Some stress and worry are part of life. But stress can become excessive. And while worry can help (e.g., it motivates realistic planning) — anxiety is its distorted mirror: It comes uninvited and make things worse. I can help you sort through your situation and your responses to it. First, how difficult is it for you and what makes it so? This is so individual: What’s an energizing challenge for one person can be awfully stressful for another. And if you are overwhelmed, nothing feels like an energizing challenge. Second, we look at the ways you manage stress or anxiety: Together, we identify your strengths, areas for improvement, and coping strategies to add to your skill set.

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.

I approach anxiety differently from many therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against the anxious thoughts and feelings, I encourage people to explore what is feeding and maintaining them. They develop tools and strategies to move forward despite their paralyzing thoughts and feelings. We learn how to change behaviour based on what is most important to us rather than continuing to be held hostage by stress, panic and anxiety. This values-driven approach can guide behaviour change long-term. I believe that it is only through acceptance and thoroughly understanding our feelings that changes can really happen.

Stress is when our old coping strategies are ineffective to help us with our current challenges in life. Stress management is about adapting to the challenges before us and this is not always easy. At times, our stress is magnified by anxiety and anxiety is based in fear. One of the strategies I teach clients is to ask themselves is it anxiety? Is it a genuine and imminent danger to you? When it's anxiety then I have strategies to help you evaluate your stressors and your environment to reduce the impact on your day to day life.

Registered Psychologist

Suite #226 Westhills Corporate Centre, 7370 Sierra Morena Blvd SW, Calgary, Alberta T3H 4H9 | 403-701-4148

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.

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.

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!

While you may have heard many times that it’s what you do with stress that counts, this often feels easier said than done. We vary in our physiological sensitivity to stress, and our past experiences and belief systems can also contribute greatly to our experience of current stressors. Exploring and unpacking what you most deeply believe about the experience of living in this world and being in relationship to others is part of my approach to working with anxiety and chronic stress, as beliefs can be modified in the direction of being less limiting and more life enhancing. Teaching you to be able to better regulate your body's response to stress is the other part of my work in this area.
