Stress is a normal part of our daily experience. Too much stress can bring devastating consequences including stomach issues, increased blood pressure, difficulty sleeping, increased fatigue, reduced immunity to illness, physical pain and can make us more vulnerable to mood issues like anger and depression. Finding proven ways to cope with stress can provide joy throughout our entire lives. When we stop worrying about our lives and start being present and actively participating in our daily world, we often find the relief and comfort that we have been seeking all along.

A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.

People often use the terms "anxiety" and "stress" interchangeably. Though a certain level of anxiety is a normal, healthy and an adaptive response to our environment, many therapists consider anxiety as an internal compass that indicates areas of possible self growth. For others, living with heightened anxiety and stress on a daily basis can be exhausting and potentially crippling. If you feel your anxiety is getting the best of you and has become a daily burden, then let's talk! Like Depression, there are various treatments models for anxiety that can be extremely effective in giving you back you a sense of control over your life again.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

In 06824 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

I help people identify the triggers to their anxiety and develop a system to deal with stress before it deals with them! What would your life be like if you weren't continually activated in negative ways by stress? We will work together to make small steps toward change. Clients report less chronic pain when they are managing anxiety in healthy ways. It is possible to reduce anxiety and live life in a more vivid way, even if you situation is not optimal. I can teach you to acknowledge and release these negative thoughts, thus releasing the "trauma" that has built up in your body (stored stress and anxiety)

Pre-Licenced Professional Counselor

Anxiety is a normal emotion that generates a lot of energy even in stressful situations. Uncontrolled anxiety is harmful and often counterproductive. Understanding the specific triggers of your anxiety will keep them from tipping you over the edge. Applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will help you learn different ways of thinking, behaving, and reacting to anxiety-producing and stressful situations. Developing the ability to remain in the present will help you learn how to control and limit the negative effects of anxiety in your life to promote your well-being.

To most benefit clients with anxiety and stress, I use a Progressive Muscle Relaxation Exercise that the client practices at home. This repetition insures that the client incorporates the relaxation techniques as part of his system to combat anxiety and stress. Stress management techniques also are helpful tools to get past trying times. Moreover, I encourage clients to get out in the fresh air, when possible, and to exercise.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 06880 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

My approach to anxiety and stress begins with listening to learn what stressors are affecting the client's mood and behavior and determining whether other conditions, such as depression, are a factor. I then focus on developing strategies, including cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-oriented psychotherapy to alleviate the symptoms and help clients move past their anxiety and return to functioning normally.

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.
