In T2J 3Z3 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Anxiety interventions, such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), help you to fully understand your symptoms, how your thoughts, emotions and behaviours contribute to anxiety symptoms. I will work with you to develop a plan to help address and minimize the anxious symptoms, while also finding increased ways to cope. I also specialize in burnout prevention and helping you to achieve self-care that eliminates the chronic stress impacting your everyday life. This will benefit you as you will learn to find a way to prevent/manage the anxiety and how to complete the stress cycle allowing you to find balance and peace.

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 T2E 0S9 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Anxiety sometimes feels like a normal piece of life, but often it actually is beyond what would be considered healthy. People may think that they can 'tough' through the pain or that it will eventually go away. Even if this is true, counselling can help expedite the process and teach coping tools you might not have previously had. Likewise, if your anxiety is severe, you don't have to continue living like that. Help and healing is possible.

Registered Psychologist

In T2R 1E8 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Fear, doubt, worry? Butterflies in the stomach? Anxiety affects 5% of the population, and is one of the oldest and most common mental health challenges around. 60% of the physical issues that take people to a doctor's office are related to stress. Many people want symptom relief, which I do, but how it shows up in your life is individual to you. I explore your life and work with you to unearth 'holistic' roots that may be keeping it in place.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

We all know what anxiety feels like. Our heart pounds before a big presentation or a tough exam. We get butterflies in our stomach during a blind date. We worry and fret over family problems or feel jittery at the prospect of asking the boss for a raise. However, if worries and fears are preventing you from living your life the way you'd like to, you may be suffering from an anxiety disorder. There are six major types of anxiety disorders, each with their own distinct symptom profile: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. The good news is there are many anxiety treatments and self-help stra....

In T2T 0A1 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Laura Romero, MC, RPsych

Registered Psychologist

In T3C 0X7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Identifying that there are aspects of the 'self' that require attention is the first step in reducing stress and anxiety. The ability to self-reflect and acknowledge that shifts need to be made are the building blocks of change . Making sense of meaning and purpose in one's life is linked to resiliency as is understanding the difference between internal versus external locus of control. These are all things I explore with my clients suffering from stress and anxiety.

Social Confidence Life Coach

In T2L 1E6 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

In T2P 3C5 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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. .

Bow Valley Counselling, BA, BSW, MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

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. If your anxiety is affecting your life and you feel that it’s time to start taking anxiety-reducing medications, learning about the anxiety therapy options in Calgary that are available and trying some anxiety management techniques may be a viable alternative.

In T3M 1H5 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

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.

Brenda Duncan, MSW RSW

Clinical Social Worker

In T2M 0M6 - Nearby to Forest Lawn.

Anxiety and stress seem so common today, that they may seem to be unavoidable. I can tell you that you will be able to change the way you feel. At it's heart, anxiety is a warning system that something is wrong, but if it dominates your life, often you can't tell the difference between a minor blip and a major catastrophe. It's all overwhelming. Stress to some extent motivates you, but over a certain threshold can paralyze you. I have worked for many years with anxiety and stress, and will help you to negotiate through the challenges of bringing them back within your control. You can develop the understanding and skills to thrive in a challenging world.

Healthy anxiety is a transient response to stress. It prompts us to use coping skills. Sometimes anxiety becomes persistent, unreasonable and excessive, even to the point of a panic attack. The cause may be overwhelming stress, abuse, separation or loss, or a traumatic event. Unhealthy anxiety can lead to great distress, difficulty with daily life, relationship problems, avoidance of people, places and situations, and time-consuming habits. Treatment can help you: • develop strategies to manage stress and anxiety • conquer worrying • relate to others in healthy ways without fear of rejection or being evaluated negatively • recover from past trauma • get back to living life
