Often people will tell others to stop worrying and lower your stress because of the serious health problems it can cause, but despite our best attempts to do this most often people are simply unsuccessful -- the more we try to "control" these problem areas, the worse the worry cycle usually gets. Mindfulness can help us break this cycle by learning to accept our feelings and stop getting hooked into the stress, anxiety and worry. What if these attempts to "control" the anxiety is actually the problem that keeps us stuck in it and leads us away from the meaningful life we desire?

Anxiety can be debilitating and rob you of your ability to enjoy your life and precious moments. If you find yourself absorbed by worry and fear, whether it be worry about finances, people, lifestyle, or even your performance in various settings, there are effective tools that can reduce anxiety and build confidence in your ability to manage stress and worry. I enjoy helping people who tend to be self-critical, or experience anxiety with respect to performance, social situations, or who are caught in situations stife with uncertainty. Tools I provide to help people can include self-hypnosis, relaxation training, Emotional Freedom Technique and other cognitive/experiential tools.

Anxiety can be debilitating. Uncovering the underlying causes for the worries and fears then learning how to relax will help control your anxiety levels, stop worrisome thoughts, and conquer your fears. Developing more positive coping and problem solving skills will provide you with life long tools for managing unexpected situations. Realizing it is your thoughts and their perceptions, not the external event, that affects the way you feel and react, will allow you to replace the negative reaction with positive ones. Stress can be managed by taking control. Prioritize, identify the major source then each additional one then follow through with changes remembering you are in control.

Anxiety as a result of stress is one of, if not the major contributing factor to poor health in most areas of people lives. If you have ever been tense before an exam or a visit to the dentist, you have a felt anxiety. Increased heart rate, sweating, rapid breathing, dry mouth, & a sense of dread are common. Changing this involves cognitive & behavioural approaches. Cognitive change is understanding how thoughts contribute to symptoms and how to change thought patterns to reduce the intensity of your anxiety. And behavioral changes involve using techniques to reduce or stop any undesired behaviors that are a result of the anxiety you have been experiencing.

High functioning anxiety effects many Canadians today without anyone ever knowing. Do you feel overcome by your anxious thoughts? If you feel overwhelmed by anxiety, you are not alone. Anxiety is one of the most normal feelings humans experience. In my past I have also struggled with anxiety. Having learned to cope and overcome my anxious thoughts has made me even more passionate to encourage and help others overcome their anxious thoughts too.

Anxiety and stress are something everyone faces at times. When worry becomes overwhelming, however, it can affect the quality of your life. I offer simple easy-to-follow strategies for dealing with anxiety in the moment, and I can help you explore its deeper roots--childhood experiences, trauma, relationship issues, career problems, unexplored life-meaning, and others. I have advanced certification with the Anxiety Disorder Association of BC (AnxietyBC, through the UBC Psychology Department) and years of experience helping people. Cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and psychotherapy are some of the tools I can use to help you feel in control of your worries.

If you think events in your life are causing you stress, you are wrong! It is actually your reaction to those events that is causing you distress. You may experience toxic automatic thoughts in in stressful situations, and we can challenge those thoughts.

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.
