Hannah Caradonna, MSW, RCSW, RCC

Registered Clinical Social Worker, Registered Clinical Counsellor

#318-1175 Cook St., Victoria, British Columbia

Anxiety and stress are terrible feelings to hold inside. I have worked with many clients who feel anxious. The trick is to sort out what the base cause of the anxiety is about. It is often not what it appears to be about on top. And, you will see, as soon as you start talking about the issue, the anxiety dissipates. You can also take home some simple mind and breathing exercises to use. Call me when you are ready for some calm in your body and mind.

Anxiety Counsellor

Frances Bryant-Scott, MSW, RSW, BCATR

Registered Social Worker, Registered Art Therapist

64 Government Street, Lower Suite, Victoria, British Columbia

Living in the early 21st century seems to mean living in a constant state of stress. You may be experiencing constant low-grade anxiety or full blown panic attacks that keep you from being involved in your daily life. These conditions may be the result of trauma, early conditioning, or ongoing stress. I can work with you through talk counselling and/or art therapy to explore what triggers your anxiety, and to gently re-learn your responses to stressful situations. In both cases, we'll work to develop techniques such as mindfulness to help you get back into your life!

Anxiety Counsellor

Cally Farr, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

7 - 1140 Fort Street, Victoria, British Columbia

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.

Certified Transactional Analyst and Master Therapeutic Counsellor

1921 Fernwood Road, Unit 2, Victoria, British Columbia

Are you afraid of feelings and/or behaviours that you can no longer control? Are you afraid of the future and what it will bring if you cannot change? Without a certain amount of anxiety and stress people will not be motivated to change and grow. But for most, excessive anxiety and stress can inhibit development. In therapy, your anxiety and stress is put into words and feelings. As you use the therapeutic relationship to mitigate your discomfort, that discomfort (along with learned ways of relating to others) transforms.

Anxiety Counsellor

Michelle Iulianella, BEd, MBA, MA, RCC, CCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

215 - 2186 Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria, British Columbia

Anxiety and stress create emotional, cognitive and physical distress that can overflow into all areas of our lives. I work with clients to identify what lies underneath the symptoms of distress from an emotionally-focused perspective. Clients begin to be able to see their anxiety and stress as action-oriented signals for their deeper needs. I work alongside clients to facilitate and empower them to re-establish equilibrium in their own lives by taking back control - emotionally, cognitively and physically. As a result clients report feeling calmer and more at ease, sleeping better, fand having an overall sense of being more in control of their lives - often for the first time in a long time.

When you worry you suffer in advance for outcomes which have not yet happened and, in fact, rarely do happen. It is bad enough to suffer the bad things that really do happen without suffering needlessly. We will seek to strengthen faith and trust that the world is mainly safe for you. Stress is the result of overloading our coping competencies. We will talk about riding through anxiety attacks and techniques to reduce uncomfortable hyper vigilance. We will look back into your history to find the roots of anxiety and stress. We may use trauma relief strategies such as EMDR or Traumatic Incident reduction (TIR). Counseling for anxiety and stress should make you happier and more relaxed.

Dana Simard, MC, RCC, ATR, RYT (200)

Registered Clinical Counsellor

3025 Shakespeare St, Victoria, British Columbia

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 has been named as number one issue that plague 20s century, however if you are dealing with it, you may feel like you are the only one dealing with anxiety.

Anxiety and stress seem to be ever-present in our world today.

Anxiety Counsellor

Sarah G. Flynn, RCC, MA, MREM

Registered Clinical Counsellor

#7 - 1921 Fernwood Rd, Victoria , British Columbia

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

Dorion Dellabough, M.Ed., RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

4350 Woodcrest Place, Victoria, British Columbia

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.
