Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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 can be a normal part of living. On a daily basis, we face pressures and stress from all directions. At times, however, you may begin to feel overwhelmed by heightened fears and find yourself worrying about events and hypotheticals outside of your control.

Adults tend to view the world of children as happy and carefree. After all, kids don't have jobs to keep or bills to pay, so what could they possibly have to worry about? Plenty! Even very young children have worries and feel stress to some degree. Stress is a function of the demands placed on us and our ability to meet them. These demands often come from outside sources, such as family, jobs, friends, or school. But it also can come from within, often related to what we think we should be doing versus what we're actually able to do. So stress can affect anyone who feels overwhelmed — even kids.

Unfortunately we all can relate to feeling overwhelmed and “stressed out.” We help clients focus on the physical and emotional effects of stress, the unhealthy ways we normally try to “cope,” and learn positive techniques for coping in healthy ways. There are a number of effective strategies that help with managing and reducing stress. Anxiety can be result of prolonged or intense stress. It can also be more biochemical in nature. We take a varied approach to dealing with anxiety so that our clients experience relief from what can be debilitating symptoms. Panic and anxiety are our body's way of saying something is wrong. Let us help figure how what to change so that you can live freely.
