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.

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.

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.

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.

Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Redwater.

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.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T6C 0Z8 - Nearby to Redwater.

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.

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.

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.

Some level of anxiety is normal in human beings; however, excessive anxiety can interfere with all areas of life and can take several forms, including phobias, obsessive-compulsions, and panic attacks, Post traumatic stress and is often associated with depression.

Through the process of focusing internally, a person can understand, unravel, and transform their anxiety.

Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Redwater.

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.
