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.

Every one of us experiences some amount of stress or anxiety in our lives. However, when anxiety negatively affects your life such as avoiding situations, difficulties sleeping, constant worrying or repeditive thinking, additional help is often required. Worrying and being fearful can prevent you from having a peaceful life while impacting your physical health. Counselling can help to reduce stress and anxiety by resolving issues and learning how to be your true self.

We live in a high stress culture. Our bodies were designed to deal with short term threats, but in prolonged stress they are unable to recover properly. Furthermore, our bodies may be "programmed" to be more sensitive to stress based on our childhood experiences and even the stresses and traumas of our parents and grandparents. Dealing with prolonged stress and anxiety requires a multifaceted approach: understanding the true sources of the stress, changing patterns of thinking, and adopting lifestyle habits that support physiological recovery and contribute to health and well-being. With the right supports and habits, you can let go of stress and have a healthier and more satisfying life

Oddly enough, being in touch with anxiety or stress can be an effective signal that something is "wrong in the system", and that change is called for to right it. Sometimes, however, anxiety interferes with daily functioning and leads to substantial discomfort, anguish, and even disabling fear. Beyond the recognition that this condition is sometimes best addressed with medication that reduces symptoms, it is important to explore anxiety's triggers and the factors that serve to empower it further in order to moderate its influence on us. Increased awareness, mindfulness, and honest challenges of anxiety's "right" to affect us in the way it does are all means of intervention.

Anxiety is a persistent fear about the future and the treatment is to learn to live in the present and face what scares us even though we are feeling fear about it. This takes time to learn and can be very uncomfortable. I use strategies to support the process of learning that fear will pass including mindfulness, self-talk and graduated exposure to anxiety inducing thoughts and activities.

In T5S 1L2 - Nearby to Gibbons.

Stressful situations can trigger anxiety, but I generally view stress as a group of external factors that an individual finds overwhelming, and anxiety as a physical symptom of internal pain or fear. In my practice, therefore, I treat these two issues separately: helping you to identify those events or situations that overwhelm you and put into place strategies to manage stress. I will work with you to understand the driving force underneath your anxiety symptoms so that they become a useful tool to alert you to your unique inner experience.

Anxiety and stress bring physiological changes in the brain and body, activating our primitive threat system. Modern stress tests the threat system in ever new ways and impedes our ability to process information effectively to be productive. Through counselling and practical strategies, we recruit the brain’s soothe system for self-regulation. As we gain experience in handling distress, we become able to maintain our effectiveness in the face of challenge and calm the threat system response.

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.
