Clenched and sweaty hands, upset stomach, you feel like you might just throw up and pass out. These are symptoms of an anxiety attack.

Don't let anxiety and stress rob you of your confidence and ability to live life to its fullest.

Often we are bombarded by stressful life circumstances that can steal our peace. Many of us have come through very painful and challenging experiences that have shaken our ability to create safety. All of which leave us vulnerable to anxiety and we can easily find ourselves in a constant state of panic. In my approach, I support you to make sense of these feelings and get them to work for you rather than against you. As we make sense of our fears and learn ways to create internal safety, we can create a peace that comes from the inside out. Like the quote says " I am not afraid of the storms, for I know how to sail my ship." Our work is to strengthen your ability to sail the storms.

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

93 Bell Farm Road, Suite 102, Barrie, Ontario

Anxiety is perhaps the most misunderstood emotional response and most persistent issue I see in my practice. I offer effective strategies and ways to understand and reduce anxious feelings. Dealing effectively with anxiety includes leaving therapy with a felt sense that you are capable of coping not just with anxious feelings, but also fear, anger, and sadness. Clients report that they leave their therapy experience with me feeling like they have a much clearer understanding of what the anxiety is (and isn't), how to manage or totally reduce the anxiety they feel in the moment, and how to stop it from holding them back from the happiness they are looking for.

Registered Social Worker & Clinical Traumatologist

80 Bradford Street, Unit 510, Barrie, Ontario

Anxiety and stress can be very challenging in a person's life and can lead to avoidance of certain situations or withdrawal from social interactions, this in turn leads to poor social functioning and poor interpersonal relationships. Being able to learn new coping strategies to manage anxiety and stress along with working on negative self-talk and thoughts can mean increased social functioning, increased comfort in otherwise challenging situations and more social interaction with family and friends.

Registered Clinical Social Worker

Stress, Anxiety, and phobias can leave you feeling immobilized and powerless and unable to cope well. I can help you develop sound strategies to reducing your symptoms, help manage them, and to eradicate some of these from your life. I have successfully done so using the following modalities: Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques, and Energy Therapies, and using strategies that promote neuroplasticity which have helped to change distorted thinking and feeling patterns.

I teach people who suffer from anxiety techniques for diffusing it. Sometimes this involves breathing, toning, writing, exercise. It depends on who you are and what kind of anxiety you feel. When the symptoms of anxiety are lessened, it is often important to understand the cause. If it is your life circumstances, can you change them? If not, can you stop blaming yourself for the things which are not under your control? If your anxiety comes from expectations that your parents or other influential people had of you, we can work to change those expectations from the past into more realistic ideas of how to handle your present given the real circumstances of your life and of who you are.

Anxiety Counsellor

Monica Adair, M.A. Psychology, RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist, Canadian Certified Counsellor

78 William Street, Barrie, Ontario

The truth is that we all know something about managing anxiety and stress. On a primitive level, our automatic defenses of "fight, flight, freeze, or overactivity" are utilized to get us through the crisis. But for many people, these responses have been over-activated for certain reasons and they are left with the crippling effects. Sometimes people aren't even sure why they are feeling such turmoil. It is as though you are in a fog- anxiety and stress steal away ones sense of direction, concentration, and identity. If anxiety or stress is eroding your life, I would be happy to help you find satisfaction and fullness of life using well researched techniques paired with a gentle approach.

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 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.

Registered Psychotherapist

Another aspect I see incredibly regularly being in counselling is anxiety and stress. I have extensive exposure to these common symptoms in everyday life and know how to effectively help an individual address the root causes of these negative thoughts and feelings. I have experience dealing with social anxiety and exposure therapy, using aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy to alter thoughts and perceptions and even hypnotherapy to address deeply rooted anxiety and stress ingrained in a persons psyche. Furthermore I will provide a comfortable and relaxed setting in which to discuss these uncomfortable thoughts and feelings and help to ensure they do not weigh you down in your own life.

Research-based evidence suggests that if you are exposed to traumatic events in childhood or adulthood are correlated with an increased probability of suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety. There is a reason to believe that multiple traumas may cause more severe PTSD symptoms at the same time raising fears, anxieties, stress and even experiences of panic in everyday life. Do not hesitate to contact me to talk about your symptoms. They will not go away just on their own...
