I help people identify the triggers to their anxiety and develop a system to deal with stress before it deals with them! What would your life be like if you weren't continually activated in negative ways by stress? We will work together to make small steps toward change. Clients report less chronic pain when they are managing anxiety in healthy ways. It is possible to reduce anxiety and live life in a more vivid way, even if you situation is not optimal. I can teach you to acknowledge and release these negative thoughts, thus releasing the "trauma" that has built up in your body (stored stress and anxiety)

In today’s world anxiety and stress cannot be avoided, they are innate signals that danger is ahead and we should mobilize ourselves against it. So anxiety can be very helpful at moderate levels (e.g. getting us to study for an exam). But high levels of anxiety can be paralyzing especially when there is no identifiable danger. In working with clients around these issues I take a multifaceted approach, exploring his or her current circumstances (e.g. family, work, etc.), and experiences in the past that may have contributed to the current problem. I also focus on helping to alleviate symptoms with practical suggestions like exercise and meditation as well as the use of hypnosis and guided imagery.

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 stress is often symptomatic of internal conflict that creates the perception of threat. If we liken ourselves to a collection of different personality traits who all serve important functions, then the goal in reducing stress and anxiety is to make a conscious space to integrate, coordinate, and tailor, these sides of ourselves for optimal functioning. When we can learn to be the benevolent, kind, curious, and autonomous facilitator of such a network then we cease to be at the mercy of internalized critics who we continued to depend on in unhealthy ways beyond their capacities to offer effective guidance.

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....

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.

At some point, we all experience anxiety and stress. For New Yorkers in particular, anxiety and stress are a part of our everyday lives. They can cause panic attacks, phobias, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), frustration, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), heart disease, diabetes, isolation, high blood pressure, loss of sleep, irrational fears, muscle tension and depression. Often times it stems from genetics, relationships, illness, financial worries, or a major life event, such as marriage, divorce, loss or change of job. With decades of experience, I can help you develop ways in which you can effectively reduce your stress in order to regain a sense of both physical and mental well-being

There are six major types of anxiety disorders: post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and phobias. Each type of anxiety has overlapping qualities, but there are distinct symptoms between them as well. Many of my clients come to me suffering from anxiety and, depending upon which type of anxiety my client is experiencing, I customize my treatment to help them find relief. For a therapist, having intimate knowledge about the different types of anxiety is critical in order to provide the best treatment possible.

In these sessions you'll learn how to turn a threat into an opportunity. How you can recognize and than pause when you're in fight or flight mode. This is an old, antiquated program, or story. You'll learn how to challenge this old story, to explore different ones and than to choose and act on your newer , better version. Lastly, you'll begin to understand what it means to "try easier" and how changing your pace and slowing down allows you to move from anxiety and doubt, to confidence and taking control.

Anxiety and stress are something we all have to deal with. It can result in panic attacks, phobias, sleep disorders, physical symptoms that can resemble medical conditions, as well as effect our overall physical health. Identifying triggers and effective coping mechanisms are good first steps to helping avoid and alleviate symptoms, but ultimately it is necessary to find out what caused the anxiety in the first place. This may be a recent event or something that happened decades to go. Giving yourself time to work through it is an essential factor, as pressure to improve too quickly and deadlines can be anxiety-producing.
