You will learn where your anxiety and stress come from and find creative ways to explore it and heal it. Anxiety can be very complicated. I will help reflect characteristics, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions that you are unable to see in yourself. The more you learn about yourself, the more predictable life becomes and the lower stress we experience on a daily basis. Daily stress equals chronic stress. Chronic stress is very unhealthy for us. You will learn coping skills for your in-the-moment anxiety and long-term skills to lower chronic stress. I am a Certified HeartMath Practitioner and can work with you through HRV biofeedback to reduce stress.

Isn't it impossible to go through life and not experience anxiety and stress sometimes? A lyric from the song, "Sunny Side of the Street" comes to me in relation to worry and anxiety: "leave your troubles at the doorstep." Of course, this isn't always easy, or even possible. When you're anxious, you experience it as a body sensation, don't you? Coming in for a session will help you listen to your body. Its tension is a message that we will decode together. Sometimes outside stress triggers old reactions, and your body takes a bigger hit than it would if you were only reacting to what's outside. By coming to see me, you will benefit by learning to manage and reduce your anxiety.

Art focuses on clients to re-encounter the positive skills they have already known and used, but that life problems made them temporarily forget. This way, clients rely on their own strengths and initiatives for their lives. Treatment will also provide opportunities to learn and apply new skills that in time will become part of the clients' lives.Tool Box for Life and Relational Skills When clients graduate from treatment, they take with them a box full of "tools", such as effective anger management techniques, avoiding confrontations that lead to negative expressions of anger, resolving conflict peacefully and quietly, making the right decisions in every aspect of life, and perseverance to alw....

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 is a feeling that we experience at some point in our life. It’s that feeling of intense nervousness and fear that translate into physical symptoms. For some, the experience occurs more frequently with more severity and can go from occurring periodically to an everyday feeling. It can take a toll on your daily life ranging from your health, outlook on life to how you function socially. You will learn where your feelings of anxiety are stemming from and why they are so persistent. You will also become aware of how your physical and emotional symptoms not only connect, but how they trigger one another. Becoming complacent with anxiety shouldn't be a norm. Let's find your happiness.

Anxiety is a signal your mind is sending to alert you of a real or perceived threat. For example, you are stressed about work: perhaps anxiety is a sign that your fear you are not good enough. There are situations in life when you need a signal so that you make the right decision at the right moment; but when anxiety is too intense, you feel paralyzed and cannot make decisions because all options seem to lead to the worst case scenario. I will help you learn from your anxiety so that you can look beyond the discomfort and understand what is the concern or fear underneath it; then we will work directly with that fear or concern.

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.

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.

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.

New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Counseling clients with anxiety and managing stress is my reason for choosing this field to work in. For a period of my life, I was overcome with anxiety and panic attacks. This is no longer the case and my belief and my understanding that this can happen for clients I have seen as a result of getting help. The feelings are painful and in my case, became unbearable. The fear creates the fear. The "what if"? that starts every sentence. Whether it is to assess your options, learn techniques for mindfulness or learning how to deal with triggers, it is my goal as a therapist to assist you with gaining your life back. No one is anxiety free but it should not ruin your life.

In 11434 - Nearby to Dobbs Ferry.

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.

If you suffer from anxiety or stress then you know how it impacts upon your life. This is such a large topic. It could include ocd, panic attacks, low self esteem, ...poor relationships to numerous other issues. My approach depends upon who you are and what your issues are. I like to think of myself as being non-judgmental, creating an atmosphere where you are comfortable telling me your story. When that happens we can then identify the issue and choose strategic approaches that will fit with your views and personality so in the end you can have a life without the anxiety and stress that you are feeling presently.

My method of working with clients on anxiety , stress and coping varies per individual. How we cope is greatly influenced by how we see the world. Mindset, life experiences, and our current situation can impact that. Overall, integrating Strength- Based, Mindfulness, NLP even DBT approaches enhances our ability to accept, and view our life with a fresh perspective. As we begin to see things through a different lens, this new perspective becomes a powerful tool in developing our mind as a muscle; an essential part of moving toward the life changes you seek. This opens the door to management of unwanted symptoms, anxiety, stress, feelings of overwhelm or low motivation and a path forward.
