Anxiety. Fear. Worry. Stress. Do these words seem all to familiar in your life? When faced with a multitude of responsibilities, long "to-do" lists, relationship demands, and meeting the expectations of others and ourselves, we may find ourselves unable to function, let alone enjoy life. We may be filled with self-doubt, especially when playing the "comparison game." Some people turn to substances such as alcohol and drugs to cope. Others work too many hours or engage in destructive or compulsive behaviors. Fortunately, there are healthy and productive ways to break the hold anxiety has on you and meet life on your terms. Let me help you to manage life demands and find peace again.

Anxiety and stress are a natural part of life, we all feel anxiety and stress at multiple points in our life. Anxiety and stress come to visit us because they are trying to tell us something and we need to acknowledge what is going on for us. Anxiety often comes to protect us and keep us safe and yet we do everything we can to remove it from our life, even when it may be there for a valid reason. Together using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy I help clients struggling with Anxiety and Stress.

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 3C5 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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. .

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

Lynne Goertzen, MA, CSAT, CMAT, RRT

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Anxiety is a normal, human response to stressful events that we each experience at times ... like delivering a speech (or presentation at work or narrowly avoiding a car accident. It becomes a problem when we feel anxious a LOT, or our response is out of all proportion to the situation, or we avoid the provoking situation/thing, and it interferes with our day-to-day lives. Anxiety is treatable. I can help you reduce your stress response, manage your physiological responses (like breathing), change your thinking about the feared event, and build your repertoire of self-care and relaxation-enhancing activities -- all of which will reduce your anxiety and enhance your quality of life.

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 4H9 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Anxiety and stress can be effectively managed with a shift in perspective and behaviours used to cope. I help clients learn the strategies necessary to change the meaning they make of situations and master physiological tension and anxiety. It is impossible to be relaxed and anxious at the same time. Then clients are taught to master their thinking and free themselves from stranglehold of anxiety and stress.

Cathryn Hanssen, Psy.D., CSAT

Registered Psychologist

In T3E 7J4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Anxiety and stress are a normal part of life, as they warn you that there is something to pay attention to. However, excessive amounts of anxiety can cause you to feel overwhelmed, which may interfere with daily functioning. These concerns can also cause problems in relationships and other areas of life, which often increases stress levels even more. When working with clients the root of the problem is explored, and I also teach skills to relax, how to change negative thinking patterns, and ways to manage stress in a healthy way when it does occur.

In T3G 5G8 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

In the therapy time anxiety and stress are explored. People with strong levels of anxiety and panic can find relief from the feelings. After the sessions, people often find that they do not need to avoid a variety of people or situations they previously avoided that led to the anxiety. They may also learn how to manage and eventually experience minor levels or no anxiety at all. Stress and methods to reduce and eliminate unhealthy levels of stress are also dealt with.

Anxiety can be so painful both mentally and physically. This is where I begin my work with clients, on the distressing symptoms. It is important to get these symptoms to a manageable level so that people can resume their lives. I use a variety of tools to help bring relief starting in the first session. Once the symptoms have begun to decrease we explore the deeper root causes of anxiety to ensure that these symptoms do not return. So that clients can live a life without distressing anxiety.

Anxiety and stress are huge factors when it comes to motherhood. Whether you are having your first baby or your third, it is not an easy job, especially today. I work with women to help address what is contributing to their sense of overwhelm so that we can determine where to start. I find by looking at the whole picture we are usually able to decide on a few key areas to begin working on. Once the ball is rolling, the rest comes pretty easily.

Anxiety and stress can make it hard to think clearly, make decisions and find enjoyment in every day activities. While living with some stress is normal, anxiety can get in the way of living your life the way you want. It is difficult to overcome the impact of anxiety without professional help. Many of my clients have tried to cope on their own or with some help, but find that the anxiety never truly goes away. I can help you or your child in identifying the underlying causes of your anxiety, and to learn how to successfully cope with life's challenges and to live more fully.

Master of Social Work

In T2T 0C2 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

We live in a world that gives us the message that to work and manage home life is to be successful, yet the lived experience of this belief leaves many feeling they are stressed and thus "not successful" because they cannot handle the world of ups and downs. We are taught to question ourselves in those moments and not the beliefs we are told about what it means to balance work and life. Furthermore our histories can at times leave us with coping strategies that often lead to stress and anxiety. Meditation has been showing more benefits to individuals dealing with anxiety and stress. I am a certified meditation instructor and use a combination of therapy and mindfulness.

Anxiety is a positive emotion signalling uncertainty and potential danger, and its best contribution occurs when it is temporary and when it is combined with healthy decision-making. At McNaughton & Associates Counselling we will help you gain confidence in recognizing the good work anxiety is doing, and separate it from the "nagging" work that anxiety also likes to do, after all the usefulness is gone.

Registered Social Worker

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Working with clients for 15+ years, I worked extensively with clients who experience anxiety and depression. In my experience anxiety and stress are two different things. Stress is being unable to adequately handle a situation that goes beyond our ability to cope. Stress is normal given an entirely new situation we are faced with such as a new job, etc. This usually requires learning some new coping skills. However, anxiety is a sustained feeling of unease that in its extreme can be experienced as panic or the inability to calm oneself. Often I have found that anxiety that has been sustained for a long time is generally connected to trauma and is best healed by working with the body.

People today choose to do counselling for a variety of reasons. Think about what you are struggling with in the moment; it may be depression, anxiety, or it may be something like wanting to change jobs, finding motivation, or building confidence. Therapy is for everyone and it is empowering. You may not think so, but seeking the guidance of a professional counsellor or psychotherapist to overcome your concerns is an indicator of individual courage. In a warm, supportive and non-judgmental environment, you will gain new skills to cope with your challenges. The process of therapy can help shift your perception and change unhelpful patterns of behaviour into meaning growth and empowerment.

Registered Certified Canadian Counsellor

In T3C 0J5 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Contrary to popular thought, anxiety isn’t a bad feeling. It can work in our favour to warn us against bad or scary situations and can help us know when and if we should be worried. Often though, the anxiety alarm can go off in safe or every day situations, resulting in mis-cueing us that something is wrong and telling us we should feel stress in these moments. I use several different approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), to work through the mis-cueing of anxiety, slowing down thoughts, understanding the psycho-somatic responses (how and where we feel it in our body) and why you are feeling anxious when we do.
