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.

Life can be stressful. Our natural reactions to an environment which is perceived as unsafe is anxiety. Is your world unsafe? Or do your natural reactions cause you to overestimate the danger in the world? Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy is an evidence-based approach which has been shown to be just as helpful (or more) than medications. Learn some skills which you can use for the rest of your life to gain better control over your anxiety.

Stress is a normal, adaptive response to changes in our circumstances and/or environment. Stress can act as a motivator, however when it becomes chronic and overwhelming, it can negatively impact our relationships ourselves, family and friends, our work interests and hobbies, and increase our risk of the development of other psychological and physical health concerns such as anxiety and depression. I assist clients in resolving their anxiety by identifying and understanding symptoms, identifying triggers that increase symptoms, and developing practical day-to-day strategies that provide both short-and-long term relief.

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.

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

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.

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T2C 4J2 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

Struggling with anxiety and stress is very difficult. It influences every area of life. There are many factors that cause anxiety and stress. Therefore, when treating someone who is struggling with anxiety I start by examining their whole life to get a good understanding of all the factors that are contributing it. To reduce stigma and to help them understand themselves I will explain what is happening in their brain when they are anxious. The goals of the sessions will be focused on addressing their beliefs about themselves, others and the world, developing helpful coping strategies and emotional processing and regulation.

In T2S 3B1 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

Unfortunately with our incredibly fast paced society, anxiety and stress have become all-too-familiar struggles for all ages. People feel pressure from the many commitments in their lives, and with the beauty and curse of technology, we often feel we cannot get a break. It has become imperative that we learn ways of managing our anxiety and stress, and of slowing down our systems so that they do not get to a point of explosion. Many people enter into therapy at such a point, and we work hard to create a space where they can breathe and learn strategies for coping, as well as re-narrating old patterns.

Sharon Stopforth, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker

In T2X 1M2 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

Working with clients for 15+ years, I worked extensively with clients who experience anxiety and depression. In my experience anxiety and stress are two different things. Stress is being unable to adequately handle a situation that goes beyond our ability to cope. Stress is normal given an entirely new situation we are faced with such as a new job, etc. This usually requires learning some new coping skills. However, anxiety is a sustained feeling of unease that in its extreme can be experienced as panic or the inability to calm oneself. Often I have found that anxiety that has been sustained for a long time is generally connected to trauma and is best healed by working with the body.

Valiant Recovery, CCCCA

Residential Addiction Program

In T2V 0P7 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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.

Anxiety becomes a problem when it causes so much distress or impairment that we are not able to function optimally in our day-to-day lives.

If you feel that this describes your difficulties, we can help. We help our clients learn to use relaxation and breathing techniques to gain greater mastery over their physiology, and to identify and change catastrophic and black-and-white thinking patterns that perpetuate anxiety and excessive worries.

Anxiety. Fear. Worry. Stress. Do these words seem all to familiar in your life? When faced with a multitude of responsibilities, long "to-do" lists, relationship demands, and meeting the expectations of others and ourselves, we may find ourselves unable to function, let alone enjoy life. We may be filled with self-doubt, especially when playing the "comparison game." Some people turn to substances such as alcohol and drugs to cope. Others work too many hours or engage in destructive or compulsive behaviors. Fortunately, there are healthy and productive ways to break the hold anxiety has on you and meet life on your terms. Let me help you to manage life demands and find peace again.

Stress is the body’s natural reaction to danger. It’s meant to help identify a problem that needs your attention to fix. However, when the stress lasts too long, it can start to impact our physical and mental health. In my practice we look at understanding the root of all stress or anxiety and together we create practical, meaningful coping strategies.

Sometimes we are affected by anxiety - could be mild or a full blown panic attack. We notice that our thoughts race 'by themselves', our heart rate is elevated, our palms may be sweaty, we are restless and have a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep. In counselling you can learn to stand up to anxiety, to identify your various responses to stressors and find effective ways to change the ways you think and feel. Learn ways to express your worries, fears and concerns and ways to get your needs met.

In T2T 3S9 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

When the body and mind have learned that a calm internal state is not safe, it remains in a state of alert, alarm, fear, or terror to meet it's needs. I believe anxiety is a coping style that has helped keep you safe and alive in the past, but might no longer be helpful or necessary. I can help you better understand your experience, regulate and calm, and adopt new ways of coping with stress.

We live in a world that gives us the message that to work and manage home life is to be successful, yet the lived experience of this belief leaves many feeling they are stressed and thus "not successful" because they cannot handle the world of ups and downs. We are taught to question ourselves in those moments and not the beliefs we are told about what it means to balance work and life. Furthermore our histories can at times leave us with coping strategies that often lead to stress and anxiety. Meditation has been showing more benefits to individuals dealing with anxiety and stress. I am a certified meditation instructor and use a combination of therapy and mindfulness.

In order to effectively manage anxiety, worries and stress, one needs to learn to reduce and relax the amygdala’s fear and panic response. Adopting a mindfulness mindset, paired with stress reduction techniques, are one of the best antidotes to being carried away or paralyzed by stress, worries and anxiety. By practicing mindfulness-based activities and tools specifically designed to combat and better manage the effects of stress and anxiety, you will release the heavy burden they can cause. You will learn how to more peacefully coexist with your thoughts and your emotions in the present moment, thus creating a state of inner calm to help contain and lower your stress, worries and anxiety.

Anxiety and stress are huge factors when it comes to motherhood. Whether you are having your first baby or your third, it is not an easy job, especially today. I work with women to help address what is contributing to their sense of overwhelm so that we can determine where to start. I find by looking at the whole picture we are usually able to decide on a few key areas to begin working on. Once the ball is rolling, the rest comes pretty easily.
