Anxiety and stress are experienced by everyone!! So what makes one person more or less stressed than another? Why do some people have a greater sense of well-being than others? Well-being and stress live in opposition to one another. Working together, we will get to why some things are stressful and triggering anxiety while others do not, as well as how to reduce stressors and causes of anxiety so that your well-being increases proportionately.

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.

Anxiety and stress, characterized by persistent worry, restlessness, and physical symptoms, can significantly impact daily functioning. Engaging in therapy can be immensely beneficial in managing these conditions. Therapies like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) help individuals understand the root causes of their anxiety, recognize unhelpful thinking patterns, and develop effective coping strategies. Techniques such as mindfulness and relaxation exercises can also be learned to manage stress levels. Therapy provides a safe space to explore triggers, foster resilience, and enhance overall mental well-being, leading to a more balanced and fulfilling life.

I will show you how you make yourself anxious about the things you find threatening and challenging. Anxiety and stress are largely self-created by the beliefs we tacitly hold about adversity or potential adversity. I will show you your self-defeating beliefs and teach you how to think so you feel sensible concern and do what you can do to avoid danger and threats. I will show you how to philosophically accept what cannot be avoided and thereby minimize the stress you feel about what cannot be changed or avoided. Using the power of your own ability to think in a self-helping way I will help you to change your feelings of anxiety.

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.

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.

Living with excessive worry and uncontrollable negative thoughts may impede your functioning during the day and keep you up at night. When anxiety impacts your ability to live comfortably, therapy can help. Using CBT and concrete coping skills I’m able to help clients to cope with stress, address specific fears, and alter negative self-talk. I also incorporate psychodynamic insight-oriented interventions, to help clients dive deeper to explore and work through the root of their anxiety. Although anxiety can be overwhelming and debilitating, it’s highly treatable. Together, we can help you work through your worries, and find strategies that help you feel calmer, more at peace, and fulfilled.

Clinical Hypnotherapist

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15218 | +16462834794

This is an area of my specialty and I have varied hypnotherapy techniques that work towards putting you into a healthier frame of mind so you feel more self-control and calm. I, as your hypnotherapist will do most of the "hard work", while you as the client do not need to "help" the process of "going under" or be a master meditator, nor feel guilty about not being 'perfect'. If you are nervous or can't relax, that's ok too as a lot has developed of the traditional 1950's clinical hypnosis techniques, where one had to practically fall asleep! Come as you are, I've got you! (Even if you can only spare an hour in your car/ office/ living room and are stressed already about this process!)

Anxiety therapy is the first line of treatment for unhealthy anxiety. Your therapist can support you to put your mind at ease, recognize and address the patterns that may contribute to your symptoms. Anxiety therapy sessions can also help you identify coping mechanisms to manage anxiety and reclaim your life. You may feel uncomfortable or even anxious about going to therapy. You may think, “this will probably pass… maybe I should just push through it, and things will get better.” Rest assured that you are not alone. Many people have been there. But you don’t have to wait for your anxiety symptoms to get worse or to affect other areas of your life to seek help. We are here to help.

Portland, Oregon 97204 | 503-606-6412

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

Most of us experience anxiety and/or stress at some point. However, when it persists and reaches a heightened level of intensity, therapy may be needed and can have a powerful impact on reducing these symptoms. Talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are two approaches shown to have success in treating anxiety. Talk therapy allows for my clients to open up and unburden themselves from the weight of what they may be carrying and validating their experience and emotions. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps address and shift any unhealthy thinking or behaviors associated with the anxiety. This can significantly improve ones ability to manage their anxiety.

We’ll start by getting on the same page: what is bringing you to therapy, what are our goals for incorporating medication, and what would it look like to truly feel “better?” We’ll discuss your past history with both psychotherapy and medication, the current challenges you’re facing, and what you hope to get out of this process. You and I will collaborate on a treatment plan that maps out how we’re going to get there.

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.
