Anxiety is a general term for states, ways of being, or disorders that cause nervousness, fear, apprehension, and excessive worry. Anxiety affects how we feel, think, and behave, and can manifest real physical symptoms. Mild anxiety is vague and unsettling, and can be a normal response to stressful situations. Severe anxiety can be extremely debilitating and seriously impact day-to-day life: it interferes with your relationships and activities, it stops you from being functional—that’s when you know you have crossed the line from normal, productive anxiety into the territory of an anxiety disorder and it's time to get help.

CBT refers to a class of interventions with the basic premise that maladaptive cognitions (general beliefs, or schemas, about the world, the self, and the future, giving rise to specific and automatic thoughts in particular situations) contribute to the maintenance of emotional distress and behavioral problems. The basic model posits that therapeutic strategies to change these maladaptive cognitions lead to changes in emotional distress and problematic behaviors. Our clinicians help you learn how to challenge and control these thoughts so you can regain control of your life.

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.

Counseling clients with anxiety and managing stress is my reason for choosing this field to work in. For a period of my life, I was overcome with anxiety and panic attacks. This is no longer the case and my belief and my understanding that this can happen for clients I have seen as a result of getting help. The feelings are painful and in my case, became unbearable.

No one is anxiety free but it should not ruin 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.

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.

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

In 07450 - Nearby to Pleasantville.

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.

Anxiety is a feeling that we experience at some point in our life. It’s that feeling of intense nervousness and fear that translate into physical symptoms. For some, the experience occurs more frequently with more severity and can go from occurring periodically to an everyday feeling. It can take a toll on your daily life ranging from your health, outlook on life to how you function socially. You will learn where your feelings of anxiety are stemming from and why they are so persistent. You will also become aware of how your physical and emotional symptoms not only connect, but how they trigger one another. Becoming complacent with anxiety shouldn't be a norm. Let's find your happiness.
