Residential Addiction Program

In T6E 4Y9 - Nearby to Wellington.

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.

Canadian Certified Counselor

In T5S 1L2 - Nearby to Wellington.

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.

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.

Anxiety can feel debilitating when feelings of fear, worry, or nervousness develop into a day to day excessive, irrational dread and impacts a person’s daily functioning. As a registered psychologist I draw on various approaches to help individuals develop the skills to feel more in control of anxiety and stress. I assist individuals in understanding how anxiety or panic attacks develop and how to manage better by assessing needs, limits, and triggers for anxiety and stress. www.stalbertcounselling.com

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.

Registered Occupational Therapist

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.

As well we work together to develop coping mechanisms to deal with the anxiety as stress in very much part of today's life. I

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 0J3 - Nearby to Wellington.

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.

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 Psychologist, Certified Hakomi Therapist

In T5N 3W6 - Nearby to Wellington.

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

David Buhr, M.C.

Registered Psychologist

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Wellington.

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.

In T5K 0J8 - Nearby to Wellington.

Unfortunately, anxiety and stress are all-too-common occurrences in modern life. in my work with clients, I take a holistic approach to anxiety. This means that we implement techniques to target the body, mind, emotion, and spirit. I have found my training in Somatic Experiencing (a trauma therapy) to be of great benefit when working with clients, because Somatic Experiencing incorporates a biological understanding of the body and stress. I also utilize approaches from Mindfulness, Cognitive Therapy (including exposure techniques), and Solution-Focused Therapy. In my opinion, anxiety and stress are very treatable issues and I enjoy working with them.

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.
