Anxiety and stress often manifest from a cognitive behavior, known as worry. We'd look at what triggers the anxiety and how it impacts your life. We'd also look at what causes you to feel at peace and comfortable. Anxiety and stress can interfere with your life in different intensities and ways. Step one would be to create awareness and acknowledge what and when is triggering the anxiety and discomfort. Step 2 is learning acceptance. Step 3 involves developing tools, you know work, to help you manage and enjoy life. Anxiety is not a bad emotion, it can and does protect us. The end goal is to learn what you can do to minimize its impact and appreciate your ability to move with it.

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.

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.

In V9Y 4M9 - Nearby to Qualicum Beach.

I have a passion for working with clients who struggle with anxiety and stress. Using CBT techniques, I work with you to identify your personal triggers and how they spark feelings of anxiety and ruminating thoughts. We explore how these thoughts and feelings impact your actions (such as avoidance, procrastination, removal of the trigger, etc.) and implement strategies to break this cycle. I also offer counselling for stress and burnout. We explore the sources of your stress and how to release tension from your body. Possible strategies may include creating a self-care routine, building your support network, and experimenting with evidence-based practices for relieving stress.

Registered Clinical Counselor, Child Psychotherapist

In V9P 1S5 - Nearby to Qualicum Beach.

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.

While our bodies are perfectly designed to adapt and react to stress, modern problems mean that we tend to detect life threatening dangers in very ordinary places. Conflicts at work, arguments in our relationships and uncertainties such as the post-Covid world activate old survival mechanisms. We may be stuck in the buzzing, fear states of ‘fight-flight’ or the numb and paralyzed states of ‘freeze and shut down.’ The good news is that I have a long history of safely and successfully helping individuals and couples to reduce and release stress using a variety of CBT and mindfulness techniques, as well as trauma-informed therapy. You have my commitment to compassionate and educated care.
