Do you suffer from Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, or another form of anxiety?

My therapeutic approach includes using the tools of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, a highly effective clinically proven short term approach, along with Mindfulness Therapy and Relaxation techniques. I also work to provide a warm, intuitive environment where you will feel safe to explore and process the roots of your pain as you learn new skills that can bring a sense of safety, relaxation and well being to your life.

Are you struggling with the impacts of anxiety, worry, and panic? Do you have unease, chest-constriction, and racing-thoughts when you think about the future? Are thoughts bouncing around in your head, making it impossible to sleep? Do you feel like something terrible is going to happen to you or someone you love, and you can’t seem to stop worrying? In the midst of the current global crisis, dealing with anxiety can be even harder than usual. With powerful techniques, I help people free themselves from being ruled by anxiety. Worry becomes ease, stress becomes relaxation, scattered thoughts become focus. If you're ready for deep relief - call.

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.

Few of us can get through life in this fast-paced society without experiencing anxiety and/or stress. Unfortunately, it almost becomes a norm. However, there are times when these feelings become overwhelming such that you losing sleep, find it hard to concentrate, are spending a lot of time re-living or 'pre-living' events in your life...spinning wheels that aren't taking you anywhere. Let me help you discover solutions that will help battle your fear (because that's what it is, after all), so you can get back to living the life you want for yourself.

Anxiety and panic are like a false alarm warning you of impending danger, but in reality, it just isn't as intense or life-threatening as it might feel in the moment. Learning new ways to tame this sense of fear, through relaxation, mindfulness, restructuring thoughts and providing tools for self-soothing are all ways to help alleviate the intensity of your stress response and give you a better sense of control in an uncertain world.

You might be familiar with that tense, unsettled feeling that you can't shake. The overthinking, ruminating, and worrying. It's so hard to be present and engaged when we suffer with anxiety! Anxiety is the #1 reason people seek out my services. I can help you get to the roots of your anxiety (hint: it's not ONLY about disputing your irrational thoughts) so that you feel more grounded and alive. Through their work with me, my clients have reported that they are more socially engaged, less in their heads, more in tune with their bodies, and better able to attend to the underlying emotions and needs underlying the anxiety. I look forward to supporting you in moving beyond your anxiety.

In V5L 3X9 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

Clients can expect a safe, warm and caring environment in which to express their own personal thoughts, and feelings. Although clients are the expert of their own lives I help them gain insight into what they can't see. I often use CBT to help clients find new ways of coping wth many different types of anxiety. I also use mindfulness and grounding activities to help clients feel more settled. In general clients find that after counselling for a time they experience either less anxiety or anxiety less of the time.

We all experience stress. Stress is our body reacting to demands and both good and bad experiences can be stressful. If our thoughts and feelings cause us stress, this type of stress can grow over time and lead to anxiety. If you worry a lot, often think negatively, feel overwhelmed, and do not know how to relax, you may be suffering from ongoing stress and/or anxiety. If so, I can help. Some of the benefits of connecting with me for counselling for anxiety and stress are: • Learning what causes you stress and how to minimize stressors • Increases in your support network and connections with others • Increased confidence in your ability to handle stressful situations • Changing the way you look at life • Understanding your emotions and how to...(view profile to read more)

It is important to know that while these feelings are normal they can be resolved with a mindfulness approach to learning how to calm restless thoughts. Relaxation strategies have proved to help as well as learning how to radically accept what is in the moment. You too can learn this easily and effortlessly.

Anxiety is a feeling of dread at its least, or thoughts that lead you to believe you are unsafe and/or about to die at its worst. I offer interventions to this challenge, all of which engage the brain and body. We can take a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach and examine and challenge faulty thinking. We can also use Neurofeedback (NFB) as an approach to calming the central nervous system so the frontal cortex of the brain can engage in logical thinking and keep the brain from having to go to the place of anxiety unnecessarily. Another approach I use, EMDR, helps the brain to reprocess old hurts and or trauma, taking the charge out of the experience.

Everyone gets anxious. Anxiety is the healthy, normal, appropriate response to situations that aren't meeting our needs for support, reassurance, comfort, security, significance and many other common human needs. Whenever a human being has a need that isn't being met in some area of their lives they will naturally feel a little anxious (or a lot anxious depending on the situation). So the problem isn't so much that you feel anxious, it is learning to quickly identify what it is that's triggering your anxiety (even if you've felt it for 30 years) and being shown simple tools to resolve it once and for all. If you're ready to feel peaceful and confident in your life, we will show you h....

I primarily work with anxiety from an EMDR/body-based perspective. Anxiety is a very "old" physiological response, in that there are parts of anxiety that are unconscious rather than "cognitive." I typically find that if we only attend to the cognitive side of anxiety, the physiological parts, such as body memory and activation, will find somewhere else to pop up. By working on the physical activation, we can better address and move through the anxiety.

I work with children, teens, adults and families who are facing difficult decisions and seeking happier balanced lives. We all suffer from worry and anxiety at times in our lives, but when these problems become overwhelming, I provide a safe, non-judgmental, caring counselling environment. My therapeutic approach starts with building a trusting relationship and then addresses these issues with strategies such as those that are built into the Cognitive/Behavioural framework. For example, this approach helps clients better manage their feelings and worries and leads to a more balanced and happier life.

Anxiety can range from worry to fear to panic to even giftedness. We believe it is important to understand the anxiety that you are experiencing before you move into treatment of it. For example, does it come out of no where? Is it connected to ongoing stress in your life? Have you eperienced trauma early in your life? We use our intuition and talk therapy to develop a relationship with the anxiety, to understand it deeply in order to support you.

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.

Anxiety and Stress can be related to a number of things going on in our lives at a given time. Typically it is how we perceive the stressors in our life, or the feeling that we don't have the resources to cope that determines whether or not we feel anxious, stressed, or overwhelmed. If we are unable to get into a RECOVERY zone, anxiety and stress can quickly seem to spin out of control and EVERYTHING may feel too hard. I use Cognitive and Behavioural, Mindfulness, and Ego State therapies to help individuals quickly acquire the tools, and insights that help them reduce the Anxiety symptoms and navigate their anxiety triggers. Moreover, they regain a sense of calm and control in their lives.

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.

Most of my clients over the past twenty plus years have dealt with some form of anxiety and stress. There are many helpful approaches to managing these such as mindfulness and breath awareness, but I have found that often the greatest healing comes from learning to trust one's self and the process of life. Listening to one's deepest self and learning to express one's truth verbally or creatively, may also help the person transform their anxiety and live with greater energy and joy. As with most issues, each individual is unique, as is the approach that is called for.

I help clients through cognitive behavioral therapy. The premise of this therapy is that thoughts create feelings, which create behaviours. The problem is most of our thoughts are fear based and are not based in truth. I help clients to identify the irrational, untrue thoughts that they are having that are causing them stress and anxiety and learn to replace them with more realistic thoughts that do not creat feelings of anxiety.

Anxiety and stress often play a role in our busy lives today -- but they don't have to take over or steal your ability to enjoy your life and relationships. In fact, anxiety is one of the most treatable mental health issues, and there is no need to struggle alone. I'm here to help. There are many tools that can quickly relieve the physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety, & I work with each client to help them choose options that work best for them. I love seeing the positive shift that happens when clients discover whats works. I can see the relief that floods over them, along with their eagerness to continue to work to better understand their anxiety and take back the joy in their lives.

Many people view anxiety as irrational, illogical, silly, or unrealistic fears. Using Education Behavior Therapy, my goal is to help you see that behavior is rational, logical, and goal-directed, but can be based on unhealthy or inaccurate beliefs. By addressing the underlying beliefs, the behavior that results from them will change naturally. Anxiety disorders are the most treatable psychological problem that there is and there is tons of hope out there, waiting for you to grab onto it.
