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.

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.

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.

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.

Stress is something that all individuals experience in life. Healthy stress is meant to motivate us to create the change necessary in life. Anxiety is a reaction to stress. Sometimes anxiety can create feelings of being overwhelmed, fear, dread, worry, restlessness, and uneasiness. Together we focus on gaining control & changing the unwanted old thought into new thought patterns that support change in how a person thinks and reacts to different situations. We focus on effective ways of nurturing self physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. We emphasize the importance of learning how to recognize burnout. We will also work on setting healthy boundaries and how to release control.

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.

Are you afraid of feelings and/or behaviours that you can no longer control? Are you afraid of the future and what it will bring if you cannot change? Without a certain amount of anxiety and stress people will not be motivated to change and grow. But for most, excessive anxiety and stress can inhibit development. In therapy, your anxiety and stress is put into words and feelings. As you use the therapeutic relationship to mitigate your discomfort, that discomfort (along with learned ways of relating to others) transforms.

Anxiety Counsellor

Emma Drebit, MSc. (Marital & Family Therapy)

Registered Psychologist

#320, 9707-110 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T5K 2L9 | 780-886-3030

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

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.

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.

My approach starts with clarifying the biological and psychological mechanics of anxiety and stress. It is important to identify how anxiety works in order to deal effectively with panic, stress and anxiety. I use cognitive behavioural strategies as well as hypnosis, mindfulness, and EMDR to support a client in a change process. Sometimes, anxiety and stress is connected to other issues such as abuse (historical or ongoing) or other trauma and it is important to resolve those issues to reduce anxiety and stress.

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.
