Anxiety seems to have a life of its own. Fear of having anxiety brings more anxiety, even panic. What does one do when anxiety, stress and panic hit? Seems everything that is done makes it worse. Anxiety, stress, panic attacks, seem to come out of nowhere & present with a pressure/demand to “do something” to make them stop or go away. Is it all chemical imbalance…fear from the past or present-a new situation…a fear of the future & what can or might happen...all of the above? I help my clients with understanding of their lives, the roots of their personal anxiety & struggle with it, by providing a safe place and skills that provide “breathing room” to break free from the grips of anxiety.

If you’re not stressed, you’re probably dead! Our world today seems to thrive on it; we work too much, don’t rest enough, eat poorly, and can’t find time to exercise. When we have free time, we often find ourselves staring at a little screen filled with “friends” whose lives seem perfect. This “normal” life causes us physical and emotional distress; add in a propensity for anxiety and chances are you feel really horrible sometimes! Whether you’re simply overwhelmed by life’s responsibilities or are struggling with severe anxiety, panic, and phobias, we can help!

Life can be stressful but how we handle and respond to that stress is what makes the difference. I will begin by completing a thorough assessment to find the underlying causes for your stress and/or anxiety. A very important distinction it that often individuals are stressing themselves. They may blame a situation or another person but whether to be stressed or not is a choice. We will focus on looking at the source of stress in a different way---to put you in the driver's seat through a series of decisions. For example, can you get away from the stressor? Maybe you are also carrying someone else's stress. We will focus on the development of coping skills/strategies.

Anxiety disorders are one of the biggest, and yet one of the most untreated, mental health challenges in the U.S. It's been estimated that over 40 million adults in the U.S. meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder. My primary approach to reduce anxiety, and stress, is typically a combination of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Meditation/Guided Imagery. Initially, however, I help my clients become aware of the the stress and anxiety triggers and we find alternative methods to cope with these triggers.

Society demands a lot from you. Maybe you often feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and like your brain won't slow down. The inner critic can get loud with the 'what ifs' and worst case scenarios. Thinking positive thoughts isn't usually enough to help your brain and nervous system feel calm and safe. In my work with clients, we focus on strategies that reach the body, brain, and nervous system functioning to create peace, safety, and balance.

If left to its own devices, the mind can perceive and operate in such a way as to instill much anxiety and stress in a person. To the person, it may appear a "natural" response to whatever they're going through. Things can even get overwhelming. And yet they may notice that others going through similar, or even worse, situations don't respond that way. This is a hint that they, too, can do better. To confidentially air their concerns with a professional skilled in listening and responding can be very helpful. To acquire and practice new knowledge in emotional managing can be empowering. Mindfulness is also often an asset in leaving behind anxiety and stress.

Anxiety, stress, panic, phobias, and obsessions are personal challenges that respond well to cognitive behavior therapy, stress inoculation training, and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. Regardless of the strategy, the focus is to desensitize the issue causing the disturbance. Relaxation training is part of that process. Accelerated Resolution Therapy can reduce corresponding physiological symptoms and desensitize clients to the provoking stimuli. Thereafter, it is often helpful to build skills to help manage future stressful situations.

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.
