At first, I explore the trigger(s) to the stress and anxiety in an attempt to decide whether treatment requires appropriate medication prescribed by a physician in conjunction with treatment and counseling or therapy alone. My therapy includes "talk therapy" and relaxation/hypnosis. This decision is made together with the client. As well we work together to develop coping mechanisms to deal with the anxiety as stress in very much part of today's life. I

Stress is a reality of the busy world we live in. However, anxiety doesn't need to be. I will help you look at three key aspects of stress and anxiety. First, is the anxiety you experience longterm or has it resulted from a new circumstance. Secondly, what are some skills you can implement to manage your anxiety. And ultimately if the anxiety is longterm, what are the root issues and belief systems that can be changed to bring peace to your life.

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.

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.

Using an Emotion Focused Therapy approach, I begin with the idea that all emotions, including anxiety, has a purpose. Difficulties come when the stress reaction to a possible danger is either too big (anxiety) or too small (depression). When people feel overwhelming anxiety, or stress that is out of proportion to the danger, it is often because there is something else that is causing the stress. Therapy is about listening to the voice of the anxiety and finding appropriate reactions.

As a psychologist I try to provide a safe, confidential environment within which my clients can explore their feelings and values. People seek therapy when they are in pain, when they feel overwhelmed by stress and when they are struggling in relationships. I try to help my clients to resolve these issues by looking within themselves and by allowing debilitating wounds to heal.

Justin preferred to be at home with his Mom and hated going to school. He felt like he didn't have any friends and was extremely anxious about fitting in. He had headaches and stomach aches all the time and his Mom often allowed him to stay home. He was beginning to fall behind. Play sessions with both Justin and his Mom brought change. I brought them into my playroom and I taught the mother how to be the therapist. She learned to create a nurturing environment and tell Justin "I hear you, I see you, I understand, I care and I am here." Justin's anxiety slowly went away, his attendance increased too, but, better than that his relationship with his Mom improved.

We live in a high stress culture. Our bodies were designed to deal with short term threats, but in prolonged stress they are unable to recover properly. Furthermore, our bodies may be "programmed" to be more sensitive to stress based on our childhood experiences and even the stresses and traumas of our parents and grandparents. Dealing with prolonged stress and anxiety requires a multifaceted approach: understanding the true sources of the stress, changing patterns of thinking, and adopting lifestyle habits that support physiological recovery and contribute to health and well-being. With the right supports and habits, you can let go of stress and have a healthier and more satisfying life

Anxiety and stress are two things I know very well, both from a Psychological standpoint and a personal one. When treating these issues, I tackle symptoms through multiple theories that focus on the mind, body and emotions. This way we have many different strategies and techniques to rely on when times get tough!

Anxiety and stress are not the enemy - this emotional experience is natural. We will work on understanding how you conceptualize the internal physiological responses and practicing new ways of approaching, accepting, and experimenting with your worries, fears, and anxieties. The hard work of exposure therapy can sometimes be beneficial, and I can answer all your questions about this therapy and recommend if it may be helpful for you.

Every one of us experiences some amount of stress or anxiety in our lives. However, when anxiety negatively affects your life such as avoiding situations, difficulties sleeping, constant worrying or repeditive thinking, additional help is often required. Worrying and being fearful can prevent you from having a peaceful life while impacting your physical health. Counselling can help to reduce stress and anxiety by resolving issues and learning how to be your true self.

Unfortunately, anxiety and stress are all-too-common occurrences in modern life. in my work with clients, I take a holistic approach to anxiety. This means that we implement techniques to target the body, mind, emotion, and spirit. I have found my training in Somatic Experiencing (a trauma therapy) to be of great benefit when working with clients, because Somatic Experiencing incorporates a biological understanding of the body and stress. I also utilize approaches from Mindfulness, Cognitive Therapy (including exposure techniques), and Solution-Focused Therapy. In my opinion, anxiety and stress are very treatable issues and I enjoy working with them.
