strategies, through exercise, social support, self-care, assertiveness, healthy expression of feelings, and appropriate life balance, so that clients have an overall sense of calm and well-being.

My approach to treating anxiety is based on learning skills and strategies to help you accept instead of get rid of your anxiety. As you stop trying to fight against feeling anxious you will notice that all of your anxiety symptoms become easier and easier to manage. Anxiety is kind of like quick sand the more you fight against it the worse it gets.

I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to treat anxiety and stress. CBT can be powerful in terms of coming to understand entrenched ways of thinking and present opportunities to interrupt these habitual automatic responses and create responses that are less anxiety producing. Relaxation and mindfulness are also powerful tools that enable individuals to reduce anxiety and gain the ability to self sooth. Anxiety is often about fear of loosing control and/or over focus on the future. Mindfulness has the ability through practice to create a space where the individual stays in the present moment and pays attention to, and at times celebrates, what is happening.

Anxiety is a healthy, normal, and natural response to danger or threat. You can think of any animal and see a similar response when they are threatened. The issue is that human brains have evolved so much that we can actually activate our natural threat response when there is no real danger! We can develop an anxiety response that is maladaptive. You can think of this as a fire alarm that is going off when there is no fire or smoke. Together, we can train your body's "fire alarm" to respond properly to threat.

Anxiety is, simply, put, unrelenting worry that continues after the thing or circumstance you are worrying about is removed or it is the exaggerated worry about something. In anxiety, the sheer size of the worry in relation to the concern, the realistic vs. non-realistic nature of the concern, and the frequency or level of control related to concern matter. OCD relates to obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. Social Anxiety is an intrusive, disruptive fear of people or certain social situations. Often, we see fears of judgement, body image, looking awkward or stupid, as being thematic in social anxiety thoughts. Just to name a few example of how anxiety can present itself.
