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.

Many people have anxiety. Anxiety is the most common problem that clients bring into psychotherapy. Anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness, and dread. Sometimes you can say what it is bothering you. Your job or relationship may be causing you stress and you want to solve the problems. You don’t know how to deal with the mounting pressures. Friends will often say “don’t worry about it” but that doesn’t help. Sometimes you don’t really know what is bothering you it just is. I can show you how spot these feelings before they overwhelm you and what you can do about it. We’ll get clear on what has been difficult for you and how have you been feeling.

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.

In 11434 - Nearby to Thomaston.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Our clinicians often Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques to treat individuals struggling with anxiety. 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.

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.

Here, as with depression, the problems come in many many forms and involved many different additional feelings as part of them - anger, depression, rage, discouragement, frustration, resentment, and so on. Your particular constellation of these feelings, your unique collection of symptoms, and of course your personality - your way of experiencing and handling life - all play into how your therapy will go. Some relief is usually quick with simpler anxiety and stress symptoms. More ingrained anxiety, forming your longer standing mode of interacting with the world, will take longer to abate.

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. That’s the first step.

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.

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.

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.
