Stress and anxiety are often caused by uncertainty; feelings of loss of control, unresolved conflict or emotional isolation. These thoughts and experiences tend to create a sense of overwhelm, that life is out of our control. Laurie can help you develop coping behaviors so that you can live a more balanced life, where your energy can be spent on living, rather than on stress and worry. Through working with Laurie and implementing various exercises and techniques, she can help you become more aware of patterns that our thoughts and emotions get caught up in. Once you become aware of these patterns, we are in a better position to alter them; this includes changing our patterns of responses that we experience as stress or anxiety.

Anxiety and stress can be debilitating for many people. Thankfully, there are proven effective treatments to help people overcome these conditions. I work in a model of therapy known as "Cognitive Behavioural Therapy." Using this we examine how thought process and perceptions can trigger anxiety and stress. Working together we will define specific techniques and tools that you can use to reduce both your anxiety and stress levels in order to get back to your daily life. Tackling these issues can take time and patience, but it is definitely less energy then living with these conditions on a daily basis.

I believe anxiety is a response to aspects of life that a person deems fearful, unsafe, or uncertain. It is possible to reduce or eliminate a person's anxiety in counselling, and in doing so, you will feel lighter, more secure, and grounded in your daily living. Similarly, high stress levels can perpetuate a person's sense of anxiety. I believe stress can be managed and significantly decreased through counselling.

Our culture is permeated with stress and anxiety, and we develop habitual ways of reacting to situations that actually reinforce our stress and anxiety. Although stress reactions can be helpful in avoiding danger, in a day to day way these reactions can actually interfere with our ability to cope. In therapy, you will learn new ways to calm and self-regulate, to change habitual and negative beliefs, and to react differently in stressful situations. By using simple mindfulness techniques that calm the nervous system, you can actually minimize your stress or anxious reaction. The result is a more positive life experience which will lead to more satisfaction.

When you worry you suffer in advance for outcomes which have not yet happened and, in fact, rarely do happen. It is bad enough to suffer the bad things that really do happen without suffering needlessly. We will seek to strengthen faith and trust that the world is mainly safe for you. Stress is the result of overloading our coping competencies. We will talk about riding through anxiety attacks and techniques to reduce uncomfortable hyper vigilance. We will look back into your history to find the roots of anxiety and stress. We may use trauma relief strategies such as EMDR or Traumatic Incident reduction (TIR). Counseling for anxiety and stress should make you happier and more relaxed.

My approach to anxiety and stress is practical and tailored to your priorities and needs. Come away with greater self-awareness and tools to work with. Learn about what anxiety is and what the anxious brain does. Identify how anxiety impacts you – your body, your thoughts, and your behaviours. Learn to identify and replace irrational thoughts with realistic thinking patterns and notice how your feelings and behaviours change as a result. Irrational thoughts can hold a lot of power. Take the power back through applying new skills and creating a plan that supports your well-being. There are many effective strategies to ease anxiety.

Anxiety and stress are the single most common reasons people come to therapy with me. My approach to working with anxiety is multifaceted. I help clients to understand what types of experiences trigger their anxiety. I also help them to get to the bottom of why such experiences are so anxiety provoking. I provide my clients with tools and techniques to become aware of and to keep their level of arousal within tolerable limits. Such tools involve breathing exercises as well as relaxation and meditative practices. Clients frequently develop insight into how the degree of anxiety they experience is out of proportion to the current circumstances and is really a result of past experience.

It could be said that people have never been more busy. It is not surprisingly that anxiety and stress have become epidemic. We find ourselves running to keep up, and by never pausing for reflection, it is easy to forget what we are running for. Unfortunately many of us don't realize the cost until it culminates in symptoms like panic attacks, debilitating fatigue, and health crises. Psychotherapy can make us pause to bring consciousness back into the equation, and help us to remember what we are running from and to discover where we should be going instead. It is a healing relationship that can bring us back to ourselves, and to who we are when the training shoes fall away.

Understanding what anxiety is and where it comes from is the first step in getting to a more productive emotional state. I help my clients understand themselves and their anxiety, but most importantly I provide them with the appropriate tools needed to combat the effects thier anxiety has them.
