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.

Stress is a fact of life. Work, school, finances, relationships, raising children, concerns about the future, and countless other issues can be overwhelming. We simply cannot handle long-term, chronic stress without health consequences. Anxiety goes hand-in-glove with stress. Stress can lead to feelings of anxiety, and anxiety often heightens stress levels. This feedback loop can feel crazy-making, overwhelming, and get in the way of everything. In my practice, I help people to better understand stress and anxiety, and learn ways to deepen their ability to cope, and move toward enjoying increased peace of mind and sense of stability. Contact me for a free 30-minute consultation to discuss how we can work together toward getting you feeling like you are more in control of your life.

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.

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.

Some amount of anxiety and stress is a normal and necessary reaction to life events and situations. Yet, too much or too little can create obstacles to living your life fully and peacefully. I can help you to learn and practice skills needed to manage anxiety and to improve interactions with people in your life. We can also work together to reduce, and in some cases, take the "charge" out of the intensity of the triggers that cause unhelpful anxious reactions. Different therapies we can use include to talk therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and/or EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

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 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.

I work holistically with anxiety and life stressors/transitions, believing in a three pronged approach that includes diet/nutrition, physical exercise and dealing with chronic stress and trauma. Addressing all 3 of these areas as well as learning various strategies and tools to deal with stress and anxiety directly can help alleviate your symptoms relatively quickly. In addition, we will take a personalized look at what isn't working in your life and what is fueling your response. Healing looks different for everyone, and I will work with you to sort out your unique situation, and help bring you back in to alignment with your authentic self.

I am honoured that you are interested in my services and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been described as slightly non-conventional in the counselling world, which suits me perfectly, and also tends to suit youth who are trying to stand up to the force of the problems in their life. I am very comfortable working with this population, and I feel fortunate that I can connect with teens the way I do, conventionally or in a way that makes sense to them.

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.

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 and anxiety are often caused by uncertainty; feelings of loss of control, unresolved conflict or emotional isolation. These thoughts and experiences tend to create a sense of overwhelm, that life is out of our control. Laurie can help you develop coping behaviors so that you can live a more balanced life, where your energy can be spent on living, rather than on stress and worry. Through working with Laurie and implementing various exercises and techniques, she can help you become more aware of patterns that our thoughts and emotions get caught up in. Once you become aware of these patterns, we are in a better position to alter them; this includes changing our patterns of responses that we experience as stress or anxiety.
