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.

Dr. Limbos will routinely administer questionnaires and interview the child and/or the family to determine if the child is suffering from anxiety. Treatment usually consists of weekly sessions for a minimum of 12 weeks but will be individualised for each child. Dr. Limbos uses a variety of treatment modalities, but typically begins using a cognitive behavioral approach.

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.

I will teach you how to reduce anxiety and stress response through calming your mind and body. Using Mindfulness and Mindful Self-Compassion strategies, you will be able to take control of how you respond to difficult life situations. When the mind and body are calm, we are able to expand our thinking about our problems, and solutions to challenges become more readily available.

Do you find yourself worrying about whether you locked the front door,even though you know that you checked it three times? Do you feel your palms sweating and your heart racing, with an impending sense of doom as a sense panic washes over you? These are both forms of anxiety, that sense that the world is not a safe place and worry and concern over the future. Together we will work together to improve your sense of well being, decrease your anxiety and release you from the need to devote energy and brain space to safety behaviours.

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.

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.

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.

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!
