I use a very practical approach to anxiety and stress by simply exploring what it is that puts you in a state of overwhelm. We then look together for ways to decrease your stress be it by either 'adjust your thinking' or by making small but effective changes to your daily living. Anxiety and perfectionism often go hand in hand, we will therefore explore how much internal 'unnecessary' pressure you put on yourself and find ways to decrease that pressure.

I often find that the lack of emotional regulation in a person's young life has left them with a huge ability to be anxious and feel stress. Teaching emotional regulation is the first avenue I try. Discovering the thought life of an anxious person gives many clues as to what is feeding the anxiety. I have found using DBT or CBT as methods to retrain and reduce anxiety to be very useful.

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.

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.
