According to the National Institute of Mental Health, anxiety disorders are the most commonly diagnosed disorders in the USA. Each year 19 million Americans are affected by generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD or specific phobias (e.g. claustrophobia). I help you identify core conflicts underlying anxiety such as anger, ambivalence about autonomy and fears of abandonment and safely replace maladaptive coping mechanisms with healthier ones. I help re-educate your negative self-talk with positive, productive inner talk and teach you breathing and relaxation techniques and mindfulness meditation to control physical symptoms.

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.

There is so much to do! So much to balance. Am I doing this as well as I could? As well as I should. Anxiety and stress is a sign that the "critic" in us is working overtime. The critic is ensuring that we are not feeling that we are worthy, that we deserve. It tells us that we are lacking, that we are less-than. We need to normalize these feelings, create a safe space, create boundaries and realistic expectations.

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.

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.

Helping you find wholeness...

124 East 40th Street, Ste 404, New York, New York 10016 | 212-655-9605

Stress can be felt from feeling pressure at work (or from not working), from always being on the go but still finding not enough time in the day, from feeling more responsibilities than you can handle, from being unable to deal with small stressors when they come up, from finding some areas of your life having significant effects on other areas of your life, or from many other sources. You can get beyond the effects of this by discussing what is going on and finding alternate strategies to deal with situations. Christopher looks forward to heling you on this journey as you see to come to a place of wholeness and peace.

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

We all have multiple roles and responsibilities in our lives—as parents, bosses, children, spouses, colleagues and friends. They help define who we are and can be immensely fulfilling and rewarding. They are often, however, the source of anxiety, fear, doubt and other obstacles to our happiness. These obstacles are usually deeply rooted in the expectations of the people, cultures and institutions that have surrounded us all our lives. Using mindfulness techniques, breathing exercises, and relaxation training I help clients realize the sources and triggers of their stress anxiety. I help them create a state of internal strength and calm that allows them to use their natural creativity to find

Many people struggle with anxiety and stress, and I work frequently with these issues in my practice. These issues take different forms for each person, and therapy is individualized for the person with whom I am working. There are thoughts and thought patterns that contribute to a person's anxiety and sometimes panicky symptoms. Through integrating cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques with also exploring the underlying emotions that are contributing to the anxiety, we can work together to reduce your anxiety and stress.

Anxiety can cause a great deal of suffering. Fortunately, it is one of the most treatable problems. Anxiety problems, from panic attacks to compulsions, are highly responsive to the right forms of treatment. While anxiety itself can be scary, the good news is our treatments are very effective at reducing the emotional pain, changing the related behaviors, and can help to restore healthy relationships that may have been impacted by the anxiety issues.

Anxiety is simply a difficult thing to experience. It ranges from a constant feeling of distress to an acutely overpowering feeling that seems to consume. It is also quite common. Years of working with this issue have made to clear to me that part of mastering anxiety is gaining a working knowledge of why ones gets anxious. Insight is not enough however. When awareness is achieved then one can move to replace old patterns with new ones. It is these new and increasingly adaptable patterns that leads to a successful mastery of anxiety.
