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.

My approach to working with anxiety and stress is body focused. Most people can "feel" anxiety and stress in their bodies thus I use the body's stress cues to teach us what the limits are. I would focus on listening and learning the body's cues and then teaching clients' how to physically "bring yourself down" from the elevated state of arousal that anxiety and stress cause.

Valiant Recovery, CCCCA

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Calmar.

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.

Coping with stress and management of anxious thoughts and feelings is a challenge for many clients. We examine the ways that stress can affect the physical body and seek direct ways to mitigate these problems, such as breathing retraining and thought distancing. Often, we focus on building a hierarchy of fears and gradual exposure to these fears. We also work on management of physical reactions, such as panic.

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.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T6C 0Z8 - Nearby to Calmar.

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.

I use thought challenges, psychoeducation, and coping skills to help clients interrupt racing thoughts and evaluate their thinking processes. Part of controlling these thoughts includes understanding their origin and progression. It is not always easy to slow down our thoughts and process our worries from a more clear perspective, but I aim to guide clients in this direction.

Research has revealed that time spent with animals is directly related to a reduction in anxiety. Interactions with our horses might include grooming, deep breathing, muscle relaxation, and visualizations. These skills can help decrease and replace negative and sometimes dangerous responses to anxiety (i.e., cutting, substance abuse). The individual might be paired with a horse who is also anxious. In turn, they help one other find ways to work through their emotions.

Anxiety is normal. Most people are anxious from time to time. Some amount of anxiety and stress people motivates people to change and grow. But for most, excessive anxiety and can inhibit development. Anxiety can be a learned response going back to childhood but for what ever reason you feel anxiety it never too late to learn to manage and overcome anxiety with methods of self-care, while understanding what is happening and why. Anxiety is often an indication that you have important needs that aren’t realized. I help you realize what you need, what patterns you may be repeating and why. Then I find new ways to address your needs to make the necessary changes to feel good, calm and secure.

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Calmar.

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.

In T6M 1G1 - Nearby to Calmar.

You can’t sleep, it’s hard to concentrate, you’re quick to anger and irritable all the time. At its worst anxiety and stress can lead to feeling unable to breathe and wanting to jump out of your own skin: system overload. Stress is known to increase the risk of emotional, mental and physical problems. Anxiety clues us in to the need to take care of whatever is causing us distress such as unresolved emotions, negative thoughts, unhealthy behaviours, or unsupportive relationships. I help you identify, clarify and resolve distress and anxiety so you can regain a sense of optimism, balance and enjoyment.

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.
