Feeling stressed, overwhelmed and anxious. Life is so hectic and busy that it is easy to get swepted away with anxiety.

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.

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!

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 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. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and alone with it. In counselling with me you will learn how to relate skillfully and compassionately to your anxiety, how to find safe way to work with your body and mind to successfully navigate stress and how to heal wounds of childhood that often are at the root of anxiety. Most importantly, you will find new ease, safety and freedom to be fully yourself in the world-the experience your anxiety probably prevented you from having.

Anxiety Counsellor

Mark Watts, RTC, CH

Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Certified Hypnotherapist

228-1175 Cook Street, Victoria, British Columbia

I help people work through and overcome painful experiences of stress and anxiety. I approach my clients with kindness and understanding and let them know that they will not be judged by me. By creating an open and trusting relationship, they will not feel humiliated or shamed. Together we will examine the depth of their problem and how it affects them mentally, emotionally, behaviorally and socially. We will explore the triggers underlying their anxiety and learn new skills to reduce their reactions. Clients learn to change faulty beliefs, to relax, to feel more secure and free, and to attain a calmness that they did not experience before.

Anxiety Counsellor

Corrinne Allyson, PhD

Registered Professional Counsellor

Cadboro Bay area, Victoria, British Columbia

Mindfulness based therapies have been proven as an effective tool in the treatment of anxiety and stress. However, anxiety is a symptom, not the problem itself. Once you have the tools necessary to manage your stress we will gently explore the underlying issues. Sometimes the solution can be simple and straightforward and sometimes the issues require a more in-depth examination. Whatever your individual needs require, we will explore in a way that is safe and comfortable for you. You don't have to live with fear. I invite you to give me a call.

Anxiety Counsellor

Derek Martin, PhD

Canadian Certified Counsellor

1517 Amelia Street, Victoria, British Columbia

It could be said that people have never been more busy. It is not surprisingly that anxiety and stress have become epidemic. We find ourselves running to keep up, and by never pausing for reflection, it is easy to forget what we are running for. Unfortunately many of us don't realize the cost until it culminates in symptoms like panic attacks, debilitating fatigue, and health crises. Psychotherapy can make us pause to bring consciousness back into the equation, and help us to remember what we are running from and to discover where we should be going instead. It is a healing relationship that can bring us back to ourselves, and to who we are when the training shoes fall away.

Anxiety can be so debilitating and isolating. I can help you develop self-regulation skills so that you can stop avoiding the parts of your life where anxiety shows up the most.

Anxiety Counsellor

Janice Graham, Ph.D., RCC

Psychotherapist and Registered Clinical Counsellor

547 Michigan Street, suite #203, Victoria, British Columbia

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

Tom Burton, CTA, RTC, MTC

Certified Transactional Analyst and Master Therapeutic Counsellor

1921 Fernwood Road, Unit 5, 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

Sharolyn Sloat, PhD, CPBC #1666

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

453 Head Street, West Bay Marina, Victoria, British Columbia

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.
