Are you caught in a stress / anxiety cycle, feeling on edge all the time? Struggling with post traumatic panic, nightmares / flashbacks, anger, irritability or insomnia? My approach to anxiety and stress will help you tame your triggers, confront your fears, reduce your stress, and understand how the body produces feelings of anxiety when the mind believes a threat exists. It's not unusual for survivors of abuse and persons growing up in a shame-blame atmosphere to develop a reactive stress / anxiety response. I help clients heal these emotional wounds and build confidence in an ability to handle challenges without falling apart. See my website for more details.

Life events make everyone prone to anxiety and stress. The fact is everyone will experience multiple stressful events in their lifetime. Such events include stressful work environment, financial loss, illness, death, relationship loss. The manner in which each person deals with these events will determine their survivability and overall functioning. When you understand that life events are like a valley with periods of high and lows (peak and trough), the quicker you will seek to get out from the bottom of the valley and make your way to the top.

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.

Ideally, stress prepares us to take action by activating our sympathetic nervous system and improving mental focus. If we are too relaxed (i.e., not stressed enough), then we’re likely to be less motivated and less primed for physical action, thus inhibiting our ability to respond well to a situation. If we are under too much stress, we also suffer as our body stiffens and we lose our mental edge.

Because anxiety and stress can interfere with relationships, sleeping patterns, eating habits, work, school, and routine activities, anxiety and stress one of the most common reasons people seek therapy, and effective therapy can significantly reduce or eliminate symptoms associated with both anxiety and stress in a relatively short time, allowing a person to resume regular activities and regain a sense of control.

My approach in working with stress and anxiety disorders is much the same as it is for depression, since anxiety and depression are on a continuum (I often describe them as a seesaw). Treatment modalities include, but are not limited to, stress reduction, meditation and teaching self-hypnosis, nutritional supplementation, cognitive-behavioral treatment, desensitization, and talk therapy in conjunction with medication. I welcome the opportunity to help you look at and learn to approach your stress or anxiety in more constructive ways!
