Anxiety and stress are inevitable in any walk of life. We experience both as a response to situation in which we do not know the outcome or that we don't have the adaptive coping skills to abate the negative feelings and emotions. Therapy teaches individuals about what triggering events cause anxiety and stress, how to reframe it into a positive, and what self-regulation techniques one can use to calm down and navigate through the situation productively.

Many clients present with increasing levels of stress and anxiety in their lives. Therapy becomes centered around identifying triggers for anxiety symptoms, recent stressors in their lives, and identifying symptoms. Often times, we find together that anxiety has been in their life for a long time and that old patterns of behavior has accompanied it. We explore some of those patterns to identify the triggers and find new coping skills to practice when stress arrives. I find it helpful to collaborate with the client on setting goals and working at a speed that is comfortable to each client. This provides empowerment and confidence in working toward new ways of handling the stresses of living.

It can be hard for people who experience various challenges to have the confidence or desire to approach a professional. Not only we are generally too embarrassed to ask for help in unraveling our feelings, healthy functional people suffer the double stigma. Since they are used to being highly functional in most, if not all aspects of their lives, when they face unfamiliar emotional challenges it can be hard to accept or understand it. In many occasions it is not easy to say: hey, I am dealing with something that I don’t have the tools to resolve! I truly care about them and want the best possible results.

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.

Anxiety and stress are like an evil and corrosive thread that work their way through every aspect of a life. It can rob the joy that can make life worth living.

I handle anxiety and stress in many ways but a few ways are through TRAUMA counseling, I can use EMDR which is a way to handle almost any trauma, Brain Spotting, or Havening Touch. All these methods are gentle and can be used on children as well. I also love the 12 step models for using good boundaries and just sometimes learning how to say NO. I was trained by Pia Melody, a master in teaching her CoDependence method. I have also used Hypnosis in the past and can easily use Visualization for my clients. I always give homework for my clients to continue the work at home. Many clients don't know that after they leave my office their therapy keeps on working and may manifest in change!

Anxiety occurs when you have several different emotions that build up to the point where you become overwhelmed. I provide a particular approach to anxiety that may not only help you to lower your anxiety threshold (leading to less anxiety and fewer panic attacks), but to identify the myriad feelings that make up your particular type of anxiety. Then, as we figure them out, understand them, and find new ways of expression, it may naturally help lower your anxiety level. We might also use certain stress management techniques that I developed when I taught stress management courses for several years.

In 90045 - Nearby to Palos Verdes Estates.

In treating anxiety, the most impotant issues is interupting the cycle of worry, obessing over worry, fearing the return of worry, and allowing worry to spread to every aspect of your life. Discriminating realistic reasons to worry from irrational reasons can help clients with excessive stress to cope. Interupting and redirecting thoughts of anxiety to more productive thoughts and activities will interupt the cycle that creates habitual anxiety. We will look at times you may over-react to triggers (be it an upcoming social situation, or a stumbling block that creates more stress and predictions of failure). We will take this path together. You are not alone.

Anxiety is an inability to be fully relaxed. It is mental and physical tension. Many things cause it and many things perpetuate it. Not all anxiety is bad or needs to be extinguished. I work with the client to understand the meaning of their anxiety. I find sometimes people are not consciously aware of the real reasons they cannot feel relaxed. Enlisting the client's sense of curiosity about their own thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations I aim to identify their symptoms of anxiety and the origins of them. I utilize cognitive behavioral and mindfulness strategies to identify and replace unhelpful thoughts with more productive ones.

Most of us have some relationship with stress and anxiety, and it's no wonder: our society offers us daily opportunities to deepen our anxiety or increase our stress level. One or more sources of anxiety is often quite manageable, but life has a way of throwing multiple stressors at us at once. When several problems work together to conspire against us, it is often overwhelming.
