Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

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.

Mindfulness-based therapy is the primary approach I use with clients to provide tools and skills for managing and reducing stress and anxiety. For stress and anxiety issues, it is important to realize that most stress and anxiety is caused by mental habits and specific thoughts, and addressing those thoughts - and changing them - is a very effective way of learning to manage your anxiety.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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...

Anxiety management involves helping the client reduce the level, frequency and intensity of the anxiety so that daily functioning is not impaired and core underlying conflicts are resolved. Clients are encouraged to increase their understanding of underlying core beliefs,cognitive distortions, negative thoughts and self talk that promote worry, anxiety, panic, and social phobias. Positive coping mechanisms, focus on mindfulness, relaxation, distraction, and increasing self esteem, and utilizing brief solution focused approaches, can help clients gain a sense of personal control and reinforce their hope for the future.
