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.

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.

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.

Canadian Certified Counsellor

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.

Anxiety is a natural human reaction in life. It involves both the mind and body and it serves an important basic survival function. However, excessive amounts of anxiety, fear, nervousness, worry, or dread or anxiety that is too constant or too intense can cause a person to feel preoccupied, distracted, tense, and always on alert. Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental health conditions. - Learn how anxiety works and its important role in our lives. - Learn how to establish a healthy relationship with your anxiety and tools/skills to manage your stress before it gets out control, ways to cope when you are in its grip and strategies to re-establish a healthy balance.

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.

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.

Everyone experiences stress at some point in their lives but sometimes stress can be so overwhelming that these emotions and feelings become extremely distressing and anxiety occurs. Anxiety can have a serious impact on daily life, relationships, physical health, and career. Issues that can be overcome through EMDR therapy are: • Social Anxiety: fear and avoidance of meeting new people, socializing in a crowd, and public speaking. • Panic Attacks: overwhelming terror and belief that something bad could happen at any moment. • Phobias: fear and avoidance of places or things such as flying, driving, animals, crowds, and other. • Traumas: witnessing or surviving assaults, childhood neglect, accidents, death, and violence.
