Stress management starts with identifying sources of stress. Your true sources of stress aren’t always obvious, and it’s all too easy to overlook your own stress-inducing thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Together we look at your thought patterns that may keep you stuck in your stress cycle. Anxiety is a natural bodily response to a stressful or dangerous situation. Your body reacts and you experience a racing heart, sweaty palms and shortness of breath. For some people this reaction is more intense and can last hours. Anxiety can be overwhelming and take control of your life. Anxiety may coexist with depression. Call today at 613 287 3799 to learn how you can take control of your stress.

Anxiety and Stress are both life and living challenges. They are part of the normal obstacles we face in our lifetime, be it in health, in illness, in marriage, in couple and relationship issues, in aging and with our children. The thoughts, feelings and behaviors associated with them can often overwhelm and even paralyze us when they occur. In a supportive and empathic environment I help people understand and demystify these feelings and find coping strategies so that they can overcome these crippling experiences in order to live productively again.

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 and stress are so pervasive in modern society, it is hard to even imagine not experiencing these things. Stress and some experiences of anxiety are "normal" (although I dislike using that word), however if you are finding that stress and anxiety are impacting your day-to-day functioning, it may mean you could benefit from some professional support. We will look at triggers for your anxiety and stress, and begin to understand your patterns of interacting with these unpleasant feelings. Ultimately, our goal will be to move towards a place of acceptance and coping.

Anxiety and stress can be situational to an event, loss, disappointment, or fear. Anxiety can also be a baseline hypervigilent state, with a relapsing, remitting quality. It is always parasitic, unpleasant and toxic to those whom it infects. It is also hard on our elationships. Therapy with me seeks to achieve remission or soften the anxiety and then we will focus on preventing relapse. I see anxiety as biological, situational and interpersonal. Therapy will explore precipitating stressors, contributory biological factors, and personal factors and in a Cognitive and narrative model we explore new ways to interact with a goal of remission or at least softenning the distress.

Dealing with anxiety and stress involves some understanding of the situation and what might be causing or contributing to a problem. Often it will be the unique way in which we think about something said to be our automatic thoughts and from there we learn to evaluate them for any sign of distortion. Our thoughts for example, may come across as catastrophizing or seeing only the worst in an event which will naturally lead to anxiety/stress. In counselling we can gain some valuable insight and achieve greater awareness learning to step back examining with a different lens and therefore expanding our perspective. This serves to allow for a more enlightened thought or mood to emerge.

Anxiety and Stress are the most common issues that I work with. Anxiety can take many forms so I will take the time to understand the specific type of anxiety with you. We will start to track the anxiety frequency and severity to better understand it. We will then work in session on coping strategies to decrease the impact that the anxiety is having on your daily life.

Anxiety and stress seem to be typical in today's hectic life. Individuals, each being unique from another, experience many different symptoms. These symptoms occur when part of the brain is perceiving danger, danger which could be remembered from the past. When understanding what is triggering one's perceived danger, and becoming aware of these symptoms/antecedents when the symptoms are mild, the anxiety can be challenged rationally to minimize the stress felt which ultimately can minimize the symptoms.
