Our brains are designed to fight or flight in scary life threatening situations. However, sometimes what our brains think is scary is actually irrational and we end up with avoidant behaviors, low self esteem, and poor boundaries because it's scary to confront situations head on. My psychotherapy sessions begin with identifying triggers to the anxiety, current negative coping skills that you utilize to manage the symptoms, and identifying the thoughts and feelings attributed to the anxiety so we can work together to change thought processes and create positive skills to sustainably manage anxiety.

Anxiety and stress counseling benefit by sorting through those parts of your life that are unsettling or overwhelming. Anxiety is based on fears, whether conscious or unconscious that counseling discusses in order to understand, problem solve and make peace with. I also teach Breathing lessons to reduce stress from my practice as a yoga teacher.

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.

Our modern lives often put us in a state of persistent stress, leading to restlessness, irritability, and anxiety. What perplexes us is: the more we try to get rid of our anxiety, the more the anxiety seems to have a tight control over us — a phenomenon called the "control paradox." People often try to get rid of their anxiety with a coping strategy called “experiential avoidance.” Unfortunately, avoiding what we fear only ends up perpetuating our anxiety. The good news is: anxiety disorders are highly treatable with counseling/therapy. Don't allow anxiety to take your life quality away from you! You can reclaim your inner peace and equanimity. Help is available.

Today's world brings many stressors into our lives. I would encourage the individual to discuss their stressors, and assist them in learning positive coping strategies. Sometimes it is difficult to make these changes after years of habits, but I would stress the benefits of change. I would encourage the individual not to have such impossible standards for their behavior, which often leads to stress and anxiety. I have found that many individuals who are supportive of their friends often over extend themselves, so I would also encourage healthy boundaries.

I work with individuals who have experienced some kind of stressful life event. I help them work through the stressor and in the process they learn better ways to manage their stress and anxiety. They will then be able to resolve the life stressor which allows them to turn the potential defeat into a personal victory. As a result my clients often end up with increased self confidence as a result of dealing with their stressful life event.

Anxiety is a normal part of the human experience, especially when encountering the unfamiliar or a threat of some kind. However, when symptoms of anxiety become chronic or are out of proportion to one's life circumstances, the detrimental impact can be profound; in effect, a narrowing of life experiences from the inside. My approach to the treatment of anxiety is based on the premise that anxiety can be understood as a message from the unconscious, that once grasped, results in lasting symptom relief. By achieving adequate relief of acute symptoms, the necessary inner exploration becomes possible for bringing to light to the root cause of the anxiety.
