Life is stressful. Stress can cause anxiety if it is not dealt with effectively. Understanding what stressors you have are important to begin reducing the level of anxiety. Talking with someone is a great way to begin to sort out the things that are really causing the stress, and then to formulate a plan to reduce the stress. Secondly, it is important to learn how to manage anxiety. Anxiety is caused by the tension between two opposite pressures. For example, you want to get a degree, so you need to take the speech class, but you can't stand the idea of getting up in front of people. Learning how to cope in these situations can help you to reach the goals you want to in life.

If you're struggling with anxious thoughts, you may find it hard to focus. The fight or flight alarm is going off in your brain, constantly sending you messages starting with "what if...." If worrying is keeping you trapped in a hamster wheel, tired, but unable to rest, you may find yourself turning to addictive substances or behaviours to cope. As an addiction counsellor, I help clients cope with the anxious thoughts keeping them trapped in addictive behaviours. By uncovering these underlying thoughts, I help you develop coping skills so you can gain a sense of focus, clarity, confidence, and freedom from constantly overthinking. Send me a message and I'll guide you through the next steps.

A certain amount of anxiety and stress is expected and common in everyday life. When our response to these things becomes "stuck" or in "overdrive", we end up having a difficult time. This is part of the "fight, flight or freeze" response that our mind and body does automatically. At some point in life we needed to respond in this way, unfortunately we subconsciously stayed there without going back to our previous state of calm. Together we can find the reasons why and then increase your awareness and coping skills so YOU are in control again.
