I use ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) which is a mindfulness based approach to managing anxiety. We look at what can be controlled (what you do with your hands and feet) and what cannot be controlled (feelings and emotions). Mindfulness exercises are taught to help regulate emotions in the moment. Just a hint: We cannot turn our anxiety on or off like a light switch so we must learn to live with our anxiety.

I believe that most anxiety and stress caused today does not necessarily need to be treated with medications. Although at times useful in conjunction with therapy most issues related to anxiety can be dealt with by addressing a persons thoughts, beliefs, behaviours and actions. Building self awareness, mindfulness skills and resources to detect triggers using CBT is my favoured method of helping clients help themselves.

Anxiety is typical for all sentient beings and necessary for our survival. Some people tend to have much more negative imaginations (creative thinkers), which inevitably causes tremendous distress. We will help you talk back the negative thoughts and replace them with more realistic thinking. We use a variety of approaches to arm clients with several tools that have produced long-lasting results. We know how difficult it is for anxiety suffers to come for an in-office session, so clients are offered telephone, online, and/or email sessions until they are ready for a face to face appointment. We care and will help you live your best life.

Feelings of anxiety can become so intense that it becomes overwhelming. Often individuals struggling with anxiety express constant intruding thoughts that focus on fears of events of the future. Anxiety can create physical feelings of distress like a tight chest that makes it difficult to breath, an upset or tight feeling in the stomach, and general fatigue from constantly trying to control their thoughts and actions. Some people have battled anxiety for so long that they begin to believe it is just who they are and accept the restrictions it causes in their life. Through counselling we will work to break the cycle of anxiety controlling your inner world. Bringing a sense of relief, control and freedom that has been absent for so long.

Struggles with Anxiety and distress can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing these issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when these are present as ithey impact the very mechanisms we use to cope.

Using the Emotional Freedom Technique you will benefit from rapid relief of physical symptoms, including a reduction of cortisol – the stress hormone. Using Compassionate Inquiry, you will gain some insight into the origins of your present-day triggers and how to heal from them. And using Polyvagal Theory, you will benefit from understanding what is happening in your nervous system, specifically, your own personal response patterns to stress and anxiety, and how to reshape your nervous system towards resilience.

Residential Addiction Program

Kelowna, Kelowna, British Columbia V4V 1E7 | 250-878-5876

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.

This may mean engaging in therapeutic activities to help decrease the experience of symptoms of anxiety and provide tools to help cope with anxiety, but will also likely involve exploring more deeply rooted issues that lie at the heart of an individual's anxiety.

Anxiety & Stress is unavoidable - I counsel Anxiety & Stress Resolution through applying T.A. Psychotherapy's effective tools & skills to guide clients to practice healthy core perceptions & perspectives to resolve hidden fears beneath anxiety/stress reactions. Clients identify & release old fears, unhealthy emotional reactions & 'out-of-control' behaviors; then learn & practice healthy changes to create inner peace & calm, form clear thoughts, make sound decisions, gain power to create safety & security for self & loved ones. Since fears, anxiety & stress reactions are old learned behaviors, clients make new 'Re-Decisons' & practice healthy responses to build certainty, freedom & peace.

Nobody wants to be ‘stressed out’ or anxious. However, anxiety and stress seem to be an all too familiar part of our North American lives. Anxiety disorders are the most common of all mental health disorders, and over 75% of Americans report regularly experiencing physical symptoms caused by stress. Anxiety and stress have a negative impact on our lives, and they can easily overwhelm us. Taking action to alleviate the symptoms of both is a good first step, but the underlying cause of both needs to be understood and neutralized if emotional freedom is to be achieved. There is a simple solution that works for both, that will have you feeling better quickly. For guaranteed results, call today!
