Treatment is tailored to each individual person and is a collaborative effort between client and therapist. A holistic therapy approach is utilized, which is the combination of contemporary and alternative treatments with evidence-based practices to assist a person in achieving balance in mind, body, and energy. A deeper understanding of the whole self can lead to increased self-awareness, self-esteem, self-acceptance, and emotional/physical well-being.

I take a practical approach to treating anxiety and stress. I help you identify the sources of anxiety if you do not already know them. I support you in learning skills to regulate your emotions and increase awareness of body sensations and experiences in order to help you be able to control and reduce feelings of anxiety.

You don't have to be anxious anymore! The biggest secret to being anxiety free, lies in understanding what anxiety really is. It is a generalized "fear" with no object. This means that the anxious person honestly answers the question, "What are you afraid of?" with "I don't know." When you come to therapy with me, I will teach how to answer the most important question that you can ask yourself, "What is behind the anxiety?" When you pay attention to the bodily sensations that exist "behind" your anxiety, the change process begins. In time, with successful treatment, you will experience a sense of peace. Calm confidence can become your usual or normal experience as the anxiety fades.

Carlsbad, California 92011 | 1-877-606-6161

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.
