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.

Having feelings of anxiety is a natural human response to stress. However, when anxiety brings constant high levels of agitation, feelings of having no control, avoiding or suppressing your emotions, or fear of fear itself, anxiety becomes debilitating. Therapy, using emotional focussed and attachment models, will help you understand where in your life experiences these overwhelming emotions were established. The goal of therapy is to develop emotional balance and the ability to manage your environment and your vulnerabilities in a secure and healthy way.

Stress is the body’s natural reaction to danger. It’s meant to help identify a problem that needs your attention to fix. However, when the stress lasts too long, it can start to impact our physical and mental health. In my practice we look at understanding the root of all stress or anxiety and together we create practical, meaningful coping strategies.

How do you know if you are experiencing 'normal' stress or have crossed the line into the 'isolating' world of anxiety and panic? Alongside compassionate and non-judgemental care most of us just need some extra support and helpful tools to help weather what can often be a life-long journey. Special emphasis is put on understanding internal and external cues of anxiety and stress.

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.

Everybody suffers from stress at some points and key to reducing stress is to notice it by increasing our somatic awareness skills and engaging in habits and practices that help regulate the nervous system. Based on Internal Family Systems, an individual contains a multiplicity of relatively discrete minds, each of which has qualities that play a valuable role within the personality. So the next time something happens and you stress out, ask yourself: is this all of me that is stressed out, or just a part of me? Research suggests that this approach of mindful awareness, noticing the part that is stressed out, instead of just being fully in the stress, has a regulatory affect on the nervous system. I use, Internal Family Systems, CBT and tapping to improve your emotion regulation skills.

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.

Struggles with Anxiety and distress can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing these issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when these are present as ithey impact the very mechanisms we use to cope.

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 order to effectively manage anxiety, worries and stress, one needs to learn to reduce and relax the amygdala’s fear and panic response. Adopting a mindfulness mindset, paired with stress reduction techniques, are one of the best antidotes to being carried away or paralyzed by stress, worries and anxiety. By practicing mindfulness-based activities and tools specifically designed to combat and better manage the effects of stress and anxiety, you will release the heavy burden they can cause. You will learn how to more peacefully coexist with your thoughts and your emotions in the present moment, thus creating a state of inner calm to help contain and lower your stress, worries and anxiety.
