Anxiety often has people identifying strongly with it. If you have a problem with anxiety, you are certainly not alone! Everyone affected by Anxiety has a unique relationship with it. Narrative therapy investigates how Anxiety keeps you away from the pleasures of life and explores new opportunities to gain control over your life. Narrative Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that does not treat people as disorders but as sources of knowledge and holders of their unique life experiences. We will email back and forth, it's just like talking to a friend only you will receive professional help on your own schedule. Effective, easy, convenient and completely confidential E- Counselling.

Anxiety and stress are sometimes helpful responses and can carry important information for us about our current lives. However, they can also be overwhelming and come with sensations that are difficult to tolerate. I can help you learn techniques to soothe your body, regain balance, and address the mind chatter that may be perpetuating your anxiety.

If you're struggling with anxious thoughts, you may find it hard to focus. The fight or flight alarm is going off in your brain, constantly sending you messages starting with "what if...." If worrying is keeping you trapped in a hamster wheel, tired, but unable to rest, you may find yourself turning to addictive substances or behaviours to cope. As an addiction counsellor, I help clients cope with the anxious thoughts keeping them trapped in addictive behaviours. By uncovering these underlying thoughts, I help you develop coping skills so you can gain a sense of focus, clarity, confidence, and freedom from constantly overthinking. Send me a message and I'll guide you through the next steps.

When we are anxious and stressed, it can be hard to think clearly and understand what it is that is causing so much distress. We may feel we 'should' be better able to handle the situation, but just can't. We want to hide, or self medicate or maybe say things we regret. As our amygdala releases chemicals that signal danger and our nervous systems go into a fight, flight or freeze reaction, our minds can begin to cascade and flood with all sorts of worried thoughts; sometimes this can trigger a panic attack. Together we can explore the root of where these anxieties were first experienced by you, what triggers them, and find coping strategies to help you self regulate and reduce anxiety.

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.

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. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.
