I am certified in cognitive behavioural therapy for children and youth, but I work with people of all ages to decrease their experience of anxiety, stress, discomfort and fear. Through teaching real skills, I will help you overcome phobias, obsessive compulsive behaviours, generalized anxiety, social anxiety and other fear-based responses. Without anxiety and stress dictating how you feel and react, you will be able to adapt and learn from the many experiences of life.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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 is something that everyone deals with in one way or another through stress in their lives. Currently, 80% of my client's struggle with this often debilitating disorder so I have lots of experience in working with individuals to manage anxious better and improve their quality of life. I use CBT, and DBT as part of the therapeutic interventions.

Registered Professional Counsellor and Life Coach

Kelowna , British Columbia V1W 3G3 | (250) 870-2732

In my professional and personal experience I have found that problems with anxiety, stress, depression, and anger issues are often overlapping. Many people feel mixed emotions of fear, worry, pressure, frustration, guilt, shame and low self worth. Unfortunately we have a tendency to doubt our abilities and our value which can quickly become a 'self fulfilling prophecy' and cause us to judge ourselves harshly, and/or isolate from others. This can become a cycle but it can often be broken by speaking openly with a professional who is competent, kind and encouraging. I am diligent in helping clients identify the false core beliefs and establish new beliefs that empower them again.

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.

5018 Treadgold Court, Kelowna, British Columbia V1W 5B4 | 250-980-0202

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.

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.

Rapidly release anxiety and stress with Lisa's cutting edge techniques so that stress and anxiety melt away. Emotions can overwhelm us. Sometimes all we focus on is the negative, glass half empty perspective. We often load up our plates with so much worry and stress that we can become immobilized. We try to suppress, repress, avoid and ignore our emotions hoping that they will go away. Unfortunately, these techniques don't work in the long term. Learn to let emotions go and learn these new techniques that can be easily learned and duplicated at home.

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.

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 natural and holistic therapies most issues related to anxiety can be dealt with by addressing a persons thoughts, beliefs, behaviours and actions. Building self awareness, mindfulness skills and holistic resources to detect triggers using CBT is my favoured method of helping clients help themselves.
