Deanne Elsner, MSW, RSW

Masters of Social Work with Clinical Specialization

In T4C 0W7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Deanne has extensive experience working with mental health issues, such as anxiety, OCD, social anxiety and panic. Stress and anxiety are the most common problems in our modern world and manifests as either over functioning (perfectionism) or under functioning (procrastination). Deanne feels that anxiety is at it’s core an adaptive neurological reactions to threat. It’s an early alarm system that allows us to stay safe. However, this adaptive system gets hijacked and the alarm starts going off all the time. Deanne draws on both bottom up (relaxation exercises, grounding and mindfulness) and top down (cognitive restructuring) approaches to working with anxiety.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2Z 3W9 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

When anxiety and stress become too heavy for us to carry on our own, it is helpful to seek professional support. Anxiety and stress are both normal, adaptive human emotions. However, when anxiety and stress become chronic they get in the way of living a meaningful and truly fulfilling life. In learning to cope with anxiety we will work on increasing awareness of your experience of anxiety. We will approach anxiety with acceptance and curiosity to understand the root. Most importantly, I will create an emotionally safe environment in which you will learn new strategies for responding to anxiety.

Everyone experiences stress and anxiety at different points. With the high number of competing demands in our society, often these feelings can become increasingly present and start to interfere with our daily life. They can invade our mind and body and cause us to experience a myriad of symptoms such as: constant worries, irrational fears, sleeplessness, muscle tension, rapid heart rate and muscle tension. I work to support those struggling to uncover, understand and address the roots of their anxiety. I also help them to learn a variety of stress-management, relaxation techniques and self-care techniques so they are better equipped to manage life's inevitable challenges in the future.

Registered Psychologist & Certified Canadian Counsellor

In T2P 2M5 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

When the body and mind have learned that a calm internal state is not safe, it remains in a state of alert, alarm, fear, or terror to meet it's needs. I believe anxiety is a coping style that has helped keep you safe and alive in the past, but might no longer be helpful or necessary. I can help you better understand your experience, regulate and calm, and adopt new ways of coping with stress.

Anxiety and stress take a hold on you and never let go, leaving you trapped and frozen. I help my clients to learn all about the magic of mindfulness practice. It's one of the most effective ways to put you in control of your emotions, rather than them controlling you. Imagine how great it would be to have an internal place of peace and serenity that you can use at any time to relax and become grounded. Mindfulness is an ancient practice that is also supported by scientific empirical studies. It's one of the best ways to change your life.

Stressors and anxiety are a normal part of life. It is how you respond to the changes that life sends your way that makes the difference between being resilient or unhealthy. Distinguishing between unhealthy and healthy anxiety and learning to effectively manage stressors are key life skills. Also what we tell ourselves about a given situation has a lot to do with how we manage it. Together we will explore your stressors and work at eliminating your ineffective beliefs and developing ways to manage difficult situations more effectively. .

Does it sometimes feel like anxiety is a monster that seems to have control over your life? That stress has a stranglehold on you? That everything you do is organized around avoiding the intrusion of these awful feelings? That you feel so powerless to change any of it that you are ready to explode. And sometimes are afraid you will. Feelings of anxiety are incredibly uncomfortable, intense, overwhelming at times and even terrifying. They can overwhelm our thoughts leaving us unable to think about nothing more than worries we have about the future and what could happen, or horrible reruns of what has already happened in the past. We begin to turn all our resources toward avoiding these thoughts and feelings. The more effort we take to avoid feeling...(view profile to read more)

In T3M 1H5 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Anxiety as a result of stress is one of, if not the major contributing factor to poor health in most areas of people lives. If you have ever been tense before an exam or a visit to the dentist, you have a felt anxiety. Increased heart rate, sweating, rapid breathing, dry mouth, & a sense of dread are common. Changing this involves cognitive & behavioural approaches. Cognitive change is understanding how thoughts contribute to symptoms and how to change thought patterns to reduce the intensity of your anxiety. And behavioral changes involve using techniques to reduce or stop any undesired behaviors that are a result of the anxiety you have been experiencing.

Bow Valley Counselling, BA, BSW, MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

I approach anxiety differently from many therapists. Instead of struggling to fight against the anxious thoughts and feelings, I encourage people to explore what is feeding and maintaining them. They develop tools and strategies to move forward despite their paralyzing thoughts and feelings. We learn how to change behaviour based on what is most important to us rather than continuing to be held hostage by stress, panic and anxiety. This values-driven approach can guide behaviour change long-term. I believe that it is only through acceptance and thoroughly understanding our feelings that changes can really happen.

Learning to manage anxiety and stress involves learning a little about the connection between mind and body. As a registered yoga teacher with a strong background in mindful interventions, clients can learn to alleviate stress and anxiety by grounding themselves in the present and using breath, and sometimes movement, to regulate their physical and emotional states. My clients can elect to try private yoga and/or meditation in session, or join one of my specialized classes for trauma survivors, couples, or families. Depending on the source of stress, clients may access help in problem solving, generating realistic solutions, and putting their plan into action.

Registered Psychologist

In T2S 3B1 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Unfortunately with our incredibly fast paced society, anxiety and stress have become all-too-familiar struggles for all ages. People feel pressure from the many commitments in their lives, and with the beauty and curse of technology, we often feel we cannot get a break. It has become imperative that we learn ways of managing our anxiety and stress, and of slowing down our systems so that they do not get to a point of explosion. Many people enter into therapy at such a point, and we work hard to create a space where they can breathe and learn strategies for coping, as well as re-narrating old patterns.

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.

In order to effectively manage anxiety, worries and stress, one needs to learn to reduce and relax the amygdala’s fear and panic response. Adopting a mindfulness mindset, paired with stress reduction techniques, are one of the best antidotes to being carried away or paralyzed by stress, worries and anxiety. By practicing mindfulness-based activities and tools specifically designed to combat and better manage the effects of stress and anxiety, you will release the heavy burden they can cause. You will learn how to more peacefully coexist with your thoughts and your emotions in the present moment, thus creating a state of inner calm to help contain and lower your stress, worries and anxiety.
