Stress is a natural response when faced with challenges or threats. Our brains kick into high alert, and we focus intensely on potential threats. While this response is natural, if our system doesn’t calm when the perceived threat is removed, we can get stuck in “fight or flight” resulting in anxiety. Short term impacts of anxiety can include insomnia, impatience, and rumination, long term it can affect your health. Anxiety is often uncomfortable, yet the more we try to push it away the more intense it can become. Counselling works on two levels: 1) Experimenting with tools to calm the nervous system 2) Increasing our ability to tolerate anxiety without excessive nervous system activation

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?

Everyone gets anxious. Anxiety is the healthy, normal, appropriate response to situations that aren't meeting our needs for support, reassurance, comfort, security, significance and many other common human needs. Whenever a human being has a need that isn't being met in some area of their lives they will naturally feel a little anxious (or a lot anxious depending on the situation). So the problem isn't so much that you feel anxious, it is learning to quickly identify what it is that's triggering your anxiety (even if you've felt it for 30 years) and being shown simple tools to resolve it once and for all. If you're ready to feel peaceful and confident in your life, we will show you h....

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.

Anxiety wants to hold us back, it loves backing out of plans, commitments, goals, ideas, and even dreams. Taking the first step towards fighting our anxiety can be the hardest, we want to overthink it, we want to go through the list of reasons something won't work out. Instead, sometimes we need to just thank our anxious brains for wanting to protect us (but we've got this), take a deep breath, and reach out to get started. My contact page is here: http://presentmomentum.ca/contact/ I'd love to help you kick anxiety's ass using proven methods like CBT and acceptance and commitment therapy.

Anxiety is one of the most prevalent reasons individuals of all ages seek therapy. It can be extremely deblitating and interfere with many areas of life. Parents often feel helpless to support their anxious children and benefit from learning practical techniques they can use at home. Children are helped by learning age-appropriate cognitive behavioural techniques (CBT). Teens and adults often need support to identify the primary sources of their own worries and fears. Heidi teaches awareness and coping strategies, leaving clients feeling more in control of their anxiety and their lives, and much more optimistic.

We will do this through a combination of behavioral strategies, exploring the emotional material that is keeping you stuck and how past history is affecting your current situation.

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.

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?

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.
