Anxiety and stress take a hold on you and never let go, leaving you trapped and frozen. I help my clients to learn all about the magic of mindfulness practice. It's one of the most effective ways to put you in control of your emotions, rather than them controlling you. Imagine how great it would be to have an internal place of peace and serenity that you can use at any time to relax and become grounded. Mindfulness is an ancient practice that is also supported by scientific empirical studies. It's one of the best ways to change your life.

Clients can navigate stressful and distressing events in the present by healing from past painful or traumatic life experiences. Processing the events can decrease emotional response and increase cognitive flexibility. Clients struggling from feeling emotionally hurt, isolated, selfish, helpless, or hopeless can gain insight into symptoms and treatment of depression. Clients can learn emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal relationship skills and heal from past painful experiences that may influence current thoughts and belief systems in an unhealthy way.

Do you worry about work constantly when you’re at home, or feel anxious and tense even about small events? Is your mind riddled with a powerless sense of imminent danger, a place where rising panic can be difficult to quell? Does your apprehension make it difficult to get on with regular life and enjoy each day? Do you struggle with recurrent thoughts that bring about fear, doubt and anxiety and compel you to engage in safety and sometimes nonsensical behaviors? These signs and symptoms are common in those suffering from anxiety disorders. Anxiety and fear can have even paralyzing effects in many aspects of your life; however, there is hope for a calm and serene existence.

Anxiety can take many forms, including excessive stress, low self-esteem, panic attacks, phobias and compulsions. When fear or anxiety is experienced on a daily basis it can become so familiar that it goes un-noticed until problems arise that grab our attention. These can include health problems, insomnia or feeling stuck in bad relationships. Addressing anxiety can free up your energy and enjoyment, and give you back your life.

Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist

In 11516 - Nearby to Ridgefield Park.

Anxiety is the way our minds let us know that something is bothering us. A LOT! When helping you work with your anxiety, I invite anxiety to join us on our journey of discovery; understanding what anxiety is trying to communicate with us and the world. By opening that door, we gain control of the anxiety and can begin lowering symptoms by addressing real life issues that may be causing this uncomfortable feeling within. I have helped anxious clients improve emotional balance, increase feelings of calmness, inner peace, as well as learning how to use anxiety as powerful tool and not a stumbling block.

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 and strees are deeply uncomfortable, and so often we want to get rid of it because we feel ashamed that we feel anxious in the first place. However, if we can get a little bit curious about our anxiety, it has so much wisdom. When we allow ourselves to be with our anxiety it can tell us so much about the beliefs we hold unconsciously that are steering our life. We can then begin to rewrite these beliefs and choose a different way to experience ourselves. When we can acknowledge that our anxiety has a purpose we can uncover our deepest wisdom. We can help with that. Get in touch with us today.

Most individuals will encounter stress and anxiety throughout different times in life. How you manage stress is of key importance. When stress and anxiety overwhelm us we lose our footing. The Cognitive Behavioral approach to how we manage these stressors has become one of the most effective ways to regain control over our thoughts and behavior. Learning mindfulness techniques and recognizing ineffective thought patterns are tools you will learn to regain that footing. Let's work together so stress and anxiety does not continually become so overwhelming. Life's stressors are manageable wen you employ the right tools.

In 11434 - Nearby to Ridgefield Park.

We have all had moments of anxiety and we remain anxious due to the beliefs we hold about our reality and the thoughts we have about our situation. An individual becomes anxious when they overestimate the negative aspects of their situation and underestimate their ability to cope and function in problem situations. The anxious individual will imagine and create even more negative consequences than are actually present. I guide my clients to a more rational approach of focusing on the task at hand, not engaging in or imagining negative outcomes, and not engaging in or exaggerating possible negative outcomes. We focus together on ways that enable coping, behavioral change and flourishing in that situation.

A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.

I have experience with reducing and eliminating panic attacks, curing phobias, and reducing more generalized anxiety. Anxiety can feel unbearable, and give you the sense that you are in danger. Here also looking at relationships can be very helpful to determine where your anxiety comes from, as babies aren't born believing that the world is a dangerous place. We might progress to uncovering important thoughts and feelings your anxiety may be distracting you from. "Going to university about yourself" can be instrumental in providing relief from anxiety and reassure you that you are not alone.

Art focuses on clients to re-encounter the positive skills they have already known and used, but that life problems made them temporarily forget.

It's hard not to feel stress in today's world. Constant exposure to stress, without tools and practice to manage it begin to affect our physical health as well as emotional and mental well-being. Learning self-hypnosis, mindfulness and breathing techniques and reduce stress and improve how we react to stressful situations. Journaling, doodling, and visioning also reduce the impact of stress. Even if you don't consider yourself an artist, painting and drawing create peace thoughts. Learning a new hobby, such as knitting, whatever your age or gender, is documented to reduce stress. You can learn these techniques, strategies and skills in the comfort and privacy of my office.

Anxiety is excessive worry about negative events that you expect to happen, but are not necessarily in the cards. The worry is enough to bring on dread, panic, obsessions, compulsions, and phobias. Usually, early life experiences – perhaps forgotten or suppressed -- taught you to anticipate the worst. Together, we will bring these memories into consciousness so you can consider if they still apply to you in your current life as an adult. This will help you stay more grounded in the reality of the here and now, which can significantly reduce anxious symptoms. I will also teach you calming techniques, including mindfulness practices and self-compassion to counter anxiety when it arises.
