Some stress and worry are part of life. But stress can become excessive. And while worry can help (e.g., it motivates realistic planning) — anxiety is its distorted mirror: It comes uninvited and make things worse. I can help you sort through your situation and your responses to it. First, how difficult is it for you and what makes it so? This is so individual: What’s an energizing challenge for one person can be awfully stressful for another. And if you are overwhelmed, nothing feels like an energizing challenge. Second, we look at the ways you manage stress or anxiety: Together, we identify your strengths, areas for improvement, and coping strategies to add to your skill set.

Stress and anxiety often get in the way of how and who we want to be. Stress can trap us where we are at, keeping us from growing, and anxiety can leave us crippled as we face the future. However, stress and anxiety happen for a reason. Through approaching our stress, mitigating the effects and learning ways to calm our systems we can both overcome our anxiety and insulate ourselves to future stress.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is a natural fit for anxiety and stress treatment because it helps you make sense of overwhelming problems and break them down into more manageable pieces. Your thoughts have an impact on how you feel both physically and emotionally and over-active stress can have a real consequences.

Feeling anxious and experiencing stress are normal and healthy human experiences. However, both anxiety and stress can get out of control in our lives and can cause incredible challenges that lead to feeling overwhelmed and out of control. You may be experiencing the negative impact of overwhelming stress and anxiety in your life right now, and you may even feel like life is slipping out of your control. You and I will work together to restore control, to reduce the unhelpful influence of stress and anxiety, and to help you to return to living a life that reflects who you want to be.

Stress is a reality of the busy world we live in. However, anxiety doesn't need to be. I will help you look at three key aspects of stress and anxiety. First, is the anxiety you experience longterm or has it resulted from a new circumstance. Secondly, what are some skills you can implement to manage your anxiety. And ultimately if the anxiety is longterm, what are the root issues and belief systems that can be changed to bring peace to your life.

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.

Valiant Recovery, CCCCA

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Gibbons.

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.
