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.

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.

Registered Clinical Counselling

Suite 204-4480 West Saanich Road, Victoria , British Columbia V8Z 3E9 | (250) 881 1806

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

Anxiety and stress can appear to hold us prisoner and keep us stuck in limiting behavior patterns. The root of this condition is always Fear. Yet our core selves come from the highest of vibrations, which is Love. Within our human circumstances its easy to forget our own magnificence, and resort to fearful responses that hold us back and keep us small. When we remember who we really are... that "we are not our fears" and that we are so much more - then we can draw on our courage and resilience to venture into new and exciting experiences.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

Cadboro Bay area, Victoria, British Columbia V8N 1L6 | 250-686-9601

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.

A life, free from worry, stress, and anxiety- this is what we want for you. What is going on? How are you thinking? How are you feeling? What worries you? These are questions that we may start with in a therapy session that addresses anxiety and stress. We offer plenty of tools to help the anxious person change the way their brain is working. We want to cool down anxiety and stress, and learn acceptance and relaxation.

Psychologist (Registered with CPBC)

453 Head Street, West Bay Marina, Victoria, British Columbia V9A 5S1 | 250.884.9041

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.
