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.

Feeling anxious and experiencing stress are normal and healthy human experiences. However, both anxiety and stress can get out of control in our lives and can cause incredible challenges that lead to feeling overwhelmed and out of control. You may be experiencing the negative impact of overwhelming stress and anxiety in your life right now, and you may even feel like life is slipping out of your control. You and I will work together to restore control, to reduce the unhelpful influence of stress and anxiety, and to help you to return to living a life that reflects who you want to be.

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.

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.

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.

We live in a fast passed society with a lot of time lines and pressures. Many people are unaware of how their approach to these stressors can increase the sensations of anxiety. Fortunately, there are many ways of decreasing anxiety. Identifying ways of thinking and behaving that increase anxiety introduces the possibility of change. It is life changing to discover that the fearful thoughts and beliefs that have been leading you to anxiety, can be uncovered and transformed into more helpful beliefs that enable you to feel happier and improve relationships.

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.

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.

Most people do not like feeling anxious or stressed. People are not saying I am glad to be stressed or anxious. What do we do when this happens. We need to process it and for most people counselling is a place for processing. Along with processing stress and anxiety comes a deeper longing to to be heard and validated and to sometimes be given new skills or strategies. What ever you need whether an ear to listen, heart to understand or ideas for coping with it I can provide it in comfortable environment.

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.

AnneMarie Whitton, M.Sc. (MFT)

Registered Psychologist

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.

Stressful situations can trigger anxiety, but I generally view stress as a group of external factors that an individual finds overwhelming, and anxiety as a physical symptom of internal pain or fear. In my practice, therefore, I treat these two issues separately: helping you to identify those events or situations that overwhelm you and put into place strategies to manage stress. I will work with you to understand the driving force underneath your anxiety symptoms so that they become a useful tool to alert you to your unique inner experience.

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.
