Dr. Sloat feels we live in a world that overstimulates us, and thus stress and anxiety are sometimes unavoidable, especially for the sensitive among us. She takes a triple approach to treatment in that it is, 1) aimed at teaching strategies and tools for dealing with anxiety and stress as we experience them, 2) geared toward challenging thoughts and beliefs that are anxiety and/or stress producing in themselves, and 3) facilitates management of one's lifestyle such that it becomes balanced.

Feeling stressed, overwhelmed and anxious. Life is so hectic and busy that it is easy to get swepted away with anxiety. Counselling can help in managing stress and anxiety, so that you can return to enjoying your life again. Counselling will show you how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours are interconnected. More importantly, you will discover how to use coping tools and strategies so that you won't get overly stressed or anxious. Finding tools that work for you will be one of the goals of counselling, so that you can remain calm, relaxed and focused when you want and need to.

We have evolved for survival, NOT HAPPINESS, which is why we all have a propensity for anxiety and stress. It's natural, however, it's HOW YOU DEAL WITH IT that makes the difference. Think of all the ways stress and anxiety are affecting your life. Now imagine the joy and fulfilment of living your dreams without being immobilized by stress and anxiety! Here are some of the potential benefits: improved health, weight loss, smoking cessation, alcohol reduction or elimination, improved relationships and marriage, etc. All of these benefits can occur when you learn how to manage, NOT AVOID, stress and anxiety.

Anxiety and stress are the single most common reasons people come to therapy with me. My approach to working with anxiety is multifaceted. I help clients to understand what types of experiences trigger their anxiety. I also help them to get to the bottom of why such experiences are so anxiety provoking. I provide my clients with tools and techniques to become aware of and to keep their level of arousal within tolerable limits. Such tools involve breathing exercises as well as relaxation and meditative practices. Clients frequently develop insight into how the degree of anxiety they experience is out of proportion to the current circumstances and is really a result of past experience.

Clients suffering from anxiety, stress, and burn-out, can learn better ways to deal with their inner conflicts and their outer conflicts so that unconscious defence patterns don't continue to rule and ruin their lives. Through the psychotherapy relationship a client becomes more aware of their own thinking and mental patterns AND more in touch with their own truths and feelings. Then a person has much more choice about how to deal with both work and play, joys and struggles in life.

Our culture is permeated with stress and anxiety, and we develop habitual ways of reacting to situations that actually reinforce our stress and anxiety. Although stress reactions can be helpful in avoiding danger, in a day to day way these reactions can actually interfere with our ability to cope. In therapy, you will learn new ways to calm and self-regulate, to change habitual and negative beliefs, and to react differently in stressful situations. By using simple mindfulness techniques that calm the nervous system, you can actually minimize your stress or anxious reaction. The result is a more positive life experience which will lead to more satisfaction.

I believe anxiety is a response to aspects of life that a person deems fearful, unsafe, or uncertain. It is possible to reduce or eliminate a person's anxiety in counselling, and in doing so, you will feel lighter, more secure, and grounded in your daily living. Similarly, high stress levels can perpetuate a person's sense of anxiety. I believe stress can be managed and significantly decreased through counselling.

Anxiety is a very common experience for many people and can manifest within a person's life in many different ways. I provide opportunities for people to learn about anxiety, develop an awareness about their thoughts, emotions and beliefs that fuel anxiety and offer clinically proven strategies for overcoming anxiety. I work together with individuals to develop a counselling program that entails understanding where a person's anxiety may have originated, developing an awareness into the situations and relationships that trigger their anxiety and employing coping methods to help manage anxiety in daily life.

My approach to anxiety and stress is practical and tailored to your priorities and needs. Come away with greater self-awareness and tools to work with. Learn about what anxiety is and what the anxious brain does. Identify how anxiety impacts you – your body, your thoughts, and your behaviours. Learn to identify and replace irrational thoughts with realistic thinking patterns and notice how your feelings and behaviours change as a result. Irrational thoughts can hold a lot of power. Take the power back through applying new skills and creating a plan that supports your well-being. There are many effective strategies to ease anxiety.

Stress in the right amount, at the right time, and in the right manner helps us grow. The problem with most modern stress is that it violates all three conditions and never comes one issue at a time! Together, we will identify what your stressors are, how you perceive them, what sense of control you feel you have, what symptoms define them, and what resources you can muster to deal with them. You are not powerless - it just feels that way at times.
