When working with anxiety and stress, my belief is that these symptoms have information for my clients. Often clients will come to me because they want to stop feeling anxiety and stress - I work with the symptoms by way of being with them differently rather than pushing symptoms away. Doing this allows space to find out why these symptoms exist ultimately empowering my clients to better help themselves in regards to the underlying cause of the anxiety and stress.

I incorporate existential psychotherapy to help clients better understand their anxiety and stress. Existential psychotherapy is a style of therapy that places emphasis on the human condition as a whole. Existential therapy uses a positive approach that applauds human capacities and aspirations while simultaneously acknowledging human limitations. I then work collaboratively with clients, often utilizing a cognitive behavioural therapy approach, in changing unwanted thoughts and behaviours.

It is normal to worry and feel stressed about life's problems and pressures. But when compounded symptoms begin to overwhelm us to the point where we are getting headaches, heart palpitations, a churning stomach, cold sweats, sleepless nights, weight loss, obsessive thoughts, a distressed GI tract - then we need help to break the adrenaline-fear cycle. Anxiety feeds on fear and needs to be confronted, appropriately and safely, with relaxation techniques, new perceptions and constructive thinking patterns. A counsellor can help you do this.

Anxiety, stress and trauma are The Refuge's main areas of focus. Our holistic approach will help you address not only the mental aspects of anxiety and stress (core beliefs, negative thoughts, expectations and demands, etc.), but also their emotional and physical/somatic components. We can help you build resiliency through mindfulness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance skills that help you understand how to read and respond to the non-verbal cues in your body and nervous system. If you have been conditioned to override or ignore your needs in order to caretake for others, we can support you to honour yourself while also attending to your commitments in a balanced way.

Not being in control of your own thoughts or emotions can be a significant factor in anxiety and stress. Engaging in therapy that encourages self acceptance and regulation of emotions and thoughts can lead to a reduction in anxiety and stress. Having an increased ability to manage emotions can lead to feelings of inner calm, increased relaxation and improved concentration.

Stress and anxiety is a part of everyone's day to day lives. However, when it becomes difficult to function due to loss of sleep, change in appetite, panic attacks, upset stomach, aches & pains, etc. therapy can be most beneficial. I use various relaxation techniques, deep breathing, mindfulness meditation, as well as talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy techniques (addressing self defeating automatic thinking patterns which effect our mood and behavior). I can teach you how to manage unpleasant symptoms related to stress and anxiety.

Unfortunately anxiety and stress seem to be a way of life in these times. We can become addicted to the cortisol that can curse through our bodies in these times. It is important that we learn to work with our bodies as well as the thoughts - self talk that contributes to the reaction of stress and anxiety. We also need to work with the present situations and past occurrences (parental home experience) and see how these make contributions.

Anxiety is rampant in our time. The pace of life and how much we are expected to produce, the old metaphors of our bodies as machines are no longer working for us. I use meditations, grounding activities with nature items indoors, as well as going outdoors for sessions. Particularly the outdoor time really invites clients to reconnect with their bodies, minds and spirts and brings calm, peace and perspective back into those moments.

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 our approach, we 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.

I believe we all have moments in our lives when we experience stress and anxiety. Every single one of us could benefit from tools taken from mindfulness exercises as I do in my personal life. I tend to address these issues from a teaching and practicing approach with clients. Its one thing to suggest and explain something, but there has been greater success when we try it out together in session. I have used role play exercises from time to time when the client feels it would be beneficial to decrease the intensity of their anxiety. I love when my clients confidence starts to build because they have implemented what we have practiced in session and learned that it works!

Is anxiety, panic or stress making it difficult for you to relax and enjoy yourself and interfering with the way you're able to live your life? I'll help you not just cope with the anxiety, panic and stress you’re experiencing, but also reduce and relieve your overall levels or anxiety and stress, and overcome much of your anxiety, panic and stress altogether. Many of my clients have found that putting their life of anxiety, panic and stress behind them is much more possible than they ever imagined. We'll use cognitive therapy (CBT) and mindfulness to help you calm your anxiety and worrying and alleviate stress and panic so they no longer get in the way of your ability to enjoy your life.

Stress and anxiety when present within healthy limits can stimulate, motivate, challenge, warn and activate our bodies to react accordingly to the situation. When it's too much, too intense and for too long, stress and anxiety lead to poor functioning, impairment and exhaustion resulting in stress and anxiety overload, contributing heavily to triggering anxiety disorders. In my therapy, I use therapeutic approaches and techniques that help reduce stress and anxiety and enhance the quality of your life and build your emotional resilience. You develop skills to minimize distress and maximize efficacy in many areas of your living and live life in a happier and healthier manner
