Stress and anxiety are frequent reasons for referrals, and the symptoms are painful and can often debilitate ones ability to function in everyday life. Our treatments are focused on helping people understand how they ended up in this situation, but also how to work your way out of it. The gradual breakdown in coping strategies and the inability to self protect, eventually can lead anyone to high stress levels and anxiety. Anxiety is at it's core ~ loss of self ~ and to regain one's self ~ one has to self protect, restore faith in your ability to pull through and find help.

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.

We live in a fast passed society with a lot of time lines and pressures. Many people are unaware of how their approach to these stressors can increase the sensations of anxiety. Fortunately, there are many ways of decreasing anxiety. Identifying ways of thinking and behaving that increase anxiety introduces the possibility of change. It is life changing to discover that the fearful thoughts and beliefs that have been leading you to anxiety, can be uncovered and transformed into more helpful beliefs that enable you to feel happier and improve relationships.

Coping with stress and management of anxious thoughts and feelings is a challenge for many clients. We examine the ways that stress can affect the physical body and seek direct ways to mitigate these problems, such as breathing retraining and thought distancing. Often, we focus on building a hierarchy of fears and gradual exposure to these fears. We also work on management of physical reactions, such as panic.

Most people do not like feeling anxious or stressed. People are not saying I am glad to be stressed or anxious. What do we do when this happens. We need to process it and for most people counselling is a place for processing. Along with processing stress and anxiety comes a deeper longing to to be heard and validated and to sometimes be given new skills or strategies. What ever you need whether an ear to listen, heart to understand or ideas for coping with it I can provide it in comfortable environment.

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists.

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.

Using an Emotion Focused Therapy approach, I begin with the idea that all emotions, including anxiety, has a purpose. Difficulties come when the stress reaction to a possible danger is either too big (anxiety) or too small (depression). When people feel overwhelming anxiety, or stress that is out of proportion to the danger, it is often because there is something else that is causing the stress. Therapy is about listening to the voice of the anxiety and finding appropriate reactions.

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.

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.

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.

My approach to working with anxiety and stress is body focused. Most people can "feel" anxiety and stress in their bodies thus I use the body's stress cues to teach us what the limits are. I would focus on listening and learning the body's cues and then teaching clients' how to physically "bring yourself down" from the elevated state of arousal that anxiety and stress cause.

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 and stress are normal, healthy and motivating in the right amounts. However, when people come in for these issues, it's usually because the immense stress they are under prevents them from living their best life, and / or is causing harmful effects to the body and mind. I will work with you to identify the early warning signs of stress and develop strategies for coping with or preventing anxiety.

Anxiety is a healthy, normal, and natural response to danger or threat. You can think of any animal and see a similar response when they are threatened. The issue is that human brains have evolved so much that we can actually activate our natural threat response when there is no real danger! We can develop an anxiety response that is maladaptive. You can think of this as a fire alarm that is going off when there is no fire or smoke. Together, we can train your body's "fire alarm" to respond properly to threat.

Anxiety and stress are experienced by most psychotherapy clients who come here. People usually find my approach helpful whether or not they identify anxiety/stress as a primary condition for treatment. I always aim to adjust my treatment approach to the individual characteristics and needs of my client. Sometimes situations and systems can be addressed and improved; sometimes all that a person can change is their own attitude. I am able to use verbal, visusalization, and altered state strategies for helping people grow past fear.

Anxiety and stress can negatively impact client's ability to deal with daily challenges and stressors. Anxiety is excess activation in the nervous system so helping clients to release the activation in turn reduces their anxiety and then they can experience a sense of calm and feeling settled. Toxic stress affects the way we think and perceive reality so addressing the anxiety allows us to retrain the brain to manage the stress and perceived threat which reduces fear, worry, and panic.

Anxiety and stress can be adaptive in small doses- it can help give us the motivation to study harder for a test, or practice before an important presentation. In large doses, however, anxiety can be paralyzing. It can cause us to miss work, have panic attacks, or feel irritable or moody. This is when treatment becomes necessary. We use evidence-based therapy to help you achieve results. We will help you identify your own triggers, and teach you skills and tools that you can use to help you manage your anxiety.
