Anxiety can feel debilitating when feelings of fear, worry, or nervousness develop into a day to day excessive, irrational dread and impacts a person’s daily functioning. As a registered psychologist I draw on various approaches to help individuals develop the skills to feel more in control of anxiety and stress. I assist individuals in understanding how anxiety or panic attacks develop and how to manage better by assessing needs, limits, and triggers for anxiety and stress. www.stalbertcounselling.com

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

Stress is a normal part of everyday life. But too much stress can be counter-productive and overwhelming and can lead to the development of anxiety related issues. Stress in children is estimated to have increased 45% over the past 30 years. Building emotional health and resiliency can help children, teens and adults who are struggling with the issues of stress/anxiety regain control and improve their ability to function in every day life again. Learning how to maintain a healthy internal balance in the face of new challenges is the key to embracing the levels of stress we need to grow as individuals.

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.

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.

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 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.

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Devon.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Devon.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Devon.

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.

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.
