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.

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!

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)

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.

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.

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.

In 11561 - Nearby to Plainedge.

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.

The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.

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.
