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.

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.

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.

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.

Anxiety is one of the most common reasons people seek therapy. Anxiety is defined as nervousness and an inability to relax. Some level of anxiety is normal in human beings; however, excessive anxiety can interfere with all areas of life and can take several forms, including phobias, obsessive-compulsions, and panic attacks, Post traumatic stress and is often associated with depression. Therapy approaches a person's anxiety with intense curiosity in an effort to help the person understand and heal the source of the anxiety. Through the process of focusing internally, a person can understand, unravel, and transform their anxiety.

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.

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

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.

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.

Anxiety and stress can be overwhelming experiences that take away a sense of control. Emma's systemic perspective explores the development of anxiety and contributing factors like genetics or environment, along with triggers that maintain it. She uses cognitive behavioural therapy to look at the thought processes behind anxiety, and then how those thoughts affect feelings and behaviours. Furthermore, she shows how anxiety and stress also impact them on a physiological level. Emma reviews coping strategies to gain control of anxiety and stress, and also addresses boundaries, self-esteem and assertiveness to help deal with stress and create a better balance in life

Anxiety and stress are experienced by most psychotherapy clients who come here. People usually find my approach helpful whether or not they identify anxiety/stress as a primary condition for treatment. I always aim to adjust my treatment approach to the individual characteristics and needs of my client. Sometimes situations and systems can be addressed and improved; sometimes all that a person can change is their own attitude. I am able to use verbal, visusalization, and altered state strategies for helping people grow past fear.

Canadian Certified Counselor

In T5S 1L2 - Nearby to Devon.

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.
