Anxiety Counsellor

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

Michelle Gay, M.A., RCC, CCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Canadian Certified Counsellor, Teacher (BC and TESL Canada)

1124 Fort Street, Victoria, British Columbia

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).

Anxiety Counsellor

Marlene Brouwer, BA MTS Diplomate Analytic Psych

Jungian Analyst & Psychotherapist

#802, 1020 View Street, Victoria, BC, VICTORIA, British Columbia

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.

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.

Anxiety Counsellor

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 Counsellor

Maryse Neilson, MSW, RSW

Counsellor and Registered Social Worker

Cedar Hill/Saanich, Victoria, British Columbia

Anxiety and stress seem to be ever-present in our world today. Feeling anxious and stressed can often feel inevitable but we do have choices and we can behave differently when confronted with anxiety and stress provoking situations. With over 10 years experience developing resilience promoting programs and services, I will help you gain increased control over your reaction and have you feeling more confident and in charge of yourself. Resilience is a quality and a skill that can be learned.

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 Counselor

Alain Langlais, MH, RTC, CHHt


Online Therapist / Coach

Feelings of anxiety can become so intense that it becomes overwhelming. Often individuals struggling with anxiety express constant intruding thoughts that focus on fears of events of the future. Anxiety can create physical feelings of distress like a tight chest that makes it difficult to breath, an upset or tight feeling in the stomach, and general fatigue from constantly trying to control their thoughts and actions. Some people have battled anxiety for so long that they begin to believe it is just who they are and accept the restrictions it causes in their life. Through counselling we will work to break the cycle of anxiety controlling your inner world. Bringing a sense of relief, control and freedom that has been absent for so long.

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.

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

Laurie Moniz, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselling

Suite 204-4480 West Saanich Road, Victoria , British Columbia

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.
