It might be helpful to have behavioral tools to manage anxiety and stress, but those tools might not be instantly available when a person is under extreme duress. I have begun to use hypnosis to help clients access a felt sense of calm and inner peace even while upset occurs in daily life. Hypnosis can help clients identify and access their own strengths and resources, to apply to stress management in new ways.

This has been labeled the age of anxiety. It is easy to see why - we live in a constant state of stress-inducing issues. Money, employment, children, marriage, health, aging, can all lead to feelings of stress and sometimes overwhelming anxiety. But we do not have to live with the stress. We can learn how to respond in a healthy way to the stress in our lives. I can help you address these issues, as well as make a plan to live as stress-free as you possibly can.

I specialize in helping people through anxiety and stress, whether it be related to dynamics with family, career, or related to past trauma. People often have anxiety or panic attacks and feel that it is medically related, only to arrive at the hospital ER and find out that it is emotionally related. This is common, because anxiety attacks often affect heart rate and bodily sensations. I have tools to help clients overcome severe anxiety and stress. Clients often find relief once they are able to understand the source of their anxiety and what to do about it.

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.

Anxiety and stress sometimes seem like they are impossible to escape in today’s world. But when they are your constant companions, therapy can help you find ways to put them back in perspective and restore a sense of peace and calm. I work with you not only to manage the symptoms but also to identify underlying reasons for the anxiety. By employing a “top down and bottom up” approach, you can experience long-lasting relief from your 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.
