Anxiety is a powerful and normal human response that can be either positive or negative depending on how it is experienced and perceived. There can be a range of symptoms. In counselling sessions we will identify what type of anxiety you may be experiencing, explore triggers that may bring on the anxious feelings, thoughts processes that may be contributing as well as some of your daily behaviours. Benefits to treating anxiety issues are endless and can be life transforming on a day to day basis as well as long term enhancing of your life.

Are you struggling with the impacts of anxiety, worry, and panic? Do you have unease, chest-constriction, and racing-thoughts when you think about the future? Are thoughts bouncing around in your head, making it impossible to sleep? Do you feel like something terrible is going to happen to you or someone you love, and you can’t seem to stop worrying? In the midst of the current global crisis, dealing with anxiety can be even harder than usual. With powerful techniques, I help people free themselves from being ruled by anxiety. Worry becomes ease, stress becomes relaxation, scattered thoughts become focus. If you're ready for deep relief - call.

Common treatment for anxiety and stress includes a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy, stress management techniques and having a good self care plan (things you actively do to nurture yourself: walking, swimming, Yoga, mediation, volunteering). For deeper and longstanding issues, psychodynamic approaches tend to be more successful at reaching some point of resolution. Should anxiety and stress negatively impact your quality of life, be it immediate crisis, or longstanding, I can help you move to taking control of your life circumstances (stressors), an alleviate the stress your experiencing.

A life, free from worry, stress, and anxiety- this is what we want for you. What is going on? How are you thinking? How are you feeling? What worries you? These are questions that we may start with in a therapy session that addresses anxiety and stress. We offer plenty of tools to help the anxious person change the way their brain is working. We want to cool down anxiety and stress, and learn acceptance and relaxation.

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.

It is my view that each client comes to my door with a unique combination of gifts, strengths and challenges. My primary focus is to help you remember and connect with your innate wisdom and your innate strength and resiliency. Then find your unique way of entering in conversation with it so you may connect with what you intrinsically know, with the aim of connecting with, strengthening and activating your emotional immune system, that can then activate the healing of the wounds you may have suffered. Taking into account your most pressing needs and concerns, we will design and create together the kind of therapy that works best for you at The Centre For Expressive Therapy.

Anxiety is an illness where we take our concerns and experiences and project them into the future to the extent that some people experience all the stress of a negative outcome. Postpartum anxiety is a particular interest to me as it often is ignored when a woman doesn't present with postpartum depression. Mindfulness based cognitive behavioural therapy and group therapy are two approaches I use. I love it when a group of women I gathered connect after the sessions are over. That community made for them is my benchmark for success.
