You will learn holistic ways of restoring the body's natural state of balance and well-being through healthy changes in diet, exercise, and sleep patterns. We will identify the thinking patterns that stimulate and maintain anxious states, and we will replace them with thoughts that result in calmer, more grounded feelings. You will also learn how to identify and manage the physical sensations of the fight/flight response that contribute to anxiety, resulting in a body-centered experience of well-being.

Real Solutions to Real Challenges. Stress is necessary for survival and provides opportunity for growth. However, it can aslo result in anxiety and even panic with accompaning physical symptoms. Unproductive coping mechanisms may kick in that have become entrenched and difficult to break. In more severe cases Obsessive-Complusive Behaviors may surface to distract us from the anxieties. These obsessive-compulsive behaviors may become debilitating and incredibly frustrating. Martin helps clients deminish their anieties by cognitive restructuring, relaxation training, and overcoming avoidance. Avoidance only provides short-term relief, at the cost significantly damaging our self-esteem

According to Dr. Carl Jung, the amount of anxiety one experiences is equal to the degree of trauma one’s endured, but hasn’t processed. Anxiety is one way the unconscious gets our attention, and it’s seldom comfortable or easy. In therapy, we will explore the roots of your anxiety and work to transform your unconscious impulses into conscious awareness. People who outgrow anxiety experience an increased ability to manage stress, an expanded sense of emotional freedom, a greater sense of authenticity and cohesion, improved self-confidence, deeper and more fulfilling relationships with self and others. Call Psychotherapist Joseph Eliezer today for your no obligation phone consultation.

Most of my clients over the past twenty plus years have dealt with some form of anxiety and stress. There are many helpful approaches to managing these such as mindfulness and breath awareness, but I have found that often the greatest healing comes from learning to trust one's self and the process of life. Listening to one's deepest self and learning to express one's truth verbally or creatively, may also help the person transform their anxiety and live with greater energy and joy. As with most issues, each individual is unique, as is the approach that is called for.

Stress and anxiety are part of life and can be positive forces that motivate and excite us. Yet the demands of work, family and other relationships can overwhelm our normal capacity to cope. I work with clients to create a supportive place to explore and clarify key issues that contribute to current stress and fear, while coaching through strategies to actively manage symptoms. The goal is to promote self-awareness, develop confidence in strategies to manage the overwhelming feelings, and feel more resilient.

Master Therapeutic Counsellor

Most of us suffer from anxiety and stress at some point in our lives. And we live with it. What if we didn't have to live with it? What if there was a way to alleviate it from our lives? What if it was a choice? Most of the stress and anxiety in our lives comes from our perspective of what is happening in our lives. This perspective is coming from us, and therefore it is possible to change it. I help clients do this through cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, meditation and other methods that enable them to become much more aware of their thoughts and the choices they have to think differently. There is no need to suffer. There is another way!

We live in anxious and stressful times. Although anxiety is an expected and adaptive reaction to stress, it can become a problem when it limits our ability to work, socialize, and enjoy life. The good news is we know that evidenced-based techniques can significantly reduce anxiety and help cope with stress. Our reactions to stress can impact all areas of life including work, relationships, and general well-being. I want to help you manage the current stress in your life, and develop resilience to make it easier to rebound from future challenges.

Registered Transactional Analysis Practitioner

3735 Cardiff Street, Burnaby, British Columbia V5G 2H1 | +16045665558

We cannot escape anxiety and stress as they are an inevitable part of modern life, but we can manage them within our personal tolerance thresholds. Mindfulness is the first thing that I help clients master and bring into their daily life. Mindfulness or focused attention exercises can help us get in touch with our body and monitor our own feelings; it will help us self-soothe and cope with anxiety and stress. A few additions to daily routine are enough, e.g.: taking an extra minute in the shower, listening to sounds in the environment, paying attention to physical sensations in alteration with our inner sensations; accepting any thoughts and feelings allowing them to come and pass. It works!

Tiffani Van Buckley, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

3223 Main Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V5V 3M6 | 778-995-0242

Feelings of anxiety can develop slowly and insidiously. The mind becomes busy with thoughts, especially thoughts about the future, over which one has very little control. The mind is so powerful it convinces the body that the fears (anxieties) are real and true, resulting in symptoms of elevated heart rate, shaking, blurry vision, tension and difficulty breathing. All of this, if not addressed, becomes a terrifying and helpless cycle. Tiffani provides education about anxiety, as well as easy, effective coping strategies to quickly reduce feelings of anxiety and experience a new way of being that is capable, calm and free.

We all experience stress. Stress is our body reacting to demands and both good and bad experiences can be stressful. If our thoughts and feelings cause us stress, this type of stress can grow over time and lead to anxiety. If you worry a lot, often think negatively, feel overwhelmed, and do not know how to relax, you may be suffering from ongoing stress and/or anxiety. If so, I can help. Some of the benefits of connecting with me for counselling for anxiety and stress are: • Learning what causes you stress and how to minimize stressors • Increases in your support network and connections with others • Increased confidence in your ability to handle stressful situations • Changing the way you look at life • Understanding your emotions and how to...(view profile to read more)

You might be familiar with that tense, unsettled feeling that you can't shake. The overthinking, ruminating, and worrying. It's so hard to be present and engaged when we suffer with anxiety! Anxiety is the #1 reason people seek out my services. I can help you get to the roots of your anxiety (hint: it's not ONLY about disputing your irrational thoughts) so that you feel more grounded and alive. Through their work with me, my clients have reported that they are more socially engaged, less in their heads, more in tune with their bodies, and better able to attend to the underlying emotions and needs underlying the anxiety. I look forward to supporting you in moving beyond your anxiety.

Anxiety can result in very physically uncomfortable feelings, be accompanied by destructive thoughts, or stir up intense emotions. Whatever ways your anxieties may show up, it can feel like a storm is taking over, or like a grinding marathon of tension. These uncomfortable, anxious feelings can have a huge influence on the decisions you make in your life. It may even feel like you are not making deliberate choices, but instead are just trying to get through one challenging, anxiety-riddled day at a time. It can be very exhausting! The goal of therapy is to shift you to a place where YOU are making the decisions in your life, not your anxious feelings. Read more on my website.

West 16th Ave and MacDonald, Vancouver, British Columbia V6K 4M1 | 604-9169606

We are far more primitive in our reactions than we like to think, and fear, stress, or anxiety, can go from an adaptive warning to a very non adaptive over reaction, arresting our ability to function. I have worked extensively in this area, in giving workshops and as a trainer for other counsellors, focusing first on understanding the body's reaction and then developing skills to over-ride the anxiety response. Using a mindfulness approach, staying connected with our needs, and focusing on resiliency, anxiety can be tamed.

I help clients dealing with anxiety and stress by using CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness based approaches. I help clients develop awareness and insight around the way they think to then create change in their thinking. Thoughts, Behaviours, and Emotions are all interconnected and drive each person's experience of an event and of themselves. By changing one, we change the other two. I help clients do this while pairing their thoughts with mindfulness based strategies to soothe their stress and anxiety.

Commercial Drive, Vancouver , British Columbia V5L 3X9 | 778 323-9667

Clients can expect a safe, warm and caring environment in which to express their own personal thoughts, and feelings. Although clients are the expert of their own lives I help them gain insight into what they can't see. I often use CBT to help clients find new ways of coping wth many different types of anxiety. I also use mindfulness and grounding activities to help clients feel more settled. In general clients find that after counselling for a time they experience either less anxiety or anxiety less of the time.
