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.

Stress is a normal part of our daily experience. Too much stress can bring devastating consequences including stomach issues, increased blood pressure, difficulty sleeping, increased fatigue, reduced immunity to illness, physical pain and can make us more vulnerable to mood issues like anger and depression. Finding proven ways to cope with stress can provide joy throughout our entire lives. When we stop worrying about our lives and start being present and actively participating in our daily world, we often find the relief and comfort that we have been seeking all along. Together we can find the strategies that work best for you.

Many people live each day with anxiety and stress. But you can learn to cope and manage your anxiety to make each day more enjoyable. With the use of cognitive-behavioral techniques, you can take control of your negative thoughts. With my research and specialization focus on trauma and chronic traumatic exposure in parents and children, I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which allows the child (along with their parent) to process, understand, and cope with trauma and improve symptoms.

In 11434 - Nearby to Old Westbury.

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist

In 11516 - Nearby to Old Westbury.

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.

Every person out there can relate to feeling anxiety or stress at some point in their life. However, it is a different story when that stress or anxiety impedes your ability to function on a day to day basis. For those who struggle in this manner, it is difficult to convey how horrific the experience is. After working in the field and helping people successfully overcome debilitating anxiety, I truly believe that psychotherapy and the right treatment approach can help anyone become the best version of themselves. It has always been a pleasure of mine seeing the transition take place and knowing that treatment has made such a difference for so many who never thought they could do it!

Fear is about the past, anxiety is about what we imagine will happen in the future. Fear and Anxiety mean, by definition, that you are not living in the moment. In order to help you identify what is causing you anxiety, the approach is for you to vent what you are feeling and how it is hindering you. I will ask strategic questions that will make you think, behave differently, and take back your life! I will offer you as many approaches to handle your anxiety as you will need to relinquish the hold it has had over you. Stress occurs when we feel out of control. I will help you manage it and even reduce the instances of stress in your life.

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 are signals that something is going wrong and you need to make changes. If you feel anxious or stressed ask yourself, " Who or what are you angry at? Or, what are you doing that is painful, without limits and leaves you in a state of Dis-Ease/ Anxious and Stressed? Many times your anxiety can be expressed in panic attacks which are overwhelmed emotions unable to be contained. Psychotherapy will help you to express these pent up emotions and burdens.

Don't you just hate those people you know who never get nervous and are always cool as a cucumber? There aren't very many of them. For most of us, stress causes anxiety. All anxiety has the potential to cause debilitating consequences. My work with people prone to anxiety is to isolate the stressors that caused their anxiety and by using cognitive as well as interpersonal interventions carve a path towards deflating the stressors and teaching how to deal with the anxiety. Panic attacks, OCD,agoraphobia and trauma are some other anxiety based challenges. I teach my patients how to deal with the" anxiety beast" for It is merely in our thoughts. We can control our thoughts. I show you how.

Anxiety and stress are two of the most mind consuming elements people have. They are hard to control and manage. They are emotionally draining and fatiguing. You may be experiencing high levels of anxiety and stress and think that only medication can help you. I believe that people have the power within to be more helpful to themselves than they may believe or know. Having a willingness, desire, and commitment to try new behaviors and feel better prove positive for many people I work with.

My experience is that everyone can overcome anxiety. Whether the anxiety is experienced as physical discomfort in the belly, chest or throat; or annoying, intrusive thoughts in the form of "what if's;" or general restlessness, counseling can be wonderfully helpful and curative. My own method includes: 1. teaching relaxation and breathing techniques, 2. mindfulness practice or hypnosis to enhance your ability to focus, as well as to support your sense of control over your own thoughts, and 3. psychotherapy to help you move forward in your life by understanding and overcoming the deeper causes of your worries and discomfort.

I have several strategies that have proven to be very effective in helping my clients decrease their anxiety. I utilize cognitive therapy to help clients develop a toolbox with as many tools as possible to help them cope with their anxiety. This helps them get through they day, the hour or the minute so that they can successfully complete daily tasks and pursue personal and professional goals. I utilize psychodynamic psychotherapy to help clients become aware of the underlying issues that may be contributing to their anxiety. Once they have gained this insight, they are able to cope with their anxiety better and live their lives with more confidence and joy.

Good therapy helps uncover the root causes of anxiety, and finds ways to transcend the specific current issues and deals with the underlying sense of worry that seems to arise from nowhere. Anxiety arises due to one's own natural energies being turned back on oneself. I help you see that the anxiety and circular, repeated thinking are due to deeply-held messages. These restrictive messages cause you to feel that authentic self-expression is dangerous, not wanted, and unhealthy. Gradually discovering old traumas and hidden beliefs so they are fully understood and digested, frees you to live in more peace and more fulfilled.

Let’s transform your anxiety. Let’s remove old patterns of thinking and fearing to believing in the power of who you are ! You can heal your life .... that’s what one of my favorite authors, Louise Hay states in all of her books she wrote. I believe it to be true. Do you ? When you believe, anything is possible!!! When worry and self doubt rear their ugly heads, let’s be more compassionate to ourselves. Don’t you think you are worth it? Let’s change our thoughts. Patterns were constructed when you were young and do not even realize you are still playing them out today. Let’s change that narrative together. I know you can do this ! You are here now.
